I guess this could be posted elsewhere but this is where I drop most of my posts so ill leave it here.
Guys, this is very serious!!!! Two day ago I lost a very close friend of mine. He rolled his car and he and his passenger were killed instantly. Lil Billy was coming home from the gym at 6:40 pm on a well known road and failed to negotiate a curve weve been around a hundred times. The reports said he was traveling over 120 mph. He was driving a 2003 Mitsu Lancer Evo VIII. which is one of the nicest handeling cars Ive ever had the pleasure of driving. No body knows exactly what happened, there were no witnesses to the actual accident so your guess is as good as mine. None the less....hes gone.
The reason im telling you all this is just to remind everybody to be careful. I know that most of us have performance in mind and we want to drive to the full potential or our cars. Well, I guess Billy really wanted to see what he could do, with the full confidence of a brand new car and the fearlessness of a twenty year old, he ran that curve.
This car should have easily skated around that corner without any problem. now hes gone, and all this over some stupidness. I dont even think he was racing anyone. He brought the mystery to his grave, and the important thing to take away from this tragedy is that IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU. I dont mean to be negative but, I just want to remind everyone to USE YOUR HEAD when you get behind that wheel. Even though you think youre a good driver something out there will get you if you dont THINK. Your car may be built for speed and cornering but so was his. I just dont want anyone to have to go through what weve been through over the past couple of days.
Lil Billy was always Happy go Lucky and Had the world by the Ballz. He was being groomed to take over a multi milliondollar company, three weeks until his 21st B-day and this happened. It sux....it really does.
Just be careful out there. It can happen and will if youre not smart about things.

R.I.P. Lil' Billy .....you will be very very missed.

I hear ya brother.....lost my best friend my sophmore year in highschool. He had divorced parents, the first year his parents allowed him to really go out at all and he was starting point guard on the varsity Basketball team. Josh was my best friend in the world even tho the last year we didn't hang out much because of his new basketball team friends. Anyway, fact of the story is, he got in a new Z28 camaro with another punkass teamate of his and the kid was racing some girls along side a blindspot before a hill, and a semi was coming up the other way, josh being killed instantly and the punk that was driving somehow managed to crawl out with only minor scratches and a messed up jaw.. How unreal.. Josh had already been discussing a scholarship for the University of Michigan and this stupid incident happens. I'll tell you something, if it's one thing in my life that will stick with me forever, it's this incident and it haunts me as clear as day. fact is, a lot of people lose someone close to them, and it sucks.....but it's good to hear the guy had friends that cared..

I feel your pain, between my senior year of high school and my junior year of college I had Eight friends lose their lives in auto related accidents, But the most painful one was my friend Chris. Chris was a computer engineer, and was just getting his life started, he was engaged, and had a newborn baby. He was on his way to the grocery store when a mustang started messing with him (you know what I mean). Well he ended up racing the guy, and winning. The mustang owner must have been a soar looser, because he proceeded in chasing Chris down. Just as he caught up with chris he lost control and sideswiped chris forcing him into the back of a stopped navigator. The police said that chris was traveling roughly 100mph when the collision occured. It took them 11 hours to extract his body, he died instantly. The most disterbing part is that there was a baby in the navigator that he hit, and the child was seriously injured.

All of this for what, no trophies to be had, no awards to be one, only bad could have come from this. Chris was a great friend, and a great person that will always be remembered by that famalie as the jerk that almost killed their child. Isnt it sad that such a good person leaves behind such negative memories. Plus he left behind a broken family.
