Exclamation Rip zx3 -10/2000- 09/2009

Our beloved ZX3 is no more and there is such a thing as good timing and LUCK.
Last night 1140pm. My wife , a nurse,coming back home got very lucky even if she was slightly injured in the accident.

3 young black gang bangers escaping from police after hitting a car on highway 15 South smashed a gardrail on an overpass and plunged head on
with my wife's car sideways. The Acura they had stolen earlier landed on the hood of my ZX3 immobilizing the car instantly. Smashing the windshield and continuing their trek through a park area where their car finally stopped. All were drunk as skunks and high on crack. Police sent 2 to hospital for minor injuries and arrested the driver for blood tests in hospital.

The ZX3 is a total wreck unfortunately but had my wife traveled another 6 inches and they would have clipped her top off and killed her instantly. The Air Bags worked like a charm as she can't even remember when they deployed and saved her from more serious injuries.

We came back from the ICU this afternoon. She suffered a bruised right leg. A
few sore ribs and a concussion attributed to the impact. She also had a cervical strain and must wear a collar. The driver had no injuries but will be charged for DUI.DWI evading police,public endangerment, Damages etc etc etc. He is expected to be back on the street by tuesday.....

That car was in tip top shape and I have tons of invoices from the car dealership to prove it. Does anyone know what would be the value of this car on the market if I would buy one tomorrow ? ( ZX3 2000- Z-tech engine automatic A/C 193,000 km) can you give me a rough figure in Canadian dollars. Being a weekend, I couldn't reach my insurance company so I will call them Monday and I would like to know what we can expect for settlement .

Thanks guys and yes I think there is somebody up there watching over honest people. It's unfortunate that they watch over DRUNKS too.
The good ending here is that my wife is still alive.

Now we only have our 2002 Focus SE wagon.

Does kelly blue book work for Canadian money? If not I'd do that, and then just take the current exchange rate and figure it out.
