Poor Sparkles...

She was a good car to me, and protected me from a runaway Yukon with no brakes slamming into the back of her. A disposable camera fell underneath the brake pedal of the Yukon so she couldn't stop in time. Dangerous. She's getting towed to a salvage yard today to have the assessment done to determine if she's fixable or a total loss. I hope she'll be able to be fixed, I really like that car. But I'm reminded that it's just a car, and no one was hurt (I don't even have whiplash or soreness- I saw her coming so I was able to tense up which probably helped.) so we're lucky.

OMG!!!!! i am SO glad you are ok!! those are the worst, that's how i lost my starlette - my little red miata. a mercedes freaking raped her away on the 405 in a rear-ending. awful! hope the outcome with your sparkels works out either way!

Thanks Kelsey! I didn't know you drove a Miata, I can totally picture that! :) Haven't heard yet about Sparkles' fate, but I'm looking into a replacement Sparkles just in case (metallic gold Prius! Sparkles 2.0!)...
