Our Calibra. Write Off. Livid
« on: September 13, 2009, 07:18:49 AM »
Got woken up by a huge bang at 5:45 this morning, looked out the window and there's a transit van alongside an Astra just up the road. We then saw a neighbour go out and her Ka had been hit so Diva went down and guess what, the w*nker had hit our Mazda and worse of all the Cally. The off side rear side panel is all dented in and the rear wheel has been pushed in as well so it's bound to be an insurance write off. f*cking livid >:( >:( >:(

Reckons he had a blowout!!!! It's a 30 mph limit but he's hit four cars so f*ck knows how fast he was going. Old Bill has been out and it seems like the van driver is insured, like I say I'm f*cking livid and Diva is really upset too, she loved her Calibra

Guy's that is the last thing you need on a Sunday morning (did wonder why you we online so early this morning Trig). Now you have the hassle of 1 car going to be off the road, and the paper work to claim for 2 cars.

Looking at the pics, to hit 4 car's and cause the damage it did to the KA as the last hit, he must of been in a bit of a hurry.

Trust you both get it sorted, but can understand how Diva must be feeling as her Cally is her pride and joy.

It was the Astra he hit last RG and it's way up the road from the Mazda. He was breathalized BS but was clean. He was an eastern european bloke who was delivering newspapers to shops and must have been going a damn site more than 30. w*nker

An Astra further up the road (must be the pic I cannot open). I do trust the guy gets a good going over by the legal system.

Hopefully you can see the distance the prick travelled to hit four cars so he must have been going a bit

Notice the skid mark

Look what the b*stard has done to my car

I was this close to knocking the c*nt out myself at one point, not a good idea to be laughing when you've just hit someone's car. I had to come indoors out of the way in the end...

WOW! to me it looks like clipped the Mazda, hit the Cally which raised the van if you look at the side of the car it has left a tyre foot print high up and broke his steering, landed on the road again, side swiped the KA, and then hit an Astra a good bit further down the road.

His claim of 30mph is a no no. Burst tyre before hand = fail.

Best part is that you have pics to send to your insurance company showing all aspects.

But it still at the end of the day, a shame about the Calibra.

Would you consider buying it back?

Dude, sorry to see that mate, But at least he was insured and did not run off.  So at least you can claim on his insureance and Not ya own

Blimey, once again the Eastern European immigrants strike. Bunch of tw*ts, the lot of them! >:(

Buy it back, strip it and use the money to get another.
Make sure you claim as much back for the masda as possible aswell, assuming that's not classed as a writeoff.

you were correctly parked.
