Totaled.

My freaking car is totaled.

Shite.

I'm going to take a walk (well, a limp) and try to be Zen about this.

Le Crapmobile est morte. :(

Vive le Crapmobile?

I'm very sorry to hear about your car troubles, but hope you're okay.

Hey, why be sad? Well, I mean, I understand we all get attachments to our cars, but have Ms. Hit and Run's insurance company pay for a new car! I'm sure she'd prefer to have you get a nicer car than you did vs. facing criminal charges...

Wait? How did it go from dented in the back to totaled?? Regardless, what shitty luck.

:(

It sucks to lose a car you've had forever.

I hope insurance will get you a great new car that won't break down and is ridiculously safe and that you'll love.

I feel for ya, sister friend.

I was in that same position in February. *sigh*

Oh well, at least you're still FABULOUS!!!

Sooo glad you were not injured more seriously... but the ravages of whiplash can be years manifesting itself... more on that later...
Unbelievable... looking at the pic, I believe the crapmobile is a Ford Escort??
I too had an escort... that is until about 6 weeks ago when 2 heathen teens,the driver TALKING ON A CALL PHONE ran into the back of me at about 50 mph... totally killed all of the plastic bumper panels & crushed in my hatch like it did yours...
The heathens?? Oh they hopped out & looked at the damage to my car & theirs, jumped back in & hauled ass... they only got about another 1/2 mile when their engine quit... then they ran away into the nearby neighborhood... turns out the car was stolen....
I'm getting 800 bucks... doesn't sound bad on the surface for a 93 Escort, but that car only had 36K miles on it !!...

best part though is that NO damage was done to my neck... very important as I have been quadraplegic on two occasions over the past 6 yrs.. the result of bone spurs caused by whiplash injuries many years before.. the numerous surgeries have left me with an array of steel rods & plates holding my neck verts together.. we call it the Bionic neck....

so watch closely for signs of numbness & stiffness in extremities... get regular MRI's to keep checking for residual damage from this deal...
Hope you dodged the bullet that caught up with me many years down the road....
