My '85 got wrote off today...

This happened two months ago but it didn't really sink in until I had to sign over the title to the insurance company today. I thought sharing it here might make me feel better...or something...I don't know.

Was an '85 Turbo, 30K actual miles, didn't even have it a year and had just finally gotten it running properly about a month before this happened. I've still got a mix of emotions bouncing around in my head but mostly I'm thankful to have walked away. The guy plowed his silverado into me sitting at a stop light while going around 45mph, knocking me under the car in front and then pushing the two of us into the lead car.

All I've got left is the OEM floormats, the Z badge from the front, and a handful of spare parts.

Wow, what a bummer! That car is finished. Sad to see something with such low miles bite the dust all these years later. But I'm glad you're safe, like the other poster said. You can always buy another one.
