Check out my new ride!!

Post by scrapy1967 » Wed Aug 05, 2020 5:14 am

I never mentioned it here mainly due to the fact that I was so shook up and a bit spooked too lol! July 7th I was in a pretty bad car accident. My Mustang was totaled due to an idiot in front of me that thought I was following to close well if he would have gotten out of my way and not sat at the stop sign and then drove 2 mile an hour to tick me off. I was on my way to my moms her life line had gone off and I was trying to get there. Meanwhile he was chatting on his phone. He decided to slam his brakes on and caused me to rear end him. Unfortunate for him I am a 53 year old handicapped woman and had a reason to be in a hurry so the police charged him with causing the accident. The spooky part was it happened 13 years almost to the day that we bought the car. My husband bought it for a early wedding present. I guess in my mind I wreck my car was I also going to wreck my marriage this year too. This was just a long string of accidents that have happened to me since March 1st not to mention all the medical issues. I sit here everyday wondering what next!!! Through it all though I have cried a lot but kept my spirits up. My dogs really help with that!!

Yesterday I went car shopping and because my husband works for Humana we got a great deal through Ford and bought me a 2020 Mustang!! WOW an upgrade for sure from a 2007. This is a pic I took from their website. I need to get good pics of her at home!

So sorry to hear all you've been through, Janet! Glad to hear you're ok! Great looking car! We had a Mustang back in the 70's. LOL :-D

13 is also my lucky number as I was born on a Friday the 13th! 😊

Nice ride!

And 13 is a lucky number - not all bad. My parents were married on Dec 13th and until my mother's death, they were married for 38 yrs.

I am glad that you are okay. Nice new car - I have a soft spot for Ford Mustangs. When I was in High School I would borrow my Mom's 67 Mustang convertible (which I was allowed very often).

Oh Janet, I'm so glad you are ok! Isn't it odd how times like these give cause to superstition? I'd say you did pretty well considering the new mustang. But most of all I'm happy you are fine.
