Car-less in Seattle

"Eight weeks ago, my 18-year-old son slammed our 19-year-old Volvo station wagon into the rear of a high-clearance pickup. All the people were fine. So was the pickup.

But the Volvo wasn't. Repairing it would have cost many times the Blue Book value. So we accepted the insurance company's check for $594 and bid farewell to the family car."
