Damage to Ian’s Car

Yesterday as I was on my way home from a business meeting, a car came out of a side street and hit me. I was travelling at about 25 miles an hour and it felt as though the other car was travelling at speed.

My car ended up stradling both sides of the road. Thankfully there was nothing coming the opposite way and neither I nor the driver of the car that hit me were hurt. I was however quite shaken by the experience. This could have been a lot, lot more serious, and I suspect that my guardian angel has a few bruises and scratches from protecting me!

I am still waiting for an assessor to come look at the car, but I have a feeling that the car will be classed as ‘unecconomical to repair’. I’m gutted. I’ve had my MX5 since 2001 and over the last 18 months spent a lot of money on it, having the bodywork done and a new roof put on it.

For anyone interested in looking at the extent of the damage, you can see the full set of images I have taken for insurance purposes here: http://photos.imb.biz/other/ianscardamage
