DAMN IT TO HELL! Worth reading>>>

I just got run off the F***ING road. angry I was coming back from running an errand for my law office, and doing like 70 on this straight as an arrow, back woods, 2 lane highway (visibility is awesome)...keeping up with traffic and everything, when someone coming in the opposite direction decides to pass the car in front of him...only thing is that he didn't see me, and when he pulled out, he cut right back in to avoid hitting me, and I started swerving. eek eek eek I hit the brakes, and the clutch so I didn't destroy the engine thumbsup, but lost control, and ended up pulling a 360, while skidding across the other lane of traffic and into a ditch. I didn't get hurt, and didn't collide with anyone (I'm thinking miracle of GOD eek smile ) ...BUT... I get out to check for damage...and its terrible. cry...the car is fine, but yesterday I had the Razzi 03 front lip, Buddy Club 2 front splitter, and APR Canards put on, and flying into the ditch at the angle I did, broke my new lip all to hell, destroyed the front splitter, and snapped one of the canards right off the mounting hardware cry cry...no scratches, no borken glass, nothing to the rims or the stock body,, and I'm cool, but this asshole cost me right in the ballpark of $1,000 in aftermarket stuff, and didn't even stop to see if I was alright angry angry...I ended up getting towed out, and drove back to the office, where I'm typing this now, but just...just...DAMN IT TO HELL!!! angry

Find out who it was, charge him with fleeing the scene of an accident.


To have played and laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

ok...maybe I was wrong...my boss goes out, looks at my car, and comes in to my office asking what happened to my front end...I was like WTF??...we go out there, and what I didn't notice before was that I actually did lose a lot of paint under the bumper, and around the middle opening that leads to the radiator...I think rather than paying my $500 deductible, I'm gonna break down and buy the Extremor front end that I've been looking at since I bought the car...what do you guys think? Its the only way I can see making something good out of something bad...and its important to be positive right?

I lost control cause I was doing 70, and had to cut it Really HARD to avoid being hit head on doing 70 MPH dude...when I cut back to try to avoid flipping I spun around, and ended up in the ditch...I'm so glad the celica handles the way it does thumbsup

at least you didn't have major body damage or mess up your rims - that would have been some crazy cash you would've paid. Main thing is you're ok, just think if someone from the opposite lane broadsided you...

^^^^ yeah I might have to look into that, but I want a new bumper first...I'm still a little rattled, cause its like Sultan said...what if someone had broadsided me in the opposite lane at 70 mph...it scares me to think about

Sorry to hear about your incident. At least you were able to walk away and nobody was injuried. But like you said maybe you make some good out of this bad situation and get the new front you wanted. Keep us posted.
