  • You're posting so that's a good sign. Sorry to see your buggy on it's side, totaled or just "tweaked" ?

  • You couldn't pay me to drive one of those shit boxes. My neighbor was in an accident in one, similar driving conditions, and ended up paralyzed from the neck down. May as well have been a death sentence. She had a husband and 3 young kids that couldn't understand why she wouldn't play with them anymore.

    Just be glad you're still whole, and get something less famous for single vehicle accidents next time.

    Would have had the same fate if I was in a jeep on how it happened. Same thing happened to a 1 ton pickup up the highway from me.

    Pretty much totaled. Engine also filled with oil and sounds like a busted piston rod.

  • Im fine. Was just a tad sore but I did not bounce around. I stayed center in my chinese bucket seat. LOL. I dangelled for a few and was lucky to be able to undo my seat belt and not have to fiddle with getting my knife out. Glad it did since the engine was still running. Sadly I couldnt turn the engine off and it locked up with the cylinders full of oil.

    Blew it all out yesterday and it sounds like a rod snapped so less money to make off her now. I put a good amount of time and money into that engine. Only takes a few seconds to lose it.


    That shit box has gotten me through life the past 13 years and my older brother, so a total of 19 years. Ive made more friends by just owning it than by doing any thing else and a lot of them would treat me like family if I really called for their help.

  • The whole interstate was ice. Rearend just finally gave out and I slid sideways. Both tires hit the dirt and over I went.
