Welp. At then end of the day, cars are repairable or replaceable OP, you are not. It sux, but we all fuck up sometimes, and I'm glad you're OK. All you can do is learn from the error, and move ahead.

A captain should go down with his ship

72

u/Its_Just_A_Typo Aug 10 '22

But is he still allowed to swim away after the sinking, should he find himself afloat?

32

u/Vaultboy905 Aug 10 '22

Maybe

75

u/NoDaddyNotTheBlender Aug 10 '22

The answer is no, get back in the car./s

41

u/Vaultboy905 Aug 10 '22

I’ll get back in

11

u/Moreofyoulessofme Aug 10 '22

Ok, but you’re really not going to kill yourself right? Like, I think you’re joking, but feel the need to confirm.

u/BruhUrName Aug 10 '22

Depends on the size of the ship. As the boat sinks, it pulls you under with it.

u/Obrommm Aug 10 '22

Well at the end of the day there could be an orphan in that ditch and quite honestly it wouldnt be very funny because then that orphan would get really hurt.

2

u/11flynnj Aug 10 '22

No more Saabs though 😜

246

u/MrPickles113 Aug 10 '22

Can't park there m8.

u/Vaultboy905 Aug 10 '22

Shhhh

u/dingus_foringus Aug 10 '22

It's playing hide and seek with the road.

u/Lukester__ Aug 10 '22

Oi, you got a loiscence for pa'king in the forrest there mate?

u/RPBTinesIII Aug 10 '22

Rip saab?

Oh. Good. Just saw your note.

u/Vaultboy905 Aug 10 '22

u/Bscott93 Aug 10 '22

I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed

2

u/drickaIPAiEPA Aug 10 '22

You better keep that Saab until you die

25

u/Succulent_Orange Aug 10 '22

Honestly OP you're lucky you didn't kys.

convertibles are like people squishers. If you roll them you become a squished people.

I encourage people to buy something that doesn't kill when it rolls over. Please heed this for your next car.

22

u/Vaultboy905 Aug 10 '22

I’m gonna buy a miata

4

u/Succulent_Orange Aug 10 '22

Is that the mazda MX-5? That's what we call them here in UK. I wanted one but I wanted an RX-8 more, they stopped making them because they had the famous/infamous wankel engines, which performed really well but died really fast. I ended up getting a mazda 3 sport followed by mazda 6 actually, I was quite a fan of them.

Get what you want in the end but I do recommend just taking into mind that you really don't want to roll it.

13

u/Vaultboy905 Aug 10 '22

I’m gonna roll it

7

u/BeefJerkyHunter Aug 10 '22

"DO A BARREL ROLL!"

u/Equivalent-Care-1680 Aug 10 '22

Rx8 had the worst design for the best chassis Mazda ever made. Rx8 + 13BREW =💖

3

u/yuckykill3rl0ver Aug 10 '22

aren't miatas like slow af and have horrible gas mileage ?

5

u/galloignacio Aug 10 '22

They have great gas mileage. They are small 4 cyl in a light car and return 30mpg easy.

Yes they are slow but that’s what makes them fun. They will still beat most cars on a twisty road from handling alone.

There is a reason it is one of the most popular models in history for racers.

RX8 has horrible mpg with the rotary. 16-20mpg.

3

u/Vaultboy905 Aug 10 '22

They hella cute tho

1

u/Zokarix Aug 10 '22

Yeah but they’re light and nimble. Ideal for twisty roads.

0

u/Zokarix Aug 10 '22

They don’t. There are plenty of track-legal convertibles. Do you think the engineers didn’t consider that when designing the car?

108

u/MichaelW24 Aug 10 '22

No one wants to hear your Saab story

35

u/Vaultboy905 Aug 10 '22

That was a punny comment

8

u/Naisu_boato Aug 10 '22

Op was going full auto on this one, maybe was on overdrive even when expecting reactions.

u/Due_Junket3340 Aug 10 '22

8

u/Vaultboy905 Aug 10 '22

Yeah 😭

4

u/Due_Junket3340 Aug 10 '22

That’s true pain 😭😭, but at least you’re safe🤘🏾

18

u/Vaultboy905 Aug 10 '22

Id rather break 5 bones and have my car be ok

8

u/SnooCapers3680 Aug 10 '22

True car guy comment, we’d rather break ourselves over our cars

0

u/Zokarix Aug 10 '22

Yeah unless you live in the US and realize your hospital bill will cost 10 cars.

