This is a question Cars

"Here in my car", said 80s pop hero Gary Numan, "I feel safest of all". He obviously never shared the same stretch of road as me, then. Automotive tales of mirth and woe, please.

Exhaust gone on my car. Arrange to borrow dad's wheels to get me to the station in the morning. He can get my exhaust changed and then leave mine and take his. It is winter and the sun is very low in the sky. BANG. I never saw the skip. Must have hit it with some force though as I spun it 90 degrees. Near side of dad's car is back to the B pillar. Insurance quotes were fun for a few years. My Fiesta was worth a couple of thousand pounds tops. Dad's was a Ford Tourneo with wheelchair lift.
There was always a gap of a few seconds after I told them how big the claim was.

S'only a car though
I'm sure that after seeing the damage, your Da'd be grateful that he still had you in one piece. Parents tend to see things that way.

One of those times you want them to have a go at you especially as it meant mum couldn't go out easily till they had another accesible vehicle.

How much was....
the claim worth? I once had a crash in a brand new Clio 1.2 and wrote it off...the next year I bought an Alfa and was quoted £4300 to insure it :)

£16,000. Dad's insurance was over a grand for several years after.
