Waaahh. (Rubs Eyes)

You OK? Just seeing that hurts.

What's the R.I. line? State's got the worst Drivers since it's too small to learn to drive in?

Sorry to see that - Tissue Passed...

I don't think that will buff out. Just kidding of course. That really sucks. It looks like a torn up coke can. I hope you are okay.

I'm a little sore under my left ribcage. I think my elbow jammed into it. A repair shop was moving a car across a highly traveled street. I didn't have a second to react. I saw him coming across and there was a parked car to my right. I braked and tried to thread the needle. Well, that didn't work out too well. I did a 180 and ended up in the opposite lane. My friend's 2003 GT convertible just took the same type of hit last fall. The insurance company totaled it. Being a 2001 Focus, I expect the same. Of course our cars are worth more to use than book value. The driver owned up to everything and a witness stayed there with me when the police arrived. I'll get the police report when it's ready.

I would be shocked if it's not totaled.

Glad you are relatively unharmed. Sad to hear about the focus. They are definitely worth more to us than book value.

Nah, not this time. It does look like a can opener got a hold of it.

Yeah, if the B pillar isn't bent it's repairable (door & section of quarter panel) but the $ for that adds up fast.

Cheap buyback if it's totaled is often possible, could strip it if not practical to repair. You've got a lot into it IIRC. It was looking so good....

I really couldn't do a buy back. I don't have the funds for another car without some kind of insurance payment. The best I could do is switch out parts I have in my shed if they total it. I'm already bouncing ideas around. I could switch out the Borla catback, Hella headlights, OBX offroad pipe, front upper grill, and maybe the wheels. I'm sure there's other stuff. I have a bin of parts I haven't opened in years.
