Subject: RE: BS: I've never wrecked a car before!!!!.
I had to say goodbye to my '68 Mustang after a lady drove off a parking lot into her side at about 35 or 45 MPH. Tore the sheetmetal from the roof down to the trunk and left an 8" dent from halfway down the passenger side door to about 6" from the rear bumper. The impact was hard enough to actually bend the axle downward, not just the axle but the housing as well. Too much to repare on the measely $1,200 the insurance company gave me (after me fighting them tooth and nail)
I still feel bad about dropping her off at the "Mustang Ranch" a mustang spare parts place, and that was over 15 years ago.
Damn I miss her.
