So, after quite literally a decade of J-body ownership, a drunk driver ended it all.
I miss my 90RS 2.2 the cheapest, most reliable vehicle I ever owned, and sold.
Bought with 100k miles, sold at 125k miles. They guy who bought it is still driving it today and rolled 225k on it with only a shift solenoid replacement.
Then was the 99Z. The prettiest J I owned. It was Cayenne red with bronze wheels. Light aesthetic mods like "carbon" tails and clear corners, debadged and the like, this car looked sharp. I miss it so.
Bought at 70k miles, sold at 125k miles. The guy who bought it immediately went to the drag strip and after six months of thrashing the car like a tiwaneese whore, blew it up, and sold it to someone who turned it into a "hornet" or a 4 cyl dirt track car. Made me sad.
Finally was my 04 LS sport coupe. Purchased in 2007, light mods, and from 25k to 120k mostly worry free miles, it will be missed.
Sunday March 27th 2011, a drunk driver hit it at midnight while it was parked in front of my house. He then hit my house and did doughnuts in my front yard while trying to run from the accident. It was like watching an episode of COPS on my front lawn. He hit hard enough to bend the rear axel, and push my car 8ft down the road, then four foot sideways. For those keeping track, that means he hit my car from the back, then backed off of it, and hit it again on the side pushing it into my yard. He had no insurance. This wasn't his first DUI. Can anyone say felony?
So, it is with a heavy heart that I bid the community farewell.
I have replaced my LS with an 06 Audi A3 2.0T 6spd.
My insurance co. took care of the replacement. I had to cover the deductible and am waiting for a reimbursement. I'm deciding weather i can or cannot sue... more what I can sue for.
Hate to hear that, i hope you can sue the hell out of him,at least you replaced it with another sweet ride
