damn, just played a basketball game and decided to go have another look at the car, i figured maybe its not as bad as it first seemed................ i was wrong, 98% sure it will be a write off, it was only a 1984 honda prelude, but it drived sensationally. Had missed only about 5 services in its life (seriously). I bought it of the first owner, and it was in prefect original condition.

At least i still have my other car (the one i stopped driving because i couldnt efford it) my 1990 Ford "Fairlane of Funk". Dad reconds ill only be getting about $1000 or so, as when he insureded it, i put down the cost of the car was $2000 and that was 2 years ago now.

Sorry if no one care, but im just bloody fuming!!!! So i thought i should vent instead of using the details he gave me for acts of retrebution.

Commiserations Kman.
I sorta know how you feel. There are only five material possessions I really care about.
My brewery and equipment (including keg fridge), my car, my house and my home theatre projection system.
In the last week, my keg fridge and my projector have died.
Keg fridge is being replaced, but it is going to take longer to transition in a new projector :angry:

That is what I thought.
I had vertical lines appear and a slightly compressed picture horizontally. Switched between modes (video, s-video) etc and it was the same on all.
Change inputs to see if it was the source (foxtel, dvd) etc and the same.
I had another bulb so changed it and the same.
The room was cold so turned on the aircon and when things heated up she seemed to be alright.
But alright for how long ? It is slowly dieing :angry:
It has given me good service for five years so time for a new one. Unfortunately it isn't the top of the family capital expenditure priority list :(

I feel your pain Kman. I've been through a number of cars, all of which were not my fault.

I got my first car stolen and written off (in a cop chase mind you so she went out in a blaze of glory!). That was a '76 Escort in smick condition, as was yours. Sad to see it destroyed.

Bought a replacement with the insurance pay out, a nice VH commodore-just standard but once again absolutely A1. Had that for 3 weeks after my stolen one then it was hit in the packing spot where my old car was stolen from by a drunk driver who had a mate on his bonnet doing a bit of bonnet surfing. They were gunning it and came around the corner and the guy on the bonnet fell over (still on bonnet) and the driver couldn't see where he was going and swung too wide on the corner and hit my car. Sandwiched it between 2 other cars, guy on the bonnet flew 20m down the road and only had a bit of gravel rash on his hands (how I don't know? :( ). Another write off.

Bought a replacement, got all my bumpers and side strips stolen.

Sold and bought another one. Just recently I caught this little pissed bloke doing a flying kick through my drivers side window at 3am. I piss bolted outside and scruffed his mates so I could get the little b@$t@rd to pay and his mates ran and hid in my house because he came out with a meat cleaver and a 12" carving knife saying "I sorry, I sorry". The length of stainless pipe I quickly grabbed was enough to persuade him not to come any closer (he was trying to come inside my house) until the cops arrived-while he still had the knifes-it was cool, the s$%t went down.

My sympathies kman. I feel like me and cars just dont mix. Maybe you could spend the insurance money on brewing gear and just walk from now on ;).

Cheers, Justin
