Default Anyone know this car?

I thought Brett at first, but not so sure?
Reports are minor injuries and minor burns.
Happened at 7:50 am in Baulkham hills area.
Speeding in a 50 zone, hit a parked car and a tree (is the Police report)

Well I bet that will make the papers! Don't like to see this stuff happen on our streets. Pretty sure that's not Bretts, Boxy. Wrong wheels colour roll bar hoop etc.

Only a few blocks away from me.

Never seen the car before.

Definently not me, If I'm the Brett you thinking of....
Sidepipe covers are a bit similar but that all.
Not good either way.

Cheers

Youch! Hope there was no passenger...
Never a good sight after the labour of love that goes into building it.

I just read the article on the daily telegraph and it says it was his fathers car. That's going to be a tough phone call!

Lucky the fire didn't take hold - the tree doesn't appear to have been hot. In fact, it doesn't look like the tree even flinched with the impact...

There was another written off Cobra outside a Melbourne Cobra manufacturer the other day, on a flat-bed. It was light-blue and I think it had slicks on it. I have a pic but I would choose not to post it.

Anyone know about that one?

Wise. Can't imagine I would be too happy if photos of my smashed up car were posted on a forum.
