Zoe was waiting to turn off the main road into our lane when a van went straight into the back of her on friday night. She's ok, battered and bruised, but the Porsche is totalled.
If it's any consolation, the car held up amazingly well - at first glance it doesn't even look too bad, but the impact has pulled the roof and pushed the n/s quarter up into the door. The guy's sprinter looked like it had hit an IED!
curse word Joe! I'm so sorry to hear that but I'm glad it protected zoe in the crash. I'm gutted so so gutted the cars dead I haven't been on here much what with the new house an all so I've only just noticed this.
Will you salvage anything from her? The wheels survive?
I was in two minds whether to drop you a line to let you know. The Copart guys collected it on Tuesday for assessment, but it's blatantly had it - the floor has pushed up ito the transaxle and, as I said up there ^^, the body has pulled in a couple of places. I can't see any benefit in buying it back; we already have too many broken cars here!
The only bit of good news comes from the fact that you gave me the original wheels. Those amazing Rials have been removed, cleaned and put into storage. Expect to see them on whatever car Zoe gets next! I think they'll probably end up on the stacklight coupe, when I get that finished.
Obviously, I know just how much work you put into this - so I know you'll be just as devastated about this as Zoe is.
