Look like you came very close to going head on with that telephone pole on the right, just think of it like this you walk away from something that really could of ruined your life. A car can be replaced your life cannot. Glad to hear you came out alright and good luck with the rebuilt.

true that... when the roads get icy i hear many people skid and die! and some get even more unlucky, ie: i heard of a guy nearby who slipped on some dry ice and is now paralyzed from the neck down!

i know this doesn't help and i wouldn't expect it to, if i were in your situation i would also be upset.

I believe theres a living vibration and love within cars, you treat them right and they treat you right.

a good way to look at it though, is you got into a wreck that could have really made things bad for you, but your car loves you so much his mercy said "No! I'm not gonna let you go! I'm not gonna let you slip away, you don't have to afraid....his mercy said no! pain will never have control....life and death stood face to face, darkness tried to steal your heart away....But your Mustang said NO!"

basically your car took all the hurt so you don't have to, he wouldn't want you to be upset right now, you can fix him!

For God loved the world so much, he sent his one and only car so that whoever drives him shall not be a victim of GM or ricers, but have eternal coolness.

Amen.

You never ever, ever ever drive with RD's on wet roads bro, its like driving on black ice. Sorry you had to learn that the hard way. I hope it all works out in the end, just keep your head up.

It was simply an observation of the video, not an accusation.

I meant you spun out in the rain, softly ending up off road, not totaled, no injuries, no head on into a truck, etc ...
... only that you'll see many worse days in life so there's no need telling yourself this was a "worse day".

Sorry about the accident, glad your okay. Your video brought back memories of when I spun out in my Mustang Bullitt. My car was laid up for over 2 months.

Ditto on glad you're ok. Could have been a lot worse. Tough lesson...

You have similar damage to what happened to me when I ran head first into a truck that decided to run a stop sign, thank god we were both going slow. My accident was a total of $9000 worth of repairs.

Don't feel bad, my friend did the exact same thing with his month old GTO; had slicks and got caught in the rain on his way home, except he was on the freeway and took it into a concrete wall going sixty, totaling the car.
I know everyone is saying look on the bright side at least you're ok, but that's not going to make you feel any better because our cars to us are extensions of ourselves. Just try and think about a plan to get it fixed or sold. I'm guessing insurance isn't going to cover it?

damn 9k?? are mustangs more expensive to repair then regular cars or would any car with that damage be around 9k to repair?

i guess it sucks for me, cuz mine would proly be totalled, kinda sucks to think it only takes one jerk to run into me and i could lose my car and all the money i spent in upgrades!!! ( i can't afford to fix it if its totalled!)

honestly i don't blame u one bit for being upset OP, i got a friend whose dad who shot himself after he lost his bel air in a wreck (which he had owned for YEARS), and i would probably do the same thing if i ever lost this car. some people say life is priceless, but for people like us, its cars that make life worth living.

I can't imagine wrecking that beauty and the pain you're feeling.

Sorry to see that this happened...but at least you're ok, and it's fixable! Use this opportunity to get an aftermarket hood and front bumper cover like Pascal said.

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

I saw the video too. That's scary how the rear end just kept going on a subtle turn of the wheel but sometimes you just can't tell if there's an ice patch on the road.

Frankly I think you were very lucky. Could have been worse but that doesn't lessen the pain your in now. Get full coverage insurance for next time. Good luck on the repair.

No ice, but we did get tons of rain. Sucks to see those pics. That looks a lot like my car. I've always been worried about hydroplaning in my car too and this doesn't make me feel any better. I'm running NT555s year round which do pretty well in the wet. Hopefully we DON'T get ice. The other morning, what was it, Thursday morning? They were talking about freezing rain in the morning commute, I turned off my alarm and went back to sleep. To hell with that. I'll work from home whenever it's going to even be slightly icy!

What did RPD ticket you for? Not that it surprises me. I assume they see a nice Mustang and just assume you were driving like a jackass. You have video evidence to dispute anything they say though. I don't think anything would **** me off more than wrecking my car because of a complete accident, by myself, and still getting a ticket.

When I was in high school, I was involved in an accident. A ticket was issued since I was at fault regardless of conditions. Single car I might add. It's common practice to issue a citation for an accident. Regardless of conditions, speed, etc. the driver is deemed at fault. Crappy? Yes.

I don't believe a citation would hold up unless they can prove you did something illegal to cause the accident (eg, speeding, running red light, wreckless driving, etc). I know I'd fight anything else in court, for sure. The only wreck I've been in resulted in no tickets being issued, so I dunno. OP made it sound like they gave him multiple citations even. I'm sure they'd try to stick to a "driving unsafe for the conditions" type thing. The video may not show speed, but it doesn't LOOK like the driver is going overly fast, and I certainly didn't see any wreckless driving. I was just curious what they claimed though.
