Default Try not to cry...

So upon returning from lunch with my friend (he was letting me drive his 300zx) i noticed that my car seemed to be parked awfully cockeyed next to the curb. I didn't remember parking so horribly, and as i got closer i noticed that the rear end was smashed in rather nicely. Apparently the girl who hit my car was rounding the turn when her starbucks fell out of the cupholder and spilled on the floor of her honda civic hatch. She brilliantly decided to reach down and **** with it instead of driving (excellent decision) and when she looked up there was my car no brakes no evasion just full on smackage. So there it sitswhile im dealing with the insurance to get my claim dealt with. Feel for me fellow miata brethren and be careful where you park your car! (should be back soon with another miata)

Wow dude, that looks painful!

Nothing worse than an oblivous driver...good luck with the insurance company. Just know that it should buff right out!

Best of luck!
Cheers,
Matt

another miata, that will buff out...just put some elbow grease into it...

just do what scott did, and also remember that you can negotiate with the ins.. co. they never offer enough the first time, just ask for more and threaten with lawyers if they say no...this was pure neglegence, and you should be compensated for your lost time and emotional suffering...muahaha

FFS, stupid starbucks bitches.. God. I hope her shitty honda is totaled too. At least you know who did it instead of a hit and run.

If her insurance company tries to screw around, just file a lawsuit directly against the girl...she is responsible when it comes down to it, regardless of her insurance-she could have killed someone making a STUPID decision like that. If no one had insurance, I can damn well bet you most people would be MUCH more careful drivers, people just say "oh, I have insurance, I can drive like an idiot"...

You know I tend to agree with this for the most part, but sometimes **** does happen.

When its negligence on this level I think she should have to pay her insurance company back for some of the damages. Seriously she should've known better. Whats worse, having a coffee stain on your floor or totaling your car and likely killing someone else?? FFS!!

okay, besides the busted a-arms in the rear, how does the attachment points for the subframe look?

Honestly, I don't think that is as bad as it looks!

She was not hot she was actually rather dumpy, don't know about repairing it, maybe but, looks like some **** may have gotten bent. And I've said before this happened and more so after, licenses need to be harder to get in America, they are difficult to get in Europe it should be the same here. As was preached to me so much during my drivers training "Driving is a privilege and not a right" heres some more gory shots (oh yea she said she was doing about 25mph which with no braking seems about right F=MA)

still hard to tell from that shot. the whole rear subframe can be replaced independent of the rest of the body. so if the body itself is straight, you might just need a rear subframe, a bumper, and a rear quarter.

Believe me, I've seen worse!
