Looks like I'll be hunting for another bumper cover. I'll see what I can do on that one. Radiator support, that'* a job for a hammer. I'd check the oil pan to see if it is dented. It might reduce the amount of oil the engine gets.

Thank you and yes, he said there wasn't any damage to the pan...only a slight crimp in the rad, but has not affected the temp.

PartsNazi has it all, doesn't he? I told DitchHopper to call Boosty...he replied <sigh> he was too busy to fix his car (aacckkkkk!!!) so I will not nag him. I'll the BC Boys ride him at NEBF Peer Pressure is far more effective than Mother Naggage at this point.

Ain't too bright at times huh? I suffer from the "Dumbass Disorder" too. I would have you take your son to the doctor to see if he can diagnose him with the "Dumbass Disorder" Unfortunately, it'* incurable.

Seriously, you're amazingly calm for a mother. If that happened to me, my mom would give me a swift kick in the *** plus seizing my car and license.

Lol...Dumbass Disorder is not only incurable....it'* heredity...he got it from his father.
As far as being calm, well...I did have to re-color my hair He'll be 19 this year, and he needs his car for work and college, so pulling it would only be bad for me in that he'd be living at home for a lot longer without improving himself

Besides, people have to make their own mistakes...as a parent, I've already taught him all he can learn ...its up to him to apply it, whatever the results may be, good or bad. I've accepted the fact that with testosterone usually comes the love of speed, I can't do anything about that. Besides, his first wreck was far worse...this used to be an Escort:

Nick is a very fortunate young man, First for having a loving & caring mother, second for still being in one piece. Nick, life is too short. You survived one major accident, and this one which is fairly minor, but damages none the less. I know you're young, but please try to listen to experience here. Drive your car with responsibility, you will increase the chances of survival and your Bonne will look nicer w/o crumples.

You're right. One bumper for everyday driving and another for special occasions. Just like shoes.
