I spent sunday doing an opti swap in an attempt to get my car running right.
Didn't fix my problem, but i did manage to drasticly lower the value of my car.
Seems the time i picked to take a test drive on 295 was EXACTLY the same time a deer decided to cross the ROAD.
affraid





There's deer sh#t all along the lower rocker. Rolling Eyes Oh Well Sh#t happens.
The fender and door should be easy to replace,
but the quarter panels gonna be a b#tch to get right .

Front fender, door AND rear 1/4
What'd you do, throw it in reverse & finish the bastard off? Like a Star @ heaven
Seriously though, timing can suck sometimes when you figure the odds.
We've all heard the horror stories of deer through the windshield.
Glad you kept control & your alright.

wow, that sucks... but could have been worse, glad you're ok.

Like Steve said, when you do the math on the likelyhood of a dear crossing the exact spot that the 20 feet of your car is going by at a given rate of speed, it is staggering.

Buy a lottery ticket!
