ya, i am doing as good as I can be. I'm super sore but that is to be expected. Mostly just my neck but I am sure glad that I didn't have anyone ridding with me. They would be in pretty bad shape...

Ouch! And that is why I don't drive a Geo Metro or other small car on the streets, too many bad drivers not paying attention.

Lol this is a bad mentality. If everyone drove a small car it wouldn't be dangerous. But all it took was one ******* to say "i will be safer in this behemoth suburban" to start a misguided safety arms race of vehicle size. Lol, anyways sorry to see the wreck.

Well that's not completely true either. I was hit by a small Ford Focus and look at the damage it did to my car. Even a small Geo Metro weighs close to 1700 lbs. Then add 45 - 50 mph and its going to hurt. Cars are dangerous no matter the size.

Okay yeah, i should've said AS dangerous. What i was trying to say was, if you're driving around in a Geo Metro and Get hit by a ford focus, you're a whole lot safer than being hit by a GMC Yukon XL in the same Metro. But if everybody says, "I'm going to be safe and buy a huge car to protect myself in an accident" at the same time, then you no longer are in a Yukon being hit by/ hitting a bunch of metros, you're in a Yukon being hit by a bunch of Yukons.
