That is ******* amazing.

I'm on the tallish side (6'2"), and have never really understood the hoopla about roll-bars. Always figured that if I flipped a Miata I was going to be dead regardless.

I wouldn't go that far. Under tray is still on, so that would have to be removed first.

Did you clean off some of the overspray on the tray when it was flipped over? What an eyesore.

Scary stuff.
Christ on a crutch that's nuts.

Mt. Hood Miata Club is doing a run down the Cascade Scenic Byway Saturday. You should come for the lulz.

He said defeatedly, slouched in a hospital waiting room chair while contemplating why he insisted on being present for the delivery.

Neither - we had been touge driving for an hour beforehand (needless to say, his Miata was SPANKING my Mustang), but we were just driving normally when this happened.

It was just a super sharp corner with no shoulder and gravel leading into a ditch. Proof positive that the tiniest miscalculation can ruin the whole day.

It would have been fine if he'd cut the corner into a 'racing' type line, but yeah, it was too fast to be staying in the lanes.

Wow, that's nuts... Just watching that makes me want to roll bar both my miatas.

Should be staying in the lanes anyway.
Plus I noticed the 10mph sign immediately in the video.
