Whats the worst thing that has ever happened to your prelude

Well post some of your mishaps with your prelude-- such as accidents, dumb ideas ya'll attempted. (I didnt check if this was topic that was posted but let us here some stories.)
Here are some of mine...

Well this summer was a wild one, and I just got my prelude may of 2008. One sunday in the summer I had soccer game in the evening and the the problem was i was hungover all day and was sleeping all day so when i woke up got in the car and was backing out of my driveway to go to the game my dads truck was parked on the road half way blocking the driveway, and i clipped his license plate bracket and scratched my rear bumper about 300$ fixing. Another little mishap was pulling into a parking spot and those concrete parking blocks so when your tire hits it your car wont go further than supposed to, anyways a pin that holds the concrete blocks into the ground was sticking up a little and didnt see it until i heard it crack the bottom of my bumper, i did not fix that yet bc of future mods.

Re: Whats the worst thing that has ever happened to your prelude

About a month after getting my car last year, me and some friends decided to drive down to kings dominion. We were about three exits away, when all of a sudden my front right tired "DETREADED"(like a semi without deflatting, just the center rubber came off) when this happened it jerked my car from the left lane of traffic all the way over into the right shoulder, across four lanes of traffic, doing about 85mph, on I95 south VA. it destroyed all the stuff inside the fender well, ripped my bumper half way off, and spat my resonator box with the fender lining into the traffic behind me. That was the second close call to death within that two month period. the first one was the reason i got the prelube.

Re: Whats the worst thing that has ever happened to your prelude

Not even ten days in to having mine....
I was pulling in to a space at work and for some reason they thought it would be a good idea to put a cinder block in a parking space (near the front of the space). Being that my car is pretty low and other cars around I did not see it. So as I pull in I hear a crunch and I froze. I get out to see what happened and there is a cinder block under part of my bumper it has pushed up one side of my bumper. I pretty much cried!!! and the worst part was backing up and hearing the sounds again...

Re: Whats the worst thing that has ever happened to your prelude

an idea just popped into my head while looking at those photos, how nice would it be if you could work on your car if it were upside down, what im saying is it would be very easy working the exhaust and whatever else is down underneath the car.

always back into spots.. this is what i've learned after seeing my freinds do similar things to their cars.

for me it has been a bad 4 months or so.

1. drunk guy rear ends me with no insurance-- and mine is ****ing me
2. street sweeper side swipes my car and doesn't tell me -- i had to drive around the next day to find him with my blue paint on his bumper..since the cops apparently looked at all of the city's sweepers and none had my paint on them. Uber FAIL on the city of moscow and the Cops!
3. drove through a deceptive puddle.. fubar my engine.. shortly after my engine blows
4. tow truck driver ****s up my front bumper and fender getting it off the truck and they want to give me 100 bucks! lol

but now i'm having fun with my engine bay remodel/cleaning and swap
and i can't compete with the bad day 98BB6SH had.. sorry about that man

Re: Whats the worst thing that has ever happened to your prelude

Worst thing I've done to my Prelude was downshift from 3rd to 2nd going about 100mph so I replaced the motor right before NPM 05, then I did it again about 2 years later and bent 10 out of 16 valves. This time I just took it to a shop and had them replaced. I could've boughten another motor for the price I paid having it fixed

Re: Whats the worst thing that has ever happened to your prelude

I was driving into work at 7 a.m. I hit the last straight away before the shop so I decided to punch it (same thing every morning). I hit about 100, got my rush left off the gas and a f***ing waste management garbage truck coming out of the trailor park decided to run the stop sign. He railed me hard and I lost control of the car. It jumped a ditch, hit a pool, then an oil tank, next an electrical meter and finally stopped when the nose of the car was in some womans bedroom. Then just to throw salt on the wound, I quickly opened the door and started to lean out when the bounced off the deck, hit my head and gave me a concussion. After all that the kick in the nuts happens when the woman walks over to my car and proceeds to scream at me for waking her up at 7 in the morning (remember, trailor park). It was'nt till my boss WALKED over to me that I realized how f***ing close to work I actually was.

I've got to say, this is almost as funny as it is just fricken horrible horrible luck... God bless you : D, yours is the best story on the page so far...


My Prelude: 1994 Si with h22a replacing the h23

My story: Driving down the canyon roads here in southern california when my master cylinder decides to take a crap on me... Hairpin turn + no brakes= disaster right? Wrong! Saved it with the E-brake and a hella nice drift/slide. Feeling pretty good after that save, start driving home slowly... LITERALLY 1 minute and 30 seconds later, get rear ended by an uninsured motorist in a Raised Nissan truck, My car is so low that the truck went right over my bumper and took my rear windshield out, amazingly that was the ONLY damage to the entire car... (2nd week of owning car)

Story #2: I let my retard dumbass friend borrow my prelude for a weekend, he tried to u-turn in a dirt turnoff, hit a rock and took out my oil pan... Great guy... (3rd month of owning car)

Story #3: Got pulled over one fine Saturday night for "suspicious driving" cop told me to stand by the side of the car with my hands on my head as he took a peak under my hood for "stolen parts"... Wouldn't listen to me when I said that he had to unlock the hood pins and ended up cracking my CF hood trying to pry the bitch open... Naturally the city refused to pay for repairs...
(3rd month of owning car)

Story #4: Was pulling into a parking garage at the mall, there was a long line of cars and I had to stop right after going over the 1 way-****es they have to prevent you from exiting that way... I was on a slight incline so when I put the car back in gear to move when the car ahead of me moved, I rolled backwards a few inches and the ****es took out my back tires... (Incidentally 1 week old Yokohama Advents...) -- (6th month of owning car)

Thats what I got! I like to think I'm pretty fricken unlucky...

#1 let my mom drive it and she was backing up while turning around on our driveway (ps: we own 14 archers and the drive way is 1/2 mile long) and my front bumper got hooked on something pulling it off and breaking my side marker lights.

#2 backing out of a parking spot in a church parking lot and i hit one of those yellow poles that are filled with concrete. S.O.B came out of no where & why was it in the middle of the lot? WTF... it cracked the paint on my rear bumper...

#3 i hit a water puddle while i was doing a scratch off.. didnt win nothing. and hydro locked my engine. snaped a rod and put a hole in the block...
