Did the car get rear ended ?


GasExplodesYouKnow

That or they backed into a curb that was too high.


SunniYellowScarf

I once parked onto a curb too high. When I backed up, it took my whole bumper cover off. I had to sheepishly get out of my car, pick up my bumper cover, and put it in my back seat. I tried putting it back on myself but a local body shop did it for $150.


breakone9r

Hey, you too? I was a junior in high school. And our student parking lot was a large gravel lot with small timbers driven vertically into the ground, about 4 to 5 inches sticking above the ground, used to demarc the lot from the rest of the open field. Well, I eased into one and backed off. I thought I'd maybe hooked my license plate or slmething. Wrong. Embarrassingly wrong. Horribly wrong. I'd hooked the entire wheel well under one. Half a dozen of my peers watched me tear my bumper off. And it wasn't just the bumper. It was the entre corner of the car. This was what I drove, proudly, to school... Not this particular one, but same model and color. [All black 1989 Ford Probe](https://i.imgur.com/9RJpbfC.jpg) The bodywork split along the line where the lower quarter panel meets the upper, at the wheel well, and I, being a redneck Bama kid, definitely did some "Alabama Engineering" to hold the damn thing in place to drive the 20 miles from school back home later.. I was in so much trouble when I got home. I had a job, so I could afford gas and dates and stuff.. but until I got the deductible covered, I ~~want~~ *wasn't* going on ANY dates.


erroneousbosh

There used to be little parking space marker signs at a place I worked at, but since they were for the folk who'd worked in the building before our lot moved in we just ignored them. One day though I noticed that someone had pushed about half of them right into the ground, like they'd gone over and stamped them right down about 4" so the sign was touching the ground. A day or so later, I realised. It was me. I was doing it. At the time I drove a [Citroën GSA](https://citroencarclub.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/G-photo-3.jpg), which as you can kind of see in that pic has a nice high rear bumper. When the hydraulic suspension is up. When you reverse up to the kerb and park, the bumper overhangs a bit and misses the sign. During the course of the day, as the suspension leaks back and the car sinks, it gradually sits down on the sign and squashes it into the ground. I tended to try to stick to one spot where I'd pulled the sign out, after that.


HonorableChairman

This is amazing and I’m jealous you got to drive a GSA!


erroneousbosh

They're phenomenal. One of the last "clean sheet" cars, designed from scratch. Well, the GS more than the GSA, which was really an upgrade. You could absolutely rev the nuts off that aircooled flat-four, wiping the smiles off people's faces at the traffic lights "ahaha look at that funny old car, oh it's gone..."


shawster

Dude me and three friends were parked in a friend’s long driveway. Time to head out. Previous owners of the house installed a pole below car window height to protect mailbox from damage. As i turn out reversing it caught my wheel well. Yeah basically the whole front corner of the car came out. Next car, didn’t see what happened to me yet, they ride up it backwards, hooks their rear bumper, no way to get down without ripping a huge hole in it. The bumper was trashed anyway. Third person out was about to tire into it kind of like me but we stopped them. And for some reason this pole was put down there with furious passion, like they dug 6 feet down, dug a plug at the bottom, filled it with concrete, then a stainless steel pole. We finally ripped that shit out a few days later, no one has ever touched the mailbox. But it did cause like $1500 in damage to cars that day.

50iggles50

I had the same car. It my friends called it the “butt probe”.


breakone9r

Yeah, a couple of my friends in HS were a bit more vulgar about it! I think that's a fairly common nickname. You aren't the first one I've heard that also had it called that before. I spent a single semester at college, and one of the guys in the dorm, 2 or 3 rooms down from us, had a black 2nd gen. The sleeker one imo. My roomie called us both "the alien twins" because we both had probes....


