My First Car – Datsun 120Y


This is a photo of my first car, a Datsun 120Y. This was from over 20 years ago now and this car I also lost in a car accident. I was struck from behind and the impact caused my seat to shear off and go backwards, so I was unable to see what was happening. In short, the car was no longer able to be used because of damage to the chassis. There are a lot of good memories associated with this car.

Car Accident – 22 February 2008


I didn’t actually take this photo – it was taken by my brother while I was in hospital. The car accident occurred on the 22nd February 2008. I have no memory of the accident, but have been told that I hit a tree and went over the side of a mountain. I was told that if I hadn’t been spotted by a passing vehicle I would have been dead by morning. The accident occurred towards dusk. The impact of the accident occurred on the drivers side of the car (I’m in Australia) and the photo shows clearly why my right side suffered the most injuries as a result of the accident. What happened? I have no memory of the cause of the accident or anything about it.

So this photo doubles up for both my posts today (which means there is only one).
