Yeah... My mom wrecked the Blazer this morning. Don't worry... she walked away and is okay for the most part. Thank god. Anyways, it was foggy and the roads were wet... some deer were on the road, she hit the brakes and tried to avoid hitting them. She swerved off the road, hitting a bank and a huge rock. It flew through the air, flipped over, and landed on its roof. It then slid for about 20 feet. It looks totaled to me.

Here's where she wrecked:

Heh. I guess we can stop making fun of that Blazer now since it held up well enough.

Good to year your mom is okay, and yes, this happens in threes (Bimmer, myself, you).

Hole-eee $h!, man!

Jesus H. Tapdancing Christ in a Chevrolet, dude. That was unexpected, espescially the interior shot.

Glad someone could walk away from that.

Wow! That's one hell of a wreck, glad your Mom's ok. I bet it shook her up pretty good.

It also looks like there are worse vehicles than a Blazer to roll. The passenger compartment did its job very well.

Sorry Vipes, not so fast. In my professional opinion, that'll buff right out. :thumbsup:

Glad your mom's ok! Flipping a vehicle over is no fun, I know.

Now she can pick out something different, and hopefully, less trouble-prone.

Holy hell...glad she's OK. Looks like she got covered in mud.

Yeah... she did. As did her leather coat. Probably ruined... not just from the mud, from the glass, rocks, and $h! like that too.

I don't know about that... I know how I fit in the Blazer and let me tell you... my head would have been full of roof and windshield... it's worse in person than it looks in pics. Well... unless you were talking about the rear passengers...? :P

Yeah... hopefully. That is the one good thing about her wrecking it. We'll get rid of the POS and get something alot (literally) better. Well... hopefully, anyways.

Anyways, guys... you want to know the most ironic part about her walking away practically unscathed? She wasn't wearing a seatbelt. Amazing, if you ask me... I can't believe how she lucked out.

But thanks for the kind comments. Though she can annoy, I still love her and wouldn't want to see her get hurt. The feeling I had when I had heard the news that she flipped the Blazer... was not at all a pleasant one. I didn't want to believe it being that the Blazer is unsafe, she never wears a seatbelt, and she drives like a maniac... I could only expect the worst upon hearing that. I'm so glad she isn't hurt.

I'm glad you're mom is alright Vipe, she was very lucky, especially without a belt on.

You know I must say I have more respect for older cars as of late. The other day my friend's Cavalier got rear-ended by a Mercury Villager. That van's front end got totaled and had fluid leaking out of it. His car has a slightly loose, but not bent bumper and the tailpipe is a little squished, but from a distance you can't tell it got hit. And a month or so ago my SHadow got T-Boned by a big Ol' Oldsmobile. I was able to drive away, he wasn't...all I need to do is replace teh fender, or maybe I can even get the dent out after getting it off. Is that hard to reshape it?

But anyway, too bad about the Blazer, you could fix it though! :P Hope your replacement is nice (maybe an Outlook?) ^_^

Wow. You're mom's fortunate she wasn't seriously hurt. The roof suffered lots of deformation. I hope she starts to buckle up.

Holy cow, BV! Quite an episode of an accident, eh?

Glad to know your Mom is OK ... can hardly believe she came out of that unscathed. But, stranger things have happened ;).

glad to hear she's ok! but at least now the blazer won't be such a thorn in your side.

actually, oddly, the typical rap on that style blazer as far as safety was that its roof structure was weak and quick to deform.

Most importantly, Mom's ok.

Mom, (apple pie) and Chevrolet...a fortuitous combo that kept your mom safe.

Was that apple pie she was carrying, or chocolate pie?

I'll bet she's stiff and sore today, but that's better than being in a full body cast, stuck in a hospital bed in traction. Tell her to fasten her damned seatbelt!

I'm glad to hear she's okay. That must have been so frightening for her!

So, when is it not considered insensitive to discuss replacements? :AH-HA_wink:

Wow, that's a pretty gruesome beating the Blazer took, but it gave its life for your mom. I'm glad she's OK.

As far as replacements go... it won't be a new vehicle. We'll barely be able to afford a used one. We still owe alot on the Blazer... about what it's worth and what our insurance would probably give us. We are pretty much screwed... always were, really. The only positive thing I can say is that my grandpa is willing to help out a little bit if he needs to. Either way... it's not looking pretty.

Alright, a tiny and most likely worthless update. We're looking at POS's. Yep... and not "we", "them". They won't let me have a say in what they get. If they get another POS, it's their fault they can't let me find them a good car. Just an FYI if you think I'm exaggerating... they're looking at a few Cavaliers and some Grand Ams like mine.... Yeah. :P

Our limit looks to be around $4k or $5k. Doesn't that suck? They won't consider payments either. I swear... they're going to get screwed with another POS. What they need to do is get a decent car... pay with monthly payments (they couldn't be that much for a nice car around $10k or less, can they? A new Cobalt is about $199/mo). Go with something that won't fall apart on us like the Blazer literally did and something that will be good on gas (not a Metro, obviously, but again, not like a Blazer with it's gas sucking V6).

Personally, I'd like to see them get a nice Impreza, Prelude, Civic (hey... find me a better compact made in the 90s), or even an Accord or something like that. Actually, although I don't want them to get a Toyota, a last gen Solara is pretty nice for a Toyota. A newer Grand Am wouldn't be all that bad either... our old '00 SE was basically trouble-free (except for the damn brakes and after she wrecked it, it developed problems). Hell, most anything that's atleast only a few years old would be alright with low mileage and such. Obviously avoiding Blazers, I mean. :D

But that's just me...
