1/5: Car goes airborne, hits home



From MSNBC Week in Pics comes this beaut, the result of a car chase followed by an embankment and well, it's all very simple...

What do we have there, a Subaru Outback? (No pun intended, I can't tell what make it is)

     Picture it, kicking back watching the Simpsons and WHAM a truck comes through the wall. Hate it when that happens. Probably knocked over every drink in the place to boot.

No. It's most definitely a fucking Jeep Cherokee. Goddamn SUV's.

well, shit.

i most certainly know that if a jeep came crashing through my wall, i'd be on the bitch about the spilled coke.

It makes you wonder how the wife took it when he got home drunk again last night ...

"Hon, what was that noise?"

"Nothin'. I was just parkin' the car. Go back to sleep."

"OK. Don't forget, the Jeep has to go in for new brake pads tomorrow."

     Absolutley friggin' right. There's no exceptable excuse to abuse a perfectly innocent Coke. It's just not right.

     'Sides if it spilled in you lap do you really think anyone would believe that's coke? That would be a story told forever...

     On the bright side no one would question that the driver got beat up in the accident as opposed to afterward. He was also probably to messed up to really know what was going on anyway. Not that I'm suggesting anything, I'm sure any bruises he had really did occur during the wreck. No, really.

Look at the house's siding, it's not angled in, it's out. Is this the exit wound? If so, that must have been quite an interesting series of events.

It's a Jeep thing, we wouldn't understand.

Aero and auto meet again.



This is a Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR leaving the earth during the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The car did 3 complete backflips in midair, coming to rest right-side-up. The driver walked away. (In the second panel, we are looking at the back of the car, which is coming toward us. It is upside-down.)

Keeping this from occuring is exactly why cars have spoilers (the wings on the trunk and front bumper). A tuned race car like the CLK GTR generates enough downforce at full speed to literally drive inverted.

Click here for a short film of the event.

What amkes me laugh is these pretty pissy cars that have been pumped up with spoilers that would hae sweet fuck all effect and the woners think they are really l33t...sad

Fuck this think must've gone straight though that sign.

Well...having done a balllistic critique of the AfghaniVan, I did notice that, but refrained from commenting. My take is that the car entered on the side of the house we're seeing (look at the top edge of the hole; looks pushed in to me) but after the initial penetration that it crushed the wall from about the windowsill level (the lower edge of the car AKA the driver's side) down, pushing debris mostly outward (especially the vinyl siding) until it reached the floor and got some additional support.
