On Car Wrecks and Super Van!

Yesterday, I was in a car wreck. And for the 2nd time since I bought her, our 2000 Chrysler Grand Voyager saved my life. While they were small, seemingly insignificant wrecks, if they had happened in my previous Buick Regal, Dodge Neon, Honda Accord or Ford Escort, the damage, and injuries would have been much worse!

She has gained several nick names, DeathStar being the first, because she is big, and grey, and you can see her coming. The newest names are SuperVan, and Battle Van!

When we got rear-ended, the damage to the other drivers 2005 Toyota Corola was MUCH worse. Her crumple zones did just what they were supposed to do, which is to crumple.....her grill was even with or close to her dash board. Interestingly enough, she said she had JUST paid off the car.

I think I'm about to retire our old girl, she has been good to us, but with baby on the way, we need something a bit newer, and with all the parts still intact.
