so at a stoplight today i was reversed into. the lady was 65 years old, stopped at a light in frot of me and had placed her car in park...ya.

Light goes green, then she puts it into reverse!

Here she comes, *wait shes not reversing is she? cause im already letting my clutch out?

yep. WHAM!

So i need parts. Hood, plastic headlight bracket panel, and 2headlights

QUESTION: Will a 2002 zx2 plastic headlight bracket work? Cause i have one.

The worst part is the sentimental value of the car. my father gave this car to me at 15.5 yrs old. he just passed away in Feburary. <very long story short> I sold the car when i was 19, got it back at 24, im 25.5 years old now (i actually got it back, look up my old thread).

That sucks bro, sorry; wish I could help. I think after a certain age, one strike and done. Enough with letting those who on the verge of death kill those who will shape the future. Sorry, lost a family member to an old driver...

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, what a feeling............................ when you see her coming at you, and you're POWERLESS to do anything about it.

I'm a sentimental guy too. Still have my original 1973 Ford Pickup 4wd and my grampas 1967 Ford Galaxy family Sedan; 390 2bbl, full of Ohio Rust.

But, see what you can do, you'll be GLAD you put forth the effort.

ARgue politely with the insurance company, hold out as long as you can. If I'm angry at ANYBODY, it's Insurance company's; totalled out my 1993 Topaz that I paid 2500 dollars for, a guy raced out of a gas station and totalled out my whole front quarter; gave me 1200 bucks and I had to FIGHT for it.

They are MEAN.

i'M ROOTING for you.

Hmm I've had this happen no fewer than 3 times with my '93 Escort. Twice was in parking lots, one time was a simple backing out of a parking space too far, ended up cracking the bumper despite the low speed(due to cold weather making the bumper plastic less resilant). The 2nd time was in another parking lot, this time the person was exiting the parking lot, stopped in the street, and kept going about 50 feet right into the front of my car, that took out the headlights, bumper, and grille(also replaced the hood as well as it was previously damaged. Then just yesterday somebody was turning left, decided they couldn't so they backed up, I saw what they were doing and despite laying on the horn backed up right into me but he was going slow enough that just caused a bit of a thud, and not even paint transfer between the vehicles. The one common thing among every time is the person was looking forward instead of backwards :O. I say fix it up you can probably get most parts from a local pick-n-pull probably already in white as its a common enough color. - Peter
