Pardon my french, but I'm feeling rather mortified just now......

...censor mode on...

...censor mode off...

I just ploughed into armco at 50mph having come off a roundabout, put the power down, and hit a patch of diesel.

I 720'd, completely totalling the off side rear and front wings from ricocheting off the barriers twice and knocked the whole of the bonnet out of alignment.

:-(

I want to cry.......

Yeah, I'm okay thanks, it's only cosmetic I think/hope.

I blame Jennie for recommending me different tyres to what I'm used to :)

Just got to get it sorted before trax......

Glad to hear you're OK.

Yeah but it still hurts to see your car mangled don't it.

Suppose you've got a month before TRAX, so fingers crossed, I reckon you'll make it.

Keep us all posted.

sorry man....

I know how you feel.

I will be getting mine back on monday - 10 weeks after crashing it!

Sorry to tell you this but yours aint going to be done for TRAX.

I have a plus side to mine though... The paint will be bloody good - they have had it an extra week as they balsed up the paint and have had to re-do everything!

Looking forward to monday for me...

(at least the pizza marks will finally come off!)

Correct mate, it was talked about and I suggested it to Si one day one the phone

If we have enough people willing to show thier smashes then I do not see any reason why we could not have a Smash Gallery

I would be willing to put mine in

Been thinking about it a bit...

We'd need pictures, a brief 'incident' description, cost of repair, damage to other vehicles/property and anything else along those lines.

Would probably make a joke of it, but may help people realise it's just a car, and that would in turn help them get over it.
I know I'd be gutted for a while if I pranged mine :rolleyes:

Gutted was an understatement when I was crashed into but everything happens for a reason and it all comes good in the end

I just wish I had a pic to show you all how the Beeza looks now

Just wait till Trax and you will see what I mean

Yeah, I'm definitely still coming to trax even if the car isn't up for showing herself off by then....

Went round a few bodyshops today and they estimate the damage to be £1500-£2000. Ouch.....

At least she still drives perfectly though.....

Piccies available shortly for a gallery.... thanks all for your kind words :)
