Yep Satty, know exactly where you were. Sorry to hear about you car man. Doesn't look too bad though and with a few parts from the local bone yard you should have her back to new in no time.

I will suggest City Auto Salvage down in IL as a good place for inexpensive parts. Take 41 down to Washington and head East. It is just a block or two east of Hwy 41.

It is amazing how fast an accident happens. It is never good to assume what the other driver is going to do. Unfortuneately there are too many idotic drivers in our area so you need to be extra careful. Glad this lesson only cost a fender and some other parts.

Judging from the pictures, dude, those aren't bad at all. IMO, they don't come close to constituting new a fender, and definately not a new hood.

Not my choice. Plus I already have a new car. I'm taking the GTZ down to American tommorrow to have the CD player pulled and I'm installing it in my new car.

I don't know yet. I'll have to see what's possible on these engines. Berettas came with them after 94 so I'm sure some of the modifications can be the same.

The minivan decides to pull around the damn Civic, race out into the intersection just as I was turning left and by the time I hit the brakes and tried to steer out of the way, it was too late. She ended up getting away with a dented rear sliding door as well as scratches here and there and one Seriously scratched up wheel. I got the damage done plus my side was dented completely in (I was able to pop it out after the cop saw it etc.) Well, that's the story. $156.20 fine for failure to yeild turning left. Damn minivans....

Those damn women in those minivans and their stupid little kids strapped in the back seats should be banned from public highways!!!!! They are nothing but an accident waiting to happen. Damn them
