: Almost Wrecked it....Stoney Style

Ok , so my never ending bad shit saga continues. Get a call this morning , mom forgot something and wanted me to bring it to her. So i grab the item and make my way to my little brothers school where she is. I get there and the damn school buses have blocked the road to the parking area. So i have to back all the way out of this curved lane thing. I start backing up and turning when i see this little white car coming at me. I forgot about the curb and up and over i went and all sorts of noises bangs and crinkiling occurs. Turns out the little white car was parked. Damn .....

So I say "to hell with it" and leave the car and bring this stupid item to my mom. She says "did you have any trouble?" I said "naww , i only destoryed my car bringing you an ice pack". A ****ING ICE PACK!!!

I go back to the car and try to move it but its laying on the curb on the right side of the unibody. It wont move but it will make cool noises and do smoky burnouts. Mom proceeds to give me a bunch of shit for hurting the car. Than asks if i can hurry up and get it off there so she can be with my little brother. I looked up and said "just leave , ive had enough of everyone kissing his ass".

So , im pissed , try shoveing the spare under the right front to get it out but it wont work. Time to call a wrecker....

Hour later tow guy rolls up. First words out his mouth are "i aint touching the car till you sign a damage waver".

SHIT that doesnt sound good at all.

Im pretty much screwed , mom and the rest of my family have left me there to be with my little brother, takeing the pickup with them. I sign the stupid waver and he hooks a chain up to the car and drags it like a toy behind this powerstroke ford. More noises , hissing , check engine lamp comes on , service ABS comes on , and im now pushing the brake as hard as i can and screaming at this guy to stop. Hes drug me another 20 feet down this curb. I get out , now the right front tire is destoryed. He says "im gonna keep dragging you over to that spot". He gets in and proceeds to drag me further. At this point i say to myself "if anyones destorying this car it will be me". As im being drug along i fire the engine up , slam from nutral to drive and floor it. It littlerally flew off the curb and ended up sideways on the lane.

Guy gets out and says "need that tire changed?". "I said no , please leave i dont want it any more damaged, just leave". Threw the spare on pretty much flat and limped it home. Its plastic underliners and shit flapping around under it.

Luckily the wheel is ok , so ive ordered a exact replacement tire from tire rack (a 06 deville tire). Im im gonna throw one of my stock 94 tire and wheel combos on it for now. Then im gonna get it on stands and figure out what all is wrong under it.

Carnage pics soon ....

Mike! What up Dude?! You need a weather change my brother. You've got to get out from under that black cloud that's following you around.

Has your dream of auto design died completely? I'd hoped you'd be out my way by this time. 'Course, you never know what life will throw at you, I've made some fairly drastic changes in the last 6 months myself.

Love you Bro,

Stoney, this blows. This really really blows. You were able to drive it home, that's alot better than I figured when I first started reading. Well, I'll be thinking the car, I can only offer my best wishes that things aren't as bad as they might be and that she'll be back to good shortly.

its integratey has been weaked and when called on it COULD snap on you

Stoneage_Caddy
10-28-06, 06:15 PM
yeah i might look into getin another one ....hopefully i can find one somewhere .....the exaust is messed up too , but as you can tell its stock stuff with 160k and 12 years on it so one of these days ill get it replaced ...

90Brougham350
10-28-06, 06:22 PM
Stoney, I'm extremely relieved to see the damage is not extensive. I agree on that control arm, it's probably not safe for the long-run anymore. Exhaust work fortunately isn't expensive; another bonus. All in all, things could been much worse.

thats for sure ...if it had been a northstar i woulda torn the oil pan off ...extremely lucky .....

hey, at least your grandmother dosn't have the police looking for you for Grand Theft Auto for stealing her 1990 eldorado, from her garage while she was taking a nap, then taking it to the dealership, paying for a new tranny, and having it installed then returning it to the garage, all in less than three hours. This actually happened to me three or so years ago. My grandmother had dementia and this was one result of this.

You probably would've torn off or at least put a hole in the oil pan... which is what happened to mine in February, and it's still not fixed. (It would be, but somehow I lost my front caliper brackets.)

I'm glad to hear Gladys is going to be OK stoney.

Oh man I feel bad for you. Shit just keeps going wrong, but don't worry. Everything will fall into place. I also second the bubble idea

Remember, you can always reck the car yourself! :histeric: Maybe a change of location would help. Some people jsut don't mix well with where they are,

I am never unamazed with your posts. How so much bad things could happen to one person is odd.

10-29-06, 08:01 PM
Mike, here are my simple rules that as a project foreman I've posted for my guys. Maybe they will help you too. Here they are;

1. Nobody's perfect. (But we strive toward excellence!)

2. It's not a problem, it's an opportunity. (Let's find a solution & takes steps not to repeat it!)

3. Improvise, adapt and overcome! (Be creative but stay within trade standards!)

Sometimes we just need to take a step back, look at the big picture and then take each day one at a time, focus on what you can do today to get to your goal for the future.

Remove exaust sheilding
Remove the straps and prepare to be clobberd by flying fuel tanks
Remove Fuel filler tubes (NOT EASY FROZE ON)
REPLACE fuel pump (VERY EASY)

CUSS SCREAM AND CRY trying to get fuel tank straps line line back up with holes....
Reassemble all of the above

Remove 335 dollars from wallet and set it on fire in the pool of gasoline youve been laying in for 2 hours ...
