My younger brother decided it'd be a good idea take his subaru leone wagon off road in a big way today. In his own words he "got it bogged real good" He then proceeded to attempt to tow it out with his L300 van. Got that stuck too. Then he bogged his hilux trying to tow out the van. I'm not sure if this post is in the right section... but i thought the pics he took on his phone were good enough to share. Sorry it's not a ford, but here ya's go...
EDIT: sorry i have posted the pics so that you have to click a link, but it's the only way i know how. Oh, and feel free to post your own "bogged" car pics in this thread if you've got some good ones...
A bit over a year ago, we went out to my mate's paddock for the weekend, 4 of us. 2 of the guys hit the turps and called it a night, the guy who owns the Lantra and I stayed up for a bit of fun (come on, a 5 speed manual and a paddock, it's asking for it!).
Handbrake turns, doughies, the lot. The thing got a WORKOUT. Bouncing off the rev limiter pretty much non-stop. The only incidents being me nearly cleaning up a tree coming out of a handbrake turn, my mate nearly taking out a fence.
For some reason my mate decided to drop the clutch at 4500 RPM in reverse. It was alright fun, launching it off, spinning it, clutch in, first, take off. Until my mate mis-judged the creek bed.
We tried for about 2 hours to get it out, gave up around 4am and got it towed out the next morning. Only broke the number plate surround, not a bad effort!
Ahhhh the young and the stupid lol, scary at the time, I laugh now.
Incidently, about 5 months later the car CRAPPED itself. Timing belt gave up, pistons went straight into valves.
Lol, thats bogged baaad hehe. One time after a biiig night out me and a friend took his mums corolla out for early morning sideways action. He took it into this big open dirt area next to a footy oval and we played around driving makinnen style. We got into a huuuuuge power slide before he lost it and we went sideays through a fence!
Yeah, young and stoopid...

I once parked my XE up a tree while mesin around on a muddy road. It was only a small tree but the front got stuck on it and the rear wheels ended up in the mud so my mate had to tow me off. Wasnt funny at the time but afterwards it was hilarious.
havent got any pics, but was goin round a roundabout one night on the way home from work and someone in an XF who was turning right must have given it a bit too much, as he exited the roundabout but the back just kept going and he went off the edge of the road and down some ditch/hill on the side of the road. good luck getting out of that one mate, its prolly a 60 degree slope comprised of dirt, and it was raining. looked pretty classic though, no one would have been hurt
