Customizing an Audi...the hard way

From Portugal...when forwarded to me the email said "just how fast do you suppose this guy was going when he lost his argument with the tree?"


(.pdf file, open it and scroll down, each "page" is another photo--not the way I'd have put it together, but the pictures are ASTONISHING and worth the download time!)

According to the dash speedo/tach in picture twelve, only [email protected] rpm? Probably faster, huh?

Jaguar E Type did the same

Back around 1974/75 in Shrewsbury MA, a local Tennis Pro wrapped his Jag E Type around a tree going extremely fast one evening during the Christmas holidays. The car was cut in half and distributed similarly throughout the woods.

The driver's head exploded when it slammed into tree at the speed the car was traveling at. I'll never forget the brain-matter, tiny shards of bones and hair was imbedded into the bark. I took all my friends there to see the brains for a whole year.

As time went on, the driver's hair and shards of bones were eventually overgrown inside the tree's bark.

Oh yeah, I used to eat my lunches while I observed autopsies being performed three feet away. Sometimes I'd get sprayed with bodily fluids but it didn't seem to affect the tuna flavor. This was back when blood was safe.

Airbags go off depending on where the sensor is located. Most are located for head on or almost head on, nothing for side impact except for side curtains if the vehicle is so equipped. Not all are.

OK, to be fair, that was a bit 'tongue in cheek' - from the look at the damage, and the speed he was going, he could have wiped out the front sensors, before the bag had a chance to go off, or, as you say, a side impact - as you know, it takes a 'controlled, determined, serious' to make them go.
