1000 Old Car Wreck Pictures from the Boston Public Library

 

Okay fine, maybe it’s only 984 pictures, but sometimes in life you need to massage numbers up or down to suit your needs. This is my time to do so. Regardless, 984 pictures is still a lot of old car wreck pictures to thumb through, so you will want to grab a nice iced mocha latte or something for this little morbid afternoon journey.  I’ve gone through quite a few of these and I didn’t see any grotesque stuff (read: blood, guts, etc), but look at your own risk just in case I overlooked it.

This is the link to the 984 car accident picture slide show. (Best way to view them)

The thing that amazes me the most about them, is the picture quality.  The vast majority of these images are from between 1925 and 1955, and the clarity of the images is far better than anything that I could do right now.  Then again, I am photographically illiterate.  Anywho, enjoy the nearly one thousand pictures of old car wrecks, accidents, or whatever you prefer to call them.

This is if you don’t like slide shows and would rather click individual car accident pictures.

Watching A Lamborghini Crash Is Mostly Just Sad.

Watching a car crash is like, well, watching a car crash. You see the impending doom, time slows down and you start moaning like a zombie. Then the inevitable happens, the car collides with something and your zombie-esque moan turns into a breathy lung exhausting “aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh”.

This video is one of those moments.  You know what’s about to happen from the first rev of the engine. One minute later, the Lamborghini becomes the swirly meat in a giant car sandwich. The only word that comes to mind in this instance is a sarcastic “unprofessional“.  Sorry for your loss of nice bodywork Lambo.

Nissan 350Z Highway Wreck

It isn’t often that a real life car wreck between two pretty nice cars gets caught on camera and posted for the world to see. Unfortunately for these Nissan 350Z drivers, it did. I recommend that BEFORE you watch the video, you mute your volume. Then watch it over again with the volume up. I did this and it gave me two totally different views on what exactly happened here. Whatever the case may be, it looks like they both need quite a bit of work before they are shiny again.

Want to see the aftermath?  You can see the Black 350Z Here and the Silver 350Z Here and Here. Not pretty, that’s for sure. Click them while you still can!

Gonna Be Snowy In New England This Week – Drive Safe!

Snow can be a lot of fun when you are bouncing the car off the rev limiter in a big empty parking lot.  However,  it becomes far less fun when you are sliding out of control in slow motion (That really does happen).  This picture was taken by a good friend of mine this morning.  It’s going to be slick out there over the next few days > Stay Safe!
