    My Poor Smokey

    Hey everyone!

    The last few weeks haven't been good. This happened 3 weeks last monday. My Lovely Mk2 Ibiza 'Smokey' has gone to copart, some of you may have seen the pic on facebook......

    Here she is with her friend Betsy.

    This is what happened 3 weeks last monday

    This pic we took at the recovery agents...

    Basically I hit black ice and ended up hitting a PT Cruiser head on at 50mph. Luckily it hit me right on the n/s chassis leg. It doesnt look too bad from the pictures but it kinked the roof and 1/4 panel and even bent the back seat! (it also wrecked at least one of my BRAND NEW G60 Steels. GUTTED!!)

    She was the best car I ever had and i'm so lucky that she saved my life in the end.

    RIP Smokey xx

    Never mind the metal that can be replaced. Glad you walked away from something that could have been a hell of a lot worse

    Ouch, it sure could have been worse! Your very lucky to have walked away, like [MENTION=233]sparks3[/MENTION] said, its just metal, it can be replaced.

    As what's already been said, you have walked away in one piece. Though you won't be able to replace Smokey, you can try and find something similar. Unlucky mate.
