Cool Looking For Quote

Anybody have that quote about when I die don't want to be in a nursing home with tubes plugged in everywhere, but want to swerve into a two-wheel drift and exclaim, what a ride!

Google is your friend...

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -- WOW-- What a Ride!

This one?

"When I die, I want to die peacefully in my sleep like Grandfather did...
not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car."

Or maybe not the one you were thinking of?

Re: Looking For Quote

"My concept of death for a long time was to come down that mountain road at 120 and just keep going straight right there, burst out through the barrier and hang out above all that . . . and there I'd be, sitting in the front seat, stark naked, with a case of whiskey next to me and a case of dynamite in the trunk . . . honking the horn, and the lights on, and just sit there in space for an instant, a human bomb, and fall down into that mess of steel mills. It'd be a tremendous goddam explosion. No pain. No one would get hurt. I'm pretty sure, unless they've changed the highway, that launching place is still there. As soon as I get home, I ought to take the drive just to check it out."

Not long after that statement Hunter was shot out of a cannon instead.
