Well, my car is now in the junk yard. Totaled after being hit while parked in a hotel parking lot.
Because some are interested...purchased new, synthetic oil every 3-5k, original clutch, original angle gear, 247,000 miles.

That sucks.

At least it had a good innings...

What happened to the other party?

Got shot by the police. Stolen Hummer surrounded by police in parking lot. Decided he would try to drive over my car and a police car so they opened fire. Wounded and survived. Assuming might get some jail time:)

Things really didn't line up for me that day. Last minute job to do in Muscatine, Iowa. Drove from Kalamazoo, changed hotels at the last minute to be closer to job. Parked the car away from all others when a semi backed in. Driver of semi approached me and asked if I would move it so he could park where I was. Said "sure, no problem". Moved it to the other end of parking lot in an end spot. Checked in, went to sleep. Police woke me up the next morning with a phone call to my room.

It would be wicked if you could somehow find that police dashcam footage.
Never thought of that! Or the hotel surveillance! I'm going back to same job this week, maybe I'll visit the hotel and ask if they have any (no, I'm not staying there again).

That is ridiculous!! I would find out who the guy is and destroy all of his cars and his family members cars. Be careful though, judging by the Hummer and evasion of the police it's gunna be in a rough spot and they're not gunna like the Oscars..
That sucks that your car gets destroyed by some pos that should be in jail or worse.

Think it's still at the collision repair facility. Haven't settled yet.
I took the front grill as a memento. Might be a few parts in the garage...rubber mats, maybe some brake parts.
I do have a couple cool dealership banners hanging up that will be a sad reminder of my years with my R. They will have to be gone soon.

Thanks for the interest in the banners and the concern for my car. I will post on this thread when I put them up on eBay.

That is very unfortunate for your R, sad to hear. I sure hope you find a great replacement.
