Words can't say how I feel about this... I don't really feel like talking about it right now, so I will just let the pictures do the talking...

Edit: This post kinda explains it... http://forums.turbobricks.com/showpo...&postcount=111












And thanks Doug for the now much more appropriate avatar.

There is still alot of life left in that car that you can transfer... your next 242 (hopefully) will be nicely equiped! Hows that left Eiker?

Thats probably going to be the plan. I am going to see first if it even can be fixed, and if not, the engine is fine, and the Eikers are fine as well as the suspension and interior. All will probably get transfered to my other 242.

Not saying it cannot be fixed but it looks as if the frame is bent pretty badly.

But do tell us what happened when you can.

I'm also thankful that I commute on the train to work, so I can take my time in getting this fixed or building the next. I will only have weekends, but hell... it might be fun once I get over the shock of losing this... if I ever do...

If I was you and had money I would rebuild the front as a tube chassis with a stock volvo crossmember .. (not kidding)

Also sorry to hear that your not dead and I'm glad that your 240 did its job and kept you alive..

I gotta agree with Chris on this one. It'll take time. I simply can't imagine what would happen if that happened to my 140, but at the same time I know if it came down to it, it would give it's life in exchange for mine, just as yours did for you.

Glad to hear you're safe. Relax for a bit, be happy you're still hear, and when you get to it start the next plan of attack for another 242. You've got a heck of a start with parts from that one!

So what happened? If you don't mind saying, that is. Did they hit you or...?

I know how you feel. When I wrecked my car I wanted to die, and it wasn't nearly as bad. I know that doesn't help much, but you've got the whole board that clearly cares about you, and it sounds like you live close enough to other T-Brickers so that they can help you recover, in-mind and in-body (physically and vehicularly). You have nothing but progress to look forward to, and for me that's the best part.
