Just got the V back from Epp & setting at a stoplight , There's this beat up old escort pulls up behind me & stops. As the light changes I start to move & !Bam. This lady says her foot slipped off the clutch. Well at least I'm lucky in that it's just cosmetic, Bumper have to be painted is all I need. Kinda scary though when you first feel the impact & don't know if you just got really screwed or not ?

Happen to me not too long ago, and one thing is for sure; the bumper is a lot stronger than that dif !!

*knock on wood* But if someone were to hit you good, I'd bet person who hit you's insurance agent would crap his pants followed by losing his job.

P.S. I was going to be in Greenwood this weekend, but that fell through and it sounds like I wouldn't have been able to see your machine anyway. Glad you and the car are alright.

P.S.S. Where are the pictures? We love em, good or bad.

You should have just revved your engine and the force of your exhuast would've sent that Escort flying. :lol:

:yup: Either your exhaust or just the sheer sound wave would keep all inbound idiots away from the beautiful beast.

Glad you are OK.
