I'll start things off with my worst. Before I get into this I know it was a dumbass move so don't both reiterating that.
Me and a buddy where out cruising down some old country roads at about 12 am, speeding obviously, I was going up a hill at 80 to 90 MPH and had just made it the top when I realized the road had ENDED, except it didn't. It dropped off so sharply that the front wheels actually left the ground, sorta hard on a heavy a$$ car. Later that night (or morning however you look at it) I was coming up to a stop sign and I thought ok I haven't seen a car in 3 hours what could it hurt to blow one sign, WRONG. The intersection I decided to fly through was a 3 way with the straight lane ENDING, needless to say at 85 I ended up jumping over the ditch and into some farmers field. The car showed no visible damage but I shoved the air dam up behind the radiator and bent the metal support that cradles the radiator crushing the bottom left corner of the radiator as well. After pulling 8 lbs of mud out from under the radiator I did manage to get the car home. Weird thing was the radiator never leaked a drop and no one ever noticed the damage. BTW I was 17 living with my parents at the time, I never said jack s**t about it cuz my dad would have whooped my ass. Moral of the story don't be stupid. The car was in a fender bender a year later and the insurance company fixed all the damage from this incident as well as the damage from the accident but probably not with out a lil' head scratchin' like how the @^#$ did that get crammed up there. Twisted Evil
O well live and learn.

EDIT: Also after the hill thing we both nearly s**t our pants, it was like one of those OOOOOOOOO s**t *thump when the car hit the ground* moments Razz

Body Control Module, controls all non engine and transmission electrical systems in the car. No, when the BCM goes, the car wont start. The BCM and PCM must communicate with each other for the car to work

$4000 worth of hail damage.

The car is now lucky if it gets to the car wash once every four months. I take care of it mechanically, but I'm not really worried about how dirty it looks anymore (especially since I take my dog for rides nearly every day and there is hair all over the inside).

I have the supplies to repaint the car - I just don't have the time to do it.

I ran into the back of a car at a stoplight 3 years ago.

Frank you need to step to it! I wash mine once or twice a week and wax it once a month or so. Laughing

And you would admit to this why? Laughing

On topic, worst thing that happened to me was the my car hates me repair extravaganza. I was driving from Nashville to Chicago and my LIM gasket quit on me, my power steering line blew out, a transmission cooler line blew out and my thermostat stuck open. If that wasn't enough, when I took it to the dealer they told me my oil pan gasket was leaking and my UIM had melted. Ended up spending 1800+ bucks to get everything but the oil pan gasket replaced.

I may be exaggerating a little, no hail just general crap from the road. The paint is chipped and pitted. (Shot with 12 ga #12 shot from 25 yds)Laughing
