I wouldn't hold your breath on that so-called 4-5 days! My car (92 SE) had HALF your damage & took 8 days in the shop to get fixed!

BTW Amy! What was the price tag on the damage? Mine was $3500 CDN for: front fascia, 2 fenders, 2 driving lights, 1 passenger front marker light & blend in doors & hood!

You know what? I don't have a clue what the damage is. I didn't have an estimate guy look at the car. My insurance company just had it towed to the collision repair in the Pontiac dealership, and they started fixing it right away. It doesn't really matter if it takes a little longer than planned. My insurance is paying for a rental and they are paying for all damages. I guess I signed up for good insurance. Woo-hoo! As soon as they are done I can probably tell you how much it cost to fix. I'm sure they'll let me know. Maybe I should have asked.

Must've been that skirt trick again. They decided it didn't matter how much it was going to cost, after seeing a little skin.

Oh crap.......off to the cold shower again. Got myself all worked up again!

Next week is good. As long as I get it back. I was worried because they couldn't get it to start. The main guy said they were going to rip off the damaged parts before they do anything with the engine, so they will probably be trying to fix the engine today. I know I will be getting a new radiator because it was really messed up. Don't know why it won't start though.

My guess would be if the radiator was messed up something had to be clogged in the lines.

PF, they hit a DEER. The front of the car was pushed into the radiator.

Are you going to have to send me another pair of pants Will? You know I don't always have to show leg. Sometimes I show off my tattoo. Sometimes my prize winning smile is enough. tee-hee. I love my insurance company....they're great! They guy said that the radiator had dropped some. It wasn't exactly where it was supposed to be.
