My mint valver has been killed

Well I have the overwhelming urge to cry my F***IN eyes out
my valver is in a bit of a bad state

I was going to see d_diddy to sort some parts out after I finished work. Coming off the A52 to get onto the M1 @ j25, going down the slip road and slowing down for the lights I heard an almighty crash & some scraping, then got hit by something - a wheel, hub, part of a rear axle & suspension
- smashed my rear qtr window and hit me on the back of the head & then in front of me I see a corsa flying & rolling through the air, over the top of me, followed by a lamp post all landing in front of me

The lad drivin the corsa, said he hit the kerb at 70 & it flipped him all over the place, how the f**k he got out that car I do not know ( I'll post pics later)

My lovely valver is fooked
I've got no doubt it will be written off, the roof is creased, B pillar & door are bent in several places, the rear qtr window frame is deformed.

The adrenalin has worn off now & I think a trip to hospital is in order as my head, neck, shoulder & back are pretty painful right now

No doubt its a write off the structure itself is beyond repair imho, it's bent & doesn't drive straight :(

Don't worry I'll take the clown to the cleaners ;)

I sort of feel sorry for the guy I've been on the giving and recieving ends of car crashes so I know how it works, we all learn from our mistakes some do any way :rolleyes:

I didn't go to punch fcuk out of the kid as I seriously thought he was dead and since I deal with horrible sh*t @ work a bit of professionalism as well as shock takes over and you just get on with what needs to be done.....just going to be a busy day on the phone tomorrow :rolleyes:

I will put pics up, just cba right now and havin a few beers with my m8s
I'll probably be drivin a celica gt4 for a bit while I decide how best to go about buyin another Mk1:evil:

Poor valver :(

If I had caused the write off of someone's pride and joy I would feel so so guilty :(

Gutted for you mate, glad you're ok though, sounds like it could have been a lot worse.

Sorry to hear your bad news. The accident sounds horrific.

On the plus side you have got away without any serious injurys or worse, hopefully you can source another valver. I'm sure you'd get plenty of help sourcing one via the forum.

Least you walked away from that. After 6th year when a mate died 3 days after passing his test when i read a thread like this my heart sinks because of this.

Car did look good but its a car, can be replaced.

s**t, lucky you walked away mate. Could have been a lot worse, car wheel travelling at 70mph hitting you in the face.

Well back of the head via window, B pillar & headrest :eek:

Getting it all sorted through angel assistance :approve: & I'll be breaking it for parts

Just really sore today :( I do security work full time & some part time door work, my head & neck hurt quite a bit, can't move my arm very well & my back hurts so I can't see me doin any door work for a while :mad:

sorry to hear that mate, but at least u get to build a nice new one now! In the meantime if your selling seats....................!
Gutted, that vavler was mint. Make sure you buy it back off the insurance, the engine and other undamaged parts can be sold for a fair bit on forums/ebay.

Hope you find another mk1 and get it mint.

Gone but not forgotten. Glad your ok.
