No point paying for it then the paint peeling further down the track...

whille hanging the back out around a round-a-bout, the tail hit oil and flicked right out,mounted gutter hit a keep left sign at around 45kph, that wasnt the worst bit, directlt infront of me was a concrete power pole, that was my main concern, put the boot in and flicked the car around the pole. missed it by 20cm. and ended up in a ditch.

when i got out i thought i made it out clean, i didnt notice the "keep left" sign, as i said the power pole was more concerning.

to make matters worse there was a police interceptor who saw the whole thing. he just said i was stupid, and didnt fine me saying i had been punished enough, and nothing sways someones driving style more than loosing their car.

but wait theres more... after the car had stoped, i got out a little flustered, and went to see what damage had been done. all i hear was cluck...and the repeating sound of the car locks, then they stop. leaving the car locked. WoooT. i had to wait 2 hours for the RACV to get there and he was in my car in about 20 sec's. *took mental note on the process*.

Then we got the car out of the hole and found i'dd bent a front strut. soo i had to wait another hour, for a friends father to bring an F250 and car trailer.

that was one long day just like this post...lol ahwell the car will be bigger and better for the geelong all ford day.

And he made a phone call to his dad (me) starting with these words "Are you sitting down?"

The panel beater is doing it all at mates rates.

Anyone know a driving instructor I can send rushed to?????

ehehe sounds like some fun, i almost did the same thing to my old car, luckily some one else wrote it off for me, but u shud stop using ur car as a pole removal device, its not the most efficient method, and tends to get quite expensive. On the whole though thats a gud price.

i got the damn sign tho.... took it to the farm and its been shot quite a few times...lol , a swiss keep left sign.

yea my driving style has changed, setting it up as a cruiser, has the advantage of holding onto my licence and my life longer.
