crashed the ute =(

Postby Gordz » Thu Mar 05, 2009 12:50 pm

Tuesday night heading home (100% sober) from censored night at work, in the heavy rain I left the highway at 100kph and spun up an embankment =(=(=(=( but not a mark on me, ute needs a little love, missed a pole by under a foot (saw the tracks this morning and omgg it was close.. taking photos tonight) but all in all extremely lucky!! Anywhoo, moral of the story is don't use cruise control in the wet, because if you lose traction, the engine will just put more power down!

*sigh* poor ute.

Sorry to hear about your accident, Gordz. I hope you get the ute back to its original state quickly. It's good that you missed the pole. The accident could have been so much worse otherwise.

Nice lights. And I gather you painted the interior? Looks pretty neat. Doesnt really blend in with the stock color though were you thinking of painting that too?
