Sad day

A classic has been taken to the grave. My first truck, '92 IDI. I'll miss her forever. I actually got all choked up about it.

Yeah I wanna get another one for the wife. That thing was as slow as they come, but NEVER had any problems ever and could haul the world behind it. This happened in July (but was just hauled away). I just found the photos while deleting files on the camera.

Totaled. Insurance company quoted it at only $3k. It was donated to a friend for whatever he wanted. The impact was so incredible that it ripped the body from the frame and pushed itself into the block (the engine mounts held for the most part). When I opened the hood, it was a jumbled up mess. The offending party had to be cut from their car.

Thought so myself. Tweeked the frame from front to rear, broke body mounts, crippled rear diesel tank and punctured the front (go figure...full tanks), smashed bed into cab, broke both front seats in half (WOW), pushed body into block (the entire engine compartment was turned around) and through the radiator. Aside from that, it was only a few other cosmetic things! Even lost the passenger side mirror which was never found.

It did it's job though. Parents had it and were hauling a generator during the storm we had at the time (of course that became a missile and landed 50 yards in front of the wreck). It saved their lives.
