Bus killed my Car today!
For those that were at the Horizons Bash in Ripley this year may have remembered me bringing my little car along when it was raining (how funny that was considering I live 2 miles away), well today I get a call from Dad and he doesn't sound happy and I'm starting to think the worst you know Family Friends etc.
He then tells me to sit down he then says Nicole is dead, Nicole is my little 2000 Renault Clio Initial 16v 5 Door with FULL everything, Leather Interior Alloy Bonnet, Boot and Roof Composite Wings and HID projection lights (just like my bike), I could have cried. Did she die the death of a stolen and driven to the edge motor vehicle before ending up in a field upside down a REAL cars death, but NO a BIG RED DROKING TRENT BARTON BUS, drove into her while she was parked up and ripped off her rather attractive front end, and pushed her up a 6inch curb.
At least I’m fully insured but before I left I spent about £800 in getting her kitted out with new Coils Tires and Exhaust, just so that I actually had a reason to come back home at some point and not stay away forever. I will really miss the car as it fitted just as good as the Dakar does, Speedy, Handles Great through the Corners, it’s looks where understated until you tried to beat it off the line, and always started first time every time.
I’m feeling really gutted right now.
I will post a picture or two as soon as Dad sends then, I thought that all I had to worry about on the road was things that happened to me which to a degree are controllable, but I guess life is cruel in its many ways.
So a new rule goes into the book Insure everything that you leave at home that matters to you.
