    I'm lucky. My wife is actually a very good driver. Probably because she's not asian. Asian women drivers are the worst. @Jaguar at least no one got hurt.

    My Fiance and her whole family are horrible drivers. They can't park or back up. They take 10-15 sec to change lanes. They brake excessive. They could make a reality tv show.

    Thankfully I don’t drive with women much....TERRIBLE DRIVERS.

    Glad your wife is ok. #1 is her.

    I know for my future, if I get married, when we’re together I’m driving. 100%. Especially in my car with CM’s. She can do what she wants on her own...

    I can sorta relate...

    Mine somehow seems to get rear ended every 3-4 years or so. Luckily none her fault. My last car, messed up the front bumper the week I got it.

    See it almost daily here. What is it about that extra rear wheel that drivers can't figure out? An extra 8 inch swing out won't kill ya, but I see duallies curb riding all the time.

    So, update from field adjuster was $1800 "maybe a few hundred more once we open it", as she didn't want to open the hood and not be able to get it closed.

    It's dropped at the shop and we'll see what turns out.

    The G1W-C has failed me. It's got 50+ folders on the card each with its own little snippets of random driving from different days (only 1-2 video files per folder). The video before she got into the accident is mysteriously clipped at 0:25s and I know she's not capable of doing video editing on her own so it's a mystery. I was just contemplating replacing her SD card the week before and just had to find the spare... Don't know if it's the card or the camera to blame...

    They may fix it. I hope they do. Great condition otherwise.

    Man, sometimes I just want to let her drive and I can play on my phone for once. She's gotta be self sufficient, one of these days my bad habits are going to catch up to me and she's going to need to be able to take care of herself, so I'm tryin' to get her so she at least isn't terrible :p

    Dont forget you can PREVENT the totalled/salvage title
    and negotiate you get the car and some money to fix it. I have done that several times over the years.

    Good Luck !! Glad she is ok !!

    Fat Women are much meaner !!
    Dated several after my divorce!!

    Now i date sexy confident self sufficient "opinionated"(bitchy) hott women.

    But ironically i have still been dating the same one for 11 yrs !! I still spend a sh!t ton of money on her though. L0L. Might as well be married !!

    When she totaled her car. It is "up to you" to get me a better one or get this fixed right"

    So I feel your pain !!! ... sigh.

    FWIW, although my current wife is an excellent driver (and friend/wife/etc), my first wife, although very beautiful/hot/smart, was also a totally self-absorbed bitch, who totalled her car, then insisted on borrowing my 65 fastback mustang with 3/4 cam, high rise intake, 426 interceptor motor, and race kit modified C6 auto transmission (2100 rpm stall speed on torque converter, shifted in 1/150 second), because it had an automatic transmission and she couldn't drive a shift. Totaled that the third day she drove it (into the back of a NYC garbage truck on the Long Island Expressway during rush hour, right by RegoPark for those of you familiar with the area). She hid out and didn't come home for 3 days.

    It was in 1973, but it was original (64 1/2 - 66) series Pony. British racing green. It was beauty, and very fast. 4.5 mpg, 101 octane (cheap back then at Sunoco)

    Stop it !!!

    You're just killing me.

    Sweet@ss Ride mangled like that.

    Sh!t ton of money time and LOVE to get her like that!

    Just think how much fun you lost cause of that little accident. Not to mention veeeery hard to replace and even harder to tweak her like that!!!

    Btw: had to mix my premium leaded with aviation fuel. 454 LS 6 balanced blueprinted Torquer Manifold Water Injected and special Radiator to keep her cool. Holley 780 Double-Pumper and Quick Click shifter on Turbo 400 drag trans 500 Horses stock +++++
    Had to use welding wire run to the trunk where i moved the battery so all that could fit in the front. Had to move the firewall back too :p
    58 Corvette Convertible Metal Flake Blue w Wht Hood scoops and Air injection hood from a Mustang.

    Those were the days. !!

    Sorry she trashed it.
