Car Talk

Yesterday, with repair estimate for the damage to my car in hand, I called the insurance company of the guy who smashed into me. They wanted to make a recorded statement of the accident - but the insurance agent seemed almost on the verge of admitting that they were liable, and would pay for the damages.

(As an incidental, the damage is either $1300.00, or it's totalled. The $1300.00 is if the frame can be unbent - if it can't be unbent, it's a loss. I was moderately freaked about this, until I discovered that on Craig's List, I could probably get a car of equivalent style and reliability to my own for about the blue book value of my current trusty steed. So, nil desperandum.)

During the course of the recorded statement, she asked me, "Have you ever been in any other accidents?"
"Car accidents, or any other accident at all?" queried I.
"Well, specifically automobile accidents, though any others as well."
"Well, yes, of course, I've been in an accident before. I've also been bitten by a venomous snake, shot, stabbed, fallen off of a mountain, run over by a tank, and had a tree fall on my head. Do you need details? Because it'll take a while."

She just laughed nervously and moved on to the next question.

dude likely the car is a lost cause if the a frame is bent even if they straighten it out it will never be the same. If they fix it get rid of it quick and I am serious. It wont be the same ever again.

According to the second estimate I got today, it's definitely repairable - even if the frame is bent (and he thinks it isn't) it's not bent much .. just pushed in on one corner. He says that's easily fixable.

So, basically, it looks like I'll get my car repaired.
