Case in point.
I spent much of the past month working to bring a car to my daughter in Tucson. We had a 2003 Sentra which my wife and I agreed we wanted to give this very brave and gifted but currently financially challenged offspring. I had new tires and a new stereo installed and spent five days driving the car to Arizona. I spent several wonderful days with my daughter who deeply appreciated the gift. It was a big step up from the bicycle she was using. This past Sunday she called us and tearfully reported the car had been hit in the middle of the night while it was parked in the street outside her apartment. The driver didn't stop and the car, which had no collision insurance, was too damaged to be worth fixing. The police said they'd keep a look out for a vehicle with a damaged front end but gave her little hope.
