Re: Hey guys, who's car is this? one of ours?

There was a thread about that on here back when it happened. He was also on another site for his local area's Mazda scene, I think that's where most of the pictures and comments were located.

Re: Hey guys, who's car is this? one of ours?

Yes it is. HERE's the thread about it.

His story

Quote:
So me and some friends were up on south mountain. I came around a corner doing 25 (a reasonable speed for the turn and my car) but at the end of the turn I see a car that was halfway in my lane I swirved to avoid the car went off into the dirty my car locked up I skid, hit a largeish rock and then skid right back onto the street. When my car stopped my front right wheel flew off and kept rolling down the street. Here is what the car looked like before this mornings incident:
The rim was shit. The fucking spokes all broke off. The front bumper is hanging off as long as the sideskirt. And there may be internal damage too as I hit that rock... I was leaking oil really bad...so idk.
Oh and the asshole on the other side of the road just took off. Didn't even stop.
Here's a post with the text of the OP quoted in it since the OP was deleted.

Then this video shows up on youtube completely destroying the guy's story.
[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W70alNVgQwM&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mazd a3forums.com%2Findex.php%3Ftopic%3D125792.60&f eature=player_embedded#[/url]

And finally the truth
Quote:
Your right, that is in fact me....
However...

I modified my story because thats the story I told the insurance company. Regardless of what happened the insurance does not ALWAYS cover accidents. Most likely if I would have called the cops they would have cited me for "Failure to control my vehicle". I've seen it happen. So yes, I lied, because I didn't want stories floating around.

I came up on the turn too fast, and just over steered. Its was a mistake. It doesn't mean I don't know how to drive so if anyone wants to come say that to my face please do. I'm not scared of a bunch of people who want to talk shit on the internet forums.

Yes, I lied. Sorry. Not much else to say.


As to the video, I never even owned a copy of it.

Re: Hey guys, who's car is this? one of ours?

The best part to me is that even after that happened, he hasn't bothered to learn about car dynamics. Notice how he says, in his half-assed attempt at self redemption... "I came up on the turn too fast, and just over steered. Its was a mistake." Well, he's right about obviously going into the turn too fast, but he clearly hit the brakes when he shouldn't have and UNDERSTEERED off the road. I really hope he takes some sort of car control class before trying to drive like that again.

Re: Hey guys, who's car is this? one of ours?

Come on you guys. Did you really bring this subject up again?? He's a member on the local Mazda forums here. I've never met him in person, and not many people have from that forum. But it seems everyone has pretty much forgotten about it. An update on this car...
He got it repaired after that accident. Then it was painted Aurora Blue (it looked hot). Then a teenage girl pulled out in front of him, totalling the car. He now has a black MS6, and I've seen him driving it around here.

Anyway...
