I don't know if any of you really consider me to be a regular in here, but I just wanted to share the weekend's events in here. Be really thankful for your health and for your friends family. Friday I went to Dumfries, VA (about a 3 hour drive) to pick up a mint 03 S2000 with 19k on the clock. It was raining, and I looked the car over with my dad. Everything looked mint. We both drove the car, but because traffic in the area is so bad, didn't take it on the highway (which is a parking lot on 95). Long story short, later that night, the car hydroplaned an hour from home, less than 8 hours after buying it. I tore the front end out of it sideways on highway 40 @ 65 mph in the rain in Burlington, NC. The next day I my parents come up, with my dads truck and car trailor and get the S to bring it home so that if it's not totalled, I can have a local place fix it instead of a place more than an hour away. These are the pictures once I got it home in the garage: It's hard to see, but everything is shifted up on the drivers side: Me and dads handywork to get the thing on a trailer: Drivers side rear: Passenger side rear: Both of the fronts look like this: I feel like such an idiot for not checking the rears. I looked at the fronts with the wheel turned to the lock and just assumed that the rears would be fine. The tow truck driver told me that at least in NC (I bought the car in VA) that it's illegal for a dealership to sell a car that won't pass state inspection. There is an inspection sticker on my dash saying that it was inspected 10/10/07. There is no way they inspected the car with good tires and then swapped them. They had to break the wheel locks that were on the car because they didn't have the key. I'm fucking furious that I was sold a car with tires that look like this. I know, there's a whole buyers beware thing, but I don't expect to walk away from a dealership with a car that isn't roadworthy to get home.
