I have only had my drivers license since 2003 and
I am 56.
I had a bad car accident in 2006,not my fault.I was
driving a 2003 toyota matrix.I loved that car and it was
great for a beginner driver.BUT...
Being, a snubbed-nosed car,when I hit the ford explorer,
the front end of my car was nearly sheared off.Another
12 inches and my engine might have been on my lap.
The airbag worked and when I came to a stop,I was Ok.
Out of instinct,I turned the ignition key off,I wondered
why the dash lights were still on.I got out of my car and
saw the explorer was upside down,with it's wheels in the
Then,I saw the other driver and I started yelling at him for
running the red light.Then he tried lying his way out of it.
Fortunately,I had a witness,the driver behind his car.
I won my case and now have my volvo.
I would look into getting a car that has a full chasis,like a
mercury,or crown victoria.A pre-ford volvo would be nice.
I had a woman back her van into my volvo.My car only
sustained cosmetic damage,she really messed up her
backend and tail lights,when she hit my car.
