    Ruined an unblemished record today - had my 1st accident and the Coupe is dead...

    Killed the coupe this morning, it's currently hanging upside down over an 8ft ditch, wedged between a tree and a grass bank

    Doing approx 30mph going round a gentle righthand bend, and the rear hit a patch of wet and twitched out to the left, hitting the bank which spun me the opposite way thru 360 heading toward an open gateway flanked by a ditch! Managed to get hold of it and the car on the straight again but as I then braked to stop, I skidded on loose gravel and ended up putting the car up on the verge, clipped a telegraph pole support cable, which flipped the car arse over nose and I ended up hanging upside down!!

    Thankfully, only me in it at the time, and I'm perfectly ok, a very lucky boy it seems! Got a bit of stiffness in my neck/shoulder/back but otherwise ok. Two hours laying perfectly flat on my back in A&E as they put me under obs and checked out a bump on my head though wasn't too amusing

    Sadly I won't make PV either which is annoying to say the least!!

    Ah well, hopefully I'll be able to get a payout sufficient enough to replace the car and get myself back on the road again soon.

    Now, off to the Helpdesk as I will need to change the numberplate for my Billing standpass


    Pics of the wreck coming soon too, after all we all love pics, even of dead Astra's!
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.
