    Rally crash compilation dedicated to the Crazy Finns harvesting the Finnish forests with their rally cars. Everything from scary to hilarious crashing this video shows that there is so many ways of getting it wrong on those bendy gravel roads.

    The video is compiled from various sources and includes crashes from the 1990s as well as 2000 onwards.

    Lots of what look like first gen Honda Civics biting the dust here.:( They look like the most common car besides what I assume is some kind of Datsun.

    Wow! I didn't know Sarah Palin was a rally fan!

    Some pretty spectacular pirouettes in there. The one at 1:50 is fantastic.

    And the laughter/applause are unreal... is Finland the capital of Schadenfreude?

    And the nimrods running up with their camera phones to get pics of the driver/navigator hanging upside down....

    And it always amazes me how many people stand in the "kill zone" on rally courses... lots of folks with death wishes out there, I guess.
