  Yea, I dropped it turning around on a gravel road. :'( Not a new story but new to ME!! Need I explain the foot slip on gravel and then saying, "OH POOP!!!" or something of that nature. Lucky just a few nicks and small scratches. Now I can compare my Concours with the others at the next RTE.  A big  :) it could have been worse.

Wow, you bought her new and only just now dropped her for the first time?  I'd say that's a win all the way around - particularly since you weren't hurt and the damage was minor!

And so it has now become my sad duty to confirm you as the 467th recipient of the uncoveted Connie Droppers Anonymous Award.  You have yet another tale to share around a Rally campfire.  My sincerest condolences!

   Have to admit I purchased a new '90 leftover in 1993 and I did drop it in the driveway 2 months later and then totaled it in Kentucky in '94. That was before I knew about COG.
   So does that count as a double dropper?? :'(
