Kendall Toyota/Scion didn't want to let the loaded 3.0 go for what I wanted to pay. But they did get more regular xB's in so there was a good selection. I got a TCM auto(for more relaxed freeway driving and so the whole family could drive it if need be. Was a painless buying experience that took about an hour. Drove home then me and my two sons went out for a cruise. At the light nearest our house we were in the left turn lane behind a semi(on Roosevelt blvd) the cross street was Beltline which is actually a 4 lane freeway.
The light changed and the semi started to move(turning left), then there was a flash and the next thing I saw was a PW xB spinning in a cloud of dust and light. This all happenend at about 5:30 PM so traffic was heavy.
A late model Ford Taurus ran the light and hit the xB going 50-70 MPH(depending on which witness you talked to! And there were lots.) We pulled over, I ran to the xB to find a very nice lookin young lady about 22-24. I asked her if she was alright. She said she thought so but her neck hurt. We had her pull her car out of the roadway and I got in with her and stayed until paramedics came. The semi driver went and detained the Taurus driver so I don't know what happened on the other side of the intersection.
I told her that I just recently totalled a 06 PW. And I knew how she felt. She said she had had it five months and it had replaced a Civic(just like me). Turned out we even go to the same body shop. Paramedics and a male friend arrived so we split. It was just f**kin weird and a bit surreal.

Whoa! That had to be a creepy feeling, almost like looking at your accident from a different viewpoint (sort of)....

Damn! Good that she wasn't hurt badly, and nice of you to stay with her like that. I know JUST what that intersection is like (I had relatives in Eugene, and used to always bail off Beltline at Barger, about 1 1/2 miles from there).

Congrats on the new TCM! Enjoy!

She was tellin me how she had a trailer hitch installed and used the box to tow quads to the beach. She was very upset about the damage to her box. More so than the pain in her neck...:(
