Is the car still driveable (as in still drives the same) If so, just screw it for now and get it fixed when you can afford it. Sure it's not pretty but really it's not that important. I drove my Contour with a bent up front end for 4 months saving money to pay the $700 deductible. Sure it was embarassing sometimes, but it sure beat overexerting my wallet and missing payment on something truly important like my rent or the car payment itself.

Gotta love donner summit. It could have been worse, u could have been taking ol' highway 40 over the summit, which in that case you would have gone off a cliff. I dont know where exactly u were when it happened but if you were trying to go over that way, it would have been bad. Be happy your ok.

well i dealt with the insurance today and they already cut me a 3 grand check. They are replacing my fender, door, front bumper, fixing some dents and scratches on my passenger side and roof that i have had on there for months. They are pretty puch repairing the damage pulling all the dents in my entire car and repainting it. lol

I gotta go back and do a seperate claim on my windshield and they are goin to call me about my rims. 3 of them got curbed really good but since tsw dont make them no more i dunno what they will do.

I just gotta find out where to get the 500 bux.

Ouch... I know the feeling.

Stuff like that sometimes happens. Be happy that you were not injured.

Hope you figure out a way to get the cash you need.

That sucks man, was this the drive back from Vegas?
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">its all cosmetic damage to the wheels, depending on what state farm does i will prolly just paint them.

Just go to your local grocery store, get the manager, and blame it on a shopping cart.
