..said he hardly touched her



well he hardly did really......the car tho he hit like senna liked walls :rolleyes:

did his van have one of those ramming points found on ancient greek triremes stuck to its front? cos that'd explain the huge shunt damage off a "low speed" hit :pancake:

you have to really ask yourself something when you consider trying to insult me.. do I really seem like the type of person who gives a flying shite covered monkey F*ck about your pointless comment?.. I'll save your deminished intellect the struggle..that'd be a "No"
Anything can be made to fit.... thats what hammers are for silly!
All posts are the view of the writer and not necessarily that of..... actually no, I dont really give a flying flame toasted turd, dont read my posts if you dont like em R-tard.
no one can accuse me of being "two-faced", Ill call you a nob behind your back and to your face... the latter preferably so I can watch you uselessly blow your lid
being directly honest with your opinion may not make you well liked but it will get you appreciated by the worthwhile few with the sense to understand.... Id rather be appreciated for who I am than liked for what I'm not.

one rear qauter panel bent....... the insurance wont even bother sending anyone out, they'll write it off over the soddin phone.

not many companies left that wont write a escort off for a bit of burd shite landing on the bonnet nowadays....we own dying breeds.

Improved the back end greatly...

Torque from a TD plus a possible fully laden 3.5Tonne van... that could have been low speed. Escort would just crumble from a slight ramming from a van like that...

Still, I hope there's no injuries other than £3k worth of "whiplash" :thumb:

I suppose your right saying not much speed needed ... Not sure if he was loaded ... Assessor coming out tomorrow to look at car but I already told them it'll be written off ... The wife is well stiff today though ... Roll on the settlement

I saw some relatively clean mid milage (70000'ish) Gti's on autotrader the other night around the 700 mark, might be time to cut the cord and grab yourself a 3dr :thumb:
