Default The wonders of plastic

well let'* just start this out with what i said when this happened: OH, ****!!!!

well anyway, heading to a friends house, they have a nice wide driveway (like 2 lane road wide) lined with trees, so as i decided that i didn’t want to slow down as much as i should have... anyway, i am drifting in, and then i realize, here is this tree, that i am heading right for , and then the tree decides to say hello to my bumper... i park, get out and look at it, nothing broken but the paint does not look too good . i go in and tell my friend i gotta go and then i come straight home to see what i can do for my car. i get home and get out the stuff to wash up the area (from about 6 inches in on the driver side of the bumper all the way back to the wheel well) and to my surprise after i wash the area, you can't even tell god i love these plastic body panels, not even a dent

Lucky Bastard ( From Tamara and I ).. most people who encounter trees don't come out of it so lucky... be careful... pretend to be a slow granny ( at least the car comes back in 1 piece ) and wait till you practice enough in an open parkin lot and so on to handle the car better before trying it again... you got off lucky.. and so has a few of us at times.. count your blessin and polish her up for gettin you off this time
