Tonight my car has seen its first major problem

the car spun out on a very slick side street and hit a big curb.. and i snapped the tire rod or did worse damage to my front right-side tire... so now my z is out of use for a while

sorry to waste space but i had to get it out

I feel for ya man . A couple of years ago I slid of the road into a ditch and done quite a bit of damage (around $2400) and I didn't get it back for a few weeks. but now she's good as new so "don't worry be happy"

ONe night one my way home from work I saw a car in the middle of an intersection it looked like my wifes 93 Cavi, so I stopped. Sure as shit, the god damned balljoint on the pass. side gave out snaping the rod end and driving the entire wheel assembly up into the fender as she went around the corner. So what did I do.....I took her home and beat the living shit out of her for ruining a perfectly good car! Just kidding. I used it as an axcuse to park it in the garage for 3 months while I swapped the 2.2 for a 3.1 from a TGP. She nearly shit her pants next time she drove it.

As it came about a turn had a sign down and i didnt know it was really bad turned the wheel but kept going straight, hit a gaurd rail and a car sitting in the middle of the road, left by some dumb bitch. Turned out i totald my car, about 4 grand was the estamit. But fixed it all for $250

when i got rear-ended i had to get a new trunk lid, right fender, and bumper. wrecks suck. just when you have your heart set on the next mod, you have to put all your cash into fixing the damn thing.

Hey guys if there is anyone in the northern wisconsin area, and you wreck your j-body. I will do the body work for NO labor costs so you can have some leftover insurance money for mods.

Why would I do this??

For the cause brother.

Last friday i was driving home from my gf's house. just 11 miles away from mine. i was going down the highway and was very tired. i was goin 85 to get home and get to bed. next thing i know im waking up to the sound of my tires runnin the grooves on the side of the highway. by that time my rear wheels were in the gravel and the car begin to skid. i stomped the brake and cut the wheel to the right and got the car to spin. after skidding through the middle of the ditch up and down the sides between the divided road i was able to come to a stop. after working the wheel like nuts to keep it under control. no major damage. a small hole in the muffler and and hell of a lotta grass all over it. i was able to kick the dirt out from around it and get out, even though it was rainging and slick. after talkin with the six cops that were there i was able to go home and go to bed. what a night. damn!
