Hey guys, I'm the OP. It was 67 mustang fastback and I was driving it home from the workshop late at night. And to all those wondering, no the car didn't survive because the asshole was driving a truck, it's sitting in a garage but I don't even know if I'm going to go look at it for a while now.

I do hope you are okay and that he got arrested for drunk driving. Remember this could have ended way worse, he could have ended up killing someone. Good luck with re-restoring your car or getting a new one!

At least you can repair it again

So the drunk driver isn't the only one who's smashed

I don't get why you are so upset about this.. Insurance makes all your problems disappear.. If you don't have insurance, then I would understand your frustration.

It is less about the cost and more about the loss of something you basically hand crafted. Time, love, and energy was probably spent over these 6 months. source: my uncle rebuilds vintage sport cars and engines

As a classic car enthusiast I get exactly what has OP so upset. 6 months of hard work and effort down the drain very fast plus it's not exactly cheap to do a restoration. When your done you expect to be able to take some pride in your vehicle and be able to say I did this. I've got a few projects myself that are going to take years. Insurance won't even pay the whole thing unless you can provide a receipt for everything and prove what you have in it most of the time

I can definitely understand where OP is coming from. I would be pissed if my Mustang got destroyed in an accident. It has a lot of sentimental value, and I'm guessing the OP feels the same about his car. 6 months of hard work on a car would make it more than just a mode of transport IMO.

You should definitely look into getting classic car insurance though. The value of the car can be negotiated, depending on it's status ( fully restored, just alright condition, well-maintained original, etc ), the money you put into it, etc. That would absolutely be worth the money. I look forward to the day I can afford to get one of my own. There are some truly beautiful works of art out there on 4 wheels.

He just wanted to get a closer look y'know. At least it's not your fault and I'm sure you'll get compensation but 6 months gone can't be reimbursed unfortunately and for that, I agree, your life sucks.

Today, I saw my uncle, whom I have not seen in five years, at a family gathering. His reaction to seeing me? "Holy SHIT you have BOOBS! The guys must be all over you!" I awkwardly replied, "No..." Then he muttered, "I know I would." FML

Today, I'd just finished feeding my parrot and sweeping all the seeds under the cage. As I was walking away, my parrot whistled. I turned around to see him get up onto the food dish, pick up a clawful of food and toss it on the floor. FML
