Sad to see.

My bad day was in April - not anything near as bad as yours but still it takes time to make it right. Mine as of last Friday:

Holy CRAP!!! That is terrible. Hope that you are OK. I sure hope that the other person has insurance..
I know how you feel. Happened to me a few years back.

What a bummer. Front and rear? I hope my wife don't see those pictures. Here in Houston, when a light turns yellow, I first check the rear view mirror, to see if someone is about to push me through the light. It's a terrible feeling and hard to shake. I hope you are OK -and George too. (At least his car is looking better.)

Terry,
Hope everyone is ok.

Also hope there is enough insurance to put your 3 back together again.

Not something I would wish on anyone.

Thanks everybody for the postings, I had one of my 8 year old granddaughters with me when this happened. We were so lucky, she just got whiplash and bruises from the seatbelt. I didn't fair so well, my mouth and chest hit the steering wheel which bruised my mouth and the ribs, nothing broken. I had my top down, the bonnet flew over the top of the windshield, clipped me on the top of the head and ended up on the street behind the car. It happened so fast, I didn't even see it fly over. Didn't know it hit me until somebody pointed out I was bleeding. The worst is my right ankle, it looked like a baseball attached to the side of it. Both ankles were cut, but my entire right foot is swollen and black and blue. I believe the car is totaled, I have my insurance with Grundy Worldwide. I will let you know how that turns out.

What a shame. Hope you're OK. I also hope he's insured and owned up to it all. That part can be just as frustrating.

Yes that is horrible to see. I'm glad you and your passenger were not injured far worse. I hope you are made whole again by the insurance company.

Very sorry. That's always my biggest fear when in the Triumphs...the "other" drivers. Also very glad to hear that the injuries were all fixable. Praying for a rapid recovery...

Terry, I add my good wishes for you and your grand daughters.

We can replace our TR3s...... Hope that nightmare turns out for you also.

The Horror. In perspective, stuff running out while I poured it in, I had a great day. But your poor TR got so shook it peed, as would I.
Don't paint it orange, it look's like quite nice.

I'll add my thoughts for a speedy recovery. Glad the personal injuries were not more serious. One of my great pleasures is giving out grandkids rides in the TR6 and especially the TR3. I stick to very quiet rural roads when the wee ones are with me. Cheers, Mike
