I just thought that I'd post a couple of pics up here to *celebrate* my car's first ride on a flatbed.

Story found here: http://toyotanation.com/forum/t177733.html

It seems that age really is catching up to my car in terms of maintenance items, that's for sure.

Luckily my car is platinum/silver/baby blue, so it's not really that apparent when it's dirty...or else I would have posted these pics up on the dirty camry competition thread :p: now instead it's just a thread about being towed.

All I can say is that I was lucky I got a flatbed driver that was well experienced with lowered cars even though I was stuck out in the boonies. It took him a good 20min to get the car up, but he tooks his time and there isn't a scratch on the car.

All I can say about the entire experience is this: you can never have too many gauges in to monitor the condition of your car no matter how crazy it may look at times, and thank god for CAA.

TravisAe86 -> yeah, they basically all do that....you CAN modify it to fit better, but then the mounting tabs have to be modified....a bit of work....might get around to it sometime.

it's not that noticeable when you're not looking at the car from the bottom...:lol:


and DarkSideCelica -> the bumper's not a good idea, but I was too lazy to take it off this year and put my oem bumper back on...that, and I was hoping that it wouldn't snow at all. It's not too bad since my car's not that low, and when I got hit the slopes, I take my parent's cars or something.

and I wouldn't be caught dead running on anything less than 17s on a car the size of the camry ;) but to be fair, the pirelli 210s are amazing winter high performance tires :thumbup: I hope I never get a flat though, since they cost a damn fortune *knock on wood*

it doesn't always snow THAT much in michigan, does it, damon? if it does, pick up a stock bumper and use that in the winter...saves the wear and tear on the lip....but in the end tho, it's polyurethane, so all you really have to worry about is the paint

and lol...at least the gen3.5 lip isn't designed like the gen3 lip...mine is a perfectly designed snow-shovel when the snow gets deep :hammer:


and dickson -> tell me about it...haha...my oil takes forever to heat up before I'm willing to boost. and my tranny....well....it just about never heats up....have you seen the size of my tranny cooler? :lol:



I blocked up most of it when it started to get cold though:
