Default Very horrible story..please look

Well last night my dad took his intrigue in to get some stuff fixed because he still has warranty so he needed my bonneville for the next day and i got my 2nd car the lesabre untill he got his intrigue back. ..Anyways, on my dads lunch break he was stopped at an intersection and there was a SEMI at the other corner. The semi didnt even look at my dad and gunned it to pull onto the street and it hit the front end of my car. My dad is okay. I haven't seen my car :(..but my dad said that there'* possibly 4 to 5 thousand dollars worth of damage done..if not totalled. If its not totalled i get a new engine..i guess thats lookin on the bright side. If it is i have to get a new car. I'm defintely staying bonneville the whole way though. I am extremely pissed right now.. i also didnt get off at menards untill 12 o'clock damnit! Big day after thanks giving sale..hate it! ..the only thing i can thank god for is that my dad is okay. I'll keep ya updated..

- Bonneless and not proud of it.

*slams fist into wall*

Why in gods name does God torment Bonnevilles! Its a friggin 4 door family sedan that many people LOVE...so why take the love away by making us cry?!?!

Sorry about the dramatics, but it upsets me that Bonnevilles always get hit.
Don't take that the wrong way, I'm not mad at you or your dad. In fact its relieved your dad is ok. I know how you feel though....a damn dodge ram hit the front of my Bonnie a few months ago. Yeah insurance covered it, but my rates went up and shes never been the same. I know what your going through....you wanna punch the semi driver in the face and make him eat his own sh-- nevermind.

Glad your father is ok....and things WILL pull through for the better. Keep looking on the bright side bud.

That really sucks dude. Those damn semi drivers **** me off. They know we are there, and they just think they own the road. I've had some close calls with some before, and they just ******* **** me off.

I'm glad nothing serious happened to your dad.

For the car, I know how ya feel. I won't forget when I got reared by that Firebird. 2600 in damage right there, but luckly I still have the car.

Hey, I just remembered something. You guys remember when Amy'* car ate that deer? Right after it got rear-ended? The shop that put her car together used the 96-99 grille, hood, and I think the headlights would have to go with them.....maybe even fenders too. Anyway, she ended up with at least the newer grille and hood by mistake. I haven't seen pics yet, but I've heard it looks pretty cool. I don't think there would be a price difference either. Something to think about. I'd hate to see it totalled after all the work you put into it.

Sorry to hear about your car, but very glad your dad is okay. Yup, I got the newer headlights to go with the hood and grille. I don't believe there was a price difference either.
