good and bad news oops

Post  thelittleredthing on Mon Mar 30, 2009 6:43 am

on thursday me and my mate whent down to norfolk to get my missus her new car she got a bargain on a 1.6 colt mirage all whent well it handeled well looked nice and generaly just a great little car. so good news for her
then saturday night came and i took it out for a little spin with my mate who is looking at getting a colt. whent round a bend that wasnt even sharp just a little steddy bend but it has a dip in the road there so hit it think there was ever a bit of frost or even oil as its in front of a farm so started going round the corner and it whent to far ended up doing a 180 turn and rear end into a bush and a ditch. bad news me and my mate got out unscraped the car though fortunatly not a write off but i have smashed the rear light bust the bumper ripped the side skirt off and it needs a bit of panel pulling.
so as expected i was in the dog house but thankfully she forgive me and its getting sorted. but it couldnt have come at the wrong time i have no job and she only had it two dys

Glad you're ok, sounds like it was lucky you went in the ditch backwards if you didn't have your seatbelt on!
