  • :( Crashed my Lil Baby...

    Well the first day of snow and I've had an accident! No one hurt, infact no one around, just me!!!

    Going down a hill, started braking, wheels locked, started sliding towards a banking...

    Car ended up going sideways into a concrete boulder!!!

    Looked to be just damage to the skit, but having just recieved a call from Vauxhall its going to cost about £5k to fix!!!

                  Suck ***** man! I'm just hoping the insurance company doesnt hold it up!

                  Think the worse thing about it is there was nothing I could have done to prevent it from happening! The car just wouldnt stop sliding!!!

                    Yeah, it's such a horrid feeling when the car starts sliding, ..almost as if in slow motion, you just wait for that dreaded crunch. Don't see any reason for the insurance holding it up Bud, ..it happened because of the bad road conditions caused by the snow, ..nothing to sort out regarding who was at fault etc, ..if any other cars had been involved. Fingers X'd for you

                          Aw, I feel for you, Bud. I had to drive a 1.2 Corsa from the VX Dealer's, when my VXR was in having it's recall work done. It's years since I've driven anything with such a small engine and not even a swift tailwind made it go any faster!
