    Angry Wrecked it today!

    Was on way down to a concert, nice drive, talking to a buddy and Bam I hit a armadillo, loose control and go thru a fence. Spend next hour helping guy fix the fence. I may post some pics tommorow. Drove down to the shop and dropped it off already. Not too bad, but damaged by exhaust and drive shaft loop is bent pretty sever. Bad part is im actually a insurance adjuster and feel kinda dumb about it.

    First off, sorry to hear about your Z, and I'm glad everybody is ok...

    And secondly, would it work in your favor to be in the position you are? Maybe a free parts upgrade in your near future?

    Right after i got my car, I was washing it, and took it for a drive to air dry a little. I was out on a farm to market road, lots of hills and curves....came around a curve and bam, big ass dillo in the road.

    since I was making a right curve, i just straightened up and went wide to go around him....didnt swerve or over correct, but when i went to get back on my side....went a little hard, back end came around.....i proceeded to switch directions 7 times, hitting each ditch 3 times.....but kept from totally spinning out.

    Pulled over, car is COVERED in mud...rims full of grass. all the way up to roof, dirt.....gravel was up inside my air dam, tires were smoking....freakin sucked...

    luckily no damage though...but I went home...washed it again...and towel dried.

    I'd say he was able to control his vehicle before he lost it, no divine influence needed.

    One could say that "God" placed the armadillo there to test the drivers abililties LOL.
