Funny thing, the other day, I was behind a car with a bumper sticker that read "Hang Up the Damn Phone and Drive!" I giggled all while I was behind that guy.

White silver, and sometimes gray are actually shown in studies to be colors on vehicles that are not readily noticeable. Not just pontiacs, but any cars in those colors are low visibility, and higher risk.

Just bought my lotto ticket...what do ya think my chances are??? It'* only a mere $57,000,000 anyway so wouldn't be that much of a winning anyway!!

Oats...I think your safe on the right coast...no plans for a road trip for quite some time. Was think about the WCBC meet but not with the luck we have been having lately although I may need some of all the absolute genius here in the club to help fix the ole SSei up and get her smokin'!!

Hey, the luck has to change soon!!

Yeah, ask any truck driver. Grey rainy day, grey road, grey car, no lights. F-ing brilliiant.

Not you Mac, just a generalized complaint. Looks like this one is a relatively cheap repair, though, unless my trained eyes deceive me? Thinking here, no apparent core-support damage, headlights are straight, fender/hood line is straight, hood is unrumpled. So, new bumper cover, possibly new bumper mounts, and paint, you're good to go. Probably no more than $900?

Nice try Goneville...more like $3,200!! They actually need to put it on the rack to straighten out the front end a smidge, right front quarter panel was tweaked, hood is damaged and needs work but being that it is aluminum they said it may or may not have to be replaced depending on what the heat does to it when fixing...hey it'* only money right! Wish I knew how to do some of this stuff. I have always had a desire to work on cars and when we got this one the desire really kicked in just wish I had someone to mentor me!! That is why I like this forum so much because you guys really seem to know your stuff and I love to take it all in!
