Default Bonnie DEAD!

guys, you're not gonna believe this...but i killed bonnie on friday. a lady driving a van in front me stopped REALLY suddenly...and i was succeeding in avoiding her...but she turned into me (all at 55 mph) and i couldn't avoid her any longer..of course, we met and in the process i lost control...spun through three peoples' beautiful lawns missed a rather large pine tree by 6 inches (caught a TON of branches though) missed a mailbox mounted on SOLID steel by 4 inches (the angle of the ditch protected my drivers side mirror...but it was already demolished from hitting the van) and proceeded to come to a halt...........the damage? probably totaled. the force snapped one of the gorgeous rims. wahhhhh. i am so depressed. thanks SO much for the price advice, compliments, and help guys. you all are great and i've NEVER been offended by any of you...but it looks like bonnie will R.I.P. you have no idea..(or maybe you fanatics do) how sad it is that i lost this car! It was SUCH a beautiful car! two old people absolutely BABIED it before selling it to me...and i've done the same. in any case...it'* off the market. hope you guys have a great time out there with your bonnies. i'll always think of mine when i see one go by. thanks again guys...you all are great and will be missed if indeed my car is totaled!

Beano....sorry to see her go, but she protected you well. Chalk another save up to the Bonneville column.

Get another one, but even if you don't, make sure you stop in from time to time. It'* good to see old friends

I lost a ville and got another one in 2 months. I know how it is to be atatch to something you really like then lose it. Just be patient and see what the true results are with the present car. If it is totalled, just take your time looking for anothe Bonny, if thats your preference

Well at least you walked away from it. Good thing you were in a sturdy, well built vehicle.

No doubt she was good to you, and her last act was to keep you safe in such a dangerous situation. There are 3800 powered cars all over out there for sale. Consider this a fresh new beginning...
