Got my car back

Late June of this year I had a canyon carving accident that set me back a couple G's. It was very scary and I regret every part of it. My car was out of commission up until yesterday, 8/9/04.
Just a hand full of people knew about it.
When I did get my car back it was like I fell in love with the 2zz-ge all over again.
There is nothing like it.
Drive safe out there guys.
All it takes is a simple little mistake which would cause your car and more importantly, your life to be in jeopardy.

It was a canyon carve and his car got wrecked... I think that you can fill in the blanks. tongue

Glad it's back to normal... thankful that it was just the car that was hurt, too.
