The windshield got cracked when the airbag shot my left hand up there. I got away with bruises and scratches but no broken bones.
Sold the car to a Junk Yard the day after the accident. Had minimimal insurance so no chance of getting any money back :?

Well shoot. That stinks. I'm glad you're ok. I'm sorry that happened. I remember reading your original write up of your work and being impressed that you did all that and got a car back to health.

I know it may be tough to talk about at this point, but did you like the S40? I saw in another thread that you also have an s70. What did you think of the s40 compared to the s70? I know it's smaller and all. I'm just curious what how you felt about the s40 in general.

Thanks
