Default Crashed today!! pics

I was taking a friend out for a quick spin in the miata yesterday when the inevitable happened. Buttseks+sandy roads=tree!! We where going around a 90' turn and the *** end came right around. I had the car just about straitened out and !!boom!! hit the toughest little tree ever. The only tree for 50 yards!! This thing is about as big around as a beer can but it f'd my car up!! After we figured out the car still ran, I hauled *** back to the house and got my bikes. We went back to the crash site and noticed there was sand all over the road. Sooooo does anybody have some spare stuff I might need?? Here are some pics of my sorrow.

You shoulda looked where you wanted the car to go, not at what you didn't want to hit.

That's not so bad. I bet you could pull that out and replace the parts in an afternoon.

open hood and take off bumper, re-take pictures. That'll tell us the extent of the damage. And all the parts you'll need. Quite possibly totaled if you bent the frame at all.

The Egyptian's would put a hole in huge blocks of marble, put a stick in the hole, and fill it with water. The resulting expansion of the wood would crack the marble in half. Wood's powerful ****, as evidenced by your kaput car.

I'm surprised that you admitted you were buttsexing and didn't swerve to miss a squirrel or something. Have to give you props for owning up.

"Son, your ego is writing checks your body can't cash!"

Seriously, sorry to hear about the mishap. I nearly did a similar thing in a buddy's Mustang 20 some-odd years ago right after a couple of upgrades. However it wasn't a sapling, but a 3-ft diameter oak we nearly ate...

Yowch. As an insurance claim, that one will probably be [/car].

Candidate for a tube-frame frontend?

Radiator support is gone, and the rad is probably bent if not broken as well.

Its not an easy fix.

As been said, pull the hood off and the bumper to assess what it actually damaged.
