Damn, sorry to hear that. I know what the feeling of car meeting lamp post feels like and its not nice. But yeah, as already said, the car can be fixed.

Make sure your insurance pays the bill for the lamp post to the council, otherwise you will get it.

I was wondering when you'd pluck up the courage to post it up!

To be fair, it wasn't all Adam's doing, it was the car. I was in it about a week ago after I got his engine running right, and the test drive was kinda scary, even at just 5psi. As soon as it was on boost it'd spin regardless of gear due to cheap tires that the seller fitted and bad geometry. Seems it had been set up for skidding. As soon as it came on boost the back end would kick to the left even on straight roads. Only thing this time was that back wheel clipped the grass as it was doing it, and spat him into a lamppost.

Unfortunately he was the squishy thing behind the wheel in control of it....still his fault


But... Glad to hear no one was hurt. Just gone through the same with the girlfriend and her beetle so can feel your pain fella!

Fair enough, the car had a lot to do with it but as you say it's still the driver driving. Could have been driven differently, etc. I'm just stating that it wasn't all down to Adam or a lack of ability, just a lack of self control in a car that was rather wayward.

Sorry to hear this mate. After all the crap you had with getting to this point. I must say that I was bit worried when you posted a thread about you taking it out in the snow. I'm sure with the support of the forum and help from the members it'll be back to full strength in no time. Maybe sort the Geo and tyres out too. ;)
