Wow that Fiat is one safe Car

2day at 5 11 pm Az time a Fed Ex truck under 26.000 Pounds rear Ended my Kugel at 30 Mph on the Way 2 Work pushed me and the freshly detailed 500 into the Rear of a Ford.. Suv.... Wow them Airbags even did not go off...... I should have ordered the De Luxe Package......

Damage on the Fiat about 5 k..... Mods and Oil Change not included........ Wow that little Car survived a rear End and a push into a Ford Suv..... Try 2 drive me Home yes i stopped at Qt for a cold 6 Pack 2 easy the Pain in my Back........... About when i hit the the Inter Section the Engine Light came on..... i pulled into the Walgreens Parking Lot opened the Hood the Radiators looked like a German Pretzel the Fan Blades shaved with every Turn..... Time for a Heini...... 4 the Car......


Refilled the Overflow with Heini..... yep that Fiat got me Home died in the Drive...... will not restart............


Moral 2 the Story..... that Fiat is really a safe Car........


Ps like any good Dumb Ass old School Modder i turned 2 my Mechanic ask him take out what we installed.... i can,t bend over my Back hurts.....

i need them Springs short Shifter etc etc for the Abarth........


Tomorrow a Appointment with a Polish Nurse...... Omg.... i hope she will be Cute..... the last Polish Nurse i had loved Needles and loved to hurt Germans...............

You know i screwed up 2 Nite i was in a hurry.........normally i kiss my Irish Car Bomb Good bye..... look at them Boobies without a Bra 2 keep me smiling on the Road and have a Reason 2 come Home.....

2 Nite i hopped in the Fiat waved at her....... because i was running late.... Tonight i finally understood no Matter what you love 2 Drive it does not Matter an Slk an R170/171/172 or in my Case a Fiat.......


Life is 2 short not 2 kiss your Betty Good Bye.... watch her make your fav Breakfast in them old Shorts after the 1st Night of great Sex......


A shinny Slk Fiat or Trabant can be replaced...... ... your time on Earth..... is short....... i am just glad that i did not get Rear Ended by a Fed Ex Semi.........

As you all know i drive a Semi ......for a Living i know what happens if.....


I am just happy that my Back hurts laying with my Hounds on the Time out Sofa my Irish Carbomb getting me an Ice Cold Budweiser Topless........... a shinny Car can be replaced getting a cold Budweiser served Topless while in Pain laying on the Time out Sofa....... make her put in the Dvd Bandit and the Bear without a Bra is kinda priceless.....


Yep the Fiat might gonna be a write off for the Insurance..... i am just glad that my Irish Car Bomb listen 2 me.... when i told her stay Home i am fine..... there is no need 2 come down without a Bra 2 Direct Traffic on the I 10 Wb......


34 D,s without a Bra would be Gridlock on the I 10 Wb......during Rush Hour......

LOL all joking aside thx 4 letting me Vent.........

Sorry to read about your mishap Flossy, pleased that you're not badly hurt.

If the little Fiat is written off, and you get loads of compensation from Fed-Ex for your pain & injuries, are you going back to an SLK?

What they said, and remember, FedEx has deep pockets - maybe a R172 in your future, and hey - I bet the airbags *and* the explosive hood would go off! ;-)

O my, sweet Daniel, I am so glad you're not too banged up. Have comfort in knowing that your doctor will prescribe a gorgeous masseuse to be at your beck and call to gently caresse your injured back (no Polish nurse with needles).

While enjoying a sensual, tantalizing, but albeit therapeutic massage imagine yourself snuggled securely in the seat of a R172...hear the deep rich roar of an accelerating 55 AMG engine...Betty's in teenie weenie bikini's swooning all over you when you park to grab a 6 pak...and pulling the beast into your fully decorated man cave with cold a/c and comfy beds for them hounds...and a MB calendar with scantly clad Betty's on the wall...all smiling at you, the Berliner.

What more could a German want? No more Fiat!

Hope you get well quickly. xoxo

Quite sorry to learn of the incident Daniel. Very glad there were no major injuries other than a strained and stiff back. The airbag may not have deployed because the speed at time of frontal impact against the Ford was less than 15mph? (Does not mean the force was not significant)

Hope you get better soon.

Great to hear that you're OK my friend. This place wouldn't be the same without you. Interesting how events help give us perspective on life.

Sit back and watch the Olympics. Unfortunately unless you have your laptop tied into your TV you'll miss the German teams - our coverage is almost exclusively US. Kinda like how golf tournaments always show Tiger even if he's 15 shots out of the lead.

Best Wishes

I think you are being sent a message.
Not long after you got the Fiat you ended up in urgent care with your blood pressure thru the roof
Now rear ended by a Fed Ex truck
Its time to come back to MB before its too late

Glad you're ok and glad the Fiat performed well safety wise. I'm a vehicle/occupant safety researcher. It's not surprising that the airbags didn't deploy from a rear impact. A little more surprising they didn't deploy when you were pushed into the other vehicle. As someone noted it depends on the speed and the direction of force.
