Originally intended to document my experience of DeLorean ownership, focus is often radical and strange, boring and obtuse.

Keeping Firemen Busy

Bad angle. Can't see all the bodies. Shucks.

On Saturday night we travelled to Toronto to have a nice dinner with our friend Tonton, following the directions spoken by our sweet silver NAV-U GPS, which we've dubbed "Lady". And yes, the Styx song routinely gets sung whenever we say her name.

Anyway, about ¾ of the way there I noticed a fire engine in my rearview, lights blazing.

I've never had a fire engine blast up my rear end on a six-thousand lane highway, so I wasn't sure what to do. Some people were pulling over, while others were slowing down. I was in the middle and had nowhere to go, so I slowed down and let the truck pass me.

Within 3 seconds, literally, the fire engine (A) stopped in front of us, partially blocking our view of the accident and the tow truck (B) who, not-surprisingly, greedily arrived at the scene first.

It would seem that Jimmy Dillnuts, driving a VW Golf this time, decided he didn't want to use his brake pedal, and gave a Nissan Murano his patented move - a good butt-ramming. From what I could see as I rubbernecked, the Golf suffered extreme damage to the hood and bumper area while the Nissan was relatively unscathed.

After dinner with Tonton, we sped through the downtown in his diesel Golf, and landed at the trendy Foundation Room. It was dope. When we left I snapped this picture of a Chrysler 300C whose owner decided parking on the sidewalk was trendy.

Toronto. I should go there more often. I'll get great accident photos because the entire Dillnuts family must live there.

Teehee.....you said butt-ramming.

I love Toronto, but the driving in and out part is insane. I wish they'd get cracking on the whole teleporting thing.

You're so obsessed with accident photos. But then again, every single entry of yours always comes with a photo.

Btw, I meant to ask you what's DMC? Devil May Cry? Hehe... yeah, I'm still PS-ing because people around me won't let me buy the Wii. Bah.

Venge - nice to see you're hanging around. DMC stands for DeLorean Motor Company. I wanted to use DMC.blogspot.com, but some Devil May Cry fan already took it, then never EVER updated it. If those people won't let you buy the Wii, just steal one.