Memingtime

Lmao this happened almost exactly to a friend of mine in a school parking lot like that. Pulled right up above the marker and then gunned it while backing up and destroyed his front bumper


bburns36

YES, this brought back memories of watching a woman in an Audi A3 do something like this a few years back. She pulled too far into a parking space, which had one of those triangular concrete dividers dead ahead. Got up and over it and then attempted backing up and gave it a front-bumper-cover-ectomy. Thank you for the laughs!


Dunerghost

Hmm, what would be worse, losing your bumper cover or [this](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJzC6JLEULk)

squeezeonein

I saw my elderly mom almost do that to her renault megane one day. i got out to check had she bursted a hole in the bottom of the radiator, thankfully it escaped. wasn't an issue in the 90s nissan sunnys, i used to travel the fields with them and got stuck on the bumper a few times. i think they should change the design on the meganes a bit.


ObnoxiousLittleCunt

Shouldn't drive high.


Remarkable-Egg-9823

Curb* while high


DaxDislikesYou

I did once see a Jetta in Ohio high center itself on a parking block. Still not sure how that happened.

Ohio.

Are you talking about the parking block or the word "ohio"?

That'll do it. You gotta wait for those curbs to sober up, man.


spotdishotdish

I've scraped exhaust pipes just backing down a driveway that was too steep.


Arch____Stanton

It doesn't look like the car has even seen the road. (Obviously it has but..)


trevorwobbles

Maybe it came off the transporter a little bit steep?


sockalicious

Now who's kink shaming?


imakenosensetopeople

I really want to know how this happened


CregChrist

Most likely backed into something that was too short to see in the mirror but tall enough to hit the tailpipe. A high curb, a short tree stump, a cinder block. I did the opposite of this years ago with a Jeep Cherokee. Driving around at night in the woods, tall grass was hiding a nice little stump. My front axle bumped into it and went over, the exhaust didn't fair that well. Ripped off from the manifold back and wrapped around the rear axle. It sounded like shit instantly. Oh, and it was super fun getting it off the rear axle too. Lots of interesting words were used that night.


subject_deleted

Not the same, but my old accord had the exhaust fall off while I was driving home from work. Just broke right off behind the cat. Pulled off into a parking lot and proceeded to try and manhandle the whole thing off despite the pipe being quite hot and not having any tools except for a 4' crow bar. Eventually got it off, folded it up, tossed it in the trunk and kept on driving.


Aluminautical

I had to cut a system off a new Fiat on the side of the highway. Carb (!) was set very, very rich on my *Strada*, and would kill catalytic converters every three weeks. So I carried a hacksaw just in case. Took two or three systems until the local dealer figured it out, all under warranty. And yeah, power was way down with a plugged-up cat.


patb2015

That’s expensive..


phlural

That’s a Fiat


The_Lost_Google_User

Warranty baby.


patb2015

Pretty amazing how they did not get it right at the factory.. cats are expensive.


i_hump_cats

One of my friends had that happen while on a hella busy road during the first snow fall of the season. Luckily Everything retaining after the manifold broke so it was fairly for us to yank it off and stick it in his car. The picture of us pulling it off is still my favourite picture of all time


AlphSaber

Once on a project we had just got done milling the asphalt and the manholes were sticking up about 2 inches. I saw a car straddle a manhole and never heard anything scrape, but the car left the last third of it's exhaust system lay on the manholes. It hadn't been connected for awhile since I picked it up bare handed and tossed it on the shoulder of the road.


subject_deleted

Ugh fuck. At least the weather was nice when I had to do it.


ActualWhiterabbit

One of my college parking lots used to be a [drive in theater](https://maps.app.goo.gl/WCS7udosYRy29WNs6) so it had all kinds of wavy parking spots. I drove over them fast because I was like the only person in that lot and I was dumb. The third time I did it, the bottom of my car scraped against the crest and tore off everything below mid car length.


11twofour

The internet is so fucking cool. You can just add a photo of your college parking lot to illustrate a random anecdote.


