..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:

Ouch, write off (in the eyes of insurance?)

 

15mph

 

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

assessor just been ... says he can get me £700 for it ..about 4 months tax left ..not worth buying back he said they'd charge me 5% ..so it would cost me £665 to buy back

 

 

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:

Damn, thats not bad at all. Will you be able to get the wheels off it first?
