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!

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...
