    Now that I've updated with the good news, I'll drop the bad news.

    On 12/17/14 (yes, almost 9 months to the day that I bought her), a tractor trailer clipped the DS rear quarter panel on my commute to work. It sent me for a scary spin and luckily the car stopped with about two feet to spare before slamming into a concrete barrier. I had a concussion, from hitting the soft top frame, along with some neck/shoulder pain (from previous encounter with tractor trailer in the P5) and left knee pain but I was able to walk into the ER under my own power. A witness who stopped was amazed that I wasn't hurt more or even killed given the size difference of the vehicles. I was out of work for six weeks due to the concussion and had several OT sessions. Felt like I was back in elementary school with some of the tests I was given. In April of 2015, I underwent arthroscopic knee surgery as PT wasn't helping with the pain or swelling. Here I had some torn cartilage due to the impact with the door card.

    Sadly, Lexi gave her life for me that day. Three days before Christmas the insurance company called to tell me that they deemed her a total loss.

    Here is the last picture I took of her.
