Im driving thru a community center parking lot going over 15-20 big, deep speed humps slowly. Everything is fine till I get half way thru with a line of impatient parents behind me and a school bus when I hear a horrible scraping sound while straddling a speed hump. My BMR cross brace grinds into a hump that is just a little higher or deeper than the others and Im stuck! Had to back up with lots of grinding- ouch. Luckily, no damage! BTW a few parents called me a$$hole too, so I guess Im part of the club as well!

There are some pretty steep parking lot entrances around these parts. You know they are steep when you see the black top has been scraped from others hitting it.
I usually wind up blocking the entrance getting in and out since I'm at such an angle. People look at you like you're an idiot, but they just don't understand what's going on. Oh well,,,that's just too bad,,,,,I didn't design these stupid parking lots.
Really makes it a pain to drive the 4th gens anymore. I really wish they didn't have so much nose overhang.

Well on the way home a couple weeks ago from buying my 2002 t/a after selling my 98 formy, as soon as i got back from the 120 mile trip...i was on the high way and a truck threw what i assume was a fuc*in boulder and dented my fender all bad. Then when i got home the engine light came on. The cats went bad. OH and the power steering pump was ran with no freakin fluid i guess and i forgot to check it before going home and burned out the pump or something cuz it whines like HELL and hard to turn sometimes. Oh and after getting my first ls1. Same day i let my older brother drive it.....he bottomed out so hard that it scrapped the whole underside of the front end. But the most painful thing was right after polishing and cleaning my rims on my formy all nice and shineh...i grinded the rim on a curb. Oh i wanted to myself for that. Hmm i have bad luck...

I had just bought a brand new Silverado and on one day both the front and rear bumpers had been bashed while in parking lots.
I went in front first at one place and when I came out the rear bumper was bashed like someone backed into it.
So next place I backed into a space and when I came out the front bumper was bashed like someone had again backed into it.
All in one day! - I was looking for someone to =
So within a week of purchase I was driving a new Silverado that looked like it had 100,000 miles on it.
- So don't be so hard on yourself, the only way things stay perfect is if you put velvet ropes around it and let it collect dust.

I also always park on the other side of the lot where ever I go. 99% of the time I never have anyone around me, most are too lazy to walk that far
When I do find someone parked next to me, it's usually another nice car that is out there for the same reason, so no worries.
