The Story

Recommended Posts

Darn Pat, my condolences, I know how much that car meant to you, even though you treated it like your bastard child. Things will work out ok though for you, they always do (for a while at least). If you need anything I'm only a short drive away and would be willing to help out.

First, thanks for all the support guys. I appreciate it.

I don't think the car will turn out totalled. It'll get fixed, and I'm probably just going to keep driving it as long as I can. That was my original plan with the car, even though things like insurance cost make it tempting to go another direction.

One thing I did'nt take note of in my original post is the brakes on the car. I don't like them at all [Mintex red box pad, Zimmerman X-drilled rotors]. They're okay for street driving, but for how I like my brakes they don't suit me [bad initial bite]. I'm not sure how much better brakes would have helped though. Ironically last week I was thinking about all the money I have been saving up for the 240, and blowing it on Stoptechs instead.

I said it last night, and I'll say it again man, I'm sorry :( Minivans strike again...

I did more damage in my accident though, knocked that van off it's tires and shattered some glass!

That really is unfortunate. Your car is among all time my favorite V70s. Good luck getting it fixed.

monkey.

Had the car towed to the bodyshop.

They said the passenger side framrail might be tweaked because of the fender angle. If that's the case, it's totaled.

:(

Oh hellz no! I really hope it doesn't come to that. At leasy you know you can make a buttload of money parting it if that happens

I'm not parting it out. BTDT.

If it's totaled, I'm collecting insurance money, buying it back and I'm just gonna sell it as-is.
