Dogs are forever in
the pushup position...

Unhappy She's gone... I can't believe she's gone

Well, it took only 10 seconds to loose what I had taken months to get, several hundred dollars to get made right and in an instant, she's gone forever...



The STi V2 lip that was custom made for my wagon was the subject of a brutal attack- a 90+ pound trailer retread blow out. We were on our way to Peru, IN for a CenDiv Solo2 and I was in Louisville, KY in morning rush hour traffic at around 50 MPH when it shot from the truck in front of me, smashing into the car- instantly shattering the lip and ripping it from the car. I pulled over about 30 minutes later to see only the remanance of it still dragging from the front of the car... Well, I suppose I'll have to splurge for an actual STi lip and get it molded to fit the car. Damn gang... almost $800 worth of fiberglass, CF and paint- snuffed out in an instant.

What a bunch of crap. Those damn truckers should be forced to buy new tires. I had a car in front of me kick up a retread and it hit my passenger side mirror and knocked it off.

Miranda-

The tire kicked up from another truck in front of me- I didn't see the offending rig to get any info. Just a spot of bad luck for me is all.
