    I’ve been working my ass off trying to get my 32 ready for the Round Up...

    Just disgusted...

    I was half way through the intersection when the girl started coming towards me, she was staring at her phone the whole time and didn’t even look up until she hit me!...

    That just happened to Sir Woosh a few weeks back...

    The powers that be in this state made talking on the cell a secondary-finable offense-$25 fee.
    That's not enough of a punishment for the potential of what could happen....

    That's sad to seen when almost 80 year old metal makes it this far intact and nice just to have some idiot ruin it. I guess that's what agreed value insurance is for...

  12. That sucks. Nice looking 32, though. And like Dubbzilla says, maybe you can put the ins money towards other cool stuff if there's any extra after the repairs.

    That is such a shame, and the worst nightmare for all of us who drive our hot rods. Just yesterday morning I was sitting at a light turning left, and when mine turned green I started to pull out. I was half way through the intersection and this guy coming from my right blew straight through the red light at high speed. It wasn't like his light just turned red, there is that 4 second delay before mine turns green and mine was green for a few seconds before I pulled out, so he REALLY went through on solid red.

    If someone had been turning from the turn lanes facing me they would have been creamed bad. This cell phone, texting thing has got to become a major focus for lawmakers, with extremely stiff fines and penalties, or we are all doomed. In many ways it is as serious, if not more, than drunk driving, because more people do it.

    Sorry about your hot rod, hope you get it fixed really fast.

    They should install cell phone jammers in all cars. You can only use a cell phone when you park and step away from the car. Hope she has good insurance.

    Get the insurance adjuster to look it over and take all his notes and photos and then pull it out enough to hit the road and go.

    I see so much of that driving while having a phone up to the ear or looking down at a phone screen around here that I always worry. It's a $100+ fine here and they still do it. Outside of the WSP the cops don't care unless they can use it as an excuse to see who and what is in the car.

    Man, that really sucks and I know how infuriating it can be, but please don't let it stop you from bringing that beauty to the Round Up! We'd all feel cheated if we don't get to see it...

    That's a bummer man, ya got my sympathy! Don't know what the law reads in Louisiana, but here in Oregon it's a definite no no. One way or the other, I hope you made certain the constabulary were made aware of what she was up to! ...and, though I have my doubts, I hope she's present enough in the real world to comprehend [after the fact] just why the accident occurred, and the potential ramifications of said bad habit! If she's got a brain in her noggin, she has to know she got off really easy this time! Glad you weren't injured!
     
  19. I was afraid to open this thread for fear of seeing crumpled sheet metal,,it's not as bad as it could have been but it does suck,,cell phones should be ban and driving with one in your hand should carry a heavy fine.

    As bad as it is you could pound out a lot of the damage or drive the car as a hi boy for a while,,I wish you all the best in getting a settlement that will take care of the damage. HRP

    Damn, so sorry to hear this. I too was rear-ended by a 16-yo girl. She admitted to the cop that she was texting. Ruined my Sierra PU, totaled her mom's new Audi.

    I gave up riding motorcycles because of this nonsense. The risk outweighs the reward by a country mile.
     
  23. Sorry about your wreck. Ultimately it's just sheetmetal though.

    You have a Deuce 5wd and you're alive to repair it.

    It's all relative.

    People just don't give a damn. It sickens me to see this happen and I hope you can some how make the LSRU. I see it every day. That and texting. I've come so close to just stopping my car, getting out and smashing that shit! But, it seems the law frowns on that.

    At work, I've stood in the hall way and have people texting walk into me! (I'm a little trouble maker on my floor.) I give them a few words of advise and they walk off texting again.

    It astounds me that organizations like the ACLU, will protect peoples right to be a selfish, reckless A-HOLE.
     
  25. Bummer ! flick the fenders off and drive it while you sort the insurance etc.

    Here in New Zealand it is illegal to use a cell phone while driving, $400 fine and from memory it's 35 demerit points on your licence ( 100 pts you're walking) .

    You were blessed. I had a buddy a few years back that lost his life to a woman on a cell phone. I travel quite a lot with my job and see it all the time.

    That sucks bro...
     
  28. Seems a lot of people are assuming it is just fender damage ... hopefully that is the case. I'd say get any pics needed for the insurance claim, then pop off the fender, beat it straight(ish) to the best of your ability and reinstall ... insert key, top up tank and hit the road.

    Then, after the accident the offender says, 'why are you so mad, it's just an old car'.:mad:
