Shame, glad you are ok.
They can hardly say they couldn't see you, Zoe yellow doesn't exactly blend into the scenery.

Must have been a shock for you, at least your ok :), pity about your beautiful car though :(

I guess the chassis on the convertable is more vulnerable to knocks without the structural support from roof pillars etc.

What's going to happen the car now?

hope you backs not to bad and get yourself to a doctor asap. i know back pain it starts out small and ends up being incredibly painful and lasting way to long as my doc would say lift nothing heavier than a cup of tea for a good long while.
as the other bob said "Hopefully their insurance pay-out will turn you from Alfa-less to Alfa-ful in no time."

From memory I recall tree's are best avoided if poss.
I sideswiped one at 60ish and woke up in hospital.....
2 weeks later a workmate hit the same tree and died....
Didn't half slow me down for the last 15 years.

Hope everyone was ok.

I know of a very nice 98 protea red spider for sale if this eases the pain...

that's a horrible set of pics, but at least you got out in one piece. About your back pain, be very very careful, it might be getting better in a few days, but then a month later it could hurt even more, get it checked out by a specialist asap!
is there anything you can save from the car for the new one? seats, exhaust, floormats?