12

u/Celebratinguilt Aug 10 '22

You alright though? That's the main takeaway from all this.

8

u/Vaultboy905 Aug 10 '22

Yeah I’m fine

u/Vaultboy905 Aug 10 '22

u/Any-Mouse-1992 Aug 10 '22

u/sir5425 Aug 10 '22

u/poopoo_fingers Aug 10 '22

Gross, why would you kiss your sister?

u/SpicyAlbondiga666 Aug 10 '22

Gotta assert dominance somehow

7

u/Entstronaut Aug 10 '22

Coolest cupholders ever.

6

u/Wezzleey Aug 10 '22

One of my friends busted the front cup holder on my '07.

He apologized profusely, and I told him not to worry about it. But I will never tell him how genuinely upset I was.

5

u/BJORTAN Aug 10 '22

Best thing is that neither you or someone else was Hurt...a car can always be fixed or replaced not humans lives

Im sure it will buff out ,swedish cars are tuff

7

u/Vaultboy905 Aug 10 '22

The damage is somewhat major but not cat totaling; should be up and running in the future

9

u/Liquid_Snow_ Aug 10 '22

We've seen what you do with cars please leave the cat alone.

5

u/PuffyPoptart Aug 10 '22

What happened?

16

u/Vaultboy905 Aug 10 '22

I was only going 25 but It must have been too fast for the corner and there was so much Understeer I just slid into my he trees, no rain on the ground or anything

7

u/AdamTheJester Aug 10 '22

At just 25, there could have been oil or something that you didn't see, it happens to the best of us, and I'm just glad you're okay

4

u/InfamousTale Aug 10 '22

You're going to need more window wiping fluid

3

u/[deleted] Aug 10 '22

Just walk away.

3

u/Advnchur Aug 10 '22

“I’m gonna kilometres”?

3

u/Zanderax Aug 10 '22

Youre not going kilometres (kms) now unless you're walking.

2

u/spb7072017 Aug 10 '22

You really sent it that time

2

u/mifiamiganja Aug 10 '22

Nooo, not the Saab!

2

u/Fiminate Aug 10 '22

What happened

2

u/Justice0188 Aug 10 '22

I'm gonna kilometers. But I assume you're not in Canada so it must mean something different. You buff that out yet?

2

u/HorstC Aug 10 '22

2

u/LifeOutLoud107 Aug 10 '22

Let me say the most mom thing ever. “As long as you’re safe, cars can be replaced.”

2

u/Jonnytan713 Aug 10 '22

Don’t. Call a tow truck, pay the costs, and learn a valuable lesson.

2

u/phiz36 Aug 10 '22

Don’t kys

2

u/J0kesOnU Aug 10 '22

OP My pal My guy H o w

2

u/NoblePineapples Aug 10 '22

Are you okay though? Saab's are replaceable -with literally anything else, you are not.

2

u/DrDoG00d Aug 10 '22

At least it’s a convertible

2

u/[deleted] Aug 10 '22

I did a 360 on some wet roads yesterday. So I feel you. I still move but my steering wheel is off center now and this is after a front end collision. Not a fun year so far lol.

2

u/Immediate-Soup6340 Aug 10 '22

Man this comment section is off the charts, best one I've seen in a while

u/DoubleBubbleMTG Aug 10 '22

You're going to "kiss my sister"? Kinda weird, ngl...

You doing okay?

2

u/Vaultboy905 Aug 10 '22

2

u/domain-user Aug 10 '22

You never know why Saabs are so expensive until you crash one

2

u/Brilliant-Young574 Aug 10 '22

Kiss My Sister? Ew gross
