Flying HHR!

thats right.

Today driving the company HHR Panel I took a off ramp u turn going safe speed, but the front tires were bald, and it was raining. I tried pumping the breaks, but I wasn't turning, just going straight! The HHR jumped the curb head on broke a wood turn sign in half and got abot 3 foot in the air, before falling into a bed of some kind of plant. Damn thing was stuck, with the rain i couldn't get it out! Just tire spin. (damn i cant flee the scene lol) tow truck came and pulled that ***** out, but ya know what?

only thing that happened was the alignment is off!! all body panels, rims, axels shit its all ok!! that damn car took a beating and held up! lol

I never been in a accident before, so it kinda shook me up a little. But like the whole time it was happening it was like slow motion video game stuff

oh well, I was fine. and the boss wasnt pissed! haha be safe everyone... if it was RWD i could have corrected it

Sounds like you got lucky!

I kind of did the same thing in a mustang but I was young and dumb and over-corrected. I did a 540 and ended up sliding off a cliff with a four foot drop into DENSE bushes. Not a scratch!

If you stiff me on the tip, I'll leave an = on your driveway to get even.

Jeez. I did 60 off this hump in the road well it's kinda like a bridge it humps cause theres a tunnel under it then water on both sides so the road humps over the tunnel but I went over it doing 60 I deff caught some but not much air! it was awesome! I know I caught some air cause the engine sped up faster as i was in mid air.
