So The wifey rear ended a guy in her 99 Civic commuter. Almost no damage to his car, but that didn’t keep him from going truly ballistic on her and kicking the passenger fender in. He got a ticket for criminal vandalism. Qualifies as ape behavior in my book. The license plate on his 2010 Vw read REPOLOL if that gives you an idea. Anyway, 95k mile Civic is effectively totaled. I’m getting a whopping $1228 from progressive. I’m heading down to the title bureau to exchange for a salvage title now. Then rebuild it with new fenders, hood, facia, and paint. Parts are cheap. The good news is the ‘04 Acura TL trans is rebuilt and Awesome shifting now. New Ilx continues to make me a very happy 85mph commuter.
