Default Rust in Peace Focus RS

Life made a decision for me.



I got T-boned around 45-50 on a street people usually do 60 on, and was lucky enough to walk away with nothing much more than a scratch. The side curtain air-bags were actually really soft, kind of like bumping into a pillow. Though my ears rung for a minute or two. I had to crawl out the passenger side of the car.

Car is done.

Damn Bill that blows, such a great looking ride! Most important thing is that you are ok.

I was going to say I got dibs on those Recaros, but it looks like they had airbags deployed in them

This is pretty much the exact type of hit I took except mine was more towards the rear of the car. Didn't feel as violent in the accident.





I'm more amazed at how little the door intruded into the interior of the car. Crash safety has come along way.

I am still sad the car is gone though

Glad you are OK. It's amazing how a small car like a Focus can hold up to a T bone crash.

Bird is coming out of storage next weekend. Was going to be this weekend, but with arranging the Focus stuff I didn't have time to get a ride to the Storage location so I can drive it home.
