Lord, was my car botn a tree magnet?

I can't believe my f******* luck! My car is a rebuilt title cause six years ago someone nailed a tree in it. Well some guy offered me a bike and I told him about the rebuilt title and that it hit a tree. He said where was I hit at and I said from cause it'd be ****ed up if the rear hit a tree. Well I opened my mouth cause I park my car in the same spot every day and I was inside and my father n law said your cars across the road... This car with e brake on dodged my truck drove through the sign and mailbox between two trees and missed barely going of into the creek. And you know what's messed up??? The car is being sold to a guy in Ohio Sunday. Lol I deducted 100 for the damage but I'm lucky my car didn do any more damage.

That sucks.. good thing it wasn't worse.. one of the first things they told me when I bought my Mustang.. leave it in gear when parked.. don't take the TC off unless at the track or if your going to do a burnout.. don't floor it when making a tight turn with stuff around you

Park with ebrake on and leave in gear. What I've always done. Also utilize neutral often while driving and shift sooner at lower rpms for gas conservation :p if thats ever a concern for you
