My first guess is that, for whatever reason, the thought of that promised car is that thing she held on to in her head to focus on.  A car is a symbol of freedom and escape after all.

Cool. I hope nothing but absurdly nice things happen to her and her family for the rest of their lives. They deserve random acts of kindness everyday forever.

While I feel sorry for all the 3 women I am especially sad to hear about Michelle Knight. It seems like she has it the 'worst' not only during the ordeal while in captivity but now that she is freed she probably has the least amount of support and familial ties.
I hope good things happen to all 3 of them but I especially hope more so for this Michelle gal.

bigbobowski: so is this where Chevrolet is supposed to contact the family to thank them for the product placement and let them know a new Camaro is on the way. (with a truck full of micky d's). I refuse to believe the thought of a clapped out 86 monte enabled this woman to endure the living hell she went through.


Then you don't know anything. According to Jaycee Dugard, the one thing that kept her going was seeing the moon and knowing that her mother could also see it. POW's have commented that it was often one single "little" thing like fishing with a brother or a cone from the local ice cream stand that kept them going. Amanda used to go to car shows with her grandpa and he promised her this car when she could drive. That was a tangible future coupled with a memory of love for her. Of course she would cling to it.

I also really feel bad about Michelle Knight. She was being abused and was raped. She had a son who was taken from her because her mother's boyfriend was abusive. She got kidnapped, abused and raped by this creep. He kidnapped two others who were searched for by their families. Not only was it sick to make the other two watch the reports of their kidnappings and searches, including reports on America's Most Wanted, but you don't have to project too far to think that the sicko used the fact that HER family didn't search for her against her. She was forced to act as midwife when Amanda gave birth under threats of death if Amanda or the baby dies, all the while dealing with FIVE forced miscarriages.

Then, after getting free, the other two have families and homes all decorated with balloons and flowers to go to where all she has to look forward to (as far as she knows) is either the abusive home she had before or nothing. I hope to God (or whatever TPTB are) that this woman finds some measure of peace and happiness.

WTFDYW: Dadoody: I really feel bad for that Michelle Knight girl.

All three girls had traumatic things happen to them, but Knight seems to have been a punching bag all her life. Beatings, rape, children take from her, siblings taken from her, then gets kidnapped, and has to deal with all that raping, beating, and abuse for 11 years in a basement.

Talk about a lifetime of suffering.

And nothing much gets mentioned about her in the news. I feel really bad for her.


Why? Because having your name plastered all over the news so idiots who have no concept of the hell you've been through can talk about it is the first step to healing?

What I really want to see is the story where she and her 13 year old son are reunited. Preferably today. I don't understand why this hasn't come up in the news yet.

I really hope this helps her get over the missing ten years.  It has to help that she can pick up on something she was getting ready to do before being tortu-raped for a decade.

And I hope that asshole dies awfully soon and violently, he's lived too long already.


Naw. There comes a point where crimes are so heinous that I'm against the death penalty. Life in a supermax concrete box would be a much more appropriate... and worse punishment than the sweet release of death.

jrat454: Am I the only one that thought "Areocoupe" when they said NASCAR edition, instead of a sticker package.

/would still like an 86 SS
// but I like my full size 76 Monte Carlo better


Yeah, except there is no such thing as a "Nascar Edition" from the factory.  The SS and the Aerocoupe SS came about though because of Nascar.

I was hoping that Chip Foose and the Overhauling crew would offer to fix it up, or even Chevrolet itself.  Bring the car back to bone-stock original condition to keep its collector car value.  Plus, since that is the car that she was promised, and had been thinking of during her captivity, it would be nice to give it to her exactly as she remembers it.

Then someone can always give her a practical car for her and her daughter to use on a daily basis.

Plus I hope the other two women get their dreams fulfilled too.

brewswane: a 1986 chevy is NOT a classic


Says someone who knows nothing about cars. Sure, most 1986 Chevies are not classics. But an 86 Monte Carlo SS NASCAR edition certainly is. Now, it isn't really MY kind of car, but I certainly can appreciate that that is in fact a hard to find and special car.

poe_zlaw: The Knight girl has been quiet-- not wanting to see her family, in the hospital-  It is none of my business, but I am very curious as to how the details of her pan out.  She is staying with the DeJesus family now.  I surely hope they all get the help they need to not only undo the mindfarking they all got while in captivity, but to catch up on life skills they probably wouldnt have gotten anyways had they not been held captive-- now they will all be millionaires- I surely hope that comes with free education, consulting, etc--  Not trying to be a dick here, but I am sure their families are all going to be coming out of the woodwork trying to get a piece of the financial action.  Its not like being locked in a basement for ten years (especially during the years you learn many basic life skills) allows you to learn to be financially responsible. I am being a bit prsumptious here, but I am willing to bet none of their families are well-off to the point they would be respectable of their new wealth.  Just being real.


she is NOT staying at the DeJesus family, they already stated she wasn't. At this time she's at a undisclosed place and wants some privacy

I feel for the little girl born to a rapist and his victim in captivity. Lots of people have farked up stories about their parents, but this kid would take home the prize.

also on the news she doesn't want to see her family at this time, I think I heard she was abused back then too from her own family

Who also were the only group who stopped looking for their missing child - and the abuser let the victims watch coverage of the searches. That has to be a mindfark of biblical proportions.

And yes, someone should give Danny Koker a call. Considering how big a softie he plays himself as, and considering the free publicity for Kount's that stuff like this gives, I think he'd take it in a heartbeat.


Except he should just do it without making an episode on the show about it. The media is already sensationalizing the whole story about Amanda and the other girls bad enough. No need to make a big deal about more of it on TV. Those girls may not necessarily like having a new story about them pop up in the media every 5 minutes.

Didn't her mother "forgive" the schmuck for his action?  If so, she has some major karmic retribution coming her way.
