Looks like another one bit the dust.

MY BEAUTIFUL BULLITT IS DESTROYED!!!!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My pride and joy is gone. I put my life into my 2001 bullitt #0145 and it is now a useless pile of twisted metal. Ok, i was getting on the 4 lane and it was raining hard. When I got to the top of the ramp, there was water standing and I hydroplaned and started spinning round and round. Finally, it stopped spinning and I was stopped broadside in the right lane, and an eighteen wheeler t-boned me (yeah, it sucked). It pushed my passenger door into me and broke 6 of my ribs, bruised a lung, and shot glass into my arm. After 7 days in the hospital and some minor surgery to remove the glass, here I am. Even though my car is gone, I'm happy to be alive. Everyone said that I should be dead, but that little ford held together enough to keep me from being crushed ( oh yeah, the drivers door opens and closes like nothing happened, and I walked away) Luckily, the wreck spared my complete drivetrain, which was what I had the most work in. mach 1 crate engine bored .10 over with polished cobra crank, manley h-beam rods, wiseco diamond forged pistons, ported heads and intake with blower cams and upgraded valvetrain, 60lbs injectors, vortech supercharged pushin 18 lbs of boost, grannatelli MAF, k&n cold air intake, bbk long tube headers, bbk x-pipe, flows, Viper 6-speed trans (fully built from front to back) steeda tri-ax shifter, centerforce dual friction clutch, custom 1000hp rated carbon fiber/aluminum driveshaft, 8.8 rear with moser posi unit with 4.10 gears and 31 spline axles, adjustable upper and lower control arms, and it also saved the tubular k member. There are several other odd and ends that made it out alive as well. I'm planning on putting my drivetrain in a 99-04 gt or cobra and giving it another try. I would post pics, but my camera was in the car when It got smashed and it fell victim to the crushed glovebox.

That is one lucky guy. Amazing how "minor" his injuries were after getting smacked by a big rig.

But that is testament to the safety built into the current Bullitt generation. The car did what it was supposed to do and saved his life.

Wow....sounds like he is lucky to be alive.

Hope he had additional insurance coverage for his significant mods.

What probably helped was the fact it was raining. When the truck it him, it had less resistance and could slide easier. Unfortunate that the rain caused it, but it also helped save his life.
