So there I am, @ about 7:30pm, sitting @ home in my bedroom, minding my own business. I was on the net, listening to the Adam Carolla podcast on iTunes, when suddenly I hear a large BOOM sound, and then a car alarm, which sounded suspiciously like my car alarm. I run out to the front door to shut off the alarm and there’s a bunch of neighbors standing around. Sure enough, it turns out that someone had driven by, smashed into my car, and drove off. The front left side is all fracked up.

I was parked right in front of my house, in the very spot where I’ve been parking everyday for the past 15 fracking years. No one else was hit, of course, just good ol’ me.

And, yes, this is the very same car that I spent $725 on a new radiator and tune-up last Sept, only for it to break down on me again in Dec, which cost another $100, then in Jan I spent a total of $464 for a new water pump and fuel pump, and then $196.32 to fix my brakes last month.

And, no, my insurance doesn’t cover this. All I have is Liability insurance, which would cover me if I crashed into somebody, but since this was completely not my fault & I have no idea who hit me I am, basically, screwed. Royally.

Good night.

    Time to get a new car, mate.

      Easier said than done. But, yes, necessary.

    At least you’re okay!

      Well, I’m okay physically. Don’t know about mentally.

    Looks like it’s mostly body damage. A new tire and some buffing on the door, with a new paint job, should fix it.

      I considered that. But I had someone look @ it and, considering what I’ve already spent on this car, which is 20 years old with over 163,000 miles on it, the price and trouble of fixing this frankly isn’t worth it anymore. So I’m going to look for a new one.

    I’m so sorry LeMar, are there any shops near you traffic light cams, store cams to see if maybe you can catch a glimpse of who hit you?

      Nada. It was just on a residential street, in front of my house, @ night. No one saw a thing.

    This is sad. What’s more important is that you aren’t hurt.

      Yeah, well, it’s been a rough few months since then, which is why I haven’t been updating my blogs, but I’ve got a new car now, and things are picking up, so I should back to my old routine in a few days.
