As we say in the South.....

Ya'll ain't gonna believe THIS stuff!!






First time I've driven it in almost two weeks due to the rain so I figured that I'd take him for a cruise today & pick my son up from school, needless to say, I didn't make it thanks to a lady trying to pass me on the right...........while I was stopped & making a right hand turn (yes Paul, I had my signal on)

You know....you'd THINK that a 17' BRIGHT ORANGE car would be easy to see....guess not!

Looks like a fender and a door, time to call Goodmark or Stephen's Performance. At least it was a glancing blow and not a direct impact.

Damn man, cursed car dude.

We were rear-ended sitting in dead stop traffic about two weeks ago in my wife's new Honda Fit. Lady got out of her earth Fricker and said well it's only a little ding. I said why were you talking on your cell phone which she had in her left hand. She said I wasn't talking on my cell phone. I said what's it doing in your hand, duh! What a total bitch, not even a scratch one her excursion and my whole back bumper is caved in and a trailer hitch imprint on our front bumper where she pushed us into the truck in front that was about six feet away.

Just a little ding, what a crock!

I feel for you Mike, that's a bad beat, that's why I am very nervous every time I drive the Ecto. I'm always more worried someone will crash into me while watching the car.

I hope you don't give up on him, if you do, I'll give you $500 and haul it away.  ;D

Paul.

Man, with everything that I've been through with this fu**ing car, I don't even want to go back to the shop to get it when it's finished much less go to take pics.
As far as I'm concerned at this point, the damn thing can sit in there and rust to the ground. >:( >:(
