Last week our little Civic was declared totaled, but only after the insurance company required us to “authorize a complete tear down” of the vehicle. Afterwards, we went out behind the auto body shop to get things we had left in the car and say goodbye. I love that they had put the front bumper in the passenger seat.
I can only claim knowing this car for a few months, but it has been with Gin since 2000. It was kind of a sad day. I’ll miss its curled and snarled upper lip (hood). It is nice that the insurance company is going to give us money, though. And we now have a special new friend that will be introduced as soon as we have pictures of it.
