    A tree almost fell on my car, lucky me...

    I had owned my 987s for 4 months now and never had I had such a close encounter with an accident that was about to happen to my ride.

    Yesterday a typhoon hit Hong Kong and I was waiting in line for the tunnel on Gloucester Road right outside of the Immigration Department (for those HK Rennteam mates, it was ridiculous we only had a signal 3 yesterday). There were 2 cars in front of me a cab 2 cars in front and a jet black SL 55 AMG with the retractable hardtop. Boom! 3 trees were blown away and dropped onto the cab and then the SL 55 AMG and I was shaking in my car cos I thought I would be next. Then thank god it didn't happen. The tree fell right on top of the SL's metal roof and if it had happened to me, for sure my roof would be totally gone and I don't even know if I will be hurt. That's always something I wonder... what if something like this happens to a canvas top for sure it would not hold up. More of a reason for a coupe next time I guess.

    Good to hear you are ok, but is stanger the tree fall in Gloucestoer Road, when I see the topic I would though is in your carpark or around the hill.

    Re: A tree almost fell on my car, lucky me...

    i was watching the HK news, heard the typhoon was pretty bad

    hmmm get a hard top for summer! haha

    just an off topic question..

    is that you in the picture??? nachi.

    Glad your car was not damaged. Here's a pic to show my Mini survived a landslide - the rocks just missed it by a few feet!

    I guess her bark deflected the rocks away from the car! Seriously it was very fortunate that no one was hurt.

    ERdoc that was pretty close but no cigar. The peak oftentimes have landslides and my roommate who used to live with me in college lives on Mt. Kellett Road and he's always blocked in whenever we have a typhoon. Thank god. Otherwise, it would have cost some $$$.
