    Yeap last night i was going a little to fast so I slammed on the breaks to slow down. Then I started to turn toward my garage (20' by 12' building built very cheaply to keep out the snow and rain, wind, cats, dogs, etc) I got kinda close to the 2001 dodge right next to the opening so I turned the wheel as far as I could But I think it was a little to much. I ended up busting one 2x4 in 3 and just knocking 2 more out of the way and ripping the 3/8" plywood on the other side off the wall. So I backed up and got out ran to the front of my truck. Not a dent or scratch to be seen. But the wall was kinda messed up. But I was able to fix that with a hammer. I don't do to many stuiped things but when I do something stuiped I do it right.

    Well just so you don't feel alone, I've done the same thing..pushed the back wall off the foundation, busted the bottom plate where it was studded to the foundation. Came in to the garage, and no brakes hit the bench which was butted up to the wall, and walla....it stopped.:haha: :haha:
