I know that road well it's not far from where I lived. Me and a mate used to drive it pretty fast at night (so you could see oncoming headlights and slow down. Not much room for error there. Great pub at the top where the old and new roads meet. Norton Summit always was (and still is) where I'd like to have a property. Except during bushfire season!
Where the old and new meet.. The crash happened not 30 seconds heading down old Norton summit road. Not even at a sharp corner or anything, still can't remember exactly what happened as it happened so quickly.
Yeah such a nice end of town though.

It was the straight away before the road really does a massive drop 90 degree turn to the left (when heading down)

Very sorry to see such a lovely example of a Calibra come to an end like this, especially after all the great work you put in to it.  :'(

About the only positive note is that you must have gone almost as far with that project as you could - a bit like building a model railway, building it is always more satisfying than playing trains on it once it's finished.  Now you can start over and do it even better!

Cheers bro I appreciate it. I've gotta thank the guy upstairs for sure.

Cheers buddy, oh yes it definitely could have. The cali looked after me so well.

Thanks for the kind words man and you are fully correct.
I still am as annoyed as when I first stepped out and saw the damage and thought what a shame. But like you say I really had done just about everything I could, I had learnt alot with that car.
Atleast this time I can make cali 2.0 even better! XD
