For you to start shaking or for you to pull over and say holy dude did that just happen? Barely miss that semi...go into a spin unintentionally but recovered, someone pull out in front of you and you had to go into abs to save it,looking in your rearview mirror at that red light...which is what I always do anyway and see that 70+old lady approaching at a 35 mph clip and it doesnt look like she's slowing down or even paying attention?

Well being pushed through and intersection, around a corner, and 150 feet down a highway on ramp by a Kenworth was pretty exciting. So was "chasing" the sob 15 miles while on the phone with the police dispatcher. But, the picture is the result hitting a concrete bridge abutment at about 70mph. Got rear ended and turned when I checked up for the car in front of me. That one rung my bell a bit lol.[IMG]http://[/IMG]

pi have had plenty of them close calls. i hate the feeling of having them! i remember one time i was on my way to work and this idiot must have been texting, swerved into my lane, and my cat like reflexes kicked in, slammed my brakes and went off the road, lucky there were no cars in that lane. I had to stop for a second and thank God nothing happened. i almost sh!t my pants

I don't have close calls my luck don't allow it. I hit a semi head on at 55 mph in a pontiac grad am, I been in a 35 mph roll over in a ranger. A F-150 turned aross my lane and I hit t-boned him in the side a 25mph. I side swiped a parked chevy blazer in my old integra at 45 mph after I sworved to miss a car turning infront of me so I didn't hit them head on. I've been rear ended twice. But nothing in the focus yet, and i'm still alive. lol

Well wasn't really anything wrong with my car, because I left it in neutral and let him push me till I had room to pull off the road. He kept going. All I had was a skuffed up rear bumper cover. He later said he never saw me till I pulled off the to the side of the road. Told the cops " I wondered where that car came from". lol As for the pic well that's technically a wreck not a close call, but hey I hit a bridge and didn't die! Ford builds em right!
