    Starting this thread for pics of cars that are either out of shape or about to get that way, including cars so smoked in that the driver cannot see what is in front of him. Let's see what else is out there.

    Love how this guy didn't even THINK about lifting, just looking around the side....

    Short wheel base and wheelies can get out of shape quickly....

    Blowers are hard enough to see around when you are sitting still....

    Marc, as the son of an altered driver from that same era, to me that is one of THE most iconic “out of shape” pics in the sport’s history.
    Great thread, but need to distinguish if we’re posting out of shape pics only, or including actual crash shots as well. All good either way.

    Not really looking for crash shots, but pretty much any "in the moment" shots where it could go either way and is just a good looking shutter capture. Just added the Dixon shot from last year because it is such a good capture of a moment in time. Hopefully, most of these guys saved it. The Lesenko sequence is awesome.

    CHRR Sunday, the Bad News AA/FA driver Kurt Cruise illustrated the meaning of "out of shape." It did eventually hit the wall around 1,000 feet, but he walked away.