ActualWhiterabbit

That's a good spin. Honestly was sad I couldn't add a street view version. [This is the best I can do which is terrible](https://media.gettyimages.com/photos/man-walks-through-the-azusa-pacific-university-parking-lot-as-burn-picture-id463118895?s=612x612)


11twofour

That's hilariously wavy pavement


daedone

It's supposed to be, every car parks on a ramp with the front of the car facing slightly up toward the screen so you get a better view. A higher vehicle, like a truck to van a row or two ahead doesn't block it.


subject_deleted

Oof.


TyroneTeabaggington

I've heard this story so many times before.


KickMeElmo

I'm guessing you live in the salt belt. Mine rusted clean off when I was living in Michigan.


HoaxMcNolte_NM

Beats my cutting all the plastic panels off the underside of my Prius (after hitting something 6" tall and asphalt colored) east of Mojave CA in August, but barely. Not relavent but meh it reminded me of the hot tar sticking to my fat roll.


M1RR0R

I did that with my Subaru. Muffler fell off and got wedged in my bumper. Later the other one fell off at the point where it used to split to two pipes, I just tied it up and left it for a few months until I did a custom straight pipe cat back and saved 600 bucks skipping mufflers.


Skinnwork

I was pulling into a massive mall parking lot to pick up a friend when the heat shield on my Mercury Topaz decided to partially let go. It dropped just enough to make contact with the road and it tipped forward, so it was jammed hard against the asphalt. The sound was horrendous.


Ok_Catch_408

Lots of interesting words used that night. About the funniest thing I've ever heard on here!!!!


darcy_clay

Did the same in my dad's Isuzu pickup. Reversed and came unwound. Rigged it up with fencing wire and a cheap leather belt. Belt caught on fire but the wire held. Dropped it off to him and told him ten years later. Good times


ryqeb

Some great comments and good guesses. Backstory is... Older customer didn't know what gear they were in and backed into a short retaining wall. Car sounded like a lawn mower coming in.


oiuvnp

That hanger is the real MVP here.


Darth--Chungus

Hodor the exhaust hanger


thepotplants

I didnt know cars could be that clean underneath.


Demorative

Come to CA, 30 year old cars look like that.


opeth10657

They don't even look that clean on the dealer lot in WI


pollo_de_mar

Back in the 70's in Utah I remember peeking under the new cars out on the lot at the Oldsmobile dealership. I was surprised at the amount of surface rust.


aj5667

Depends where you are in Utah. Here in Southwestern Utah there is not much rust at all. The only rust we see is on the cars from Salt Lake.


texaschair

Friend of mine lived in Logan, and the rust was the only thing keeping his cars intact.


Demorative

Structural rust?


sokratesz

Load bearing


texaschair

More like Salt Lake City dropped the "Lake" from it's name. I used to live in AK, and that was bad enough. Utah is like the LDS believes salt will expel the heathens from their Promised Land.


Trotskyites_beware

Utah county here and honestly don’t see that much rust. I see a LOT of older cars around here too.


Leaf_Rotator

>The only rust we see is on the cars from Salt Lake. It's almost like they put it in the name or something!


pollo_de_mar

Salt Lake indeed. Must be The Great Saltair ;)


que_la_fuck

See they got better after that. They started shipping cars with leaks to mitigate the surface rust


an_actual_lawyer

Go peek at a new Tesla. Most of them have rusty panels. Don’t believe me, google “Tesla rust.”

Fluid film is the only thing I’ve found to slow it down. Garden sprayer and a paint can of it and go to town


HoaxMcNolte_NM

Model Ts are rust free here in NM. But late 00s interiors have already been fried by the UV, so there's that.


Threedawg

Yeah. It everything rubber is shot. I remember swapping all the rubber off of my Michigan Fiero onto my New Mexico Fiero lol


que_la_fuck

Dude for real. One time I did a power steering rack on a like 06 Camry that was a California car, took me like 20 minutes when it usually takes me 45. It was comical how easy it was. Why the fuck do I live here


hO97366e6

Same in Oregon and probably Washington, but you have to be careful buying because dealers like to pick up cheap cars at the auctions in Calgary and foist them off on unsuspecting people here who don't think about rust. Trucks especially, one look underneath some and you can tell they lived a hard life in the oil fields.


