Why not, right? I mean, it'll only cost about $2200 to join. For that price, I'll even throw in a couple of broken headlights, a smashed front bumper, and a gnarled lower radiator support. Not to mention that I'll take all of your freon by puncturing your condensor...free of charge!! How can you resist. But act now, this is a limited time offer.

p.*. watch out for driveways, they can be quite elusive this time of year.

huh? Maybe I am missing the point so please forgive me, but this sounds like as good an idea as a football bat or 4 dollar bill

This isn't really a club that you choose to join, it just kind of happens. If you like, you can think of it as more of a 'support group.'

Can you join if you've "off-roaded" with a minivan?
If so, sign up my Mom, she jumped a divider a while back in her Grand Voyager, "to avoid an accident" . She spragged her left wheel, and bent a camber bolt! I didn't even know you could bend a camber bolt!

Mine was really, I mean really stupid. I was pulling out of a rural driveway and was just kind of zoning. You know how paved/blacktop driveways usually curve a lot before they meet the road? Well, this one didn't. I turned and, ka-THUNK! My instinct was to hit the gas. If it wasn't for this I would have been stuck in that ditch. Instead I got out (and left two 4-foot burn outs!) I drove a ways, then came back to pick up any pieces that were left behind. The guys in the shop (it happened at a used car dealership) were talking to me and said that someone did the same thing on the other side of the driveway just a few weeks ago. Kinda makes me wonder...is that how they get the cars they sell?? Wow. So anyway, to make a long story short, I was stupid.
