Oh hahaha.... well, here goes.

I was 17, and took the formerly-mine 929 to school that morning because dad had the day off. RWD + rain = fun. I was sliding it around corners, and enjoying it actually... so I decided to do ONE MORE right in front of the school. Well, I got a little too sideways, and stupidly tapped the brake. Sent the car all the way around and hopped all 4 wheels up over the curb. It broke the seal on the two left-side tires, so there was no pushing it out, and even bent a rim. Fortunately, dad had bought a set of RX8 takeoffs from a guy for $300 (he needed rent money) so those went on the car and it was able to go home, but oh boy did I get an ass-whooping when I got out of school that day...

Probably all the damage I caused to the rear differential on my '95 Roadmaster. I tell ya it's hard NOT to do a burnout in one of those things when you're 17, especially when you've got the posi-traction rear end. :) The rear diff would clunk bad when coming out of a turn under acceleration. I never looked into it and sold it to a 74 year old pastor would would probably never drive it hard enough to get it to act up.

Back when I made the mistake of buying that brand new 2003 Passat, it was in for a bad catalytic converter (yes, brand new) and I got a loaner Passat to drive. That car was involved in a series of "adventures"... one of which resulted in a traffic cone somehow melting itself to the undercarriage...

Enterprise should probably ban me. Took a Saturn Aura to Bonneville, caked it with salt at 110mph, then drove it through a swampy part of North Dakota where the bottom of it got caked with frog guts (mating season, they were crossing the road). Also climbed and descending some serious mountain areas in northern California and Utah.

It was a great car though! Put 10,000 miles on that rental. Brought it back needing a brake job.

I don't think I've ever really done anything too serious to a car. I guess the worst thing would be in the 2008 Kia Rhondo rental I had in '08. I went to visit friends in St. Petersburg, Fl. Just outside of downtown there is a hill the locals refer to as "thrill hill". From the side of the hill going into town it didn't look very threatening so I didn't pay a lot of attention to the speed limit. I topped the hill and the road disappeared! No damage was done, but all four tires left the pavement. That was freakin fun. I drove the snot out of it the week I had it. I picked it up with 1,600 miles on it and returned it with 3,200 miles. :D

I thought long and hard about this, and the one that I think bears repeating is. When I was in college, I worked for Tousley Ford in White Bear Lake MN. I was a parts delivery driver. I drove a series of 97-04 (Graduated college in 04) F-150 4X2 XL V6 reg. cab Long beds with wooden racks. Well one day I was having trouble finding a hood out in the warehouse so I pulled my pickup up to the front of the parts depot to go in and seek help from a guy that knew the warehouse like the backside of his hand. I go inside and the gentleman is busy on the computer and said it would be a few minutes, so I sit down and BS with him while I am waiting. About 10 minutes later I hear someone yell, “JOHN” and run for the front door. I get up and wander to the front assuming my pickup is in someone’s way and needs to be moved. When I get out there I notice my pickup is missing. I thought “did someone steal it?” Well my suspicions were quelled when I noticed several people running towards the woods at the end of the lot. Apparently I left the pickup in neutral (yes it was an automatic) and eventually it decided to start to roll. It rolled all the way across the parking lot, and turned down the exit ramp towards the highway, then it hit the curb and the wheel went immediately the right lock. Then it jumped the curb crossed the grass, and went down a big hill into the woods. It travelled through the woods about 100’ somehow missing every tree. I was expecting the worst, but somehow it survived with only a few scratches from the tree branches. I went and got out Bronco push truck which had chains on the back, hooked it up and pulled the pickup out. I was sure I was going to get fired but instead my boss just laughed. He couldn’t figure out how it happened. To this day I can’t either. Who leaves an automatic pickup in neutral.

One time I devastated the "Cart Corral" at work (Don't know the actual name, but that is what I am told it is called. It's the thing in the middle of the parking lot where you put the trolleys in). It was after store hours and every present employee got to witness that happens when a Ford Expedition takes on a trolley collection bin. As predicted, there was not even a scratch on the Expedition, but it took the assistance of another Ford to mold the remains back into something semi-usable. I imagine by morning, the lackeys who are tasked with collecting carts never knew the difference. This was done intentionally and there was no damage to any vehicle in the process, but it has to be the worst thing I have ever done unless you count all the things that have gone bad on my Hearse and had to be replaced. I didn't really DO those things, I was just the lucky guy who got to have them fail on myself from age and wear. Ripping the hood ornament off of a douchebag's German-Egg-Car when he is stalking your sister and violating a restraining order on your property all at once doesn't count, right?

