heh.. well today it all started when i woke up and knew what i had to do for today.. i headed to the dealership to order a hood release cable for a g2 integra from a 90-93 integra so i could use it on my jdm front end.
so i went to the acura dealership in stevens creek to order it and find out its coming monday morning. so i payed and started heading for home. as i was heading home i was about 4 miles from home and i was on the second lane closest to the right. i was going about 70 mph and all of a sudden a van from the lane left of me cuts me off.. well not really cut me off more like almost hit my front so my first reaction is to switch really quick to the farthest lane to the right.. and its end up being an exit ramp off the freeway.. so i slowly press down on the brakes and the ramp turns in then all of a sudden my car spins out.. spins like 3 times and my car stalls and i end up spinning out on the ramp still and when i stop im facing traffic..
i am so lucky today and i just want to thank the big man up there for keeping me safe. my g3 thanks for keeping me safe too. i was so lucky not to hit anything and i was lucky there was no traffic behind me. im just a bit shooken up right now but i am so grateful that nothing happened to mee or my car..
you guys.. im just glad me and my car are still in tact.. i wasn't sure where to post this.. i just had to write this to get out of my system.. heh..

UPDATE: May 2, 2005
Damn I've been getting so lucky. Well I hit a pothole on the freeway going 75 today and my car lost control. I fishtailed across the freeway and finally powerslided to a complete stop going sideways almost hitting the divider/curb of an exit..No damage to the car whatsoever. Someones watching me up there. I'm a little shaken up. But other then that I'm okay once again.

Damn, thats great that nothing happend to eather of you. I got in an accident just recently, not to much of a big deal, but i gotta tell you im kinda paranoid. Im driving my g1 while the insurance companies conform that im not at fault, but damn is it scarry. I bet your going to be scanning traffic alot now,and your going to keep alot of distance from other cars so that you have breathing room just incase some dumbf**k does it again. but glad your ok

Humors me in a odd way how so many people on highways and etc just pull to a new lane. That happened to a friend of mine (in his truck) There was a van side by side with us who got just a tire length ahead of him and just cut over (this was only 2 lanes) and we almost has to run off the highway into the grass because of that a$$h*le.

People are so retarded, I wish I was a cop sometimes, but then again no I dont lol.

Glad youre both ok. I know first hand what a spinout due to traffic related idiots is like so I know where youre comin from ..

And happened to me coming home from work yesterday, no spin out though, but i started swervin left to right it sucked. And you wouldnt believe it, but it was because a van didnt signal on the highway and just changed lanes about a yard away from my car then started braking since he almost hit the car in front of me.

I thank God for every minute of my life even though I dont think this world is the greatest... I'm glad you're safe and I hope everyone stays safe. Watch out for those stupid drivers who only drive to get places, not for the joy or love of it. Peace to the Gods.

I almost lost my integ today again when I spun out on the freeway when I hit a pothole. Sigh.. I've been getting into a lot of these close calls with the integra. I thought i was gonna lose her again today.
