It's Broken In Now.....

Recommended Posts

My new car is officially broken in!  A young kid came around the curve in my lane and side-swiped me, but no one was hurt and he had insurance.  (He said, "This is my first accident!"  I told him, "Don't let it bother you, we all get to enjoy the feeling sometime.")

And look at what it did to his truck:

The only thing I can figure that did the damage to the fender was his rear tire and wheel.  The long scratch/dirt streak on the truck is the height of my side-view mirror.  Look just behind the wheel well of his truck, that may be the mark of my fender.

That first big dent alway hurts the worst! Sorry about your car KB. (on the bright side at least your trunk should not leak with this one)

Ouchie. No body hits an old car Bob.  :D

 

Ain't that the truth!

 

I'll have to post some pics of my Tracker so you don't feel alone Bob. happy100.gif

 

Yeah, I was curious as to whether the hood was going to be hard to fix.  Is the metal creased?

The hood won't be hard to fix.  It's just a small dent and it's right on the edge of the hood.  My buddy has been painting cars for close to 40years and he says it will only take him a couple hours to fix.

Good.  I was worried that the hood had a sort of vertically placed "hair-lip" in it.

It might be safer walking around there KB.

 

Maybe you should look into a used presidential vehicle. Wouldn't have to worry about stray gunshots and body damage would be greater on the ones that hit you

 

But in all reality that sucks that you got hit.

Check it out guys.  This is the front of my tracker after I attemtped to pull a car out of a ditch.  Their rear stabilizer bar came shooting across the road when I pulled and it plowed into me.

this is actually from the week before when my dad backed into me in my yard.  Note the zip tie to hold the inner liner in place :woot:
