Icon9 So this is what happened to my 3rd gen today..

So my mom comes into my room and asks me where my car was. I tell her its in the drive way but then I remembered I left the windows down and thought someone might of stolen it. I go check the ditch right across the road from my house and guess what I saw.. My baby down there :(

So... How the hell did it get down there?? DID, someone steal it and put it in a ditch? Or did your ebrake fail or something??

wtf, how much damage did that cause? and im guessing you have done this before taking into account you decided to look in the ditch first?

Don't feel bad. My e-brake wasn't tight enough once and my 2004 gto rolled all the way down the driveway and hit an oak tree. The whole rear end was smashed. A lesson well learned I guess.

Re: So this is what happened to my 3rd gen today..

Well im not exactly sure how it happened but i parked my car in my driveway which is on a hill. I put the car in neutral to bend over the passenger seat to pick something up while i was still sitting in the car i did that so the stick wouldnt be digging into my stomach. When i left i looked back at the car to see if it was moving or anything but it was fine so i went walked into my house. I didnt hear any noise at all and im sure i would of heard it if it was loud because my window was open and its right next to the driveway. I'm so lucky it has very little damage! just some scratches on the paint and on the muffler! :D

I thought us Asians were bad at driving and parking but this is by far the worst parking I've seen in years sir!!!

Dude I think your car was pretty lucky in the fact it turned sideways and stopped rolling form the looks of it in the pics the hill and the road are pretty steep. I hope its still just minor damage and nothing major that may turn up in a couple of days.

Glad your car is fine. Get chocks!
