omg... that scares me now.... I remember when my friend was driving after it rained like the day before, and we were going out to eat and hat to take the freeway. Well the like on ramp to the freeway winds sorta like a circle, and i guess my friend was going to fast cuz her back wheels spun out and we spun like 270 degress right at the entry to the freeway and we sat there, we missed the wall by like 4 inches. One of the scariest events of my life. Thats why I wont be driving on the freeway for a longtime, now coupled that I'm just learning stick and hearing that that TT had stalled omg scares me even more...
Much the same way my del Sol met it's premature end-- the car in front of me panic braked to stop at the onramp traffic meter-- which wasn't on. It was 2 in the afternoon. I swerved and braked, coming to a stop on the median to her right.
Unfortunately, the lady behind me in the Maxima couldn't come to a stop quite as fast. Instead of hitting the crappy mid-nineties Escort that started the whole affair, she swerved, and impaled me at about 35mph. I was completely stopped. Out of the path of traffic.
The entire car shortened. The gap between door and front fender was a fingernail's thickness. Her license plate was branded into my bumper cover. Damages came to $5600, so naturally that was the end of that. I miss that go-kart every day.
