We all make mistakes. Worst case senario, your car is claimed totaled, you strip everything and start over.

Take this one step at a time, trying to swallow it all at once could make you choke.

ok maybe i overreacted...

we had some trouble getting the car on the 2 wheel trailer...

keep in mind my dad drove an hour to come pick me up, what a nice guy...

we towed it back to mt lake and got it on the hoist...

the a-frame is bent, everything else looks ok...

going to the yard tomorrow to get a new one...

the front rim has about a 2in peice chipped off of the rim, still holds air, but doenst look the best...off to ebay...

the rear tire was totally popped, so prolly 2 new tires...

the roof isnt terrible, and im gonna drop the headliner to see if i can pop it out...its not bad, maybe 1/8" lower than normal...

my dad doesnt understand how the roof could bent for how much other damaage there ISNT...

all in all...coulda been a lot worse...but its not the end of my car by all means... will be up and running tomorrow...

pics on sunday...

and if you talk me into it...i might host the video.....

oh yeah...the passenger door wasnt opening quite right...but i think i fixed that...

im just scared to see it all in the light tomorrow...

my dad does have a bunch of spare cars laying around, and im thinking that its time to just let my car sit for a while, and do some hardcore modding and fixing on it... it really hates me right now

i had a friend hit a curb at 50, straight on, i was in the car, he was trying to tailwhip into a parking lot off the highway, didnt brake nearly enough, he hit it almost straight on. he denies it, claims the brakes went out. but i was in there, i felt him braking, they didnt cut out he just didnt push it hard enough, and if the brakes did cut out why would you still go for it? andway long story short airbags hurt and his car was totalled

I'm sorry to hear about the damage man! i know how that can feel. It'* a really bad feeling. I almost totaled my car thursday night too and got the living sh*t scared out of me. Corvette+him driving wrong way down one way street+no lights at 1 AM+ 80 MPH in a 40=very bad. Luckily he missed me by less than an inch!

that 120 mph impact would have sucked also, assuming you were doing 40.
