Deemed a total loss.
I was coming home from work last night down past the malls. I just got done driving an employee home and was rushing home to use the facilities. I was thinking about stopping in at Best Buy, if I did I wouldn’t be telling you this story. Anyways, I was pulling up to some stopped traffic at a light. The weather was rainy all day. All of a sudden, I heard brakes lock up and I saw it in my rearview. A fairly new sedan closing in on me. I braced myself for impact. The force sent me forward into a Porsche Cheyene in front of me. Both airbags deployed and filled my car with a nasty smell. There was so much smoke and dust in the air, I thought Redman and Method Man were up in my car getting blazed.
My immediate concern before checking mysefl was my frisbees in the trunk. That is where I keep all my disc golf gear and a practice basket. I don’t know how they are doing, I couldn’t open the trunk. I’m heading to the garage that towed it this morning to claim my property. The car is more than likely totalled. See the pics below.
My favorite car I’ve ever own has finally hit 80,000 miles. This car is a 1998 Tornado Red Jetta Wolfsburg. The car should be well over 100k but it is not…obviously. The 5 mile commute to work really helped out on that. I’m hoping this ride lasts me a few more years before I can afford a diesel VW.
The car is in good shape except for the whole exhaust system I’ve been meaning to replace for the last 8 months. I’m sure the next thing to go will be my clutch. I will deal with that when I get to hit.
In honor of my Jetta hitting a minor milestone, I went to vw.com and built a new Jetta. They have the best build a car website, and at the end of the ordeal you can crash the car. You can crash it into a tree, a big ball of twine, or something else. Very fuckin’ cool.
