Well, true to form, Friday the 13th reared it's ugly head this morning in the form of a 1985 Ford F100 to the rear...
I was heading to work, to give a presentation to some elementary school kids the virtues of being a Graphic Designer for their 'Career Day' and on the way there, while I was waiting to merge into traffic at a stop sign, I got rearended by an elder gentleman in his Ford F100.
It appears the towing mount took the brunt of the force, but it has completely torn up the rear bumper, ripped out the back up sensors and pushed in the tailgate some. The Commander did proud, and doesn't show 'that' much damage, but 'any' damage to me is a lot as I am so proud of my vehicles and keep them in top notch condition.
His F100 was all caved in at the front from the towing mount, and across his grill as well. I am assuming he didn't have airbags being as it was a 1985 truck.
And unusually for me (being as I have mentioned how anally retentive I am about my vehicles), I was very concerned about the guy who hit me. He must have been between 60 and 65 I guess... and all he would do is cuss that he'd wrecked his truck! Eff this and eff that! So I calmly asked him if he was ok, several times, then sat him down in the Commander to get him out of the rain and to take down all of his details.
I have a claim in now... so hopefully I can get my Commander on the road again in no time, looking good as new.
Well that's it... my little story... and here are some pictures, cos as we all know... no pics, it didn't happen!
However, I am not sure what that thing in the 5th pic is... not sure if it fell off my Jeep or his truck! I kept it anyways!
