This one comes to us through our buddies down under Modified Car Forums, of Australia. They capped this vid from a night of show cars and drag racing in Cedar Falls, Iowa at the Cedar Falls Raceway in July.
The 1970 Buick Convertible is a purpose built wheel stander was about 100 feet into its demo wheel stand when it gets a little too close to the guard rail and rolls a number of times.
The driver ‘Jeff Wild’ of Jeff Wild Racing walked away uninjured, however the Buick is a complete write off. He does mention in the comments of the video that he is going to take all the good parts and build another 1970 Buick Convertible the same as this one was.
Some people never learn…
Jeff also mentions the reason for the crash, in Jeff’s words :
“The AntiRoll Bar mount on the Passenger side of the 12blt broke at the starting line! Once I looked to the left the second time and saw Grass and no Track I Knew I Was Screwed!!! Let off the gas, pushed my hands on the wheel, slammed my feet to the floor, and pushed my back to the seat! It was a Wild RollerCoaster from Hell”
Another angle of the pants-filling blunder.
