not to be mean, but it doesnt surprise me..

immaturity probably played a huge role in it. 17years old.. 230hp 0-60 in 5.8seconds..

Are the Gotti boys those spike headed little wanna' be mafia kids I've seen? What is up with that whole thing? Jersey Wiggers.... I'd rather see emo kids using SRT-4's to cut themselves.

HP demands a certain level of respect and experience. My son will get a Dodge Aries K car when he's 16...if he's lucky.

Yeah that's tough to take around the holidays. He should've been wearing his seatbelt though. Maybe it could have helped.

Yeah we all know how it can be to give a younger, immature person a car like this, but it doesn't take away from the fact that this was someone's kid, best friend, brother, and they all loved him.

This is terribly sad, and yes it happens all the time to people in different cars and we never post it up. Whether it's from a poor judgement or an accident, lives should never be taken. It is not my job to assume or guess, but I hope he is heading in the right direction in his after life. Gotta say a prayer for his family, no one deserves a new year like this.

This is getting rediculious(sp) I have driven many fast cars and I am smart eneough to know my limitations the kid clearly was little @$$hole who thought beacuse he can play gt4 he is the best driver in the world. What upsets me most is that another srt-4 was destroyed I have been saving since I was 14 for an srt-4 and I am sick and tired of the rich kids getting them. I was going to go today looking at them there is a blue 05 at right around here and I got a call this morining the guy told me it was sold some guy bought it for his son for christmas well atleast I will have wheels for the R/T and a drivetrain for the GLH shell I have.

Rant Over sorry if I come off mean in this but as you can tell I am in a bad mood today.

I am thinking of pushing for a much tougher test to get a drivers license. Anyone with 30 free minutes can get one which leads to things like this.
I say race schools take over drivers ed :) Then these kids whould know what cars can and cannot do.

That kid looks...wow haha

I know we are just kidding, but am I the only one that thinks joking about the fact that this kid apparently looked like a "gotti" is totally insensitive???

Last time I checked in the post pics of yourself thread, none of us on here are models. Here's an idea, when the next one of us goes up in flames and dies we will make fun of your fat ass and the fact that you had blemishes at 30.

Sound a little harsh?? yeah I thought so too. Seriously people, the kid lost his life....this serves no purpose. I hope you guys never realize the terror of running up on a accident scene with a car that looks like that, and feeling the immidiate pain....I never want to go through it again.

^yeap, i've seen death... i've dealt with it

I take it very, very lightly. Always have, always will. People live and die, it happens. It's a horrible fact of life. None of us knew this kid, so it's not personal to us. Hence why most of us are just joking around about the Gotti kids.

*shrugs* I'll apologize if you get offeneded, but this is just my views on death.
