My Shelby Daytonas

Accident

In the winter of 2001 I was rear ended at a stop light by a guy in a ranger XLT 4x4 who forgot to take his insulin shot and passed out at the wheel. The estimates were for $5500, and I didn't have colision on my car, so guess where I was, up $h!t Creek without a paddle (Michigan no-fault). I spent 60 hours in 4 days repairing the car over my Christmas break. Cost me about $350-$400 for parts, and also all my time. It doesn't look to bad now! The cheap mixed spray paint looks ok but it does need to be repainted some day with a base clear coat.

Ouch did that hurt! Pushed the rear quarter panel in 2" and busted the right rear bumper support along with the entire tail light and associated panels.

Also snapped the passenger seat hinge and blew the headlight bulbs. Scraped up one of the subs but everything else was ok. The box took a lot of the hit and cracked it in a couple of places.

There she sits in my drive way at college in Marquette MI. It handels great in the snow with some 185 75 r14's on the front.

It also took a while just to bend everything out to get the hatch to shut descent, and I had to use some masking tape to cover the gaps in the hatch so snow wouldn't get in. It sounded cool when the turbo spooled up because you could hear the air being forced out the tailpipe making a loud wushing sound!
