the car that's seen better days
we went up and got our first look at the car today, and wow. all i can say is that we are very thankful to God that stan is alive to tell about it. we read through one of the police reports today, and found out that the drunk driver hit stan at about 55mph.
we are grateful to the engineers at ford for designing a car that did exactly what it was supposed to do when smashed by another car. we were both so impressed with how well the car protected the passenger area of the car.

what the rear end of a cougar looks like when someone hits it at 55mph from a dead stop.
what the rear end of a cougar is SUPPOSED to look like. (the pic is from some random car site, that i forgot to keep track of... sorry random cougar owner!)
a good shot showing where the rear end of stan's car used to be.
what it looks like when you have airbags deploy. stan says he'll never forget that smell. he says it smells like burning hair. and that he'll never own a car without them now.
thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers over the past few days. they mean a lot to our family. much love for a happy & safe new year from all of us.
