Before Christmas, my 92 Classic got t-boned while I was making a left
turn on a left turn arrow. The lady came out of nowhere. Kind of made
the car a "U", in a mild way. It was toast. It was a quiet hit. No glass
or plastic broke. Just nailed the passenger door. So ends an era for a
car I bought in 1999 with 97k miles. It ended up with 302k miles and was
going strong. I ended up selling the car "as is" on Craigslist. The
person who bought it is going to convert a Sentra to an SE-R. I'd like
to see how that comes out, but when I called to give him the salvage
title, he wouldn't call me back. Go figure.
When the insurance company was trying to figure the value, they plugged
in the mileage. Just for fun, I had them plug in 200k miles. The value
stayed the same. I guess when you hit 200k or maybe less than that, hit
don't matter how many miles you put on her.
I miss the car. It was fun and reliable. I did more with that car than
any other I've owned. I felt like I could do most repairs. I'll stay on
the list, but I've enjoyed being here and the people I've met.
Ironically, I was reading about a base Nissan Versa in Consumer Reports.
They were noting how the base Versa had roll up windows, manual door
locks and manually adjustable seats. Hmmm, sounds like my SE-R. It's
amazing how expectations change.
92 SE-R, probably in pieces somewhere
