Good things do come to an end...

Friends,
I must tell you all that the mod world for my focus has come to an end for the time being. I was driving 77 North the other night when I hit something in the road causing my car to do a 360 into the cement wall on the highway. I believe I hit the wall going 55 but I hit it backwards lol. Anyways, I was pretty angry at first but there is nothing I can do about it. The whole entire back end is destroyed so I hope it does not get totaled. The thing that made me laugh is that my underbody neons were still lit and the one in the back was hanging by the wire; haha so I guess Street Glow makes a quality product. Feel free to laugh poke fun or feel sorry for me haha. Thanks for listening!
-Nick

If i were you i would hope they would total it...hitting a wall that hard going that fast has got to seriesly mess up the rear end! at that speed I dont know if it would be repairable lol I know i got hit head on in my 05 that at the time was only 7 months old and did 9,000 worth of damage. THe kicker though was the fact i was sitting still and he was only going 30 mph! Did you have full coverage on it?

Do yourself a favor and talk your mechanic into toaling it for you, an accident like that it will never drive the same... unless you are exaggerating.

Glad you're ok.
