Ok heres what happend.

Im driving down a local road, and the car in front of me ( a cougar xr7 early 90s) is going in front of me, like a normal day on the road.

Anyway there is the bus dropping the high school kids out, which is fine... the bus leaves, and we procede.

Then one of the stupid F*in high school kids walk into the street, so the cougar stops, and I stop but unfornately im kissing the cougars ass end.

However I did manage to swerve the car a bit to where it just hit the passenger side of the mach.
Didnt really do any damage to his car... acouple scuff and a hairline crack in his plastic... thats it!!!!
and all this happend roughly at 20-30mph

My damage includes

Passenger fender
Hood
my grill (will be the hardest thing to replace) and thats what really upset me the most...

my bumper, and hood braces that support the latch... so now the hood wont close.

Im glad I have found most of these parts so far
Found a grill but that will have to wait, im about 3million % poor! lol

He didnt call the cops which is fine by me

the sad thing is i couldnt afford full coverage on the mach so I have to eat this one /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

By law i know its my fault but it isnt...
a funny thing is that when I got out of the car, I was fumming mad! and i started my way to the stupid kids, and they ran, prolly a good thing.

anyway here is the damage

After my accident two weeks ago, Iknow how you feel. I just was fortunate enough not to be blamed and I therefore don't have to "eat" it. I just have to fight to get the right repair done....

But, as I have found myself....after a couple a days you start feeling less bad about it and realise that all is fixable....unfortunately for you at your own cost.... If I had to pay for the 7000 Euro damage to my car myself I could not afford repair....

Hang in there....She'll be looking as good as ever sooner then you think.... And you know how I feel about your car....

Are you gonna concentrate on the engine and the damage only, or do you view this as a good time to do the paint thing as well?

It's too bad I have never seen your car color in real life, not even in the for sale ads here in Holland... But both car and color deserve to be put right at one time or another....

I wish you good luck, and if you ever need cheering up, just let me know...

I cant afford anything now ... Im hoping i can get a loan.

Im going to get a new fender... see if my hood can be fixed, I have to get a new bumper and try and find that grill

the other engine will have to wait, and so will everything else
