So I get up early clean my car from tip to toe inside and out to go to the Palisades auto-x and meet some of you guys. On the way up there I stop to get a cup of coffee for my daily fix and this guy comes in and tells me someone just wrecked my car. I was parked in an end spot like I always do and someone (81 y/o man) came out of the carwash across the street and floored it! He went through the carwash parking ot, across the street, over a curb then over a parking barrier hit my passenger side door, quater panel, and bumper cover. He kept going across a VERY busy street almost taking out someone on a motorcycle into another parking lot hit the building then crashed in the loading dock. There were two cops sitting in the parkuing lot right where he ended up that saw the entire thing happen. I had my Advantix camera with me so no pics right now but as soon as I get the pics back I'll post them up. My stomach is soooo messed up right now I feel sick. You cuoldn't imagine how much time and effort I put into that car to make it still look brand new after 34k miles. I'm just lucky I wasnt walking back to it when this guy plowed through the lot. </font>

First off sorry about the big pics...I just re-sized them but they seem to still be big????

Anyway some old guy in that red car came out of the car wash full blast and went "through" my car across that street, hit that wall and then bounced into the loading dock. That black mark on my car is from his bumper! He hit my car in the air...thank god I wasn't in it or near it. And BTW I was parked straight...he pushed me over a godd 2 feet.

No I was not at that car wash..my car only gets washed by hand about 95% of the time

totalled? That's hardly totalled...of course, that whole side panel area will probly have to get replaced an all, but it looks mostly like sheet metal damage, and some rim damage maybe too...maybe get the rear 1/4 window replaced...not totalled though
thank goodness.

That sucks!!! These old people need to learn how to drive. It is hard looking at it because it is real similar to my car.

thats some scary stuff if it can happen. if thats the case, then if i ever get into an accident and its my fault, i should just say "my gas pedal got stuck!" and blame honda?

Make sure to either sue him for depreciated value of your car, or make sure that his insurance covers the depreciated value. They will basically give you the money up front that you would lose in value because of the accident. Sometimes this can be a pretty good amount of money.

I forgot to mention that a lot of times if any of the pillars on the car are damaged, as your's clearly is, the insurance will total the car. My first prelude was totaled becuase of hail damage to the front pillars. I bought the car back from the insurance company at pennies on the dollar, and saved a Sh!t load of money. The car had a rebuilt/clean title.
