Yesterday, about 5:00 pm I was driving thru a parking lot ... top down ... it was about 70 degrees ... perfect fall day here in Texas ... anyway, I was broadsided on the passenger side ... right at the back of the door ... it spun me about 90 degrees ... heavy damage to the door, right rear wheel well, and right rear wheel. the rear wheel was ~1 inch out of align ... the rear lid would open but was very hard to close ... the passenger door although damaged would open & close ... the Sky was not driveable ...

I would have taken pic's but my cell phone was on my belt by my right hip and it was crushed when I was slammed into the center consol by the force of the impact .

Believe me, I can empathize with u....have the Silver Pearl with Black Leather interior also...that is why, I go so slow in these parking lots...the morons don't look and they don't know who has the "right of way"...and of course, cell phones and seniors.

At least, u were not hurt

Argh! Sorry to hear that. It pains us all to hear about these accidents. :banghead:

Glad to hear that you're ok though!

I hope you get their insurance information.
Keep us posted on your Sky's condition and how the repairs go.

I guess the quote in my sig just about sums it up...:rolleyes:

For a car that is rare and we hardly ever see each other, the bad guys sure are hitting alot of the Sky's on the road.
Is there a bounty or something out there on Sky's? :lol:
How are the bright colors like red and yellow doing?

I'm beginning to think you're right about that. Well, we'll all be paying some nice insurance premiums to make up for it... :eek:

Sorry to learn about the accident, but glad that you are o.k. Just a reminder, "whip lash rhymes with quick cash" (according to a very old episode of Sanford and son). Keep the forum posted on the cost of repair estimate and how the repairs are progressing.

YIKES!!!

First - make sure you are OK...

I think it is a conspiracy of all the "plain old cars," out there to hurt the beauty in their midst....

Update: Adjuster sez $3200 visiable damage ... + whatever is found in the rear suspension ... PLUS $1200 damage done by the adjuster himself when he split the 2 composite front fender panels when he improperly lifted my Sky ... 2 weeks to get everything fixed (assuming parts are available ... I'm not holding my breath on that one)

YUK!!

I do a lot of "Casino Hopping" here in Las Vegas and have used the valet services in the past. No more though.

One of the benefits of being retired is I can choose what day of the week to go out. So, I only go out on week days when there is less of a crowd.

Thus far, I have always been able to park my chili pepper at an end space in the parking structures. No dings as yet.
