Take that, insurance company

Wrecked WRX

For two years I owned a 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX. Several months ago, I signed the title over to my parents in a desperate effort to avoid paying $600 a month (yes, a month) in insurance premiums (teenage males with multiple speeding tickets are not highly prized by the insurance industry, it seems). The deal was that my parents would now own the car, make payments, pay insurance, and be the sole drivers, and in return they gave me their paid-off and pretty reliable 1991 Mazda Protege. It was very kind of them. Despite having to drive a much older and far less cool car, it's really helped me save money and pay off old debts.

Unfortunately, my step-dad rear-ended someone today while driving the WRX. The car isn't drivable anymore and will need to be towed from in front of our house. He felt horrible about it too. And the irony, of course, is that an immature under-20 teenage male owned the thing for years and never put a scratch on it, but a mature over-40 adult male ended up wrecking it. If any insurance companies are reading this, I'd just like to say: <nelson>ha ha!</nelson>.

And of course, I'd be neglecting my duty to you, readers, if I didn't provide pictures of the damage. There's a damage gallery here. If you'd like to see what the car looked like prior to the damage, check out this pre-wreck gallery.
