Wrecked?

Post your pics of the cars/trucks you've wrecked! Tell a story of the ones you have wrecked...and have been so lucky to of walked away from!


Before/After: 2003 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab. I walked away with only a very small (less then .5 inch long) scrape from safety glass behind my ear. I hit icy/snow traveling about 50 when it started to fishtail. I spun around after fishtailing, and rolled onto the drivers side...then went cab/roof first into cliffs on the side of the road.

Re: Wrecked?

No pics of my F150 I killed, wish I had a camera for that night.

I had a 1986 F150 that I decided to mate with a rather large white oak tree in NH. I had just put all kins f money into it, news wheels, tires, brakes, exhaust, and blamo! I was going about 45-50 mph during a snow storm when I came around a corner to see a Dodge Caravan in my lane heading towards me. What made it worse was that it was a blind downhill right hand corner that was off camber. I put the brakes on and the fronts locked...I continued towards the van with no signs of stopping, actually increasing speed as I "attempted" to slow down. I had to make a choice of either hitting the van head on or letting off the brakes and turning away to avoid it. Well I decided to let off the brakes and turn away. I avoided the van with the lady looking at me like this as I whizzed by her front end at 50mph. When I tried to turn back into my lane the truck continued straight off the road towards a 36"DBH(diameter at breast height) White Oak. I knew there was no saving it now and SLAM, I stopped. The truck was totalled. There's ao much more to what happened but It'll take a lot of space to type it. Before the cops, firetrucks, tow trucks, ambulances, and power company showed up three vehicles were totalled. If you all want the whole story just ask, but I must warn you it's long.

Re: Wrecked?

I need to scan some polaroids I have of my ol' Nissan Sentra (college car) and my brother's F150, which were both totaled in the same "accident," circa 1984. We played "chicken" and tied. Would you score that 1-1, or 0-0?

haha that sucks but atleast you didn't lose.




to all of you: "you can buff that out, that's a factory defect, thats suppose to be like that, you can buff that out" - Homer after hitting the Queen of England's carraige.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

In the sense that it confirms what you've been suspecting all along, I know.

Peter: Remember that time I hit that deer....

Deer: we should really exchange information

Peter: you could probably buff that out

Deer: I'd really be more comfortable just having your information

And then there's this asshole...

I never got up enough nerve to ask my dad how it all went (he'd bought both vehicles and was paying the insurance).

Re: Wrecked?

It's not too strange. I went to high school with a couple of guys who got into a little game of chicken, and they both refused to lose. Of course, in the end, they both "lost". Scratch one Camaro, and a nice Toyota 4x4.

Of course the being brothers part is a little strange, but I can see that too. I have a favorite tale of mine to tell that involves my truck, a 78 F150 4x4, my brother in a 76 LTD 4 door, and what could have been the death of about 15 people. It's now a great chuckle when we get together, and the best part is, no one got hurt.
