Default my bonneville got hit from behind!!

Oh yeah I forgot to tell all of you. As I was getting on the NJ turnpike from 295 north going home, I got hit from behind while in more traffic from this idiot in a rented cavalier. I was stopped in traffic and all of a sudden I feel a nudge from behind and a bang. Well needless to say, I am getting a new bumper and new paint!!! It works out pretty good condsidering I was going to have it painted anyway.

Ouch!

I wish someone would sandwich me. I'd like the front and rear both repainted!

I have you all beat. I had an accident in February, got the front repainted, along with some huge scratches fixed!

My brother just backed into my car last Sunday...$1900. I just took my scoops off the week before, and there were some scratches on the hood, but that will be repainted this time!

When I fix my rust, I'll get a lot of the back repainted! Unless someone hits me in my rust spot first, and I'll get it done for free

Heh, that happened to me when I got reared. I needed a new bumper too. But I had it worse, cause my frame bent with it.

Just make sure when any of you get hit be sure the other guy has insurance to cover your cars damage. I got rear-ended in my 1992 SE and it took a week of his insurance (Progressive -Progressive ******** is what I refer to them as) company debating what my car was worth because of all the modifications to decide that the other kid didn't have any insurance (no doubt because I had reciepts for over $3500 in accerssories from the Vogue wheels/Vogue Tyres to the K&N cone filter to the LED tail-lights, and the interior trim pieces all painted green to match the car.
They sure backed off quick (I should have sued them because I got bodily injury causing over 1 week of unpaid time off at work and my car was totalled (I had just paid the car loan off 3 days earlier).

Anyhow be carefull.

Stylez
