    Angry Got into an accident in the Trans Am today

    Well, here's the story...me and a coworker went out to get dinner at around 1530. While on a 3 lane highway type road, this d-bag merges into my lane and pushes me into the curb (I was in the far right lane and he was in the center). I slam the curb hard...hard enough to think I broke my rim. He doesn't want to involve the insurance companies, so yeah . Here's the damage:

    My driver side rear fender:


    Passenger Wheel that found the curb:


    Front Bumper:


    Together:


    Rock Chips from the curb impact:


    Rocker Panel damage:


    Plant Scratch:


    I think I might take his opportunity to get the WW Front lip and get the entire car repainted (swirl marks and random small scratches are killing me >.<). I'm also entitled to a new wheel, which I'll take as a sign to get 11" wide wheels and 315/35/17 tires on the back (I currently have 9.5" wheels and 275/40/17 tires).

    Dude! Jeremy! That sucks ass! You were always saying how you wanted a repaint. Guess its not all bad cause this is your chance. Good thing it wasnt your fault, make the guy pay for your repaint.

    He must not be too rich if he's worried about higher insurance rates. I have a feeling he's gonna try and pull some douchebag shit once you show him the bill.

    that front lip will look good on your black car but you will scrape it going in and outta parking lots..
