Default I just can't win.

Today was supposed to be the day I would show you all my first bonneville. I installed my auto dim mirror. Cleaned the interior and cleaned the motor. So I went to pick up my friend Gerry since he has a digital camera.

Well I decided to go to my usual car wash to have the car fresh and clean.
When I arrived it was closed (Damn) . Oh well I proceeded to another car wash on Queens Blvd. I went through the was all happy that my car was clean. Well now its time to get back on the road I have to choices 1 go right and go around the block to head home or go left cross a lane of traffic and go home. Well I look left i looked right nobody around . There is a gap in the traffic and a bmw lets me through. Ok started to go through and then suddenly WHAM . Then I see a Chevy blazer out of god knows where and we hit . She caught my passenger light and bumber I catch well the Left side of her SUV. ([email protected]#[email protected]%@$#%) My perfect day shattered

Well I survayed the damage and I can say one thing compared to a blazer I got of easy. Any way after me getting yelled at by the lady driver and my dad plus waiting three hours for the police officers (not that I blame them) On a good note the I believe the officer gave more blame to the driver of the blazer then me. Well I'm done ranting I thought i'd fell better but I don't. Well tomorrow I'll post pics of the damage.
