So I was taking SWMBO to work this morning driving along nice and steady. came to a roundabout started to go round it then my car decided otherwise. was only going about 5 - 7 mph.


roads were sheet ice. probably only hit the railings about 3mph. just slowly bounced off.


 



 


should be able to fix it with a hammer and some glue to put my number plate back on :D


 


anyway no one was hurt apart from my car, but its a piece of poo anyway.

Reminds me of years ago when I went out to play in the snow, there was a great country lane, single track, that I used to love blasting along. It snowed so I went out to have a play. Did 3 "laps" of the lane (about 3 miles long and nice and windy) handbraking round the corners and having a great time. 4th time around I decided to drive it nice and steady and as the text books say you should in the snow rather than like Colin McRea. It was boring as hell for the 1st mile, then came to a corner nice and steady, did everything as per the book and binned it down a ditch :lol: trickled into it at 3mph or something. Dog walkers helped pull/push me back out.


 


Since then I have always attacked snow with much more enthusiasm :D

At least nobody was hurt, that's the main thing.


 


I remember sliding sideways down a hill a couple of years ago and the nose of the car spun out towards oncoming traffic. All I could do was brace. I missed by what must have been millimetres.

Ouch, how annoying, but it'll polish out lol. As said it's lucky it wasn't worse, but it would be better if it hadn't happened at all of course. Hope you get it sorted easily.

Sorted it pretty much. My favourite method. Hit it with a hammer.

Still looking at getting a new motor though, as I've had enough of this one now.
