Unhappy SVT Down

Well I know none of you Hawaii fanatics got to meet me as I was working on getting my car back into great shape, but Friday night that came to an end.

While driving back from Honolulu, I was rear ended on the H1 by a drunk driver who blacked out behind the wheel. I was going around 60 and he was going 95+. I seen the hit coming but there were cars on both sides of me so I couldn't get out of the way. He slammed into the back of my car and lifted it off the ground for a second. It destroyed his Frontier as well.

I think I'm alright. I have to get my back and neck checked out tomorrow. The SVT was smashed in pretty good. The exhaust ended up being crinkled up to the rear suspension. The other guy was arrested on the spot for failing a sobriety test. Oh and he had no insurance... It's been a fun 4 years with the car, it always treated me great! It's not deemed a total loss yet, but it's very probable.

Sounds like you are alright. That's the important thing. Sorry to hear about your car though.

Unfortunately I won't be buying the car back because I don't have the time nor a place to store it. I do have a set of Machs and a K&n short ram I'll be listing.
I may possibly interested in getting another one..

Sorry to hear about your loss, but at least you made it out ok. Hope your physicals came back all right.

I'm in Honolulu if you do decide to sell the Machs though.
