Had the boxster for one day - now it's wrecked!

My family bought my mom a pristine 98 boxster. 48,000kms, no accidents with 2 year porsche certified warranty.

We had it for just over 24 hours.

My mom was stopped at a stop sign, an idiot in a GMC van runs the stop sign from the other direction, get's t-boned by a ford escort, The van spins 180 and crashes into my mom's car. The impact was so hard it pushed the porsche sideways into another truck.

Damage - at least...front bumper, hood, fender, radiator, headlight, rear passenger fender....who knows what else....it's definitely not drivable right now.

I f**ken hate that van driver.....

A terrible tale but be grateful that your Mom is okay.

Oh, she's fine, she was shook up and now she's really really mad. haha. We only had the car for a day but she really fell in love with it. It was a 5 spd too and she was just having fun booting around in it. Now by the time it gets fixed, summer's gonna be over.