The way I figure it, like 99% of Corvette owners, the driver does not know ANYTHING about cars whatsoever.

I hope I haven't told this story before, here at the Forums, but as it is from a time long, long ago and involves a Cadillac I will tell this tale of unintentional desicration!

For those who may not know, I was fortunate to have a 1962 Cadillac convertible (in 1967)during my senior year at the University of Wisconsin (Madison). I bought this car from an uncle after my 1958 Jaguar XK 150 drophead coupe was totalled by a drunk driver on my way from California back to Madison, WI for my senior year. It was white with white and maroon leather upholstery (not vinyl) and had a black fabric top. The car was in very nice condition and I had improved it further by fully detailing at my uncle's home before completing the trip to Madison.

Needless to say, this car was quite a fun thing to have and I really enjoyed taking my friends for top down Fall rides in the lovelly countryside around the campus. As Fall turned to Winter we also enjoyed doing top down sleigh rides as the snow began to fall and things turned really cold. The Cad's massive HVAC system, not mention the warm co-eds, kept things nice and cozy during these outings.

During the first semester of the year I made friends with a lot of kids from Wisconsin (being a "out of state" student myself I was usually friends with other students from places other than Wisconsin). At anyrate it turned out that a young couple who had become friends were getting married following the finnish of the semester and they invited me to be a guest at their wedding. I was more than happy to attend because the couple was of Polish ancestry and I had never been to a Polish wedding before. This couple ask if I could drive them in the Cadillac from the church to VFW Hall (which was out in the country) and of course I was more than happy to perform this service for these friends. The morning of the wedding I got the car washed and it looked like a million bucks. I drove to the church and parked in an appropriate place to pick up the bride and groom after the ceremony. When the marriage had taken place bride and groom proceeded out the from doors of the church and got in the back seat of the convertible, whose top was up because it was very cold and it had begun to snow.

The trip out into the countryside was uneventful and we arrived at the VFW Hall in good shape and the new couple were delivered without mishap. But my luck was about to change. This was quite a large wedding and many guests were expected for the reception. The fellows who were directing the parking of the cars waved me into a "special" parking space. As I pulled forward onto this snow covered place of honor the ground gave way under the front of Cadillac plunging it through what had been a wood covered cess pool. Yup their it was fins to the sky with its' front wheels, bumper and grill fully involved with contents of the primitive ceptic tank. While the ground around this pit was frozen the contents of the pit were not. I had to call a local wrecker to hoist my car out of the muck. Needless to say the car was really a sight with its' nearly acqired front end treatment. Fortunately, the car was undamaged from the event and I was able to drive it home. Some where I have pictures of my white Cadillac convertible with a brown snoot!

The couple had plans to depart from the reception in a car of their own, so this was not a problem. When my friends ask me how was the party, I ahd to reply I had had a literally shitty time! But in fact had a great time getting my fill of kolbasa and learning how to do the polka!

I did do great damage to cars (Land Rovers) while in Africa, colliding with camels and being ambushed by a troop of baboons. But I don't consider those incidents to be my inflicting damage on the cars ... and they weren't mine anyway (they ere yours dear taxpayer!).

My story involves a rental car too.

I was 15yo, wanting to do anything that involved driving. My Mom/StepDad were mowing the grass & needed gas for the mower. I volunteered. The gas station was all but 1 mile away. I fill the can no problem & set it on the passenger side floor board of the rental car. I'm making a right in the parking lot & the gas can falls over.

Ignorantly and instantly, I lean over to right the can before gas spills on the interior. As I'm doing this, I'm still moving, not very fast, but I'm in motion. When I've reoriented the can to the vertical position, I sit back upright & immediately notice a landscaping partition in the middle of the parking lot, dead ahead. It was made of old railroad timbers, set in the ground vertically.

My reaction was to immediately slam on the brakes . . . except I hit the accelerator (which probably turned out to be a good thing). Before I know it, I've "jumped" this landscaping partition & was on the other side where I finally hit the brakes. The partition was maybe 2' high by 3' wide.

A neighbor was in the parking lot & happened to have observed all of this. As soon as I got out, he screamed "DO IT AGAIN! That looked just like the Dukes of Hazzard" (a popular show at the time).

If I had hit it w/o slowing down, I might've high centered. The metal bumper must've pushed the timbers down at an angle & I made it over.

I freaked out about it a lil & drove home debating to tell my Mom/StepDad. I owned up to it & they were proud of me for stepping up. I didn't get in any trouble!

