I look at all those pictures and I think: part out!

While most of the accidents are due to driver error, this just continues to re-affirm my fear of crashing or getting hit in these little cars.. I mean, typical rear ends don't turn the rear-ender into a doorstop. Some of these lotuses seem to disintegrate on impact.

Eh, that's the price of adding lightness.










hit a guard rail


collided with an SUV


hit a utility pole and tree

That blue Europa that is the Europa link was mine. I had bought the car a week earlier, had it delivered directly to my mechanic for a thorough front to back inspection. He declared it one of the nicest restored Europas he's seen.

I picked it up from him 4:30 on Friday. Around 9 am the next morning a woman in a Mercedes ran a light and hit me in the right front. Car was totalled, although it may not look like it. Estimates to put it right (frame was toast) was roughly twice what a good S2 would cost then.

Very sad.
