View Full Version : just wrecked the car

ok well not completely but i came really close. im really hoping that this is my "B5 curse wreck" and there will be no others. i was heading home from work tonight down a really tight canyon and i was coming around a blind corner, not completely paying attention like i probably should have been, and "OH SHIT!" three huge rocks lined up across my lane and cars coming the other direction so i couldn't swerve.. usually there are small rocks on the road that i just kinda "thread the needle"(so to speak) with them, but these things were too big. i missed two but couldn't avoid the other one and BAM!!! thud thud thud.. bent rim, and luckily only bent rim.. luckily there my buddy rocky has an extra rim i can buy for cheap [:)]

the worst part was that two other people had hit the rocks before me but none of them did anything to prevent others from hitting them. so i grabbed my flashlight and ran up the road and threw them off to the side while they just sat there and looked stupid.. problem might have been averted if there weren't so many stupid people in the world

here's the visual aids


first time on the spare in 75k
needs a little air i think

It could have been your oil pan if it wasn't your wheel, just look at it that way!

ya i saw the size of them i and knew they wouldn't fit under the car so i slammed the breaks and made sure that the one i did hit was under the tire..

yeah, i am completely baffled on how i hit this boulder with the inner part of my front rim and nothing else got damaged [confused]

i jacked it up and looked everywhere underneath the car and can't find anything out of place

everything was just such a blurr i can hardly remember it now

That Damn B5 curse... I've already experienced mine, and trust me, it was about $2200 worse than that. Consider yourself lucky thats all that happened, an I'm glad everyone is OK. Hopefully one of those other retards that just stood there after their cars hit it has worse damage than you do! Bastards.

Great save. You might be needing a new wheel bearing soon but that is still minimal compared to what could have happened.

Nice job helping out. Someone has to save the lemmings.
