My donations? Where are my donations? If I totaled my car I wouldnt be asking for donations to buy another one. A car is a luxury item. I'm blessed to be able to afford it. I would work to buy another one. If my words discourage somebody else from doing something then that's their problem. Words are just that, words. If you don't like what I have to say you don't have to abide by it. I will say how I feel and that is that.

As for my attitude towards others, your right, my attitude isn't for everybody. You like me or you don't. I have plenty of friends so obviously its not as bad as you make it out to be. However maybe I should change it just for you....haha yea right.

She said they were dispatching a trunk and to not go near the car, then hung up.

I have an agreed value policy on my car because I know it is the only way I will get what I have out of mine if something like this happened...and I bet I would still not be fully compensated for all I have in it. As a community, this is a cool thing to do.

There are plenty of places accepting money for Tornado victims and Sandy victims alike.

Its nice to help someone out every once in a while, whether it's a necessity or not. Sometimes bad things happen to good people and there isn't any harm in helping if you want to.

My coworker died in a motorcycle wreck that was his own fault. We had two benefits for his family. One benefit was to help with the funeral expenses, then a few months later we had another one so his 4 year old kid could have a decent Christmas, that's right we donated so he could get toys and stuff and his Mom wouldn't have to stress over bills.

Doesn't matter to me if there's a donation thread. A little surprised Stig would accept donations for this kind of thing. Meh

Did you have Lambo doors on it which made the car decide to do what Lambos do - spontaneously combust?
