Anyone agree that I'm having shitty luck with this car? Less than 3,500 miles to-date and the trans has been rebuilt and now this. Not alot, but for the 3 weeks I had the car in my possesion (was at the trans shop the remaining three weeks since I bought the car in the first week of January).
Also, I have a some sad luck when it comes to the uninsured -my 1992 and this -the only two times I've been hit and they're both uninsured. :(

god that sucks! At least he hit it right in the middle so you don't have to be replacing a door or bumper.

its not uncommon, people who are bad drivers generally dont buy insurance because it would be way to much.

Try to look at the positives:
1.) Only the fender needs to be replaced.
2.) Hood can be patched up.
3.) He didn't run over the entire front end of your car.

I know it sucks though...been through it twice with this car and once with my first car. I don't think cars are cursed...the good people in the world are.

Sorry to hear that. Before my car was hit, I was just complaining to
my lady that why she didn't clean the car. Then BOOM!!
I think I would have lost it if I was you.
After all that work you put into washing it. Damn! That really SUCKS!!!!!!



I'm sorry, I'm ok now. It'* just that people just don't seem to
respect the art of driving anymore. They just drive along with
their signal flashing left and cut you off with a right turn. Or too
busy talking on the phone to notice that their drifting into your
lane then get mad when you hook them. I guess I interrupted
their conversation. Or the guy in the Grand Am that thinks he
can take me at the light! That'* always fun.
I wish that people understood that driving is not a right!
IT'* A RESPONSIBILITY! And needs to be treated as such!!!!
Well at lease on the street. Now the expressway is a
WHOLE DIFFERENT STORY! Fly bady fly......
