fogie BS: car dameged by unknown SOB (31) RE: BS: car dameged by unknown SOB 20 Nov 03

Thanks for the support- puts minor damage into perspective. McGrath reminded me of a sports car I loved dearly ,a nd was wiped out by a sleepy driver on a motorway heading out of liverpool. It meant a lot to me and I was angry and sad that I was only offered 4000 for it, and waved goodbye to it leaving on a trailer as a write off. I'd just resigned myself to the events when I was rung up by a guy with a west indian accent asking me how he was supposed to start the car ( I had fitted an engine cut-out on the steering block) I was very upset ant told him it wasn't my problem ,but he wouldnt let it go,and after 5 minutes of hassle I told him I'd handed my jack-plug type key in with the ignition keys. Now that really upset me. I'd asked my insurance company if they would possibly try to fix the car, but they insisted it was a write-off, and then some SOB has sold it on, and the new owner traces me and my phone number- and I'm ex-directory. I still havent come to terms with it. My car that started this thread off was its direct replacement.
