so on my way home from work last week i was hit by a xmas tree the flew off some asshats truck, and bc of this tree it caused me to spin out of control being hit by an f-150 and then into the concret barricde. Im ok just a little sore but the ST is fucked......such a way for her to go out, but the way me and the fiance see it is that bc i saved her life( the ST celica) back when i got her( she was on the way to the junkyard) she saved my life in return. in all of the aftermath i bought a 92 white drop top, and it is really good shape. no body damage at all :) and a mint interior. future plans are a 3sgte swap or a rebuild on the 5sfe, swap over the alltrac hood from the ST and a 1.5 inch drop. And just end up with a really clean and nice street build :) hopefully it will be as clean as the dutchess was. now if i could get the damn supra running, lol.

Sad. :( my first Celica, a 79 gt sacrificed himself for me when I was rear ended by a full sized GMC pickup. He hit me so hard that the trunk lid went through the bac window and the drivers seat was bent backwards about 10". It was like I had it reclined we it was fully upward. He was beautiful.

Bottom line, you are safe. Celica did it's job, all is good. :)

DAMN Grimmy!

I'm glad to hear that you're OK. Sounds like the ST did her job. For a small car, Celicas have a lot of metal in them.

Congrats on the vert. In a couple of months it will be constant top down weather here.
