That combo is dangerous even w/o the TT. With the TT that is a disaster waiting to happen. Sorry your baby is gone, hope you can build another one!

1. Crappy Tires
2. Very dangerous combo
3. Car IS getting a rebuild. That's a fact. And she's coming back with a vengeance . . . . time for new exterior and handling mods maybe?

dude im just thankful that u are ok, aspecially around the holidays. im sure that the people that care about u were freaked out after hearing about it.

despite the accident and what it has caused, just wait until the rebirth of the z, once u r able to get over the immediate trauma of it, the feeling of building up a z custom to your liking will just be such a thrill. its your baby coming to life. now you can have a truely amazing suspension and incredibly light z to accompany your engine.

although it is terrible that this has happened, i personally feel that everything happens for a reason. now you will understand the car better and will know what can happen if you take ur mind off of it for even a half second.

Gotta jet to a Z meet that I set up. Without my Z though. Kinda lame huh?

Anyways my car will be back better than ever before. Just wait and see. Monster Z in waiting. THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR THE KIND WORDS AND ENCOURAGEMENT. HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND BE SAFE . . . . . AND IF YOU HAVE A TWIN TURBO Z, DON'T BOTHER RACING A VETTE. YOU'LL SMOKE IT TO HELL AND BACK.

If you're talking about an EVO or STi, then HELL NO. I've even considered a used C6. Again, no. This Z is something really special to me at least . . . . and I could care less what others think.

Pictures added in original post.

I'm at a crossroads right now. Get a new Z for alotta money, swap engines, and maybe do new wheels/tires . . . . . or do a COMPLETE REVAMP of my current ride.

I can't decide!!! Part of me wants to just do the new Z, engine swap, easy etc, etc . . .

Another part of me wants to do everything custom, and get her rising from the ashes again. :(

PS - I didn't realize that I got my mother and her boyfriend in one of the pictures. Lol.
