I am such a f**king idiot!

Post  adi on Tue May 10, 2011 6:18 pm

A few hours ago I did something very stupid. Was driving onto my front garden (as thats where I park now since my car got broken into), and my foot slipped on the clutch. I ploughed straight through a concrete post and halfway into next door's garden. You can see my indicator lived although it was pointing sideways and the offending post I destroyed in the background.



A bit of hammer time on this mangled metal...



The bumpers a bit deformed, but it'l do Laughing

I know it could have been worse, but its still a bit gutting, especially as over the past 2 weeks I've scraped my passenger side arch trims quite badly, TWICE! Your right, if it was a petrol it would have stalled on hitting that post, instead it went straight through, and might I add that this was on tickover!! If it was my old GL I'd have literally cried like a little girl though. I'm not too bothered about this one cuz the shell is crap anyway Laughing

You will have to move your seat forward so that you can reach the pedals properly and perhaps fit some of those extended mirrors like they use when towing caravans. This way you will be able to see walls and fences before they jump out at you and scrape the side of your car. Smile
