Default Wife hit a deer

Got off the phone not too long ago with the wife, she hit a deer.
No pics and all I really know is the grill is busted and the hood won't open anymore.

Anyone know of yards in the Richmond VA or Virginia beach area. I'm pretty sure the one yard I got near me doesn't have another Regency grill (car in sig)

Thanks,
Timmers

Oh of course. She doesn't drive anywhere near fast enough to get hurt in a Regency. The wife is pretty depressed thou and the poor deer is probably more shaken then hurt too. LOL

And I JUST replaced that grill and all the sheet metal behind it this past summer. That grill was mint too. :(

Yep the Venom is an all weather vehicle.....once I run it for an hour and get the air valves unfrozen The paints protected by 3 Clear coats of Hardened uretane, the hydraulics lift it above most snow falls, it has a half bra for stone chips, and goes up and down this driveway routinely with stock RSA'* on it. It feasr nothing. "cept a 100lb Buck in it'* way!

Good news! I had her back the car up now that its been sitting in the same spot for a while... and there are no leaks on the driveway.

Tracey - thanks, I'll pass that on to her.

The grill is not broken, its complete gone LOL
The left headlight and frame will need to be replaced as well as the hood latch hardware and grill mounting hardware in the center. The hood is a little bowed and the bumper seems to be sagging a bit as well. I think the hood can be straightened easy enough and I'm not sure anyone else would notice the bumper

I'll probably run out to the yard tomorrow to see what they got but I'm not expecting anything. Pics will be forthcoming when I can get the car in daylight
