Default OUCH!

Well, today I was waiting for my friend to get his truck that was parallel parked on a hill near the high school. I was waiting for about 20 minutes and I was getting very mad because I thought that he had forgoten to pick me up! So he calls me on my cell phone and tells me to come up to the truck?! I was worred then because I had seen a cop with his lights and sirens going up the hill that he was parked on. So as I was walking up the hill I saw that there had been a wreck further up the hill than were he was parked! Then I saw that a cop was behind a car that was parked behind him. As I got up there I found out that my friend had backed into a car behind him! He owns a lifted 1994 Ford F-250. He had ran into a older Pontiac Gand Prix. Nothing was damaged to his truck but that is not the case for the Pontiac! The hood was buckeled, the light bar was broken, and the bumper was damaged. He had forgotten to put the truck in drive when he hit the gas to get on the road. Anyway, he got a $133 ticket for "improper backing", whatever the hell that means!

I assume the driver of the Grand Prix is gonna have his insurance come after your friend.

It happens.

Another Grand ***** bites the dust..

but never the less.. I don't like Ford ( Found On Road Dead / Fix or Repar Daily ) either.. with maybe the possible Saleen Mustangs.. but it'* a Mustang gutted to work.

That'* a drag for your friend however.. no matter how good of a driver he is.. on paper and to insurance he no longer is.. with a traffic ticket, and the way insurance has been sky rocketing.. don't be surprise if he'* insurance goes up on renewal ( and hope it'* not cancelled ). I've heard of that happening before.

The big dilemma of lowering or raising a vehicle: Will people see me this low to the ground?
and
Can I see people this high off the ground?

well the really bad thing is that he has only had his liscense about 4 months! He got it in October when he turend 16. Thankfully though nobody was hurt! He ws getting pretty good insurance because he has the "good grade" discount. Thats going to change!

I would have to say that I also enjoy Ford trucks much more than Chevys. Don't get me wrong, Chevys are ok but I think that if I had a choice I would go or a Ford.
P.*. My friends truck has a 460 engin, K&N air filter, and Dual Flowmaster Exhaust. He is in the process of getting headers on

Default well,

I talked to the kid that my friend hit, and the car was totalled! So weird! It didn't look that bad. He said it had something to do with the uni-body construction? Anyone know what he is talking about?
