(Return to "Our Cars" albumn)


Geoff's second prang!!! - but I am "innocent" in this one!!!
I was on my way to pick up Sharon from work on the 18th January 1999,
and was stationary at a set of lights on Mulgrave Road, Cairns
Next thing, BANG!!!
Belted from behind!!!

In the photo below it appears that there wasn't much damage,
but the insurance claim told a different story!!!
The rear tailgate/hatch was twisted out of shape, the spare wheel well was buckled, a new muffler and bumper-bar were required, weather/sealing strips, paint, labour, etc, etc
..........and the total was $1097.33!!!
It was repaired as "good as new" and there hasn't been any problems with the car
