Wrecked

I wrecked my cobalt today, on a oil/gravel road...the rear end slipped out and hit a clay berm at about 30mph...i blew my radiator up, destroyed my 4 radiator support braces...nothing else is wrong with my car...but removing the radiator and fan shroud and some other things is a pita...i am completely distraught but im learning something new about my car (how to fix the cooling system) now i have to drive a shitty ol 88 honda accord hahaha wel wish me luck to fix my cobalt

No doubt. Glad everything is not too bad, and hope you get her fixed up soon.

Good thing you're okay. I've encountered quite a few of those gravel/oil roads over the past few weeks. They always make me nervous. Anyone know why they do that?

I think they do it where there is snow regularly because the roads get trashed and repaving them every year would cost a lot.
