Well there I was...

Going way to fast on a narrow country road into a double S turn when Mr. Cow decided it was his road. In and out of the three foot ditch arround the sign missed the fence and back onto the road covered in NC mud/clay strewing many parts along the way. Luke remember that nice new Oil Cooler you just installed last week? Might need another along with the rest of the front end body work and something that was puking coolent that is yet to be determined.

I nominate me for Dumb Ass of the the Week! Can I get a Second?

that sucks!

just to be safe, you should probably throw an LS7 in it just in case there was any damage to the engine

That is Ms. Cow to you. Or Mr. Bull. But I'm being picky, I'm sure you weren't
checking the "equipment" as you were taking evasive action. Many people roll their cars doing such a thing. That the V corners better, probably is the reason you kept wheel side down.

I nominate MR. Cow! at least you had reflex to dodge it. It's lucky it's not dinner for the village any time soon!

Good luck!

I don't know how it is where you live, but around here if an accident involves livestock, then the owner of the livestock is liable if it was the cause of the accident. You may want to check into that? :suspect: :rant2: :stirpot:

Thats the law around here. I have a friend who has livestock and he said the rule is that if someone shows up on your door and asked if you have any cows missing you always answer "NO".

Learjet: Try not mistake the V for learjet - Although it's close. Glad you are OK - Maybe widening the tires does help :bouncy:

Hellz ya.....that's been my profile saying forever...drive it, break it, build it better.

Dude be careful on the backroads. My friend (had) a V, and was racing a Bimmer on back road....S curve came up, and he flipped it (totalled) he flew out of the car and was in the hospital for awhile! He's lucky to be alive really. He tried to buy my V off me after that!! :nono:

Yeah that racing stuff is a lot better on the track. In my case it was a cow and I did beat him to the turn but the beast put me into the ditch!

I don't know how to upload pics directly to this page but I did put two on my information page.
