Why does it seem that EVERYTIME someone else drives one of my cars something bad happens? I mean seriously! This is a scary pattern!

And yah Jesse, I know it. Sucks. Its all fixable, but Insurance isn't going to cover it...and I don't REALLY have the money right now AND I'm leaving on wednesday. I don't know whats going to come of this.

and people wonder why i have such a hard time letting other drive my cars.

I still dont like to let my mom or dad drive my car or even my own two brothers.

i think out of all the cars iv had, i think only like 8 or 10 times has someone else driven one fo my cars. (Boosty being like 4 of those times) lol

The irony is overwhelming.

Oh. So I know I can JB weld that rear bracket back in, but umm...the bracket is gone...so...maybe replace the whole fender? seems kinda stupid..but umm..how else do yah do it?

I will be taking this apart tomorrow and seeing how it all goes together. I could use a little guidance from someone who knows how the front ends of these cars are put together. Crash, I know you do, you basically rebuilt your hole front end.

I just need a headlight bracket and corner light and fab up something for the back of the corner light and umm, I'll be good to go.

this just added to my already hectic list of things to do before I leave here on wednesday.

Dude, that sucks. I was just looking at how clean your car was just a few minutes ago, and then saw this thread.
:(
Sorry to hear man.
I mean, yeah, it could have been worse, thank God it wasn't, but, yeah, that really sucks.

looks like you got off easy. The mounting tabs for the corner light appear to be all there, so just get a new corner light, put it in, and you'll never see the piece missing.

If she had hit the deer, the back end would have swung around and toasted your fender and door. That'* what happened to mine.

All in all, should be easy to replace.

Yup, Ive had 2 very close calls the last 2 days. One time I was doing 50 and just saw one on the side of the road standing. 50-0 in about 3 seconds My reflexes kicked in so fast I really didn't realize why I was stopping right away. And yesterday I almost hit a 8 point buck doing about 30.

Green Bonnevilles are deer magnets. I'm not kidding.

My sister hit one a few years back with the 92. You could see the imprint of the deer on the hood. It was actually pretty cool

fortunately for you, the deer doesn't look like it did too much damage and it looks like it shouldn't be hard to repair.

Got lucky, I hit a deer back in May. Lost the left fender and headlight. Door didn't open, and wheel hit on bumps. But the hood came out ok. Your hood on the other hand, didn't fair so well.
