yes...yes Kyle posted before I decided to on this subject. I'll get some pics up in the morning after I get the radiator off the car. Then all that will be left is pulling the front out a little bit and bolting on the body panels. But the using it to my advantage part may not be true. I was first planning on going entirely aftermarket and going ahead with the kit, fender, hood, rims I wanted but not I may just replace back to stock and sell the car. I'm still trying to figure it out. I really want a Trans Am and now would be the perfect time to go out and get one...If I don't I will be selling the car and at least buying a MTX cougar.

The details:
It was 5am Sunday morning I was on my way home, was trying to get home so I could at least sleep an hour or so before I had to be at work at 8am. I was doing 95ish down a back country road and lost control around a S curve. Sent the car spinning into a field, bounced back on the road caught a ditch that slung me across the road and put me into a fence. I took out the fence and then caught the corner of a house. All in all it sounds way worse then it actually was.

Damage:
Both bumpers, fenders, windshield, both airbags, at least 2 bent rims, radiator busted and I need to replace teh windshield.

And yes as I almost flew out the window of the car I some how put my hand through the windshield. Top left corner is busted outward from me hitting it. I think me hitting the window was teh only thing that kept me from flying out the driverside window since I asn't wearing a seatbelt and slid driverside first into the house.

I'm a little sore, keeps getting worse every day. My wrist is pretty trashed and my back gets worse as every day goes on. I have all ready pulled all the body piece off the front of the car. I'm gonna take off the back bumper and radiator tomorrow then there isn't much left to do but buy replacement parts and start fixing her up.

Yeah I had heard, but didn't say anything cause he hadn't posted it. Good luck with whatever you decide to do Brandon.

Dude.. that really sucks. i've gotten smashed in accidents myself, so i can empathize. If you decide to get rid of the car i hope that you'll stay active enough to at least scout out some stuff for me in Indy if need be.

oh yeah, I'll still be up for some scouting. I know I will get the car fixed, if it feels all right I may keep it and just forget about modding the cougar and go ahead and buy a Trans AM. I have wanted a TA for ever now, so I just have a reason to pick one up now. Right now I'm just driving my truck around and still trying to get all the parts together that I need so I can get the car fixed. Really wanted to have a crazy cougar for CF this year, but maybe I'll just show up in a TA...who knows:confused:
