R.I.P. Hot pocket

This Saturday brian's jeep salsa aka hot pocket was taken too early from this earth when another driver ran a stop sign and they collided.

He was only 2 blocks from getting home too, making him a statistic:) The fire department had to use a giant crowbar to open the hood to turn off the horn. Luckily the ambulance had to leave with no one in it. Brian suffered minor injuries and the other driver and his children were fine. According to the witnesses it should have been worse.

However, after his adjuster looked at the car we got the awful call that it was totaled. We are so sad. It was the first vehicle we bought brand new off the lot. She only had 50 miles when we took her home in dec of 2004 and only 58k when she passed. So many wonderful adventures have been enjoyed in our jeep.



We decided it's not her fluids but her tears!


Finally got the hood open.


All that remains from the jeep. A small part of the hood latch we found in the street.

that was a very cute post, although I am sad to see your car is now totaled. Maybe you will get to buy another new car, which is really, really fun if you don't have to be the one bartering with the dealer.
Too funny that you named it "Hot pocket".
