Default Worst day ever...**UPDATE!!**

Deer: 1 Bonneville: 0 (although the deer doesn't know it cause he'* dead)
Thats right, nailed a deer going to work this morning....
Came around a bend and saw one going into the woods on the opposite side of the road, and all of a sudden #2 came running out from the brush on my side. Neither of us had a chance. Hood'* bent, passenger fender is in little plastic pieces, grill is half gone, and my passenger headlight is on the highway somewhere. Fortunately the radiator and bumper are still intact (no airbag deploy, thank god), so it was still "drivable". Hope to get an estimate tonight. Pictures coming when I can get em.
Words to live by: When you see one deer, the other one is out there somewhere.....

It was in a thousand pieces strewn all over the road. The casing is somewhere in the frontal area smashed to nothing. I did stop, but there was nothing for me to do except try to hold back the tears of sorrow for my car and and hold back my urge to kick the deer in the head (apologies for the show of rage towards the deer, but it was the way I felt at the time).

Still no estimate of whether she'll be fixed or totalled.

Ouck... Although it looks fixable. Let'* see what the junkyard in binghamton could do you for:

grill - 17.99 + 1.00 core
Headlight composite with bucket - $35.49 + 1.00 core
hood - 29.99 + 2.00 core
Fender - 29.99 + 2.00 core
turn signals - $5.00

Looking at the damage, that would bring the total to: $124.46 with core and $6.00 back from core if returned.

Hopefully they do not total it. That also does not include paint, but you might be able to find the right color there as they have a lot of SEs in there.
