With that engine in it you could go so fast, break the time barrier and travel back to before it happened. Anyway, sucks that it happened, but with all the people here I am sure you could get parts and make some money on the insurance. Good luck with it.

Crap, that sucks. I'd definitely take CC up on the offer on the HL glass. It'* a pretty easy swap out.

Sorry for the late words or condolences, Cousin' Mike, but I am just now seeing this (not used to looking for postrs from you in "Your Ride" )

Excellent that you carry full insurance on the car (like any white Bonne owner should).

Once the repair is complete, it will be time for you to have a "photo" shoot with the steed

Welcome to cursedom.

Jeez...how the hell did I miss this one? Sanford area isn't too big...just start looking for SUVs with a white streak on its butt.

On a more serious note...I would take the insurance money and buy the parts yourself, then have the car painted by the shop of your choosing. A new hood is not hard to come by...they are the same from 92-99. Looks like the headlight is taken cared of by another member on here (I just skimmed the posts, not sure if it really is taken cared of) and someone already mentioned the SSE grill. And I can recommend a shop that painted my LeBaron and I was quite pleased with it afterwards.

Mike.. I, at once, admire your deference to the higher perspective, and secondly want to send along my regrets on your setback with the car. My wife would be first to point out, given the similar situation, I would stress my vintage vascular system, wearout my repertoire of verbal F-bombs, and declare a mission of energy wasting vendetta.

All seriousness aside, In a quick OT I would like to remind us of the landmark studies by The Institute for Automobile Whiteness, in Wash DC, and their seminal paper "White Bonnevilles: Curse or Unconscious Conspiracy." Their findings were incontravertible that owners of white Bonnevilles, besides being consistently goodlooking and of superior intellect, (apparent in their taste in cars), may be subject to a deeply repressed jealousy on the part of other carowners. In their summary, they asserted this dysfunction may manifest itself in insidious ways, such as was done to your fine auto. Or in more blatant and dangerous breakdowns of selfcontrol by other drivers, similar to which the esteemed corvettecrazy and his car recently fell victim.

Whenever I relate such little known factoids as this, my wife always punctuates them with a "Sure, right, Cliff." I'm not sure who this "Cliff" character is to whom she alludes.

PS... My fav local yard is starting to put out '96-'99s, instead of squatting on them for their "store" sales. If you find yourself in need of any unavailable odds and ends to speed along or enhance your restore, let me know so I may make return for your past assistance.

You betchum!!!

Brad, do me a favor and shoot me the info on that body shop, if you would. The one good shop I had used around here before, and was a known entity, is gone now.

Charliemax (or Cliff, if you will... ), thanks for the words of support. You never know when I might have to take you up on that offer. And I LMAO at your tidbit of factual information that our brethren here with less white cars were probably not aware of before now.

Now, off to PM CC about a DS headlamp assy... <up, up, and away....>
