Not mine. Mike, My roommate's (well, ex-roommate, he just moved in with his girlfriend). He was in an accident this morning. Anotehr case of someone pulling out in front of someone driving on a main thoroughfare. He was doing about 45 and a woman pulled out across 3 lanes of Independence Blvd and was going way too slow, so he smacked into her after leaving skid marks. I haven't seen the car but we're gonna go get pictures this afternoon. He said the passenger side and front are pretty well funked. Happened at about 8:00 this morning I suppose as he showed up here at about 9:30. He's fine though, just pissed.

::phew:: ya scared me there. I thought it was yours. I'd hate to see all the work you have in your sound system go to waste. It does suck for that other guy though. I know how it can be with people pulling out. They do it so much around here I got used to it.

Vultures.. ;)

Do ya think there's any chance of the car being repaired or is it a wash? Here's hoping it can be repaired..we shouldn't have to lose any of these cars to the junk yard..it's just not right..junk yards are for Fords. :D

People need to fucking learn to drive. I have had to many people pull out in front of me. Or turn in front of me and dont speed up. So either a) Smack the shit out of the back of there car or b) lock the brakes up.
I'm tired of it....I'm mounting paintball guns where the foglights should be.

The front end is obviously done for, cross frame of the front end is damaged. radiator and both fans. But the engine and trans are untouched. Engine starts and runs fine. Fuse/relay box is broken from it's mount but everything inside is intact - evident in the fact the car runs. Passenger side front quarter panel is miffed. Front suspension and steering all looks to be intact and untouched. There is a slight bend in the main frame in front of the suspension, the part right under the air filter, in front of the tranny/motor mount. Personally I think they'll probably go for fixing it. If not, whoever lands this as salvage is really getting a gem as the motor is fine, has aftermarket clutch and exhaust, and full interior and all body panels except for hood, front fascia, and left front quarter panel. Passenger door is even fine despite the qtr panel being pushed backwards.

Anyway, here's a couple pictures of the car.

The best body shop in Charlotte.. that people told me about is Chevy. dealership on Ind. blvd. They fix BMW and benz mostly but quality is good. If they decide going to fix the car. better take it there :)

Oh NEVER go to Wilbourn body shop next to Scott Clark Toyota. Trust me, my friends went there for their cars and IT WAS SHITTY JOB..

That car is far from totaled. It'd be a damn shame to salvage it from minor front end damage!

Looks like it's time to do the '99 front end conversion to me :D :D

I know it's shitty to have to go through this crap, but sometimes you really can make lemonade from lemons.
