This is by far the most improbable, incredible, and utterly stupefying video we have ever showed you here on BangShift. The scene is simple. A dewy night down south where a pair of Mustangs have gathered for a street race at “the normal spot”. We see the cars, we see the traction compound being laid down, and we talk to the starter. The guys are racing for $1,600. There’s a small block Ford in one Fox body and an LS or Chevy small block in the other one. It does not appear either of the cars have roll bars and we can clearly see at one point that the driver of one car is not wearing any safety gear and likely not even a seat belt.
As the cars launch down the street they both get loose but one far worse that the other. That car heads off the road and into a telephone pole at a very, very high rate of speed. It is a nightmarish scene and everyone goes sprinting to the car. The 1320Video camera guys are there and they too make a break for the wreck. They happen upon the scene where, amazingly, the driver is climbing out of the decimated remains of the car through the windshield opening, getting help from a spectator who was at the “race”.
The guy gets out and is then scene laying in the grass catching his breath or whatnot.
We’d go on some sort of a rant about how stupid this whole thing is, how stupid the guy is, how stupid the whole package looks but the reality is that the video does a far better job of that than we ever could.
This is insane. We’re glad the guy is not dead, but holy smoke. We’re speechless.
