On the way home last night while sitting at a light I got side swiped by an IDIOT kid who was #1 speeding his ass off and #2 couldn't control his car.

Sitting at a red light on my way home from a party I was at with some other Jax guys (Wipeout, Brazen06, and Spyral) I end up on Atlantic Blvd and I hear the squealing of tires look in my rear view to see a TA (late 80 early 90) come flying up out of control sideways smoking tires. Before I have time to react he is by my drivers side door and clips my friggin front qtr panel. He finally comes to rest after a good 50-75 ft ahead of me and then thinks he is gonna take off but then changes his mind as I jump right on his ass and make him pull over into a parking lot. I get out of the car and basically loose my flippin mind. He asks if I'm okay and is getting ready to get out of the car I tell him to stay in the f'n car if he wants to see his f'n family EVER again while I cool down. 10 min later after I call the cops I tell him to get out (needless to say he must have shat himself the whole time). I get his insurance and ask what the f is wrong with him. I tell him I saw him behind me when I got to the first red light and he was behind a mini van. The distance from the one light to the next is at best an 1/8 mile and you had to be f'n flying to dumbsh*! (as the LOOOONG black marks on the road tell). I tell him you better have f'n insurance if not its your azz (thank god he does and it is his) I take all his information after that I let Brazen06 and Wipeout (who I hear were having a....well lets say a good time) know I got hit. They in turn call Spyral who was heading in my direction anyway. He showed up with V8Blazer and his woman along with some GTO guy who no one ever sees (he is the Bigfoot of the group) they hang with me till all is taken care of (Sweet Lookin out guys I appreciate it). So to end the night he gets a ticket for inability to control his vehicle AND reckless driving and I get to send my baby to the dealer for who knows how long for a new rim and qtr panel. Here is the aftermath.

SIDE NOTE: My wife was the first to inform me that I owned this car EXACTLY as long as I owned my last Goat and wrecked it and to be exact it is to the EXACT day (from the time I purchased to the time I wrecked) WTF she says maybe I should consider another car :eek: Talk about your karma




This pic is deceiving the rim is actually gashed in.

That kid was a tool. You did hear the part when he said his car went 13.3 @ 128 with a 1.6 60". You should have body slamed him through his windshield.

Glad your OK, BTW from the look of the impact, it seems your front left wheel didn't suffer much of a shock. Are you having any suspension problems ?

I only drove it home and from what I could tell no. Everything "seems" cool. I opened the hood this am and last night also looked under the car to see etc seems like only a real good graze so to speak that really effected the outer fender only (putting a nice crease in it, and grazing the wheel.

That sucks!! I know how you feel though. Acouple of weeks ago I went to walmart at about 1:00am. When I came out there was a shopping cart next to my car. I park so far away from the store so things like this don't happen...

You're luckier than me though... you can get a whole new fender...all I could get was bodywork and a 2007 Cadillac DTS for a week.

Order Body Parts A.s.a.p

First of all - sadden to hear another GTO - smacked.

I understand - my car is in the shop due to me being asleep at the wheel.
I'm so sorry your going threw this - like I've told everyone - I have C.W.S. - that is Car Withdraw Syndrome. I miss my car so much.

My car had been sitting in the body shop for over a month - not due to the shop either. I sat there while the ordered the parts... and when they came in finially - damaged from shipping and still waiting on one parts - due to being a GTO! Love the car - don't love the wait... so get those parts ordered ASAP!

The shop has advised me my last part is suppose ?? to be in Mon/Tues and I may get my car back this next week... holding my breath.... more than likely killing over at this point! :) Anyway.... sorry I feel you pain!

Sorry to hear about your run in with that dumb $hit. At least you're not injured. Just sucks, more so because they'll be one less of the best GTO color on the road for awhile. Hope you're back on the road soon.
