PostSubject: Sunset accident   April 12th 2011, 9:19 am

I understand this '57 Chevy rolled down at the end of Sunset this past Sunday. Driver I understand is ok, but not the Chevy. This is a before shot as the car was being brought it. Does anyone know if this is a local car ?

Yea he was there a bunch last year. He supposedly was tired of going slow. So last year he put a 20,000 motor in it. I don't remember this guys name tho.

Hope he's okay, that is unfortunate. Don't know the fellow, but hate to see that happen to anyone. Sunset is not the place to try and break records. I can't believe this doesn't happen more often.

I was there when it happend he was very lucky he walked away from it! the car did hit a poll and spun around a bunch of times but never really flipped maybe on its side for alittle bit but when he came to a stop he was on all four wheels. the car body wasn't to bad it needs body work but I am sure he will be back up and running in a couple weeks!

No offense, but I can tell by the tow rig and car that there is not $20,000 under that hood. Can't be convinced of it no way, no how.
