on 12/30/2000 I was being an idiot, in that I tried to defy the laws of physics and my poor driving skills and lost control of a finely tuned driving machine while attempting to get on the freeway.

The rear end broke loose and I couldn't correct or is it I didn't correct, in time and I did a 180 degree spin. The car narrowly missed hitting the guardrail but hit the small sign square on the passenger side door and parts of the fender plus the side gills.

So the car was in 3rd gear and when it rotated the car was still in gear. I know that in a spin both feet in but due to my physical(not mental although you might be thinking other wise) handicap I was not able to do so.
