    yesterday morning i was in my 53 chevy pickup on my way to my buddy's shop. even though this truck is chopped, slammed and has alot of other body mods, it was my daily driver. so im doin about 30mph and outta nowhere i catch a glance of another vehicle flyin over peoples front yards to my right but heading toward me, i have just enough time to say WHAT THE FUCK!!! when this bitch heads right for me. she almost hit me headon but was more off to the passenger side of the truck. she took out the entire right side of the 53 and i was spun and ejected from the truck through the passenger door.the hat i was wearing was in the middle of the road where i was thrown out but i ended up on somebodys front lawn never touching concrete. i never lost consciousness,broke no bones, but did hurt my shoulder somehow. went to the hospital, had catscans, xrays, all checked out good.cant say the same for my truck. the cab and bed were both twisted and partially ripped from the chassis. the A pillar was ripped apart, the seat was ripped out, the rear was busted out at the leaf spring.chassis obviously bent,front wheel busted rear tire torn up, etc etc...found out later in the day she was arrested for bein drunk.WHO THE FUCK IS DRUNK AT 7 AM??? i was also told she was goin about 70mph when she hit me. well anyway today im a little sore all over but at least im here to tell you guys about it.everybody who seen it or heard about it,tells me i cheated death. if thats true than i guess a big thanks goes out to whoever was watchin over me.ill try to post pics when i get some. im kinda shitty with the computer, can somebody direct me on posting pics? thanks for listening. over and out!!!

    So, You're okay, only that counts!
    It's sad about Your truck, but You are alive.

    By the way, wasn't there a thread just the other day about how unsafe old cars are and that You should look at them from far away?

    So what about a new car driven by a drunk idiot at 7 am in the morning? Is that safer?

    Shows, that the problem is always between the ears.

  5. Glad you're O K..Sorry to hear about your truck! It's ashame that our lawmakers have taken the attitude against smokers and ban smoking everywhere and tax tobacco out the ass,but do nothing about alcohol.I,personally,would rather meet a smoker coming down the road than a DRUNK!

    I guess her shift on the pole at the strip club ended at 4 and she had a few drinks, then headed home. Damn bitch. Just glad your ok! I hope she had insurance.....?? And if she did, get the fatest estimate you can to fix it. And sue her ass too!!!!
  20. Considering you got hit, you're extremely lucky. Truly lucky would have had her hitting a telephone pole in between her and you. In any case, buy a lottery ticket. Congratulations and best wishes for complete healing!

    thanks to everyone so far for the kind words!
  22. People that don't stop drinking until 6 AM... 70 mph... over people lawns... Chances are there were some other chemicals involved.

    That sucks, at least you weren't killed... I hope she had insurance...

    Glad you're going to be okay.
    If it was me, I'd make it my second job to be sure the courts didn't hand that drunk her license back, but I'm just a dick like that.
  24. glad you came out of that ok ..
  25. Sorry to hear about your truck, but glad you're still among us. I'm with Zerk about doing everything to keep her from getting her license back. F'n drunk drivers.

    Damn glad your here to tell us about this. Very sorry it happened as well..

    You sure did have something watching over you.

  28. Glad you lived to tell about it and apparently came away, for the most part, unscathed. Yeah she had better be using public transportation for the rest of her life and not putting anybody else in danger.

    Glad to hear that you're okay. Back in the day I didn't bust many that early in the morning, but enough for it not to surprise me when it happened. Just hope that she had insurance and that they don't try to bone you over the value of the truck. Always good to have an appraisal from someone who actually knows about our toys.
