Show Your Wreck

i dunno if this is more of a showroom thing, so mods do what u do if need be
so Im just sitting here waiting for my next class, and i got to thinking with so many unfortunate accidents happening, why not make a wreck thread...
post up some pics and a lil insight of what happened (doesnt have to be a foci)

ill start



this was a 96' Buick Regal...i wasnt drunk or anything, simply just going for a ride with my buddy, kind of a narrow rode, it was one of those dark, kinda foggy and drizzling nights, completly blew a stop sign and hit somone head on, i was doing in the 50's not exactly sure....not sure how fast the other person was going either...airbags went off both side, to this day im still surprised, after the hit i just unbuckled and got out of the car, my buddy was scrambling a bit to find his glasses but was fine....the other driver in a 01' Maxima was kind of an older lady and she broke her ankle

Here was my old 07 ST
Before


After





I was hit buy a Dodge ram 2500 4X4 in a snow storm, bent his bumper and cracked one of his headlights.

My new 08


I sure do miss the 2.3 and the rear disks, overall I like the stiffer chassis of and improved steering of the 08.

i belive him! i slid into a curb about four weeks ago now and some how bent the lower control arm, tie rod, curb rashed the hell out of my rim, lost the side skirt cap, up the fender, and set off the side impact air bag. i was only going 10mph at the time because i new the roads were bad out, and some how i still slid and did that much damage to her. i towed the car home, and started fixing her my self. got her up and running again, and then 8 days later my mother backs in to the car on the drivers side door.
