Default I really didn't need this...

A guy in a white Ford truck ran a stop sign in front of me, I swerved, fishtailed, and went off the road and hit a sign with my right fender. The only thing on the side of the road for 300 feet either direction too. CA state park ranger/police came over to make sure I was alright, by the time he went chasing after the guy who ran the stopsign the guy was long gone. He said that I'm not at fault for anything that happened but since they couldn't catch the guy I'm SOL. Going to need a new front fender, wheel, maybe header panel, and paint, it was a pretty hard hit.

Pics tomorrow.

Thats exactly what I am doing, it hit the front of the door but not too bad, ima bend it back and keep the one I have. I am getting a used fender though, it just sucks because I just finished doing all of this on the other side because of some other idiot...

If that happened to me, I'd probably track that guy down and give him a royal beat down. Sucks that had to happen though man, seems like your car's a magnet for this kind of crap :/

Yeah thats what everyone is saying.

I almost want to sell the Mustang, get a really nice low miles MN12 and put all of my suspension and exhaust from this car on it, fix this car for CHEAP and sell it too...

The Mustang is worth more than I payed for it back in October of 2008. Its pretty crazy that I have had the Mustang longer, driven it more and had zero accidents, whereas the Thunderbird is a magnet for this stuff...

Ive put 17,000 miles on the Mustang in 3.5 years... no problems.
Ive put 7,000 miles on the Thunderbird in 2.25 years.... its a mayhem magnet...
