Default You Cannot Kill These Cars

This is the aftermath of an accident that I had at my apartment complex.

Bill for porperty was just shy of $10,000 (ten thousand) green-backs

Bill for the car was around the $7,300 mark.

So what happened do you ask, go thru all of the pics and it will be at the bottom









































The Finished Product:



I cannot stress enought the fact that you cannot kill these cars. I wish they still made them. The property damage was at $10,000 and the car was at $7,300.

So what happened, well it is a timed gate. The road goes down all the way in to the apartment complex and as it does, it curves to the right as you come up to the gate. Someone had just went thru there and I JUST about made it, except there was a brick pillar in my way. I should have never had beed speeding on wet asphault with that rubber coating on it. I was doing about 25 or so.

The car was able to back its self off of everything that I creamed on the way in. It took 6 months for everything to get straightened out. I put 6K+ miles on the car in the mean time including a trip from Warner Robins, GA to St. Louis to the Thumb of Michigan and turned around and came back.

I love my Bonnie. This is a tribute to her.

Bonneville - 1
Gate - 0


$7300 is a lot of damage. It'* not dead, so it wasn't totalled?

Oh yes. It took me 7 months to get her fixed. 6 of paperwork and 1 to actually get it done. Any bonnie pics I have are of this same car. She is my baby. Totaled, no, not at first, I got the check, drove it to the dealership, and it was more damage than the insurance was aware of. $500 deductible. The dealership did not want anything to do with it until they were sure everything was clear. It was a mess.

I saw the guy behind the gate and thought..he said.."you can't come in"
Then I saw the truck w/pushbars...and thought ... he thought he was in the truck

The the revelation hit me......and no one else said it yet

Yae, yea Bill, I know; the white curse does continue on.

For the other posts...

No I was not drinking...It would have been one hell of a ride if I would have been though.

SSEi+not so good tires+wet road+full throtle+curve+trying to stop=well, you saw it.

Always carry a camera. Always, but mine is at home right now. I need to charge it, it'* digital.

I thought I wouold take some pics while I trying to calm down, I was well shooken up. The girls said I was a very bright white, flushed right out.
