Default Deer Hit

I put pictures of the damage to the car on the link below, the last 4 pics on the page. It is also posted in the "For Sale" forum. Justin, it would be a nice drive back to your place .

I will keep everyone up to date on what happens, I just don't have time to fix it working 75 hrs a week.

I wish I could take it, but currently I am in no situation to get another car. Things have made a complete 180, and I won't be able to purchase the car. I apologize. But the car is still in extremely good shape. Looks like it'* still driveable, correct? Just keep driving it, one day you'll get some free time to run to the junkyard and get the body parts you need. Doesn't look like you've damaged anything serious.

No biggy Justin, just checking. I could repair it, I drive it daily now. I have a good lead on a 2000 Chevy 2500, so I plan to sell the car SOON. I have one guy waiting on a loan, first cash gets the car. I am negotiable

Hey, how much do you want for the thing? I *may* be interested (since mine is the same color... etc.).

I would like to get $450 for the car, here is how I see it...

$300 in BFG Traction TA tires, still very good tread, best tires I have ever bought
$100 New Radiator
$50 New Muffler

..... That doesn't include the low mileage well maintained drivetrain, nice interior, remote start and keyless entry... ect ect...

Plus, you can drive the car home

Let me know what you think, the tires are almost worth what I am looking to get.
The car also still has a clear title, due to the age, the insurance company did not issue a salvage or rebuilt title.

You should have known that a GP can't replace a bonneville

Just kidding, I like GP'* too, especially if they have a 3800

Has it got any rust at all? Mine is getting some on the passenger side A-pillar/door hinge area. It'* in pretty sad shape up there.

Looks like just a fender, hood, headlight assy to fix her up? Any other known issues with this car? Tranny in good health?

At that price, I'm seriously considering it.

Um... Will you take $400 cash? And what would it take to get you to hold it until I can get myself down there?

Yeah, I'm serious. Let me know.

I'll PM you too...

The car has been sold, thanks to everyone for your interest!

Now its time to find a truck, everyone will be glad to know that the bonnie is being fixed up back to the condition it was to be driven for a long time to come!
