Hot stuff

My dream car is the Tesla Roadster, the electric sports car that is the sexiest and safest thing around.

I find it interesting that the Roadster's end appearance from that accident was very similar to my little Solstice, which also sacrificed itself so that we could walk away unharmed. Check it out:

The Tesla

and my late RSOL

Cars are built to protect us these days.

And now I find out that when that lottery ticket comes in, my Jbird can get a matching pick-up truck!


Oh WHEEEE.. excitement at work.. a fire in the dumpster! Funny, there was one last year when I was temping at LMH as well.
Don't look at me that way!

I'd LOVE to have a Tesla-they look so cool!

My best walk-away story is about my PT Cruiser (hell, 2/3rds of my wreck stories are from my Cruiser!). I was driving over to McPherson to pay the taxes and get the plates for my baby. We'd bought it less than six months earlier, and it barely had 3600 miles on the car. I met a Cougar who turned in front of me. I swerved just enough to miss his back tire (and the oncoming car who had been tailgating him), and the nose of the PT picked his car up and spun it 180. I had just enough time to think "OHSHIT!" hit the brakes, and BAM.

Air bags really stink, and they throw powder all over the car. But DAMN, do they do their job. I had my seat belt on, but didn't even get a scratch. And while the passenger side front quarter panel of the car was really ripped up, the rest of the car was untouched.

I needed a new bumper, front nose, hood, quarter panel, headlight assembly, a new mirror, a new tire/wheel & axle on that side, and air bags, etc., but no glass broken, no frame repairs needed. It didn't even take out my radiator or my A/C.

That car went through 3 more wrecks before we sold it. Two of the cars on the other side got totaled. One was a Buick Roadmaster.

PT Cruisers are baby Sherman tanks.

Lawdy! I guess so!
