Aww man Frank, I'm so sorry to hear about this. When I read this it made me sad man because you had one of my favorite celicas. I'm happy that you're okay though because that's the most important part right there!Alright guys, I figure I might as well share this. For those of you who do not know, I totaled the celica last week. Im perfectly fine tho. Sad thing is I wasn't driving fast like I do sometimes. (no one really believes that). I was taking a unique on ramp, it has a slight curve. Anyways, I was driving in the lower part on the left, not in the actual lane, just like I normally do going about 45-50mph (Ive taken this ramp at about 90 before). It had been raining for most the day, so I coulda hit a wet spot, but I think it was some type of oil, b/c oil rises to the surface when it rains. So my rear end slid out from under me a little and felt like the car raised up, so I turned the wheel to the left a little more, causing me to scrape up against the guard rail on the left. ( I had just raised my car up about 2 inches right before I left too). Then I turned the wheel to the right, and I over corrected and sent my car sliding towards the guard rail on the right. Slid right into the beginning of a guardrail and messed up fender rear quarter panel, and my door real bad. Window smashed out and cut my steering wheel a bit. I got lucky and didnt have a scratch. Rear wheel got bent in at the top as well, thats why it totaled.
I was really pissed b/c this past weekend I was supposed to pick up some parts, and trade some parts for other members, and I feel like I let them down. Nothing I can do tho, **** happens. and it sucks my celica days had to end like this.
Hey welcome man! Saw your thread in the newbie section and your celica looks great so far! For now I would definitely focus on the other parts later and fix it up so that it's in good condition for you to drive! I usually drove around Rockville Pike (and every other place in MD too haha) so hopefully when I come back we can meet up as well! We have a lot of great people in the MD/VA/DC area! If you happen to see a silver celica with bronze 18" 5zigen rims and a small black wing on it, that's mine:gap: My father or mother are driving it at the moment.New Celica owner from DMV, sup guys!
well brandon(ddragon) usually takes care of organizing all the meets, but he up and left to china! so we're kinda in the balance for now, till he gets backSince we're talking about seeing each others' cars, when's the next meet up?
:chuckles: Now you guys gotta get to it!:gap: When I come back I'll put something together so no worries!well brandon(ddragon) usually takes care of organizing all the meets, but he up and left to china! so we're kinda in the balance for now, till he gets back

Front and rear lip went to Mike, he said he might sell something to you when you get back lol.Aw jeez Frank I'm sorry about this happening to you man. I just can't believe it happened:sadpace:. I definitely feel your pain man. How much did the guy buy it for from you? You sold him the molly rear and other parts too?
Ill let him know. lolI agree, I want a blue 350...or a blue g37...either one will do!
