So today I was sitting in a room signing on a refi for my house and a woman comes in and says "Do you have a Pontiac Gran Am?" My first thought was to say no, but I said "I have a black Pontiac". Well some young thing went careening into my car in a 71 oldmobile (nova look-a-like) after being hit from behind by a late model ford pickup, as she was turning into the parking lot where I was parked. Well to a make a long story short she hit my rear quarter panel and nailed my rear wheel. I'm pretty sure it bent that side of the suspension as the wheel was cambered significantly. The Goat slipped about 6-8 ft, and the rear quarter panel had a dent, and the bumper/cover that wraps around was trashed. My brand new steel works cat back tips have a very nice bend around the lip. Needless to say I need a drink. Any advice on what I should insist on having replaced on the suspension side, exhaust etc?? Thinking it is time to order the dealer 18 inch wheel option...

This is getting disgusting with how many GTO's have been hit by other vehicles. Hope the repairs go well.

No kidding, this is getting to be rediculous! That target is perfect.

As to what to replace? Everything! Don't let them do a half a$$ed job repairing it, since it's an IRS, I wouldn't accept anything but the whole suspension including the rear end and halfshafts. I would have the body put on a laser aligner and of course all mounting points examined and properly fixed if need be.

Sorry about the bad luck.

Shouldn't this topic be moved to the lounge as opposed to Engine Tech?

Maybe its time to see about ordering that '05 rear fascia? How about a new set of 18's. Nothing can replace a damaged car, but try to get something out of the deal.

I actually have to ask Diane too! :D

That would be a nice score as she's local. :D

Not that I'm a vulture or anything.

Hell, I think he was at the scene trying to bribe the tow truck driver.

Alas, another instigation by a Ford. What's the deal.

Perhaps I have a secret alliance getting into accidents with these cars. Unfortunately my minions can't get it right and keep damaging my DAMN Trunk lid in the process! I need to contract a new company. :D

Hmmm... Very interesting, CMNT. So... Tell me... What do you know about the Kennedy assassination? Or the Apollo program? Or the missile that hit the Pentagon? Are you now, or have you ever been, secretly employed by the CIA or the Ford Motor Company?
