    Well, right after work, picked up my new coil over set-up for the accord. Had my buddy in my car with me to go help him replace his tie rod on his old ladies van, waiting at a stop light and...***BAAAAMMMM***. Got plowed in the back by a Jimmy. Dude had to have been doing at least 35-40 mpg. My buddy and I were both good (except for some wicked ass whip lash), but the car is kinda screwed. The pictures do not justify it very much but looking under the car before it was towed away, the frame looked pretty jacked up. After the police interviewed the guy, the sheriff came back to me and said the guy was trashed. The ambulance driver was like "you didnt hear it from me but the guy blew a .162!!!!" WTF!!! Anywho, im done venting, here are the only pictures I snapped:

    My buddy and I are both going to press charges as much as possible, will update as everything happens. Hopefully they just total it out so I can buy a running crx for a DD :ph34r: Happy Easter!

    If both quarters and the rear end was tweaked they'll probably just total it out. No sense in paying to have the whole back half of a 13 year old accord cut off and replaced, then painted..

    Start rex shopping!

    Yeah the right one was pretty bad, the left one barely got touched, but looking underneath the car I could see the lower control arm was bent a little so I assume the worst. And yeah your right it is a 13 year old car so most likely they will just get rid of it, unless they want some outrageous amount for it, im going to buy it back for all the shit I have on it, or fix it up so its driveable.

    I have been shopping for crx's already, found one thats a beautiful gun metal color with rota slips and a mildly built b16 for 2800 :eek:. Need to see how much im going to get out this ass hat first

    nice

    You could just part the car out if you buy it back too. I pretty sure there alot of people out there still looking for accord stuff in that year. Transmission and engine more than like right away.

    yeah most likely whats going to happen, the exhaust was a really good sounding one, not obnoxious or anything from header back. fresh motor, wheel, brakes...so idk i kinda just want to fix it up AND buy another crx ^_^

    If it gets totaled out from bent body parts under the chassis, and jacked up quarter panels, I think it would be just better to sell out everything you can and use the extra cash from it to grab another project thats not all jacked up in the back. Nothing is worse then coming across a honda thats been all jacked in the back. 75% of the time from my experience, they never come straight again. Its your car, your decision though.

    You should see a neurospine specialist andmake sure you don't have any whiplash related problems. I heard of people getting whiplash, thinking they are fine, and having major spinal problems 5-10 years later, which of course, is too late to blame it on the accident.

    Oh we are, we are waiting until the business day to get a hold of a specialist. Like I said, the guy was trashed, so his insurance is going to cover everything that has to be done to me anyway.

    Fuck it. You should be like every other loser and try to squeeze $375k out of him for mental anguish and punitive damages.

    should have gotten an ambulance ride to the hospital from the scene of the crash
    just so it was on record
    they don't like to pay on "after thought" claims, as much as treatment from the get go...
    note to self for next time, hopefully there is never a next time though.
