I need my "Stupid" sign. - Equiraptor's Journal
I need my "Stupid" sign.
I killed my car this morning.

Well, I didn't really kill it... I mean, it still runs. But the idle is unstable, it seems to be making some other noises, and the bottom part of the intercooler seems to have been pushed back a bit.

I entered a driveway too fast. I was turning left into the drive, and there was oncoming traffic. I knew my car could make it, so I hit the gas pedal and turned... And heard a rather loud *thunk* as I went up into the drive. I'm kicking myself.

Dan laughed at me, when I took it in. John said he thinks he knows what I've hurt, just from hearing me drive up. It sounds like they've dealt with this before, so it shouldn't be too big a deal... I hope. My poor, poor car.

Then again, they said another supercharged Miata blew up this weekend... At least my car still runs. :/

Yeah. They actually told me whose while I was there, but I didn't want to reveal it on LJ until after he did.

Glad to see you doing better. There have been lots of treatments/fixings needed in the past week or so, for human, animal, and machine. It looks like the living things are improving (you, my grandfather, a friend's step dad, and Boomer), while the machine... Well, machines can either be fixed or replaced, so long as there's money. :)

You're a bad car mommy :P So it was the pressure on the intercooler or something else that caused the pipe to snap off, or was there actual physical contact between metal and concrete / driveway material?
