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

Damn that sucks. At least you weren't hurt.
Hate to see a good piece of machinery like that go to waste though. Bring on the stroked T series :D

Sorry to hear about it mate. Were you turning? What was the exact circumstances, did police attend? Just curious.

I was waiting to turn right in the middle of the intersection and the other car went through a red light and hit the right side passenger door and rear quarter panel and now the chassis is now like a banana. I was pretty lucky as the car nearly hit my door and with that impact i would think i would be in hospital right now with a couple broken bones, or more.
With my insurance it is getting processed right now and waiting for a response. I hope they won't be pricks and deny my claim.

If the other bloke went through the red light, shouldn't it be his fault, thus not causing you to worry about your insurance?? It should be on his head shouldn't it?? :confused:

You go on down to the smash shop and take photos before they take the car away. Then post them for all to see how lucky you are!
