On my way home for lunch today. Its about 3 miles round trip while setting at a stop sign. ON my street a cool cat driving a 76 plymouth ass-pern sings way wide in his left hander and POW. My freshly waxed-ready for vacation-hotrod gets creamed -$4600.11 later thanks very much.

Oh my how awful Did he have insurance? Look at it this way as long as no one was hurt the car can be fixed 100% at a GOOD body shop. Think positive!! remember all the nasty littlerock chips and maybe scratches and road wear?? Now all will be gone and new looking again :) Make there insurance Co. pay for a rental car for your vacation.

Sorry about that guy. Look at the bright side, I hope he had insurance. Looks like he took a Connecticut Left. Those lefts are the ones that we take so that we do not have to step on the brake.

Damn bud

So very sorry for your loss. As other here have said, it can be replaced...but I know that doesn't help right here, right now. We figure that any problem that we can throw money at and it goes away isn't a real problem. Have fun on your vacation anyway.

none right now :(
Corvette comparable rentals stink!

Sorry to hear about the hit... My LT4 CE is in the shop right now after some idiot rear ended me (it has been there for a week, and I won't get it back probably for another week).... The bad news about having a corvette in the shop is the Corvette is a 'compact car' in the rental car world... At least it doesn't look too bad... My guess is you will get your car fixed before I get mine fixed... the Chevy dealer here is slower than you could ever imagine.

Be happy. Our last "like" rental for a Subaru Legacy GT sedan was a Ford Focus sedan or a Buick Century. Gah.

I did force my former Subaru dealer once to get us a Chevy Blazer as like rental when my Outback was in the shop. They wanted to give us soemthing like a Neon for a family of four taking a 4-day trip. Not... and it was the dealer's incompetency that had my car in there in the first place. True story - they kept it from before Memorial Day until after Labor Day, minus one week in July when I had it long enough to realize they'd fixed zippo. And it *still* doesn't run right.
