:evil: My 03 GT just got hit by a high school student on his way to school. Said his tie rod broke. I didn't think they broke going straight. Insurance Co. tells me its most likely a total loss. Im pissed because I love that car, I do have a 91 GT but it needs some frame and rocker panel work. Any one do body work in Cleveland Ohio? Just had to get on here and vent a little. :unsure:

Yeah Im fine, just a little pissed about the whole thing. The car was in great shape to boot. My wife and I just had our first child and I can't really afford a new car right now. I do have pictures but not sure how to post them

Either uploading them through the gallery (http://www.celicatech.com/gallery/upload.php) and then hitting submit, or a picture hosting service (IE photobucket.com).

Note, not sure if the gallery has it's kinks worked out or not - but if not, your application will time out, or 404 - the pictures should have been successfully uploaded and can be viewed by going to your profile, and seeing your uploaded media (and consequently get the link too!)

Assuming its his fault, his insurance should fix or replace your car.

Insurence Co. gave me $6,100.00. I took the shift knob out of it before they took it away, just like that subaru comercial.

First time reading this...how exactly did this guy know his tie rod broke immediately after the accident? Seems odd. At least you are ok though, most important for sure.

First time reading as well. But it sounds like this joker knew his tie rod was broke prior to and was coming up with an excuse for his stupidity.

Alexanders Body in Akron Ohio is by far the BEST body place I have ever seen / been to. They have been working on my family's cars for 25 years. I have seen friend's cars, family members, etc, brought back to life with high quality work and class. Great place if you can get there.

Sorry guys about the pictures, I will have them up soon. The kid ether knew about the damage or just made it up on the spot. I think he was texting and hit my car. As for what I'm getting next, a 2011 Dodge Challenger RT. No worries though my heart will always remain a Celi fan I still have my 91 GT, needs some body work, weather is really bad in Cleveland and just kills cars but I plan to get it into the shop soon.
