I wouldn't doubt it if he was trying to "drift" with the other cars there. Lat i knew the fiero was designed to stick around corners not slide around them. That has to be the second most saddest sight i've ever seen with a fiero.

Or they lost control when they hit a patch of dirt in a tight corner while trying to catch up to another car (unless I am thinking of a different accident over on the Tail of the Dragon). There was no alcohol involved. If you want to call it "overdriving thier abbilities (sic)", that is fine....but accidents can happen any time we push a car to it's limit and run across an unexpected variable.

I think we should have a moment of silence for a very nice Fiero...and be thankful that we didn't lose a fellow Fiero owner in the process.

Personally, I think of the Chris LeDoux song..."I'll gladly take ten seconds in the saddle for a lifetime of watching from the stands". He definitely got his 10 seconds in the saddle.

I was thinking that looked like 129 (Tail of the Dragon) When My grandfrather was alive. For many years.. I drove that road at least 3 times a week. Sometimes more. In that time I seen everything from Big trucks flopped over ..To Mo pads , Sweet sports bike with body parts laying about. Many Sweet cars, Just a big ball Junk being pulled out of the woods. I have lost a few friends on that road.

I my self have drove that road.. When I shoud not have been driving. Like when my grandmother past away some 15 years ago.
But I do know every crack,bump and a few places where the grade is wrong and will toss your car up going into the next turn with any kind of speed.
I have had many close calls. A side swipe. Could have been a head on. Drove right over a sports bike one morning. I was driving a 71 ford truck.
Still remember seeing the guy that was on the bike. Sliding on his butt. He had a real A$$ Rash.


(Tail of the Dragon) Has changed alot over that last few years. The road is still the same. But the peaple driving it most are not.

can we get a google earth snapshot of this road? I'm curious.

ok... If this is where that happened then i retract my previous statement!!! Most people would lose it there. Does not seem like a good place for less experienced drivers. Side note: I wanna go!!!! It looks like fun!

Sonic50 wasn't on the Dragon, though he was on US 129, near Helen, Ga. He was with the V-Dub club when the accident happened. Sonic doesn't drink. At least he didn't at that time. He was only about 18 or 19 years old. He reported he hit some gravel on the inside of the curve.

CowsPatoot, what accident are you thinking of on RFTH? We've never had an accident during Run For The Hills, and we're going into our 14th year. Hope you'll come down and join us this year.

Hmmm I knew it... I knew that place (Grins) Ya got to love Helen GA. I go there every year. April Week ends thats clorer to the 20th. Theres a corvair meet there. The GA. side of 129 is a little bit narrow. (I think) and wash off from heavy rains sometimes leave gravel across the road.

he wasnt drunk, and he didnt hit gravel. if you read the comments on the video, he replys to someone saying that one of the wheels came loose and he lost control....I guess the lugs weren't tight enough. after rolling down the hill it landed on its roof, and fuel somehow started pouring out the tank, they luckily were still conscious and escaped before it went up in flames.

Were they doing side impact tests back then? I wonder how it would have held up. My guess is well.

Hwy 129 Tail of the Dragon at Deal's Gap. 318 curves in 11 miles. I've been there twice. First time on my Kawasaki Concours, second time on my Yamaha Vmax, both times had my wife as a passenger. It is a neat thing to go, see, do - but I REALLY liked the Foothills Parkway that connects Townsend to 129. Beautiful views of valleys on both sides. It's like flying in a plane and the air is filled with the sent of pine! I'd guess that is my favorite road to drive.

well not a crash test but my wreck on the fourth of july. //www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/076617.html. they figure the guy hit me doing about 40-50.i think it did pretty good on holding up from stuff coming up into the inside. however im still having back problems do to i got wraped around the center consel. still in physical therapy for it to. my dad says there is a body imprint in the consel from me hitting it so hard. but as for the outside of it, i would have to say it stood up to it really well even though the car is totaled

Antuzzi's problem is he'd blow the motor before reaching the wall and it would gently bump into it. =P
