Last night, I was on a country road driving out to a HS members house to help them pull his engine. Anyways I was going down this road, on my cell phone getting directions (aka I didn't know the area too well). It was really dark out, and slightly snowing so visibility was horrible. I was defently going under the 50mph speed limit (but I am not sure of my exact speed). I am driving, then basicly at the last second, this curve in the road appears. At this point, I basicly go to first instincts. I push the brakes and slide through the rest of the pavement (not much) into and then over the ditch on the other side where I stoped. I get out check for damage, my bumper is hanging off, my front lip is ripped off, but other then that it "appears" on the outside that my car is kinda ok. I pop the hood and start the car, there is a horrible vibrations coming from the bumper rattling against the fender. I look under the hood, the bottom part of the raditor support is bent in. My freind calls up and asks what happened (I was on the phone with him while it happened, but when I saw the curve, I just let go of the phone and did what I had to do) They came over and helped me check for damages. At this point, I was not too worried about the damages. Once they show up with flashlights, I notice that the driver side frame rail started to buckle, and they effects went to the lower engine mount. I then go back to where I first went in. I then see the remains of a bunch of other plastic peices. I start looking at them and realize that most were not from me. Folling my tracks, right at the upslope there are two metal street sign poles. One is about 4 feet tall and all mangeled, the other one is pretty much sheered off 9inches or so out of the ground. My tracks went right over the short ones and missed the tall one by inches. These poles used to hold up a big signed that warned of the curve. If that was there, I would have seen the curve from far away. For the drive test. Really there is very little diffrence. Steering wheel is a few degrees off center, but other then that, it feels normal. The problem is, I want to get rid of this car, and now, its going to be impossible with that damage. I am going to call insurance and the county road commission. My hopes are, insurance company finds me less then half my fault (I have limited collision. More then 50% my fault, I don't get paid). Since there are 163k on the chassis, they will for sure total it. I will buy it back for the 500, get my engine, teins, seats, cluster, wheels, vafc, suspension bars, top, and lights, then get rid of the car. Problem is, I am tied up with school for the next 7 weeks so who knows. snowing and I don't see the curve. I go through the curve, hit a ditch then end up in the clearing on the other side. Frame damage, but car drives kinda ok. After further inspection, notice that a sign was once there warning of the curve, but some else takes it out.