PeanutHakeem

Don’t get foisted


ArlesChatless

Yes Washington. If you see rust you have a decade or two to deal with it. I still see a late 60s Nova being daily driven and street parked here, and it has original looking paint and no visible rust.


KacerRex

Can confirm, have a 94 Mustang that has spent 95% of it's life in WA and is practically rust free.


vahntitrio

Not a mechanic so I don't see a ton of vehicles, but on my personal vehicles here rust is mostly just an annoyance. Makes maintenance more of a chore than it needs to be. It isn't sending vehicles out to pasture prematurely, but might make you replace a muffler sooner than you would in California. So for someone that doesn't do their own maintenance, a normal amount of rust is no concern. Usually takes some other damage to the vehicle to get things rusted to a problematic point.


FOR_SClENCE

had a 90 Z32 with zero rust, and none of the seals were dry rotted. can confirm


teetertodder

Similar in Virginia. I moved here from northeast OH and I can’t tell you how nice it is wrench on cars that aren’t 30% rust. Bolts don’t shear. Rust doesn’t fall on your face. It’s magical.


rigby1945

You can always tell the cars that come from outside of California


attack_bronson

Don’t go to Comifornia, go ANYWHERE else there isn’t snow.


BillNiEtHENaZiPy

What size exhaust do you have? Quarter inch. Oh, ok...WHAT!?!?


Trotskyites_beware

That’s like…average right?


Allnewsisfakenews

eBay cat back exhaust


Extesht

Listing said oem replacement. Took two months to arrive from China, half of which was because the drug dogs had a false positive.


MWisBest

Not enough rust for eBay


Denisimo7

It’s one of those fuel saving exhaust systems I keep hearing about.


superdirt

This car is great on emissions


fatboy1776

Exhaust from Wish? Seriously, what happened ?


The_BusFromSpeed

Popular theory seems to be an impact from behind, like backing into a stump, forcing the exhaust forward and making the pipe fold like a paper clip


GotItClocked

I know nothing about Wish but would like to hear the stories.


deviant324

You see stuff for prices that *must* make the manufacturer lose money, but that’s assuming you actually get the real thing and not a garage knockoff. I’ve seen videos where people bought parts for an entire PC on wish and try assembling it to see how hard they got screwed, sometimes you buy next gen graphics cards and get one that you couldn’t buy new for over 10 years that has had some type of software gore done to it so it will tell your system it is the next gen it is supposed to be (or even better sometimes), but obviously telling your beater to identify as a Lambo doesn’t make it perform like one.


HoaxMcNolte_NM

I also know nothing about Wish, all I've heard is you tend to get some bunk shit from them. Probably one star.


theyarealone

As someone who has shopped on wish, you get what you pay for in terms of quality, however no guarantee you receive what you ordered. Customer support was typically good with refunds, but that was a couple years ago. There are definitely some interesting items on there. Best place to get gifts for someone you don't care about much, or if you don't mind cheap knockoffs.


V65Pilot

When you get rammed in the ass a little hard it can plug you up for a bit.


upsidedownbackwards

Nah, the cum and lube turn things into a racetrack afterward. It's Santorum time after buttsex!


itsmyfirsttimegoeasy

I'm shocked it could even run.


AmericanFlyer530

Gotta get that back-pressure.


NomadFire

If I were to guess how this happened. I would say the driver reverse into something that pushed his muffler back and bent the exhaust.


Many_Lion_1145

That was my first thought that they got rear-ended


Aliens_Unite

The fuck?

Kinky. Didn’t know you like to lay pipes like that.

S-Pipe exhaust


Tecno2301

Exhaust fumes hit the curve in the pipe, and generates force to propel the car forward. Just like how a hose goes up if it has enough pressure and is curved like that. Simple physics guys.
