You are in the Scion tC
What is this discussion about?
Scion tC, Convertible

now, do you know if your car insurance rates will rise because of this?
BTW-your tC looks great once again! And to have all of that snow and ice off of it helps, too.

I'm still thinking about suing the kid for the deductible with a lawyer?
Lets see here; my car's value decrease due to being in accident (no matter what), my rates are going to increase, there's possibility that my car's safety isn't the same and if I'm another accident down the road; I can get seriously hurt. All this because some dumba$$ kid couldn't wait for ONE second!

accidents are such a big pain in the rear. You might consider suing the kid, or just chalk it up to bad experiences and move on. Still, it does get ya to wonderin', huh?

It's really up to my insurance company? If they sue, I'm not. If they don't, I'm going to.
I'm not going to be greedy about this one bit. BUT I do feel that I'm entitled to not pay for my $500.00s.
State of Wisconsin clearly states: "You are not entitled to have insurance unless the automoble is financed. BUT YOU ARE REQUIRED TO PAY FINANCIAL"

Yesterday, we were lucky to have beautiful 60 degree day. So I spent good amount in my car with the windows down. Hour and half later, I see a rock chip on the driver's side windshield. Get home, not one, not two, not three BUT FIVE rock chips! Apparently, I was behind a car that picked up some rocks and they threw right onto the windshield AND my new hood making nice rock chip into the paint!
Then I go visit my sister's. She lives in a city that has "Red Light Photo" intersections. I happened to be coming to one. Stale green light. I wanted to turn left. So I stop before the stop line. I'm yielding traffic then I see a van. Okay, here's my chance to turn during rush hour. Then these two small economical cars follow behind while I'm about to gun it. I notice the light turning yellow so I slammed on the brakes. Red light comes. I'm sitting there watching "Two" flashes occur while I'm noticing I'm about half of foot over the line.
See this what happens when you are very careful driver after having accident last month and trying your damnest to void another....

have got to go! I don't know anyone that likes them. All they are are revenue-generators for the cities/counties that employ them.
The other day while traveling on an old dirt road leading over the Dragoon Mountains and eventually to historic Tombstone, AZ, these yahoos go flying past us(they were coming at us very fast on the rocky dirt road in an old Ford pickup that was raised a bit high) and Bam! A rock was thrown at our windshield. I looked at the shield after they got totally away from us and the dust had cleared. No speck or star left on there. What the?
Couldn't believe it! You can get paint sticks for the little ships on your car's paint job. I have one in Rally Red for my Lancer GTS' paint chips. The Mitsubishi dealer charged $10.00 for it but I haven't gone out there yet to see how it works. Good project for this week off from work that started yesterday morning.
Hope things start getting better for you and Bullitt!

"To get Summer rims & Summer tires or to get Summer BF Goodies and header or tint windows?" I'm getting my returns this week.......
These are the "Winners!"
Tenzo R DC-5 with red stripe. Don't know how much the tire shop is going to charge? If I buy tires now and wait on the wheels. They will switch out the TPMS and tires from the OEMs place on these. I'm sticking with 17 inches.
Yeah I know about dealers can order OEM touch up. Carmax only charges me $7.50 & tax! LOL
Speaking Carmax; they had this Lancer in Florida for sale.
Nice "black out" EVO! I would name him "Jaws!"
Like I said before. I could of bought a new '05 RS Rally Red for $24,000-ish at my brother's dealer. But this stole my heart....
It's lovely to know the car you just bought doesn't get off their inventory until 24 hours later. I stole the pic before they took it off the site.

that you have a pic of Bullitt right on the sales lot. I'd pay more than a few bucks to have a pic of my '08 Lancer GTS in Rally Red still in Avondale Mitsubishi's showroom!

The morning after when I bought it. I was doing my daily online and happened to accidently hit the link on IE when the link was in "histories." My car that I bought about 12 hours ago was STILL on Carmax.com? LOL So I downloaded the best one (Which was that one.) That maroon tC behind Bullitt is what I WANTED but since it was manual and the sales consultant was too much "Mothering" me by saying "No, since you don't know how to drive manual. "
Anyway, I finally installed my new brakes! Took my cousin about 20 minutes each axle.
They were nice and new BEFORE I went to the car wash LOL

fresh brakes. Excellent!
My '08 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS at 32,595 miles has never had any brake work...yet that is.
