I don't want to perpetuate racial stereotypes but it was an asian. :o She couldn't speak english very well, said something about the light being green (no traffic light for a block in either direction) so I know she didn't know what was up. Traffic officer said that it was her fault, obviously. I can't stop worrying about my baby. :( Now I'm stuck with some crappy 00' Camry that my parents kept around, luckily they were nice enough to drive it up here for me. It makes me miss my car a lot. Also, when someone backed up into my Bonnie and it was in the shop, I got rearended with this Camry. That was the same day I got laid off. It really comes all at once for me. Hopefully I won't get a repeat this time.

Well I dunno if this helps any.... doubt it, but I have only been in Wyoming a few months and I am from Texas. I had to go to the dmv to get my drivers license changed for the state of Wy. Well this one girl who was ahead of me was only 16 yrs old. Her mom pretty much tried to bribe the person who gave the girl her driving test to pass her. The dmv person said loud and clear where several people could hear, that he shouldnt pass the girl because her turns were to wide, she didnt know how to go the speed limit, and she doesnt pay attention to signs and need i go on???? Anyways, I mumbled that this was BS because if she cant pass a simple driving test she doesnt need to be driving. They went ahead and passed her unfortuneately. My point is, its not just old people, its not just young people. But its stupid people who never knew how to drive to begin with. And the dumb dmv'* who go ahead and pass them because they dont want to deal with the kid or the parents. And you wonder why some people suck at driving? Also the girl that rearended me not to long ago was only 18 yrs old. just out of high school. That was her 5th freakin wreck! and this time she nearly killed someone .. ME! Ther are less older people who have wrecks than the ones who try to be cool, and just got their license or havent been driving long at all. Its honestly stupid. I could go on and on about all this but it would be pointless because it honestly doesn't matter what you say, do or wherever you go, there is ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS going to be someone stupid who doesnt know how to drive and who doesnt care. And thats why a lot of innocent people end up badly injured, or dead! and they didn't even deserve it to begin with... Ok im done.

The damage is mostly cosmetic, but there is damage to the radiator and the big metal piece in the front that holds the lights (excuse my big car terms ). I'm trying to think positively and hope the insurance won't try and total it out but I know I can't deal with car troubles at the moment, with how busy I am. If it comes down to it and I have to total it, I will definately cut everyone on BC a deal on any parts I can salvage first. That'* my last alternative, though...I can put in a bit of money to have it repaired if I need to. Hopefully this can work out, that car is not done yet. It'* a shame what insurance companies do. For the money they will give me for my car, I could never find a replacement even near the same level. It'* not even been a full day and I already miss driving her. :(
I have a stiff neck, if I don't get enough money, maybe the neck problems will develop into something worse. (joking, of course)

Someone let me drive your Bonnie for a few weeks, I'll give you beer!

Like they said, you'll get more than enought to fix her up with yard parts and a fresh paintjob. I just went thru mostly the same parts on my wifes car (minus the fender) and got it all at the yard for $100 even with some extra parts thrown in.

I'd love to drive your car for a while! Pics are coming, all I had was my Nikon SLR camera so I had to get the photos developed, I promise I'll post them by 5:00 PDT. You're going to be seeing some quality prints with my amazing use of aperture and shudder speed! Lady is lucky she didnt break my camera or PSP.

Sorry to hear about your misfortune. It is obvious that you care a lot about your Bonne.

If you end up needing/wanting to fix it yourself, I have the '97 FSMs and would do what I can to help guide you. Also, when the decision comes, I can keep my eyes open at the local yards here for parts.

I sent you a PM.
