This is my car, a 1985 Caprice Classic Sedan. It has become
best known as "the boat" due to its immense size. On February 8, 1997, I
drove down to Virginia, and on the way back got into an accident. Most of
the car was okay, the driver-side front fender and lights got crunched.
Also, it appears that the frame got slightly bent on the driver side too.
Funny, the bumper is fine. If only I could have hit on the bumper, except
I was hitting my brakes; the guy in front of me was hitting his brakes. My
shocks suck, and when I hit, his bumper went over mine. The damage is
estimated at $3000, however thanks to some connections I have it has cost me
about $400 to fix. The car I hit as well as the car it got pushed into
suffered only minor scratches. Damn composite materials! Hey, can't
complain -- no one was hurt. You can always buy a new car if it breaks.
We put the new parts on finally but still need to line them up and paint
them. What's cool is on August 17th at 9pm I got back in the car and went
back to Virginia. I made it home without incident carting 400 lbs. of
Mr Pibb, Surge, Josta, and Slice Grape, in a whopping 26 hours! Pibb page
coming soon... still... I just had the carbeurator fixed cause it was
falling off! Got it tuned up, the tranny serviced, then made my next
great voyage back to Nebraska, but this time for a practical reason! To
work, and live for once!
