Default Red is my cursed color....

GD.....well I guess i've figured out that red is not going to be the color of my next toy!! My first red car was my '92 GranPrix SE......totalled....rear ended someone Then the other red car is my '03 GTi in which i've sucessfully crashed TWICE in the last month now The first one was about a month ago.....just got it back from the body shop last week...looked great right??......well last night I decided to show off a little and misjudged my speed around a 35 degree corner....a$$ went one way......over compensated the counter steer.....a$$ went the other way and on to an embankment I went...stoving the passenger side rocker/door in on the bottom!! I thought I was stuck but was able to drive her home!! The filter fell off....and some of the grill inserts....went back w/ the bonnie and picked the stuff up after I got home and wiped my pants out Anyways.....next time I go to buy a different car and I say that it'* going to be red.....remind me NOT TO BUY A RED CAR!!!

Glad to hear you are ok...except the soiled shorts...

BTW.. Red isn't your color....and black always looks dirty.

saturn - wrecked
lesabre - nothing yet

cousins only wreck was in his red cavy

Red is not a lucky color for me/people I know... maybe the lesabre should get a new paint job soon lol black would look hot..

I tend to agree, however I think a government-funded study is required to determine whether or not red cars get into more accidents than blue ones. After I get the grant, who wants to go with me to junk yards around the country and count red cars?
