Broke my Fairlane today.

Coming off the back off an absolutely shitefull two weeks, I was on my way down Sydney Road in Brunswick this morning to go to a real estate agent to look for a new place to live. This is after I've been forced to resign from my job in very dodgy circumstances, for which I am taking up with the Unions, Worksafe and Jobwatch.

Anyways, bloke in front of me stops, I try to stop but must have been on the greasy tram tracks as I rammed up the back of him (AUII Fairmont) and push him into a Taxi.

The bloke was really fantastic about the whole thing, as was the taxi driver but the end result is that my Fairlane is broken good and proper. I'll find out on Thursday what the insurance company's assessment of the damage is, but from what I could see it's going to be a minimum of:
Bonnet
Headlight X2
Indicator X2
Front Bar
Radiator
Grill

Hopefully there's nothing too major under the skin!

Re: Broke my Fairlane today.

Sorry to hear it mate. As long as it's not structural you could at least get a cheap EF Falcon front temporarily while you get back to your feet. Keep us posted. :o(
