last nite while driving my freind home my poor beloved Volvo had an altercation with a cheap and nasty piece of Japanese crap. Unfortunately for some unknown reason the Toyota came off better than my Volvo. <p>Some would say it is write off and others would say she'll be rite mate a few new guards and some paint and it wil be as good as new.... but in this situation i think the latter is a bit far fetched....<p>as if it was only two front guards that need replacing i would be extremely lucky.. but more like the whole front end from the fire wall needs replacing.<p>but true to its nature and despite that the whole front end now sits a good 18 inches to the right and having the head lights hanging with no glass but still glowing got me home in one piece.<p>as to its future no body knows but you guys know im a die hard Volvo fanatic and i aint gunna let no Volvo die that easy and especially by some cheap and nasty Toyota Camry................<p>i shall have some pics of my car up for you guys soon <p>Michael..

I feel your pain <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsad.gif" BORDER="0"> My 245 got crunched by a stop sign running Ford Ranger. $2600+ to repair, fortunately he was at fault so his insurance paid. The trusty Volvo was drivable after the wreck but his was taken away on a flatbed with a completely demolished front axle.

Re: my 242GT smashed!!! ([email protected])

thank god for volvo safety! the women ran a red light as i was turning so i had no way out of it. she hit me in my weakest spot and her strong part...if i had of ran into the side of her i would have only marked my bumper bar.im takeing the car down to work today and were going to see if we can save her...i had a look at another GT for sale yesterday and might be buying it. i have to geta the black strip that runs down the side of the car. since there are no wrecking GT's or 2 doors around hear i might have to see if i can import one from somewere, america,new zealnd or sweadon..dontno yet. this accident has seriously p*ssed me off as i was restoring the car to its forma glory in a couple of weeks..my GT was the most straightest around.....till now.. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emhammer.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0">

Oh that blows, sorry to hear about this. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsad.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Sounds like the old girl did her job and kept you safe from the red light baron, that is a respectible way to go. I bet the parts can be transplanted if written off, take the insurance money and buy it back for a fraction of the price and use the good parts in your next one.<br>Hopefully the car can straightened, but that sounds like the frame took quite a hit. Always sad to loose a good car...<br>
