Just written off my Baby. B16 YUK is no more.

Got distracted, slipped in the wet and clipped the rear, spun around a couple of times and landed next to a huge sign.

There is no way the car can be repaired. Just feel shocked and a little angry at myself for being such an arse. At least I wasn't hurt. And nobody was invovlved. I shall see what the insurance say and there may be a few cheap bits to go at a later date.

She still looked so beautiful even when on the back of a tow truck. How sad am I?

thanks guys..

more shocked than anything else.

You know what they say about power and responsibility - moral of the story treat any fast car with respect at all times!

Shall have to get another car soon, wonder how much the insurance will clobber me by? :(

Ah well, it was good to get that off my chest.

I think it is a good time to move onto my ambitions of a 240Z for now and leave skylines for a year or so.

and tigger- thats ok I shall wave to you instead :)

God man so sorry to hear that, but as u say RWD and wet aren't big lovers are they.

Sure you will get a reasnoble offer for the car and move on, but at least your fine mate which matters even if it never seems that way! If u get another skyline sure will take more car;)

If i'm in the area still i'll be sure to buzz ya m8:)

The hurting is on the inside

Still want a Skyline, but will have to work very hard for one now.

And no driftaholic - I would never dream of drifting on a public road, I know how crap I am :D

Driver error pure and simple, should have been watching the roads especially since it wasn't really raining and there was only a fine layer of damp on the ground.

BTW any ideas of a book price for a 94 GTST?

Price wise about can be from 7k to 10k mate as being an import its difficult to get an accurate price.

Be sure to cancel that mirror glass mate on a lighter not, u'll be okay mate as if the insurance give u a good price theres nothing stopping u apart from insurance getting another skyline.

Perhaps....

Its just all the work done and parts shoved in preparation for the power is now all outta the window.

Blitz 03 rims = 3 scratched and one no longer round!
HKS coilovers = 3 should OK but one a lot longer than the others
:D
Jun Kit - not crash resistant :D
At least the xenons may still be intact and the GTR brakes should be OK :)

And all my dreams shattered (for now) - hell I think the only way to make myself feel better is to get an R32 GTR!!!!

Shall see what insurers have to say.

I just had a naughty thought the RB25 in a 200 may yet be possible since the damage was all to the rear :) Perhaps I can still have a GT2540 after all.

Goodnight all I feel better already.

GT-R

Take it as a sign from the gods that it's time for you to get a GT-R.
I had a look on Autotrader last night and there was as lot out there under 15k, some R32 GT-R's in there too. There were GT-S's for 4k! Not sure about their provenance, but it's a start.

Xenons

Hiya all,

Got a couple of enquiries regarding the xenons, in short I have to deal with the insurance people before I can reply to the questions. Should they remain intact and if I do have the right to take em out, then I shall make em available. Should I not be advertising them on the forum, then assume the worst :(

I anticipate a long wait for the insurers to get their behinds into gear, like I say if anything can be salvaged i shall post up.

Cheers,
Y.
