    Never been a van of the Venture vans, now my opinion has been lowered still. Surprised by the Astro van though. Watch the crash test for the Juke and they take the batteries out, saw the terminal flying around in the slow-mo. Only makes sense to remove all the fluids.

    Wow, lots of replies and I never got an email notification.

    LOWETGT: that second video is why there are no more Cossies left for us to import into the US. Rallycross looks damn fun though. The winter roads in PA are as close as I can get. PennDOT has a habit of making them slicker than they would be if just left untreated.

    No ground-clearance or off-road suspension and post-wreck he goes, 'oh my car'... oh the irony. Not to mention he's rolling break-neck speeds over blind hills. Then later voices direct concern about his passengers...

    Not to mention he does it on a gravel road.

    Alright. Here's the scenario. A few weeks ago driving down a straight, flat, 25mph street, bright clear sunny, leisurely Sunday afternoon, a pizza delivery guy, stops to make a left turn in the on-coming lane. He sits there for at least SEVERAL seconds watching me approach. Then, inexplicably, at THE last second, decides he wants to try to make the turn in front of me.

    I T-Bone his vehicle...

    I lock-up my brakes but it's almost futile... hit him HARD. The impact shattered his turn-sig even though it wasn't anywhere near the point of impact. Seemed fine at the scene but later went to urgent care where he says they found a cracked-rib (arm-rest) and minor concussion.
    You've now seen his vehicle.

    Now, the damage to my vehicle...

    There is some core-body damage on the passenger-side but pretty much, lucky.

    Well, if the requirements to get a pizza delivery gig where you are, are anything like around here; he should have some decent insurance to reimburse you.
    Best I know, pizza joints around here require $100,000-$300,000 commercial liability coverage in order to get a job.
    Must not be too sharp though, using a boat like that for deliveries.

    Ah, NASCAR 200 MPH tape. What you bet he's a redneck NASCAR fan?

    The parts they quoted where around $1200. Once I heard that number, I knew there was no reasoning with them...

    Must be more damage than that. I don't see a hood and paint being $1200.

    That was just the replacement parts (Hood, header panel, and some decals). The paint and labor cost was another $2000. They quoted a new hood for $758(idfk :roflmao:) the decals where $100ea and the panel was ~$200. It was clear to me at that point (and after the 3 weeks of arguing my case), that they wanted the car totaled to cause as much of a headache to me as possible. After receiving my settlement, I turned around, renewed the title, installed a used hood, header panel, and spray bombed the whole car for under $400.

    For a car less than 3 years old I could see MAYBE see that being the cost but otherwise that is ridiculous, especially the labor. You should have gotten a quote from a local body shop for a lot less, slaped it down on the table, and then asked them how much crack their estimator smokes in a day.:p

    Hit some ice in February. Managed to straighten out the frame and put another bumper on though.

    These were from June. I came to a screeching stop on the highway in rush hour traffic ( after the guy in front of me came to a rapid stop) and got his trailer hitch receiver/ball through my right turn signal. The total parts damages were...

    Bumper cover
    Bumper bar
    Headlight carrier
    Right turn signal

    I replace the bumper with a sorta-fit (Certa-fit) bumper cover with fog lights. I replaced all the front lights when I did the repairs. Thankfully there was minor damage to the radiator core support (about a 1/4" push back by the condenser).
    The body guy I know charged me $350 to paint the bumper and fix the core support. I assembled the car in my driveway.

    The truck I hit took off and did not stop, so I didn't get a ticket or insurance claim, so the $500 it cost (without ne headlights or fog lights) was cheap. 2014-06-16a 1998 Ford ZX2 accident.png 2014-06-16b 1998 Ford ZX2 accident.png
