First off, glad they caught the S.O.B.!

Second, you're getting another F. WE ALL INSIST.
Replacing a car is much easier than replacing a loved one, but I understand your analogy. This is more like getting back the loved one you lost. Just find another silver '08 ISF, place your mods back on it with the settlement money, and just like that, everything is whole again!
Easier said than done, but it can certainly be accomplished.

Trust me. Stepping into, starting up, and driving another vehicle after having an F is just not the same. You'll miss the sound, you'll miss the power and feel, and ultimately regret not getting another F. Go get it!

Dude I'm glad to hear you're alive! Same thing happened to my mom in December with her ES350 but the guy wasn't drunk, just wasn't paying attention :-(

glad you're okay, thats the important thing. The F can be replaced. Good luck in the future at what you decide on.

Wow! Glad you're doing ok.

Brings back bad memories as I too was previously rear-ended by a drunk driver. The more days that go by, the more you will realize how truly lucky you are that it wasn't worse. Cars are just items that can be replaced....your health is something that is truly priceless.
