"Bingbe" was our first ever family car. The first new car my wife had ever owned. The car we brought both our daughter's home from the hospital in, the car we took our first family road trips in, the car we took C to her first day of school in, the car that delivered us safely over the 1300 miles from LA to our new home in Oklahoma.
At the time, "Bingbe" was only 6-years old with less than 55,000 miles on her. Practically brand new for a Honda.
Friends and family have never seen the extent of damage done by the 16-year old in a 1/2-ton pick up, so as a tribute and memorium of sorts, I thought I'd post a photo taken of the car after the wreck.
The pick up that stopped "Bingbe" in his tracks could have been driven away -- had it not been laid out flat on it's side. It has since been repaired and I'm sure is back crusin' the country roads, with a hopefully more mature and aware teenager behind the wheel.
Them bowties are tough trucks.
