There are no details on how this accident happened, but it looks the Camaro either drove face first into a blender or was in the middle of turning into a Transformer when it ran out of gas. Hey, at least the airbags worked. (Hat tip to Cesler!) [GM High-Tech Performance]
I wouldn't have cared about this a week ago. I looked at the photos of the new Camaro and I was all, "bleh."
But last week I was crossing the Howard Frankland bridge just after sunset in the rain, and for the first time I saw the new Camaro in person. It was a black one like the casualty in the photos above, and the driver was straight haulin' ass, throwing back spray. It was beautiful.
I sped up some to keep up along side and gawk. We were going about 90-95 when, I guess, the guy noticed my little 1.8L roadster hanging off his passenger-side rear, so he gunned it. With that gorgeous vee-eight growl it lunged up the up-slope of the high part of the bridge over the channel. I eased on back to 75-80 (what, I'm supposed to drag-race a new Camaro in a ten year old Miata?) and by the time I crested the hill, his tail-lights were hustling off and away in the distance.
Well, I'm not really a muscle-car guy, but it's good to see one being driven right, with a heavy right foot, for a change.
