did you crash it driving like a fuckin twat? then you deserve to be in the 'bashing zone'.

sorry to hear waylon, i know the feeling all too well. selling a project car that was 4 years in the making and countless thousands of dollars invested left me feeling empty inside for months on end. it also made me re-think this whole car thing. putting so much time, energy and money into such a trivial thing really is a bit of a waste of time. specially when it can all dissapear in the blink of an eye.

dang dude...sorry to hear....I remember when my truck was the only thing it could cheer me up (during/after a pretty bad break-up). Keep one bit of it and move on to the next ride...try to keep something you can incorporate...shift knob or something....

no mike i disapointed you this time, i was not driving like a fucking twat, i was going 60 around a 30degree bend and rear end kicked out, sucked me into a wall. no drugs, alcohol, or street racing was apart of this so it is fully covered by icbc

well it's good that you're fully covered....losing the ass end on a FWD is one of the scariest things I've ever experienced any plans as to what you're doing w/ the $$$?

well thats different then. that sucks alot. and as geoff said, investing so much time and money and work into something that can be sold or written off in a heartbeat really does make you rethink the whole situation.

good luck with ICBC. hope it turns out well.

I once saw someone w/ LOCKING lugnuts on EVERY SINGLE LUG...I mean one per wheel...understandable...FOUR/FIVE (can't remember what pattern it was) per wheel is a waste of money. if someone has the tools to take'em off, he'll be able to bust all of them off...if not, then you're safe with one per wheel...looked pretty goofy
