Each and every car we have back home has some fond memories for me to remember. It transported us through thick and thin safely to our desired destination though some accidents can't be avoided at times. Just like what happened to my sister when she was driving with mom, they were caught in a nasty accident and thank heavens they both came out safe and unharmed except for some scratches from the shattered window glass. Actually we never had any other big accidents like this even with our older cars. Looking at the damage at the driver's door you can tell the crosswind had a rough ride. It happened going home (if I'm not mistaken, sorry it was years ago) and not even too far anymore from a long drive. As sis was crossing a minor intersection there was a very fast truck which hit the left rear end and with the impact the crosswind swung incurring damage on the driver's side and the truck as well. My sis was shaken of course scared of what happened (feeling sorry too having the new car wrecked) but she was composed enough to snap photos of the incident. Even if she had her driver's license that time we still don't let her drive alone, mostly mom's with her. It was such a bad fate for our crosswind and it was later on brought to the shop for repair. I was at the office when the incident happened so i was just told about the details when my grandma called me up.

...sis & dad, hubs & elisse during our family trip using the same car...

...the big accident...

It was later restored to its almost original form but some mechanism got damaged with the crash impact. It still run pretty good but not as smooth and suave as how it was before the accident, I drove this car almost everyday. But during my recent conversation with mom she mentioned about canvassing new cars in Toyota & Honda looking for a replacement for the crosswind. Just like any other cars its value depreciates and will eventually need an upgrade. Perhaps I should be happy with the news, nevermind the old fond memories and think of the future! Hehe future ans in our future visit there back home and I can drive a new car! Back to road rage again! hehehehe! Just kidding, by that time "mommy" must drive more cautious and not be such a bad ass on the road. Definitely our baby will be with us on that trip home so cannot go crazy on the road.

I'm not sure if they have plans of selling this lancer which I loved to bring at most times. It's old and needs constant maintenance so I think they better have this sold and replace it. It served us for many years already. It would be nice to upgrade to volvo but I think suggesting it to them will make mom want to hit me on the head. She would always consider function over luxury so i can see her settling on more regular car brands and models.

Last but not the least is this vios. I guess they will keep since it's the latest of all and so far in good running condition and not being used as much as the other 2 cars. This car shared the biggest memory of my life because we used this as our bridal car. Yes I was there inside the car but you can't see me =P It matched our bridal motiff, matt gold so thanks to my grandma who lend this to us. She said that's part of her wedding gift but just car use and she didn't give the car to us. How I wish she did! hehe! I like honda cars better because of the spacious interior and they said it's not a gas guzzler. Is it true? Anyways here's honda URL for some reference.

    She never drove that, we were the drivers and her late husband was the one who drove the vios.

    The accident was really bad but we're very fortunate nothing bad happened to the family members.

    Looks like everybody here loves honda!
