Like what Joel says, its never good to have any kind of accident for both parties, but the pics of her Mustang and the scratch on your SMB is priceless.

Good luck and hope all works out for both parties.

Ray

Re: FLASH !!! Wilson just got HIT!!!!!!

No doubt that bumper is great but my bet is the tire also took a hard hit. I'd get a frame shop to check out that front axle and suspension.

Re: FLASH !!! Wilson just got HIT!!!!!!

Good luck with that! I had those words spoke to me about 2 months ago. Hope nothing happened to the van. That is the best way it could end.

Re: FLASH !!! Wilson just got HIT!!!!!!

I did the same with the rent a car. Thier full size is not my idea of full size. It made me nervous (shite happens, it did to the van) so I parked it in the front yard. If there happens to be a slightly damaged bumper for sale, let me know.
