Well guys, I was on my way home from work Friday night and apparently I hit some black ice and wrecked my car. I don't remember anything that happened about ten minutes prior to about 12 hours after. They tell me I slid off the right side of the road, spun 180 degrees, and backed it into a telephone pole airborne at about 40-45 mph. I got a helicopter ride, a night in the hospital, a killer headache and a head full of stitches out of the deal. Plus I have to decide what to do with my car now. I might try to post some pictures later if I can figure out how.

Hey, You are alive! To hell with the car. Just happy that you are able to sit down and tell us about it!

Glad you are ok...

Cars can be replaced. I know it is hard not to think about the car...someone was looking out for you. Hope you fully recover quick.

Glad you're OK. Now you can take that nice insurance check and "upgrade" from the '94 to a '97.

That's nuts! If all you got was a few stitches in your head you're a lucky man. I have to see some pictures of this carnage. Glad you're ok.

Thanks guys. The car is going from the tow yard to a relatives house tomorrow so I'll be able to get some decent pics up soon. I'll probably end up trying to sell it but I'm not sure yet.

Well you need to host the pics somewhere. I personally use www.photobucket.com

Its free. Once you have the photos uploaded you can link to the photos.

Good to hear your doing well. Strange thing is after seeing the pics, it almost looks like there is NO damage to the quarters or roofline at all, just damage to the trunk floor and lid. Heck, the tailights aren't even broken, lol.. Almost looks fixable. Of course I can't see underneath to look at what all got shoved forward. Did it get to the rearend at all?
