Goodbye Old Car - Hello New Car!!


ell... So how did my weekend go? Funny you should ask...

I am soooooooooooooooo pissed..... I mean REALLY pissed.

Saturday morning started out like so many other mornings... however by lunchtime that would all change. I am driving up 45, minding my own business, heading towards the San Pedro Social Club event that I wrote about on Friday... when all of a sudden, this dumb shit yahoo in a pickup decided to cut in front of me. He was on the left and me in the middle lane. Normally, it wouldn't be a problem but this guy wasn't quite fully in front of me when he cut over. The back of his truck caught my left fender... I'm not even sure he knew he hit me.

However, it started me in a spin... the car behind me couldn't stop in time and he plowed into my right side... and pushed me into Mr. Yahoo. The ONLY reason Mr. Yahoo is alive and didn't get shot by me was the fact I was trapped in my car.

Several things went through my mind. Kill Mr. Yahoo, am I going to Heaven or Hell, shoot Mr. Yahoo. Luckily I had my seatbelt on and my bags deployed like they were suppose to deploy. I always wondered about that... but they did. At first I couldn't see because there were bags all over the place... went they went down I realized how lucky I was to be alive. That's when thoughts of "kill, kill and more kill" started flooding my mind.

Fast forward after the cops got me out of the car... Mr. Yahoo was sitting on the side of 45 looking as if he didn't have a care in the world or a clue what happened. Can you spell DRUNK? I think he was a bit started when I ran, without my cane over to him with my fist clenched. I guess lucky for me and him a cop grabbed me. A trip to the hospital for the excrusiating pain in my neck and back, a call to my attorney, car insurance, etc I got home thanks to one of the cops.

Everyone involved was medically fine... I think the guy in back of me also had major pain in his neck and back... amazingly the yahoo had insurance.

Anyway... it's funny... believe it or not I practically never wear my seatbelt. I'm petrified of being trapped in my seatbelt and the car catching on fire and blowing me up. But for some unknown reason yesterday I hooked it on. I think God knew what was going to happen.

So, I spent my Sunday looking for a new car since my really nice Bonneville got creamed. Above is what I decided on getting. It's a really cool looking Chevy Blazer. I was getting too old for my cool looking Bonneville anyway. I'll go pick the Blazer up today since they had a few things to do on it. They were nice and gave me a 2005 Tempest to drive around.
