ok, while were at it, i might as well share my stories.
Story A - Car #1 - 2000 Ford Escort Zx3 - May 2002 (age 16 & 3 months)
I had just finished a 11-7 midnight shift at tim hortons, driving around at 7 o´clock, i was not the least bit tired, so i cruised round, then headed to Beinfait (bout 10 km away) everything was fine, we went hunting for a while, then around noon, we made our way back for subs, we took 2 vehicles. He was in the lead, i was behind. It began to rain, wasnt bad rain, but wet the roads. I had switched lanes, and not thinking (maybe due to being tired) i snapped the wheel back straight and when i did, my back end just kept on goin. Into a fishtail i was sent, till finally, i hit the ditch sideways. All i could see was road-dirt-road-dirt-road-dirt till i finally settled on my roof in the middle of the divided highway. I had looked around, no airbags off, but Blink 182 was still playing, so i turned it off, reached for my seatbelt, and WHAM! fell 6 inches onto my face (only funny part) luckily the rear driver window busted out and i crawled out to see my cousin running down the highway towards me and many a car coming to a halt. I was not hurt in the incident, but the car was totalled off.
Story B - Car #2 - 1995 Ford Escort GT - Jan 2003 (age 16 & 11 months)
School had just let out, and my carpool dropped me off at home, and we sed we would goto Dairy Queen for coffee in a couple minutes. So i decided to cruise around for a couple minutes till they got ready, i had passed Dairy Queen and saw non of my friends were there, so i proceeded to Brandon´s house (friend to meet), i was turning the corner (green light) and wasn´t going terribly fast, bout 40 km/h when from behind a large black SUV came a large old van, RIGHT in front of me, i slammed on the brakes only to slide into the front corner of this bahemeth of a van, shattering my front end and exploding both air bags, i was wearing my seatbelt and did not even touch the airbags, but my wrist was on the steering wheel and was rashed by the bag coming out, once again, i sat there, looked around, turned off Blink 182 AGAIN! walked out to see my car in thousands of peices on the road. After swearing a couple times, i proceeded to punch my horn to get it from stop blaring. I tried to start my car, it turned over a few times till it died, i then pushed it off to the side, with once again another totalled car.
So my grand total so far is
$12900 - Focus
$ 8900 - Escort
$22000, but from SGI i ended up getting $24000 back (good deal)
So now i am age 17 & 1 month, 1993 Red Ford Escort GT, and i just wonder what fate has in store for me
So buckel up, drive smart, and dont total cars :-]
