Default R.I.P. 2008 Dodge Charger Daytona #0480/1650

July 4 2008 I was blessed to become the owner of OrangeCrush, a 2008 Hemi Orange Dodge Charger Daytona #0480/1650. Today July 14 2009 I come to you with a heavy heart. I talked to the insurance company today, They said they had found a recycled charger (WTF does that mean exactly) that they could buy and cut out the supports and such needed to fix my car and it made the estimate go from 16k+ to 12k. I just about lost it on the guy, after a few choice phrases and a few deep breaths I told the adjuster "look there is no way you are going to get the car back to previous condition, I have GAP insurance just total it out I don't care that you are not going to completely pay the car off." He said OK and it is supposed to be taken care of tomorrow. I would have never felt comfortable in that car so it is probably for the better. Now the plan, my wife and I have talked and I think we are going to hold off purchasing another vehicle right now, until we get some debt paid off and such. I still plan on being on the forumZ as much as always, so I can live vicariously through this great family. I appreciate all the well wishes and prayers the last few weeks, my wife is fine and we are very thankful that we chose to drive a very safe vehicle. My wife is going to get the new RAM for now and I am gonna borrow a 93 ford ranger. I have never enjoyed a vehicle like I did the Daytona, I plan to own another charger in the future........ Thanks Folks!!
Here are a few pics!

July 4 2008


Took her to her first Hooters and a ballgame!


Went to the lake for a little cruise


She quickly made friends with other cars whose owners had good taste!!


She got tattoos on her buttcheeks... dang kids


And a tramp stamp....lol


A few weeks ago she met her new brother!


3 days later she was stricken by an idiot who can not pay attention...









R.I.P. OrangeCrush we will miss you always...

That is a very sad story! I am glad the people involved are ok but it is very sad when a beloved car meets an early demise! BTW, insurance companies suck!

I really feel for you! As Bluebeard says, "Insurance Companies Suck!" You will probably take a hard hit in the pocket for this one!

Thanks folks, my wife was driving, she was sore but luckily no broken bones, etc. As far as insurance companies, yeah they are a racket. Luckily when we bought the Daytona we bought GAP insurance also because the tradein we had was crap and we carried 10k over on this, so instead of being way upside down in this car we will be starting over from the word go. we are gonna take a few months to decide what we want to do, but I can almost guarantee it will be another charger or maybe a challenger

That is the only reason I ever hope that I go out one day and something either turned over or fell on my truck. GAP for the win!!!

It is always a good idea to get GAP insurance even if it raises your payment alittle. If something like this ever happens you are covered.

Sorry about your ride and I hope whatever you both decide on is just as nice.
