yeah I was just talking to FRT_fun about that whole plan. Good thing I am in the south rt now (rust free cars FTW).

If anyone has any advice on how this all should pan out, please chime in... this is my first crash and have lots of cash in this car that won't be covered.

he was going about the speed limit (it seems) which is 35mph... he blazed right throught the red. what really pisses me off is that there was a car already stopped at the light so 1 )it blocked my view of him coming and 2) HOW DID HE GO PASSED A STOPPED CAR AND STILL NOT REALIZE THE LIGHT WAS RED?!?!?!?

If my green car were ever totaled I'd end up with a gutted, caged, aero replacement.

Wait, does the insurance company have possession of the car or something? Get it back IMMEDIATELY and put it in a storage unit if you have to.

It is at a tow yard, I told him earlier to get it towed back to where he is staying at as fast as possible.

pretty much what I did, had enough leftover to buy upgrades during the part swaps.

You're joking around an awful lot for a guy whose modified car is sitting in an unprotected tow lot. Seriously, go there right now and get it out. Tow yards are to aftermarket parts what the dryer is to your socks.

I have no car. All of the rental car places are closed. I have no where to put the car. I have no choice but to wait a day or two... I am just happy I am ok and am trying to keep my mind off of crap, for now.
