    Freaking Ice

    Turned to pull in the parking lot at work today and the TA didn't get the memo.
    Slid on the ice and kept going straight underneath the back of a pickup. Knocked off my left front headlight and tore about half my front fender off. 12 years I've driven this car through every kind of element imaginable and an icy parking lot gets me.

    On the bright side at least it was the 104,xxx mile 96 WS6 and not the '78 or 13,XXX mile 02 WS6. Still sucks balls though.

    Be careful on ice!

    That sucks man! Sorry to hear.

    Last year when we had a bad snow/ice storm i was driving like a grandma one day on my way home from work(bout 10 miles from my house) and slid off the road 2 times. Luckily I didnt hit anyone/anything and no harm was done to my car. The first time I slid off the hwy was about a mile from my work, had several people in trucks attempt to pull me out with no luck. Finally, about a fuckin hour later this old cowboy lookin hick stops in his big ass dodge 4x4 and pulls me out. Once back on the hwy I made it all the way to my entrance to my neighborhood before I slid off the road as I was making my turn, going not a hair over 5mph. Luckily one of my neighbors was behind me and stopped and then went and got a chain and pulled me out. Needless to say I drove my wifes jeep the next day to work!
