A little old toyota tercel was in the speed lane as well doing about 35 and swirving. It swerved off the road a bit, caught the end of a 2 foot 2x4 and poped it up into the air and it hit the nose of my car. It was very loud. I was sick to my stomach. I spent the next 5 miles driving wondering who I could get to match the paint on this thing. When I got out of the car I saw a huge mark and some little threads like when fiberglass breaks. I was so sick. I looked closer and it appeared the strands were actually plastic. it was the film. I broght the car back to Pepe, he pulled off the plastic and there was not even a scuff. That stuff is amazing! It saved me thousands in paint work. He has a big before and after picture on his wall. Got Lucky again!
SEE YOUR LUCKS ALREADY CHANGING FOR THE BEST.

Ya know, i kept bypassing this thread w/ the title not seeming interesting... until it got this long!!!
Gino... i feel for you... sorry dude... unreal luck.
A 50% reduction in incidents would be great.
In regards to insurance... there are guys who don't post much about their boats becuase the insurance guys are on here, lurking. At least, thats what they think.

Anyways, i'd take your luck w/ the toys you've got.

I to enjoy hearing of your escapades and the positive way you look at things...please keep it up. I still chuckle when I think about the little outboard dinghy you bought (and sold) a few months ago.
Exactly what I was thinking, its about the give and takes,, most super athletes give up a little in the scholar department, and most super intelligent give up a little in the athletic department, few people get it perfect in every category. Take pride in what you excell in, and if you get screwy luck in some departments, because of excellent luck in others,, so be it. You will be just fine. most people dont get up from the punches you've taken gino, take pride in the fact that not one punch has been able to knock you down yet, and should it, you'll be the one to get right back up. Im pretty sure seeing you get back up is why we all enjoy your postss so much.

Hi, I remember seeing you. After my truck disaster I decided not to put the boat back on the trailer. I dropped my boat at TNT, it ended up at LipShip's dock. I'm sure he wasdn't very happy with that which I complely understand. When I heard it was there Tuesday morning I cringed.
