ouch!!!

how did you possibly manage to hit head on??

I had to replace the entire front right tire assembly to cover my stupid. Cost me a lot of money.

I realized that at 16 you just don't have the experience or income to be risking my baby like that...

Sorry to say, but this is what happens when you screw around like that! I honestly don't know why all these people are being so sympathetic. You drive a FRONT WHEEL DRIVE ECONOMY CAR! DO NOT TRY TO DRIFT IT! I do not usually say this, but you got what you deserved. Your lucky you were not hurt!

Again I'm sorry, I had to say it. Please do not take offense.
So where's the video?

X2 ....You car looked halfway decent before the wreck with the custom mesh and all.. Shame to see it go to waste. Have fun repairing it. Hope this is a lisson learned

it doesn't help having people say i told you so, it just ticks you off

from personal experience i can tell you he learned his lesson he doesn't need everyone to make him feel stupid when he already feels like a [email protected]$$

You can drift cobalts, as a matter a fact there great for it.. the stupid part was doing it in a neighborhood, on snow, with two cars, in opposite directions, PLAYING CHICKEN?!

everyone screws up bad every now and then
