wrecked my wagon this weekend

Recommended Posts

well, I should be dead. wrecked my car friday night. learned a valuable lesson.

 

so I hit a 6 foot frozen gravel pile at 45 mph, jumped the bank, car flew 20+ feet distance wise, probably 4 or 5 feet in the air.

 

sprained the crap out of my thumb, bent my steering wheel in about 2 inches.

pushed my 1/4 panels back a little bit, doors still open with out binding with the fenders. pushed my passenger side headlight in about an inch.

 

Got it running today, only on 3 cylinders though. it looks like the timing belt slipped on one side, so I'm gonna fix that tommorow at work. Car still drives as straight as it did before the wreck.

 

Damn, these cars are tough

You coudda hurt yourself real bad.

Sounds like you were wearing your seatbelt?

 

Hard to believe the car is still driveable.

We want to see before and after pics...

 

Good Luck,

I would be thanking the Subaru gods that you are alive if I were you man! Good thing that soobs are tough little bastards! Surviving something like that is unlikely but having the car survive too is awesome.
