##BEFORE AND AFTER PICS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST##
Had my friends 2000 Cobra R for a couple days,
and upon returning to the house (2 hrs away)
I was driving along side a full size pick up,
well the guy in the pick up hit a deer and threw it
right in front of me :mad: :rant: :mad:
I couldn't do ANYTHING to stop the inevitable :thud:
The R got in an accident (crying smiley here)
I pull off to the side of the road as fast as I can shut her down,
seeing all the antifreeze just run out :eek: and see the whole front facia off and tucked under :eek:

Naturally the truck keeps going...
I make the phone call he asks "Where are you?"
well... I am in the middle of nowhere , no sign, no lights, no business' and it is almost midnight :eek:
The car is totally fixable, and we are doing all the work ourselves,
we got all the parts ordered the day after the accident, and we tore off all the bad / damaged parts, when the parts start arriving,
I am going to paint them, and get them on the Baby again ;)

Glad that you walked away. Those deers can do some serious damage.Sorry to hear about the car. I was up at US41 this past weekend. I was the one with the only SVTF up there. Didn't race just watched. I had a good time but was hoping to see some more SVTF up there. Talk to you later.

Wow...I'm glad no one got hurt...except the car...DAYUM! :frn: Big animals like deer, moose, and the like can really cause some serious damage. Some people have written off their cars as it's like running into a brick wall.

She is back on the road and looking great! Pics to follow soon :bna
