all of that is just sheet metal and plastic, easly fixed.

this is the part that scares me.

it's the pitman arm....

i don't see any real noticable frame damage, other than this and the left wheel has a good bit of camber to it.

lucky me, oh and she's fine, not even bruised(other than ego).

Glad to hear she's OK...I've been in her shoes....only I decided to dance with a tree :doh: good news mine was focused at the hood line. Brian if you need any bits off my 84 give me a buzz it's the least I can do. Here is a pic of it....right side fender and bits didn't get hit so they should be fine.

It's worth wondering if the pitman arm hadn't gone if she might not have busted a wrist or hand. Worked out well, I'd say.

At least she was headed to the gym and not the all-you-can-eat, 24hr BUFFET.
Sorry, but mechanical stuff fixes, glad she's OK.

If ya don't know, I ain't tellin'
Just be glad she's okay. How'd the pole do? Doesn't look like she hit it hard enough to take it down--in some places they make you pay for a new one if they determine you're negligent, and the bill is something like $6,000 :eek:

Okay, now let's look at your signature line:

71 FJ40 **Under Construction** SOA
94 4Runner **Under Construction** SAS
01 X-Star
98 M Roadster **wrecked** - damn it
95 Saturn -- **wrecked** got 12-12-03 $200

Now, I know the last one was wrecked before you got it, but, damn, man, oughtn't you slow down or something? ??? Or are you just collecting stuff for the lawn? :D :D :D

I ran over a wall by accident a few years ago.

No damage to the truck...wall got leveled.

(~4' cinder block wall on the side of a friends house)
