Default saw the old car today..

This is when I owned it.. (February '07..)




This is a few months after I sold it. .
November of 2007..the woman came over to pay us some of what she owed us.

And.. today..



That pissed me off.

I told her "Keep it in nice shape, I may buy it back in a year or two" and she said "I will.. I'll pop by with it every once and awhile."

What the ****! how can someone do that in just a few short months.. I only had time to grab that one last pic, I saw her walk in and I pulled off the road, turned around and grabbed that pic.. I put so much blood sweat and tears into getting that car to where it was..

Eric, did it occur to you for a minute that the damage might not be the owner'* fault?

Or did it occur to you to ASK?

I see a tailpipe on the right side of the bumper... so she definitely rear ended someone - whether it was her fault or not who knows. And winter can make things like that happen very quick and uncontrollably. Sorry to see that, it was a nice looking bonne... but stuff happens lol.

The woman obviously kept the car clean, so it'* not like it was neglected. Accidents happen. If you happen to see her again, ask her about it, but don't be confrontational.

You might ask if her insurance is going to repair it. If not, you might be able to buy it back cheap and fix it. I see no indications of frame damage.

The camera didn't pick it up.. there was mud all up inside the wheel wells, the left side and right side front wheels were *black*, paint was muddy/dirty, idk. The woman worked for my mom (my mom is a food service manager for the local school district..) so .. We know she'* not a good driver, my mom told me she rear ended someone when it was raining because she stopped too late.. she told me it was just a scrape in the bumper.. so whatever, lol

I'm able to move on, it'* just hard seeing my car like that.. idk. lol sorry for making this worthless post

Agreed! Crap happens. I would never want to be accused of beating on the tempo. Even though I do a little, but i still love it
