The 1969 Z/28 on the roof Mosteller's Garage in Chattanooga ,Tennessee

 I saw this on facebook earlier.  Irish

The 1969 Z/28 on the roof Mosteller's Garage in Chattanooga ,Tennessee has been a warning for years to the local teens not to street race.
Sadly, a couple young guys were racing a truck, on July 7th 1978, and contact between them at high speed caused the car to flip up and out, and wrap all the way around a telephone pole, still embedded. The roof touches the floor, the hood and trunk lid touch each other.
the story on the 69 Z28
Rivals at Central High went to go race a 1956 Chevy truck that hadn't been beat and the other was this 69 Z/28 , with two boys 16 and 15 years old, the driver lived in Hixson and the passenger lived near the lake off Kings Point Rd
They started at Germantown headed East on South Terrace.
They were followed by a guy in a Road Runner, his story:
As we topped the hill, I backed out of it because of the traffic light ahead. The Camaro was slightly ahead and hit his brakes just as the truck was changing lanes. (the road is said to have a bump in it) The truck clipped the bumper of the Z-28 and it simply went into the air sideways. I estimate they were going around 90-95 mph because I was still doing 80 and slowing down.
The car slid on it's passenger side right into the pole instantly knocking out the power in the area. The sound was like a sonic boom. The truck slid just off the road onto the sidewalk.
The driver was hanging half out of the car and the passenger was bunched up in the floor, they were both removed and taken to East Ridge Hospital. Other than being bloody, they were intact and really did not look that bad.
The headlights were still on and the radio was playing and that made it kind of spooky.
The fire department pried open the trunk and tore into the back seat to see if anyone was in the back seat in spite of us telling them nobody else was in the car. The wrecker tried several times to pull the car off the pole with no luck.
They cut the pole top and bottom.
The driver of the truck was brought up on charges of vehicular homicide. ( Both kids had died instantly)

I mean, why not? It seems to be working really well in cities such as Chicago, New York, Washington D.C., and Baltimore (along with other Communist hives)

 Of course I am being facetious, but here it is from the mouth of a socialst-demonrat mayor as he suggests disarming law abiding peoples who travel to Birmingham for medical treatments, business, or who just happen to live in the crime infested den of violence and mayhem that once was a flourishing city known as "The Pittsburg of the South". Mayor Woodfin does this all the while claiming he supports the 2nd Amendment.

Birmingham Mayor Woodfin call for banning guns in cities to help curb violence. Read the entire piece HERE.

Happy Thanksgiving To One and All....

Happy Thanksgiving to all from Irish and I

I for one, have much to be thankful for. I hope the same for all of our internet friends. Stay safe, watch your six, and keep your powder dry!


Another WTF Moment Of Things Going On...


 Two things that have happened recently:

A close friend of ours told us the other day that another friend is moving home with her

boyfriend. He is young and healthy and was diagnosed with Cardiomyopathy. They

are coming back here so he can be treated in Boston and may need a transplant. I will update

if I get more details.



This story was relayed first hand.

Friend went to drop off an overnight letter to the Fed-Ex hub.

Walked in and noticed a man boxing up some carry on bags and suit clothes.

The counter person said " Can I help you?" to my friend.

Friend looked a first customer and said "Do you mind?"

He said "No, go ahead I have to finish up" 

"My pilot didn't get up this morning."

To which my friend replied jokingly, "Rough night?" as most of us would.

The guy nonchalantly replied back,

"No, he died in his sleep"

Totally taken aback, said friend was extremely apologetic finished business, offered condolences

and left.

Quick Notes and Random Observations...


  Locally , there seems to be a lot more car accidents reported and more talk of

younger and middle age people being diagnosed with cardiomyopathy. 

Stuff is taking longer to procure at work and everyone seems inept.


Must be that damn climate change....... 



What kind of off-kilter stuff are you seeing?
