Bad day for racing camaros

I went to the track the other day and wanted to curl up in a corner and cry... 3 camaros being towed away...makes me sick... 1 blown engine...1 twisted drive shaft along with the rest of the drive train...and 1 blown tranny followed by the constant smart ass remarkes of my buddy no longer... about the quality of the extinct camaro ...OUCH!!

DOH!

Well, at my car club's track rentals, usually at least 1 car goes home with a broken 10-bolt.
You know it's gonna give someday, but it still sucks when it happens lol.

Stuff happens. I've seen more blue ovals and hondas towed off my track than anything else however the Blue oval crowd is usually 2 to 1 represented here as well.

True dat!

Couple years back my car club hosted a F-Bodies VS Fords shootout.
8 Fords went home broken, compared to only 2 F-Bodies.
