Crashed my truck.  I realy liked that truck.  Got in a head on crash at 70MPH  Smashed the whole drivers side of the grill out.  The front driver's side tire was just gone. The front fender was peeled back like the skin on a banana.  It just smashed the hell out of the driver's door.  Yesterday morning I went and looked at it in the daylight.  It finaly sunk in how close of a brush with death I had.  Father said that in his 30 years of driving he had never seen a vehicle wrecked that bad. 
I've seen the future and I don't like it.

I went and looked at it again today.  Wasn't as bad as I had thought.  Just royally screwwed up the front suspension.  Ain't worth it to fix it.  I hit a compact car. It's realy compact now.  Smashed the entire front end out of it.  The hood was on the windshield.

When ya buy the TOY-ota, be sure to take it somewhere to have a REAL frame put under it.(Come to think of it-that would get expensive!) Better just get another 300 c.i. Ford, mate!

Mate !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank God your alright !Smile As the boys have pointed out ,truck can be replaced .....People Can't !

      As a Kamikarzie pilot once said to me ....Any crash you can walk away from is a good one !  Think of it as a learning experiance.

I'd say your year is starting bloody well. Cars can be replaced mate you weren't hurt apart from a bad scare. Glad you walked away from it mate . Look on the bright side if its the other drivers fault you can claim compensation and buy a whole raft of enfields with the money. Wink
