    I had a 98 year old lady hit me head on several years back, she was taking her 80 year old sister home. They had a green light, but not the protected arrow and turned right into me head on. Totaled my Corvette and hurt my wife's neck and shoulders. I was looking over the driver's information that the policeman gave me at the hospital and saw that her birthday was in 1889.

    lol, the damage is more substantial than what the photo shows. the door has a pretty good dent in it, the rear bumper will need to be completely replaced. The 1/4 isn’t too bad, appears to just be scarring from the other guy’s bumper. The wheel MIGHT be damaged too.

    There’s no way on earth these damages could be fixed for $2-300 unless someone is giving away their labor.

    I had some young punks Gangster types, They eased up on my rear a hit me on purpose. I was at a red light and they were just hootin and hollerin. I looked in the rear View and saw them back up and were about to try again. I was in an 89 PMD G/P. They had a Ford tempo or some model of that style. I put it in reverse and floored it. Wham. I put it in drive and the light had change to green. I hauled AZZ. I looked in the rear view and saw the driver get out and look at his front end all smashed. He raised his hands in a jester like why? I drove a couple miles to a Police sub station and parked thinking Holy S**t I can't believe I just did that. I waited a while B/C I thought they would have chased me, so I would have gotten the police involved. They never came by. So I drove about 5 miles taking all kind of turns and got home. There was only minor scratches on the little bumperettes. I never did anything like that before. I just don't know what came over me but I guess they Dicked with the wrong guy that day. I think I busted the rad so they were toast. LOL

    I just would be watching for the punks to recognize the car and cause trouble. And, I definitely would not let wife drive it after that. Never know what they may do.
