Default can someone local help me salvage stuff from my car today (the4th)?

Well, so I wrecked my car on Wednesday. Long story short, I hit some loose dirt taking a corner, the car spun, off into the woods and down a hill. It's totaled. (I'm fine, tho)

As if that wasn't enough, I'm having so many issues with the tow company that the police called, wednesday evening they refused to grant me access to my car, all I wanted to do was get some stuff out of it, the stereo etc. I know now that I should have persisted with them, but I was just still so out of it, not thinking. So today (thursday) when I finally get to my car, I find suprise that overnight my new head unit and an Eclipse amp were stolen out of the car. There's an amp still in it that I couldn't take out b/c I didn't have socket wrenches with me (have to remove the passanger side seat) and I also want to switch the wheels back to stock. I'm just praying that the amp doesn't walk off tonight. : /

So, basically, is there anyone local who'd be able to drive me to the lot (off Airpark, in gaithersburg) with my stock wheels to switch them, and pull the amp? I'm not sure how hard it is to carry 4 wheels in a sedan (mine was a wagon) is the only thing...

You should be able to claim it on the tow companies insurance.

They did that to me a few years back. They got my 3 amps, and my 2 12's. I got a chance to save my highs, and cd player though.

I ended up getting a 1500 or so back form their insurance. Funny part was they said some1 broke into my car. There is no way to get into the trunk unless you have the key because I disabled the trunk latch. Since there was no forced entry, well we all know who took it. All the tow companies pull these scams. I was lucky I even got money, and only after alot of headache.

So, did you ever finish working on the sub box(and did you get that, too)? And what's next, another WRX wagon?

thanks, I got the amp/speakers/wheels etc off the car on friday. I'm not sure what's next, waiting to hear from the insurance co. I'd like to get another wrx wagon, of course, but I'll have to see how the financial situation plays out. :/

Did you, by chance, have GAP insurance? Cuz if you did, it will cover the cost of the car if your insurance won't cover the total amount of the lein. This would put you back at $0, worst case scenario, and not still in debt with the car that you don't have anymore.

Okay how do you hit some lose dirt and spin out and crash??? Must have been some big patch of dirt. I've hit lose dirt plenty of times but not fast enough to wreck my car.

AWD doesn't mean it will stick to the roads like its on rails. Seems like i read the same kinda story over and over in lancer/subaru boards. "i hit some lose dirt" "damn re92 made me crash". Maybe a driving class would help.

Sorry about the crash, but don't blame rain/lose dirt when your driving like Richard Burns.

Bleu, sorry I didnt offer any help, I hadnt checked internet until today. Plus I was not at home at all.

VSM, I dont think she blamed the "loose dirt" at all. I think she stated in a fairly vague way that she lost control when she hit a patch of dirt. If you understood her to be blaming the dirt or her tires, then I think you might have read too much into this.

this is amazing, because I had serious reservations about posting on nasioc, due to the people who seem to just lie in wait, looking forward to chance to lecture some poor soul who's just had an accident. Honestly I wouldn't have mentioned it at all for that reason, except that I really needed to find someone to drive me to a junkyard. (BTW, thanks john )
I can tell that you are experienced in the ways of making condescending post-accident thread replies. Really, it's as if there's a little checklist somewhere, you've covered your bases well
  • we've got the obligatory "I'm a better driver, because I have encountered the exact same conditions as you and not wecked!!!" comment.
  • a lecture on the finer points of AWD; and how we just cannot expect it to work miracles.
  • even though I didn't mention RE92's, you managed to work them into your reply - congratulations!
  • a helpful suggestion along the lines of how my money would be better spent on driving classes .
  • reminding me, one more time for good measure, that I shouldn't blame extenuating circumstances for something that was entirely my fault. I defer to your wisdom here - it's clear that you know best what happened. It's almost as if you were there!
For future reference, you missed one key point: the "In the end, you have to remember that a car is just metal and plastic, but a person is irreplacable - you're lucky to be alive!!" comment. I'm suprised you overlooked that one.

