Everyone knows that you need a civic with green neons and $10k worth of overnight parts from Japan to get under a semi.
These cars seem to hold up awesome.

HUGE thanks for the link to that site. I never heard of it before, but I am now the proud owner of a set of used Tein Flexes thanks to it.

A set of door bars and a roll bar would have helped...

That's what happens when you buy an automatic Miata and put wheels that ugly on it... karma.

I do that daily for fun. Big deal...

Seriously though, that is pretty awesome that he wasn't all that hurt from it.

The funny thing is that I did the same thing 5 years ago when I was 18. I just started dating this girl and we went out on a Thursday night, a couple of drinks and we went back to my house and pulled an all nighter. Next thing I know, it's Friday morning so I start driving to work and I fell as sleep. I open my eyes and I'm heading towards a 18 wheeler, BAM! Right into the back wheels of the truck. I spin out, do a 180 and hit it again with the back of my car. The truck driver kept driving! He didn't even feel my car hitting him. Lucky me I hit the wheel and didn't go under like that guy, but my car was totalled! Tear

You just need to find the right truck to go under.

Looking at the pics there is no way someone lived through that! Absolutely amazing.

My head doesn't spin around driving the Miata as much as riding a motorcycle but I'm much more alert in it vs. my wife's sport ute. I figure 5% of drivers won't see you regardless of what you drive. About 20% when you are on a bike. I figure a Miata falls somewhere in between.

Awestruck!

Could you imagine what that must have felt / sounded / looked like for the driver of that car?
