    Well as some know my car was keyed just before new years, so after I pay my $200 deductable (sucks that I have to pay though) the driver side of my car gets painted.

    Well today during lunch I was rearended. I won't be found at fault so I won't need to pay my deductable and I'll probably get a new bumper and the back of my car repainted.

    Now if someone can hit the passenger side of my car (that would be lucky number three) I can get my entire car repainted for only $200 :D

    Come on winterpeg drivers, show me how bad you really are!

    Wow Gibbs, and I'm the one with the 666 license plates. LOL

    I sure know how being rearended feels - happened twice last year. Maybe some of those drivers should open their eyes when they drive. :eek:

    Gibble,

    I know how you feel! I just got rear ended a month ago, and so the back end has pretty paint. The front was done before I bought the car, and the driver's side is in good shape, so all I need is the passenger side!

    I thought I was the only one who would think that this is a good re-paint strategy! ;)

    Well I'm looking at it this way. In my 6 years of driving my average autopac (insurance) per year has been about $1200 ($1500 now, was less when my car was a POS)

    Anyhow, 6x$1200=$7200

    I wrote off one car because it spontaneously combusted:
    $3500
    I wrote off another car because I ran a red and got T-Boned: $1500
    My current car has been keyed and will be fixed:
    $750 damage
    That's a total of $5750, after subtracting my deductables of $500+$500+$200 (I've wised up :p) and taking that off what I've payed in, that's $2650 I haven't used :p

    That should still cover the rear bumper and paint they need to do to fix this accident...I'm just making sure I get my moneys worth :)

    Poor gibbles........:(

    I got rear ended once, at a red light.......as we were waiting for the police to show up, the guy that hit me says 'hmmmm....wonder who they're gonna blame this one on.............' ------- I almost dug my newly polished finger nails into his face and said 'why of course, ME butthead, I BACKED INTO YOU!' ------ grrrrrrrr

    You know it could be trouble when there's a chain holding the hood on :eek: :eek:

    Take a drive down to Arkansas. There's plenty of idiots behind the wheel here.
