Title: James5
Post by: 5teve L on 20:39, Thu 25 August 2011
Any of you not on RTOC, James wrote his car off this morning, he is fine with just a few bruises, from the sounds of it he is VERY lucky to be with us. He lost the car & rolled or flipped it a couple of times before coming to a rest on the roof  :shock:
He seemed to think it was a total loss as front & rear were gone plus most of the glass & the sidey went.   :cry:
After all that hassle  :(

Hope you get things sorted matey.

I would dread having just a prang in a 5, never mind rolling it a few times.

Heres to a speedy recovery!

Cheers Peeps, not sure I will be back with a 5 for a while, even getting behind the wheel of a car at the mo is scary :(  I am using the bus service at the mo to get to work.  Physically my body is ok but mentally I am struggling, think it's the severity of the incident.

I may not be on here or RTOC much peeps but if you need to contact me I will be on occiasionally if not there are plenty of peeps on here with my number so just post a thread up and someone will contact me.

Mate I know its scary after a big accident. After the accident I was in I hated being a passenger in a car going at speed. It still scares the poo out of us now (13 years later) being a passenger in a car driven at speed that I am not driving !!

Glad your ok and take it easy... !!

Wish the best to you mate even we don't really know each other.
 I've been to an accident where i actually flew 4 meters with the car and over 1 meter high. When i landed the car was a complete reck and i was with a banged head (thank god i had an old bucket seat and hold the most of me from banging on the side)
Sorry about the car, but after those years u still have the knowledge, the friends and the capability of building one again.

Wish you well mate.
