    Apparently in NZ, there is some statistic that says all male drivers will have a crash before they turn 21. I'm yet to crash, but still have many nervous years ahead...

    In my opinion to crash you have to do damage to your car. For instance, this one time in my Fiat Uno I backed over a log and into a drain. But I simply drove out and the car was fine. I didn't consider this a crash...

    Last year I successfully managed to uproot a tree with a tractor.

    Accident on my pass plus lesson. In turn right lane and got hit, now to see if I actually get anything from it. Currently can't find any parts to fix it as the suspension is bashed in and I need a new wheel. My no claims for my 1st year of having the car is or was due in Jan. But I really adapted well to that car and I want to keep it, but if there are no replacement parts, what can I do? I'm annoyed with the guy who hit me since he had back-ended someone 3 days previously and had only just got his car back that day, and he's maybe knocked my car out of action after it had survived 10 years without a crash.

    I don't see a problem with the car. If it drives, has a working sound system (radio at least) and A/C I'm satisfied.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    It doesn't have A/C and the speakers are...well...bass-less. But it worked so I didn't complain.

    I would take a Flintstonesque drop-the-floorboards-and-run kind of car at the moment. So crap not having a car that I can learn to drive in. (I know I can take lessons but you always can practice more with another car)