Months & months later, we get a call from the rental car place asking if we had been involved in any collision with the car. My Mom said "I never hit anything in it while driving it" . . . which was true, I was driving! ;)

Broadsiding a barbed-wire fence after sliding off a slick road with bald tires on my '74 Celica in high school. Only damage to the car was a couple of dings on the rocker panel and some jagged scratches on the front fender, neither of which I bothered to fix. The fence, however, was totaled. :lol:

Honorable mention: Driving my Dad's '62 Falcon 80 MPH down the freeway with the parking brake on. There was no light on the dash to tell you the brake was still on. Brake linings were smoking pretty good by the time I got to work. I think I waited at least 20 years before I told my Dad about that.

There were 3 of us in the car after it came to rest at a 45 degree angle. My large friend next to me ripped the seat out of its mounts. Myself, and his brother in the back had to climb out and lift up the 11" thick door to get him out.

After we stood around in the rain and had a smoke, we went back 10 miles to my house, snuck in the backyard, and grabbed shovels and wood to try and save it... Wasnt F'n happening so we gave up and called it a night. The next morning the cops show up at the house because one of the workers spotted the car and reported it stolen. It's still raining btw... Before we could get out there to try and save it during the day, the dirt bridge into the place collapses under one of the dump trucks. The driver is injured and it makes the news.

There I was back on my bicycle, license taken away, and my first car is trapped on its side in some podunk mudhole. Agonizing it was. It took them 2 weeks to clean up that mess and repair the bridge so we could get to the car. My dad paid a guy in a loader to pull it out. Amazingly it started after only a couple cranks! Unfortunatly the rest of the pictures have been lost but the one above is from right after it was pulled out.

STUPID.

How long did you lose your license for that little stunt? :lol:

Maybe a month? Cant remember.... half of that was a given since I couldnt drive it, or even SEE it for 15 days. If that bridge didnt collapse that night, the car would have been subject to a redneck bondfire like every other abandonded vehicle out there. :crying:

"Discharge of a paintball gun is illegal within the city of Palm Bay, except at a municipal paintball field." Wow seriously? :lol:

You lost your license for abounding a car or for what?

Yeah, no paintball shooting in the backyard.... Its considered a firearm, as are BB guns. Lame.

Parents took the license away. Now that I think about it, I beleive they gave it back after we got the car out since they thought having my precious rusto-bucket-o-shit stuck in a ditch far away was punishment enough. :tisk:

In a Caddy?

Cruising down the highway in a Gorgeous white 1968 Cadillac Ambulance in the late seventies and watching as the Right Rear wheel passes me on the meridian of the highway. The car settled down and just slid to a gentle stop. Took me a few hours to get a set of lug bolts to pound into the drum.

I hit black ice on the freeway at 70mph, spun and hit the guard rail, then was slammed into by a fully loaded 18-wheeler. :shocked: Then I rolled twice into the ditch. Completely smashed my beautiful new Chrysler to bits. I went to the hospital, but I luckily got out of it with neck injuries and a concussion.

On a side note, it was still running when it landed, the doors all opened properly, and only one window broke. It's a miracle that my friends and I aren't dead. That Chrysler saved our lives.

You can say that again!! I take you and your friends were wearing safety belts?

One day 8 or 9 years ago I pulled my wife's Bonneville out of the garage to move a bunch of my woodworking tools to one side. While I had it in the driveway, I took my shopvac and cleaned it out. When I went to back the car in I was paying more attention to the driver's side which is where I moved all the tools and there was now less room. I was most of the way in when I heard this sickening thud/creeak/crunch. I had neglected to close the front passenger side door all the way. Since our driveway slopes down away from the house, when I backed up the door swung open and since I was so focused on the other side, the door hit the front of our house, denting our siding and bending the hades out of the car's hinges. My wife heard it inside and asked me what the *expletive* happened. I'm sure my face was red as any beet ever was.

It qualifies as double duty: The worst thing I ever did to a car and probably one of the top ten embarrassing moments of my adult life.

Of course. I will not leave the driveway otherwise.

The $150 Dodge before mods and after. That would be a sawzall in my hand, who needs a top in the summer? The Dodge did not make the 2,000 mile ride home, but it got real close!

Ugh.. Don't get me started. I'm surprised I'm still alive. Best race I ever had was with a housewife driving a white corvette. I had a Riviera GS and really startled the hell out of her..
then there was the time I wiped out a NYC cab with a caprice wagon, put a rented Town Car to the redline and got blasted by a Bentley in the desert, on and on...no no, I just can't..
