      Sorry to hear about the t-boning. But surely your dad eventually forgave you. It wasn't your fault! They hit YOU!  :-)

        Foolishly admitted that I'd been doing 45 in a 40.  Divided road, where doing the limit got you hit in the rear.  Fool tried crossing between cars and failed (for the 5th time according to the adjuster).

        Parish priest stopped by the accident site and talked with my parents.  Completely stopped traffic.  Everyone was looking for the body.

        Dad got $1400 for the hulk and got a '68 Olds 98 in it's place.  Hot rod to tank in one step.

        •  Kind of like after my MG finally gave up the ghost (0+ / 0-)

          and I was out on my own. All I could afford then was a Chevette with an Earl Schieb paint job...

          just the car! Glad you were okay. Cars - even cool ones - are just stuff...  :-)
