I've since decided I have 0 interest in trying to drift.
    I can only imagine a hot pizza flying out the girls hands and all over your Vs interior. Hopefully this didn't happen.

    And I agree if you need a winch or a tow truck that's more than just a close call. I'm glad your V came out undamaged tho.

    No pizza or anything.

    Ok fine. Got my car last day of June last year. 4th of July at about 1am had to move it so some people could leave. Feeling all patriotic and such I wanted to lay some rubber before I pet her away (MURRICA). So I got a little in front of the neighbors house. Then I decided I'd lite em up goin around the corner too (I live on the corner). Longer story shorter I came around sideways and steered out of it no shit about an inch from the mailbox. My roommate (who wasn't drinking) thought I hit it. That was my first and the least of 3 embarrassing moments I had in this car. The drifting pizza incident being #2

    That interchange (405 /101) was voted worst in the state if not country.

    Downtown is nuts, and tough luck if you miss your exit.

    When I used to live in Carlsbad and my buddy lived in Irvine I would drive up there... No joke people would just cut off 5 lanes of traffic to make it to the 405 change... I almost got put in a wall buy one guy doing that... Scared the shit out of me

    Ive heard LA has some crazy interchanges, i remember a car magazine that listed the top 10 most dangerous interchanges/bottlenecks in the country and H-town had three on the list and I think LA had Even more.

    Haha... Now that's a close call.

    And a lil alcohol may or may not have been involved in my lil scare... But it was 11:30 and I really needed to get to the store before midnight.
