hi fellas, havent been for while. well im not a happy chappy this week, due to the undue care these 17 year olds take, sitting in traffic on tuesday minding my own bussiness and this little barsted didnt even brake and smashed in my left rear. my poor buttiful falcon. total damage: over $3,500 . dont u hate that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
any one done worse? it would make me feel better if u have.
Sorry to hear it mate, it's a fear we all have to live with. I haven't had such an experience yet (though I was in NZ's car when it got hit ), but too many close calls. One can't drive cautiously enough it seems.
Let us know how you go with insurance.

About 8 weeks after getting my P's I pulled out from a blind corner and came to a screeching halt as a LTD (NC?) collected to front right of my dads EF Fairmont. the fairmont was drivable but about $3000 damage. The LTD had in excess of $12,000.
This happened about 8 years ago.
Falcon Killer (if you believe what Ford Service Departments have to say about me)
AU II XR6 - October 2001 ~ December 2002 - RIP
BA XR6 - December 2002 ~ Soon to disappear if Ford CRC can't fix it....
45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
Yeah I ran into A BA G220 A couple months ago, I was going only about 10 kays but it was still enough to cause $3K To him and $1000 to me...
Needless to say I doubt my expertise as a driver every time I hop in the car now..... It's only made me more jumpy and nervous behind the wheel....
Gee you picked a good one there lol
