Just got back from the hospital. Lost #3557 in a spinout this morning along Hwy 90 heading into Downtown San Antonio at 6AM. Can't tell from the dashcam if I was nudged from the rear or just had really bad traction, but the car just spun out in the rain and was hit by other cars in the process before finally impacting the center divider.
Had some great times with this G1, as it replaced my first ever Silver G1 back in 2014 from a rear end collision. At 537K miles it still had plenty of life in her. It just got repaired from a minor rear end collision a week before, got some fresh rubber on it, and got a nice little tune up in the process.
Anyhow, although I know I can find another, I was really hoping to keep her going to a million. She was incredibly reliable for me and was a faithful companion in my life. I gotta give it to Honda, the G1's body can take a serious beating. My first G1 took an 80MPH hit from the rear while I was stopped in traffic, and this G1 was hit by three different cars which eventually slammed me into the concrete divider.
When insurance finally comes around to give me the bad news, I'd love to know if anyone out there has some space in TX for me to part her out, as I live in an apartment without any reasonable way to farm out whats good. The car is otherwise intact from the quarter panels going forward. I'd love to at least salvage what I can and pass on some parts to whoever can help me get her scrapped properly. A proper front end for the @CherryBomb
, a rebuilt transmission, a running engine, a Bumblebee Beemax maybe, some wheels, great glass, the list goes on.
Anyhow, I don't currently have pictures of the carnage, but let's remember the great times I had with it.
Buying her back in November 2014 after losing my first silver G1.
