My XR8 is dead

I was T-Boned at a intersection in Carlton and the car is now a write off :( When i saw the other car coming towards me i completely sh!t my pants .
The car was only 9 months old and now it is gone.
I was'nt seriously injured in the accident and i was able to get out of the car and see if the other person was alright which he was. The funniest thing to come out of it was that i washed the car 30 minutes before hand which took me 2 hours to do .
Now i'm going to buy a sh!t box and then buy a 5.7 stroker T-Series later in the year. Oh yeh baby :D
I suppose all the guys on LS1.com will be happy after the XR8 that beat a VX SS is now destroyed :wink2:

Sh*t mate, that's bloody ordinary.. Glad you're ok, that's the main thing. Cars are replaceable, people aren't..
Good luck getting the stroker!!.. out of everything bad comes a good result.. :thumbup:

OH ****, you poor fella... I know exactly how you feel, I smashed up my AUII in March, but it luckily was fixable.

Do you know who's fault it was? Are you insured?

Yeah mate you have my sympathy too! But as the lads have said, the main thing is that you yourself aren't in the same state as the car. Also, if you can save the pennies and collect the insurance money and put them towards a stroker, then something nice will definitely have come out of it! :D
