As of 8 pm this evening, thanks to a 92 year old driver (yes, you read that right)....my SE has gone to a better place. The old guy pulled a left hand turn right in front of me...then stopped in the middle of the road.
Other than muscle pain in my back, I'm fine. Not my fault officially, and he has insured. The irony? He had a 00 GXE. I hit his right front wheel, I had no where to go, because he again, pulled out and stopped blcoking the entire 2 lane road. The old guy seemed fine, but I overheard the cops saying he had no family to contact, so my girl and I are gonna go check him out in the hospital tomorrow to see if he's okay. We also had the same insurance company, State Farm, so things should take care of themselves. What sucks is I'm slightly upside down on my loan, and when I had refinaced my loan with another company, my GAP insurance had been cancelled. Oh well.
But, I'm alave, he's alive, he's insured and that's the bottom line. But seeng as how this is the second SE I've owned to meet such an untimely end, I think I'm gonna look for a nice late model RSX or Celica GTS, or Maybe see if there are any Mazdaspeed Proteges out there. Tomorrow I'm calling my Nissan dealer to see about a 2005 Altima SE, maybe....but, then again, maybe not.
But that's it. I'll try to post some pics for prosterity's sake, and I'll keep the thread updated as well. If anyone has had the experience of dealing with a similar situation (no fault). I'd appreciate your thoughts. Good thing my girl's an attorney; she's going to help out if anything gets crazy, but it shouldn't.
Still breathin' so I'm goin' to the club!!!
