That's pretty bad man. You're lucky you weren't killed. I hope you heal quickly and are in a new C3 soon.

I hope you make a full recovery and get back in saddle soon.
BTW, I think it might be totaled.
Take care,

I was curious, because sometimes a seatbelt will pin you in & down & the door goes over you. Sometimes your almost better off not wearing a belt & being tossed to the otherside away from harms way....
it does happen now & then.

A little ZAINO will cure that little scuff, dont worry about it !!!

WOW that was a hard hit. It looks like the frame rail saved your life. That would take quite an impact to bend it like that. Hopefully you make a full recovery.

That was some impact!
Glad you're recovering.
Now what will happen with insurance? Will the Ins Co's battle it out, or will you be cut a check for full value of the Vette to replace it?

Take care and you were VERY LUCKY.

Glenn

BTW, did someone get in there and swipe your center gauges?
