my 18 year old son , Ethan had a minor accident with my Impala as he hit a patch of black ice and skidded head first into a curb, I was in the passenger seat and made sure he was okay and he backed the car out and we continued to his destination. when we got there I got out to look the fog light had popped out and the bumper was cracked as well as the inner fender skirt and lower air dam, all in all it didn't look too bad, until.......I took it in for inspection it passed emission but failed safety because the subframe is cracked and dented it's in the body shop now 1450.00 in damage then our tenant called and said the townhouse had no heat, dispatched a repairman who determined the heat pump was shot, 5700 tomorrow and both outside compressor and inside air handling units will be replaced this is the third time for these turds in 23 years of owning the home.... averaging 7-8 years before they fry, finally Kim smelled gas in her basement office at home, again called the gas company they dispatched a tech who found several leaks at joints and one major at the meter where the line goes into the house so, they dig and found a rotted pipe--gas is shut off yesterday a plumber came out and inspected the gas piping he found several sections that need replacement (house is almost 50 years old) so tomorrow 2800 will get all the piping replaced and the gas turned back on, so, there's a 9,900.00 hit to our budget---goodbye to my Corvette fund and the car for a few more years now,..........someday! but hey, Happy New Year!!!  Embarrassed Undecided Sad Smiley

Aww bummer Chris.  Cry
If anyone deserves a Corvette it's you.
I wish I was rich, I'd buy you one.
WAIT!!! I don't have one yet either. Cheesy
Hopefully that will change after we sell our house and get settled into wherever we're gonna be.

Sorry to hear about all the bad luck Chris...to bad you don't live closer I have a good friend that has installed heating & air units for me over the years & he's honest &,dependable & reasonable plus a all around great guy. I think all young people should start out driving tanks Huh I don't even want to think about all the crashes & damages my 2 did....mostly not there fault. Even had a few mexicans destroy some of my cars ...no insurance is normal. I finally got smart & demanding there cars be towed & I owned them for the damages then all of a sudden insurtance paper were produced & they learned english in a few minutes Roll Eyes

I was there visiting when your daughter had an accident and you had to leave. If I recall, that one wasn't her fault.
