Well I have been much delayed posting on here...but last march I lost my IS300 in a fight between it and black ice & a tree.. :balling: The car did its job...it broke and I didn't. Worst part was it was the last freeze of the year and I was only going 20 miles per hour. I guess even snow tires can't withstand ice!

It was a great 5 year run and I wish everyone here the best of luck!

Here are pictures of the wreck: Picasa Web Albums - Patrick Mergler - Wrecked IS300

My new ride is quite a change but needed something to haul a speedboat...IS wouldn't cut it :bigSmile: I still carried forward my drive to customize...had the lift kit, new tires & rim, front bumper and side rock rails delivered before I even took delivery :cool: Picasa Web Albums - Patrick Mergler - New Wrangler ...

Sorry to hear about you loss. I am also contemplating selling my IS to get a nice truck. I need something to transport my dirt bike around in and I refuse to pull it with my car. If my IS was not paid off already I would prob do it in a second.

Glad to hear you made out ok. Just think if another 490,000 black IS300s crash I would have the only one. :lol:

Trees don't give much....and I hit right on the corner, I guess call it a weak point :(
