That sucks Stan..

They take a hit and keep us safe, isn't that one of the reasons we like to say we drive them. Once we hear details, I'm sure we'll be much more impressed at how the car held up for the hit it took.

Bah...That'll buff right out

Aw, Stan...this REALLY stinks. :(

In all seriousness, I am realy sorry to see this. That car provided so much great information and pictures for the club. Truly a loss for BC.

Of course, if you do end up looking for a replacement (Bonne or not), and you find something down in my neck of the desert, I would be more than happy to go check anything out for you. And airport is only 15-20 minutes away

Thanks, everyone, for all your kind, caring words ("white curse", indeed.) Sorry for waiting so long to fill in the details. Had a lot to do yesterday and the 56k I have at home isn’t conducive to uploading a bunch of pictures. Here’* the story:

My daughter (almost 17) was driving home from school with a full load of friends. A mini van, 2 cars ahead, stopped to make a left turn about the time Hannah looked down to adjust the HUD. When she looked up the car in front of her was stopped (or stopping), she panicked, hit the gas instead of the brake, and WHAM!, the airbags went into action. The car in front of her (Grand Am) saw her coming and tried to move around the van. She pushed the GA out of the way and just nudged the van. Not a single skid mark. Meanwhile the car behind her made sure my rear bumper cover didn’t get out of this unscathed by bumping it just enough to put a crack in it. Since there are no skid marks and the GA was moving, it is impossible to determine the speed of the accident, but I’d WAG is she was doing around 30mph. Aside from some bruises, soreness, and shot nerves, nobody involved was injured – no blood, nothing broken. I hate to lose the Bonney, but I’m glad that’* what she was in.

This is a heck of a way to get some whorage on my car, but here’* some shots…

Cop, daughter, & wife at the scene of the crime, discussing who makes the best doughnuts in town while Nightmare drains her life-blood out of her 2 month old radiator:

Even after a knockout blow, she still manages to shine under all that dirt. I was going to give her a bath last Monday. Glad I didn’t waste my time:


Those airbags are a life-saver, but man, they do some damage. Notice the trim panel around the HUD, the vent grills in the glove box door were blown completely out, and windshield was shattered. When I saw the windshield, I immediately asked who wasn’t wearing their seatbelt. ALL the kids were belted and there was no tell-tale hair from the classic windshield scalping typical of a head-windshield impact:

The Saturn that came last to the par-tay suffered a few scratches to its license plate bracket, and that was about it. It was enough impact, however, to scrape and crack the rear bumper cover thanks in part to the cold temperatures. Looks like it also may have bent the exhaust loop:

Not sure what’* going to happen now. It’* totaled, no doubt. I have full coverage on it and I’ll have to see what they’re going to give me and what they’d sell her back to me for. If it’* reasonable, I’ll buy it and sell it for parts. There’* a lot of very useable stuff on it. The engine & tranny are in good shape, new alternator, new blower motor, many interior parts, deck lid, doors, tires have about 5k on ‘em…I’ll have to wait & see. And I’ll have to find a new craft for my wife.

In the meantime I’ll be known as SSE-less Motorhead.
