Dropped the drivers rear in the ditch, the car spun 180 degrees and I went down the hill after the passenger side bumper smacked the bank on the road. After regaining my sanity, I now view it as "could have been alot worse". Blew the passenger side of the Bumper cover to pieces and broke the headlight cover, but the body'* ok and the door unaffected. Time to put the 1000 pounds of rock in the bed of the dually and chain up. The rain/snow bout we had left a layer of ice like I never seen here.
Sorry to hear this John! It certainly sounds like it could have been much worse, but still; it sucks. I've been driving the truck the past few days because of the ice around here. There saying snow this weekend, so it'* time to put some extra weight in the bed as well.

Well, well, well. Someone in shipping saw a truck backing in to the lot by my car with a trailer that had a bobcat on it. This was the guy that clears snow. That name is now with the police. That made my day.

Wow, this thread exploded! Crazy stuff happens to our cars. Venom, I'm so sorry about the Bonneville! To think, just a few months ago I spent 10 minutes waxing that car!

Dan, if you remember how someone backed into my car and simply scuffed up the bumper cover, no cracks: The estimate was over $500, and another estimate I got was $400. In fact, I told someone it cost me $300 to get the bumper repainted, thinking that was a lot, and the guy said, "Well, you were just nicked!" Your $250 deductible is probably never going to cover such a crack. I guess car work is way too expensive.
