Default One less 10AE

I get rear-ended two Fridays ago. Car is considered totaled. So long future track car. Hope your parts get used well.

Next car is a Scion FR-S.

It actually isn't considered salvage since the damage was just enough to put it into the totaled section.

I put way to much money in this thing over the years and never got to finish it. I chose to retain it and sell it off to a local guy through John Long. It has a fully built engine with the head done up as well. Ohlins coilovers, one of the original BEGI S5 kits never installed, goodwin's bigbrake kit for all four corners, and lots of other things.

I did hit my head on the rollbar hard enough to need a staple. Got a nice concussion. I got lucky.

Looking forward to trying out the FR-S @ H2R.

Was your bar padded? If not - you seriously got lucky, unlike your 10AE, sorry to hear that.

No padding. Got lucky. I don't have any pics of either. I let it go yesterday so I could post up a pic of the wad of cash.

Working on it. My GOV cell doesn't let me take pics. I'll have to pull out the camera when I get home. It needs a bath though, it was on a car hauler for 1600 miles.
