mine was in Savannah, some nice dumb old lady misjudged and ran right into the rear bumper.

new bumper and paint: $511

problem: no one can match the Cool Silver Metallic paint yet. it took three weeks before they finally got it right. the whole time, i got to drive a dadgum 4cylinder mailbu. i hated life

I finally got the car back on a tuesday evening, right at 6PM. i drove back to downtown atlanta, then to buckhead for dinner at 7:15. When I left the restaurant at 9:15 what did i discover? yep, someone had hit the car. right on the corner of the freshly painted bumper.

my luck sucks, don't it?

Well this just happened like about 2 hours ago.

I was driving through a canyon road kinda going fast with a friend of mine behind me. We hit a straight away and start accelerating to about 50-55 when a deer is in the middle my lane. I couldnt slam on my brakes cuz my friend was on my *** and didnt want to get rear ended so i swirved to the left and the deer thinks the same and before i could react anymore i slam into the deer and send it flying. Pulled over and my hood pushed up, the upper part of my bumper is broken, my radiator is leaking and smoking, and my frame is pushed in just a little bit. I havnt taken pictures yet but the damage could of been a lot worse. Im just hella mad rite now and sad cant do anything but to fix it i guess.

Drives: your mom crazy with my striking good looks

on the phone with a bill collector. stopped at gas station. got out of car. went into gas station. come out of gas station. look over to the right of the lot and think "that looks alot like my car." thought that was kind of strange since there are not too many ralliarts in my area. look to the left where my car had been parked and realized that it WAS my car. I had left the e-brake down and car in gear because I was on the phone. need a new bumper and left headlight and probably bent the left quarter panel a little. Thats all ok though, it was heading towards a VERY busy highway when it hit the cement pole I found it resting against. I will never do that again

How/why was it legally your fault? (the judge's decision notwithstanding) It seems odd that a side collision would be the fault of the driver that got hit on the side. Unless you were doing something like running a red light or making a turn from a wrong lane that is, but I'd assume the judge wouldn't have awarded you the money in a case like that.

^^ well the cop who swiped the car was in an unregistred or "not-for-use-car" this means it was a patrol car not still registered at the dmv as a police car so, the car had no papers and therefore the cop had no papers, he didnt signed for it at the station, and the cop was off duty at personal doings -maybe a mistress i dont know-(@1am) so the judge awarded me the case on negligence from the police dept. part...
legally my fault because i made a pass from the left side in a one track rad <--- dont know if i expressed that correctly... he hit me at the passenger side back door but directly my fault because i made an 'illegal' pass.. dont know if you get it..

I think I understand. Basically, you did something you shouldn't have but not so bad that the cop's negligance didn't outweigh what you did. Now it makes sense

RX-7 wreck

July 17th 1997. I was a senior in high school and was on my way to Winter Formal or some sort of dance. Boss loans me his 1993 RX-7 with about $6K worth of HKS stuff installed. Friend rolls up on me with Caddie NorthStar. He guns it and my date says, "take him out" well we take him out all right, then we catch a little dip in the road. Next thing I know we are doing 50mph into street pole. Nobody was hurt, but a lesson was learned. I need AWD..j/k I don't race anymore.

I have no major damage just little tings and dents. I was driving in downtown Chicago late on a week night going home from my friend's apartment. All the sudden I hear a loud noise from the roof. I got kind of scared, thought maybe a gang member or something was trying to do something so I just continued driving while looking around but didnt see anything. I parked the car in the garage and notice there is a dent on my roof with some chipped paint. I guess some a$$hole threw a rock at my car for no apparent reason. Also I have a couple dings and dents from pieces of **** hitting my car with their doors in the parking lots. Now I park miles away from everybody whenever possible. Other than that, some chipped paint from pebbles during normal highway driving but everybody gets that. I read in MotorTrend about some plastic wax kind of thing you can get for your car that prevents that kind of thing but I was too lazy to get it. Oh well.

Drives: 04 Lancer Ralliart

late one friday night after work i was hanging out with some friends at another friend's house, who lives down a curvy road and it had been raining that night. when we were all leaving i took off really fast and when i hit the second lefthand curve i started to fishtail and the proeeded to slide through the next righthand curve, through some bushes, and landed upside down with the backend laying against some trees. i was hanging upside b/c i still had my seatbelt on. then i just crawled out of the car and looked at my car as it layed upside down against a tree. i wasn't hurt at all and the car was totaled. i bought an 04 srt4 two weeks later. i still miss my ralliart though.
