Sucks about the car, but it's a good thing that everyone was out safe.

For insurance...... I pay $380/YEAR for my sable wagon with a higher liability limit(no comprehensive/collision). It's not the 15/30/5 that NJ requires it's 50/75/30.

That's the saddest thing I've seen happen to a bull.

Glad everyone's okay and I hope you find out the cause of that.

yeah exhibition driving is just showing off while driving pretty much. Squealing your tires, accelerating (did i spell that wrong. it looks weird to me) too fast, i got pulled over cuz me and another SHO friend were racing and i swerved into oncoming traffic because he swerved at me. Nooooottttttt the smartest thing ive ever done.

Wow lol, that wasn't the brightest moment

I had a friend that was pulled over for "excessive engine racing"... I don't know why he did it, but he got on the highway, then put it in neutral and proceeded to let it bounce off of the limiter to 'warm it up' (thats what he said).... WTF. Cop pulled him over and said he didn't need to be revving his engine that high lol!

At least his engine will be warm when it explodes.

I too give my condolences for your bull, and im 18 and the best rate for straight liability was 318 a month! I have completed all driver training and graduated licenses and no tickets or accidents!

AllGoNoSHO has a little shameless behaviour in the past

So far, here's what I've found out:

According to Experian (A report the dealership chain JDByrider chooses for all cars) the vehicle's odometer was tampered with roughly 2 months before I purchased it.

Geico is probably the worst insurer ever, they tried to withhold a rental car even though I PAY for it extra on the policy, they've double talked non-stop and even went as far as to offer my loan company before even giving me an estimated value of the car

As far as the fire goes, we're still in the dark - everything is toast in the engine compartment and on the firewall, most of the interior remained in identifiable condition save for the instrument cluster (haha, how funny??? - I should note I had noticed dark impressions/greasy fingerprints on parts of some of the numbers on the odometer before...) and the fire damage remained primarily before the A pillar.

I miss my bull

But I love this friggin' Edge I've got. It's got the new Ti-VCT V6 and oh my god my vulcan was nothing in comparision. I just.. Don't like it's face.



Amusing note: This greeted me above the 2nd row - funny to know Ford is still using it half a decade later...

Sucks that your insurance is doing that. I have USAA and they are always great no matter what happens. Great homeowners insurance too. Except when my parents needed a $70,000 roof... then they wanted to MAKE SURE that we needed it... A tree branch went through the roof 1 month after getting the new one on and they paid for it to be fixed with no hassle though.
