Default Wreaked

My windows fogged up when I was driving on the parking lot of my work so i did not see the isladn to the right i moved onver to slow down and get out of the way and BOOM i hit a curb on an island.

I popped 2 tires and have to get 1 maby2 new rims and I have to see what happened to my oil pan It might be cracked. hopefully there are no other problems

Ouch.
I remember doing something similar with my old Pontiac Tempest. I drove it for about 2 wks after repairing the tires, then the steering idler arm broken off with a piece of the frame.

So make sure your suspension and steering parts connection points are sound.

Yep... me too... going through a corner in beginning of a snow storm a few years back.. stepped on the gas to put the car into a drift in turn.. it went.. then it caught traction mid way through and I didnt have enough time to react, so I caught traction and understeered onto the curb on passenger side.. . Give it one thing guys... at least there wasn't an audience there to point and laugh at your mis fortune..
