    Hey guys , I haven't done a giveaway in a while , so here it is . I rented a 2008 Cadillac DTS to chauffer my daughter and her date to prom in may and I took her for a pre prom drive and pulled out in front of a 2007 Toyota Prius travelling 45 MPH, I didn't see them nor did they see me . We got t-boned with my daughter sitting in the passenger seat, air bags deployed preventing injury to her. On star sent emergency vehicles before we even realized what happened. The prius was totalled and no one was injured !! I just recieved the bill for the Caddy , which I believe will be taken care of by my Visa insurance, and all you have to do to win a 1660BR Leek and a Kershaw Torx tool is be the closest guesser to the actual charges billed to me by the rental agency. It includes all repairs , loss of use , towing, and storage fees. You must have at least 5 prior posts in this Kershaw forum to play and one guess per person per day . I will announce winner next weekend. Take a look at the pics and make your guesses , good Luck.

    I'm very glad both you and your daughter walked away from that one. Looks like a much slower speed than 45 mph ... they must be making those cars sturdier than I thought.

    After a little light research: 8,495.00.

    Bummer. :thumbdn::(

    Everybody who forgot to put dollar signs is making their guess in Zimbabwean dollars, right?

    including all the external charges i would say 14,675.

    i am glad no one was seriously injured. and i would like to say that people who drive priuses at 45MPH or above really don't get the point......

    Did you get the "bumper to bumper" insurance from the rental car agency?

    I'm going to say $15,200, might be high but there are two others in the area where I was going to guess first.

    no, the only way the Visa ins. works is if you decline rental agency insurance.

    wish I had a photo of the prius, when my wife arrived on the scene , she thought that the people in the prius were badly injured.

    Sorry to hear about the accident. Glad to hear you and your daughter are safe!

    The odds of it costing the same as mine are pretty slim, but I'll say $10,718.80.
