I drove home from a business trip in my SSEi back on Decemeber 2nd, picked her car up for service and on my way (within 1/2 mile of my home) hit 2 deer then a tree.. killed the deer -- tree didn't look too good either. I crawled out the rear, passenger side window and walked to my house to call a wrecker (OnStar did communicate - I told them i was OK -- which i was fine other than a bloody nose -- couldn't find my phone though!) As you can see, it was totalled -- insurance gave us full retail on it (which was very good since it was an '05 with 58k on it and purchased in Nov '04) -- Went up to Newport News VA this past Monday, and replaced it with a new hotrod.. Really wished my '06 STS-V had HUD and ACC!!!

Thanks for the support -- I was shaken up that night, and it was dark, and I had walked in the freezing cold back to my house so i didn't know the extent of the damage!

Maybe I should have clarified :) -- retail on its *current value* -- which ended up being about $17,8xx -- which was still no hassle -- we have Allstate Fire and Casualty -- We insure 7 cars and 4 homes with them.. so they've made their money a long time ago!!

Glad your okay, but you said 06', that STS looks 08+

edit: sorry I just read your "Cadillac(s) I Drive". Congrats on the new car!
