My Vigor saved my life

Hey guys, I'm new to this forum, I wanted to share this with people who'd get it like I do.

Dad bought an '92 Acura vigor about 8 years ago, to replace mom's car, but she didn't like it, and dad loved it, so it was his car, and he took really good care of it, and replaced the motor, and transmission to get it ready for me to go to college. He bought himself a new car when I got my license in march, and I got the vigor. I loved that car, it suited a young guy like me perfectly, I bought a new radio unit that plugged into my phone, and the stock stereo was really nice. So fast forward a few months, and I was driving down the interstate, minding my own business, when some lady in a 94 camaro reached down for a bottle of water, and somehow managed to run all the way across the median, and t-boned me. She hit me in my door, and slid all the way down the car, and ran off into the woods on the other side. I can't post pics evidently, but pm me, and I'll give you the photobucket album link

The Vigor's thick and solid doors has always impressed me, but thankfully have never had to put it to the test. I'm glad you're ok. How's the Vigor?

Sorry for the late reply, I've been busy gearing up for college, the Acura is absolutely demolished, there's a huge crator in the side of it, both doors on the driver side were ripped off the car. It actually started ripping the car in half along the floorpan of the back seat, it's separated all the way past the middle of the car. It's absolutely a miracle that I survived, the people at the wrecker company couldn't believe I was alive still when they saw the wreck

Sorry about your lost but the most important part is your here and alive. The legend and vigors are well built cars.

Just a few of my JDM pieces! I'm moding my sedan after the Alpha and the Alpha Touring Honda Legends but with a custom twist to it!

Agreed, as much as we learn to love our cars, as long as we live to enjoy the feeling of getting a new one. As long as you are safe and sound that is what matters. College well be great man. You will love it!!!
