Default My buddy wrecked his Park Ave

he hasnt even had his license for a month.
left my house about 630 last night, a get a call a bit later asking if I can give him a ride to work, I thought something else happened, like his dad needed to borrow his car (his dad doesn't have a good driving record either, and his truck ain't too good)
He was coming around a long bend, =not to far from my house, when something happened and he started to slide, he countersteered too much, but that isn't what really caused him to crash, he slammed on the brakes, did a 180, hit a pole, going to see his car at the shop later, he'* OK, but the Park Ave isn't, $9K to fix her
if it wasn't for those darn plastic fenders, she would be fixable they said.

Quite a whack. Amazing the door looks OK. $9k??? Car'* not worth that. Looks like a couple body pieces. Internal suspension damage we cant see?

John..the piece we can see is the front structure of the car. It'* bent like a pretzel. It'* doubtful that a metal fender would have helped much.

Search for one with a bad trans or engine and swap it in.

anybody want to buy the engine and trans? He really could use the money, he only has $800 to spend on a car, and needs extra cash
