Default Got into a wreck, not my fault though.

Internet and phone lines were down for two days so I couldn't talk about it.


I will always drive trucks for the rest of my life from now on because my ole' 98' Ranger treated me well.

Was going down the road like normal to work and an old couple pulled out in front of me and I demolished their bumper. It was there fault but we just called the cops and he didn't write a report we just exchanged information.


My ole' truck just got it's bumper dented in and she's still chugging along. Kinda wish I bought that brace I wanted but if I did probably would have hurt the ole gal and pal.

Nice people though just glad they are OK. Also for once I met a nice hoover cop.

Young guy who had a smile on his face who even joked that I had a warrent on me. I **** myself then he laughed and slapped my shoulder, "Hey I was only kidding! I always joked with someone in their first wreck! Gahaha....even my LT. got into a wreck just now!"


But I'm alright.....kind of sad my old girl's got another battle scar...but she's a trooper....not a scratch on her. Built like a tank and only costs 20 bucks to fill er up.

Good to see you and everyone else involved in the fender bender are OK Jiro, and unhurt. Bumpers are made for dents, glad that was all the damage you sustained and it did not impede your "old girls" operation and your mode of travel.

Even better that you got to speak with a cop that proved to be a real human being. Refreshing, isn't it. We're not all a$$holes. You just tend to notice the a$$holes more than the human cops. They smell bad and make alot of noise.

I too am a fan of my 94 Ranger for the same reason. I had someone turn left in front of me and I couldn't stop, smashed their quarter panel, bumper, and trunk lid. Scratched my bumper.
A girl ran into the back of me, bent my bumper. Smashed her plastic bumper, headlight, hood, fender and passenger door. I got a nice check from her insurance too.
I am a fan of steel bumpers, you can keep your molded plastic.

Glad to hear everyone was OK though.

Glad to hear nobody was hurt and your truck survived it Jiro. Now you know why I drive a truck. Ever get that Taurus pump .22 yet?

No harm, no foul. Trucks are good.
