View Full Version : My poor Sillycar got her face punched in :~(

I was on my way to a friend's place to bleed my brakes and tech the car out for an HPDE when heavy traffic and a fraction of a second worth of inattentiveness did her in :(. :slap:


I was cited for careless driving but am planning on fighting it. It was a sudden stop by one of the cars in front of us and even the guy I hit said he didn't think I was following too closely.

I haven't had the adjuster out yet, but I took it to a body shop that I trust and they said that unless State Farm is able to come up with some insanely inexpensive parts she's gone.

looks like my car after some bitch backed into me at night... lost my alltrac hood as a result. got a new hood and driver headlight at junkyard, and spent 400 for the whole front clip to be repainted, windshield sprayers shaved and fender repaired. Good as new now... well at some point Im going to replace the upper radiator support(jus had it bent back in place for now)

It'll buff out

Sorry about your car Jeff. What was it you hit? Airbags go off?

I ran into an '05 Camry, kept it all in the family at least :bigthumbu His bumper cover was fairly scratched up but probably repairable. He'll need a new absorber and I quashed his muffler some too.

I was braking hard when I hit him so it must have been close, but no the airbag didn't go off. I have to wonder if it would have been a more square hit resulting in less damage if my suspension was as hard as I wanted it to be. The camry was a champagne color, I'm not sure what the black shit came from.

Just got back from the adjuster. They totalled it so now the negitiations begin. Hope they don't lowball me.

I've started shopping already. So far I've found an '91 MR2 that's been badly neglected and I'll be looking at a '91 240sx tomorrow or Friday.