I'm not sure that I've ever been simultaneously amused and annoyed before, so thanks for the wonderful opportunity to experience that, and also for your valuable contributions. Ron's pretty much got it right, I'm not blaming the dirt for the accident - fact of the matter is I was going a little too fast, and the car was understeering a touch as I went through a left turn which is followed by a right turn. That little drift outwards put my rear right tire in some dirt that bordered the road, and lost traction there, and everything combined was enough to send the car sideways. It's a narrow road, and since it turned back to the right, I found myself in the woods on the other side in about a split second before I could counter steer. Live and learn.

In VA if on a dry road conditions, if you lose control and crash you will get a failure to maintain veicle control ticket. Which is basically a lower reckless driving ticket. If you don't speed in to turns you wouldn't have a problems about sliding and losing control.
I'm sure there is more to this but, alot of WRX inexperienced awd car owners has a false idea that they're cars can handle any rough slippry tarrain like its on dry tarmac.

No doubt. But she never made a single claim towards blameshifting, being on the tires or her driving experience. She merely stated a fact. You can add her to your statistics of "n00b WRX owners thinking they're God's gift to roads" if you want. Maybe this makes you feel better about owning a Civic who knows. Point is your opinion is purely conjecture and hypothetical stereotyping. It's also disrespectful. Seems like you'd need a macro on your keyboard for this answer for any post regarding a crashed WRX. It's no longer just a crash, it's a stupid N00B losing control of his WRX crash.

Well i wasn't trying to be mean or give a lecture, just saying maybe you should not be driving that fast in small back roads with no run off space.

If i wanted to be mean i'd say this, I'm glad that you didn't take out anyone else in your accedent where you were speeding. You know if a honda driver did the same thing you did but ended up dying, you guys would say it was Darwinism at best.

Endlessshine, I can understand that she is a friend of yours. Doesn't matter if i owned a ferrari, or a civic. Speeding and losing control in a public road is nothing to defend about. Besides by the insurence claims in the tristate area, WRX is up there so yes there alot of stupid noobs that speed and crash their WRXs.

You bring up many points that, in fact, I would have never thought of on my own. I'm taking notes - thanks!

[/sarcasm]

do you seriously think I'm not insanely thankful that no one else was involved in this accident?? Of course I am, I'm the only person affected by this, and I'll deal with it, and learn from the whole ordeal.

And what's honda anything got to do with me? I remember you got real mad a while ago when someone made an anti-Civic comment. If you're so convinced all subaru people despise you, ... wait, why do you post here?

This is all I'm gonna say on the matter.

please, oh please, end this thread now

Ok, my bad for starting a flame-war. Before the rest of Mid-A Nasioc catch on to this exciting debate, I'd just like to state for the record that the original post was purely asking for assistance for salvaging parts from a car in an impound lot. It should never have gone in this direction. I'll also leave at this....

-Ron
(and by the way, the parts were apparently salvaged soo.... case closed )

hey look at your member #, look at mine. I've been on this board probably longer then most WRX owners.
There is 2 kinds of subaru enthusists. Guys that are car entusists that love all cars, and loved subarus way before the WRX came ashore, thats me. And there are new WRX bandwagon people that just bought the car because its cool to own a WRX. Not saying thats you at all.

I know alot of older members are they're the coolest CAR entusists not just SUBARU guys. I see alot of new WRX owners, not gonna lump them in one catagory because there are really cool guys that own a WRX. But at the same time i've seem some cocky WRX is better then everything else owners. But by reading some of the quotes from OT and this post I can see that there are those owners here on midatlantic also.

Personally there are of alot of just as cocky honda owers, thats exactly why i left clubsi and started hanging out with the subaru crowd, but i see now that with WRX going main stream that alot of Clubsi attitude is showing up here also.

It's always amusing to watch an articulate human being match wits with a heartless imbecile.


bleuquila - Sorry to hear about your problems..even sorrier that you have to put up with people like the almighty VSM Best of luck getting back on track.

VSM - I didn't realize you were so perfect. Hope you never run into hard times.

Sorry that i dont proof read and edit internet posts.

Hate me for telling the truth, i'm a heartless bitch. I'll say the same thing for anyone speeding and wrecking their cars.

What is the difference between street racing accedent and speeding accedent? There is none.

Could the people from left field quit re-starting this thread (especially over petty stuff like spelling)?

Seems like the people actually involved in the thread just want it to go away. Let it, please. Same team.
