Well...after 12 years our 2000 Blue Passat is now at the junk yard. 2 weeks ago my wife was rearended in Renton by a motorcyclist which caused $6000 in damage. We also found out that it is not required for motorcyclists to have insurance in the state of Washington. The guy just got his bike a few weeks ago and he is OK...and luckily our insurance took care of us and we have another car but I realized as these cars get older they are more likely getting junked out. We did get $6400 for the car which had 124000 miles on it. I was surprised that we got that for the car. Anyways...that's my rant for the day.
