Dang it; I hate road debris.

As I was driving my friend back from the airport in Phoenix, a piece of road debris flew up from the left and struck my car right over the right headlight, leaving a horrible dent about 2" long.
Looks like the light housing is even cracked, and the front bumper is even scratched a bit; dang was I ticked, but what can you expect when you're doing 70mph...

I will try to post some pics later this morning. Oh well; all the better reason to get an EMphase kit later this spring, maybe a boser hood...


Gonna get some sleep. Going on a road trip tomorrow...

I'm sorry to hear that. Driving down 83 yesterday a 2x4 came off of the back of a truck. A big rig in front of me hit it and shattered it into a dozen 5" long pieces of wood. I was going about 85 with the 65 series snow tires on so my handling was crap. Luckily I avoided all the flying wood and make it out safe...some cars weren't as lucky...

WOW, I had something interesting like the swurve happen too!

I was going north in DE on route 13. I was passing this truck that was carrying large boxes, some with appliances in em. Well a combo of the high winds and a nice road bump made his load fly out putting two large boxes right in my lane. Luckily there was enough shoulder left for me to pull a Mario Andretti and the van that was tail gating me BLASTED through it (it was the one with some type of appliance inside)! It ended up being a nice couple car accident and with me running late for work already I didn't stick around to see what happened.

Praise the VW gods for beautiful handling from stock!!!!

Maybe an excuse for some body mods?
