Got into an accident...
on Mason right before Plummer. I was driving down the street and just as I'm passing the intersection this guy in a Toyota Corolla comes from my left and hits me. BTW I have a 97 Nissan 240sx. So I get down to talk to him and instantly he says 'sorry I didn't see you.' At first I was like 'No shit you didn't see me that was just a 2400 lb dog that ran in front of your car.' An instant later I swear all I could see was $$ so I get all his info and shit and he and I went our seperate ways.
One of my buddys owns a spped shop not too far from there so I take my car there and he looks at it and says that as soon as I get the money to take it to his body shop for a new (_insert_part_here_) so I'm stoked that I can now fix up my car and everything.

The extenet of the damage is everything from my passenger side door to my rear bummmper. Luckily neither of us were hurt bad. I got a cracked rear light and a stress fracture on the light on the drivers side. My lower rear pivot arm is bent to hell an I think that my rim is bent up also. I think this also caused a puncture in my exhaust and my differential might be jacked up also.

As for what I might get from my friends shop this includes:

Carbon Fiber Hood
Complete Body Kit
New Wheels (possibly)
New LSD
New Rear Lights
New Rear end basically
New Springs and Shocks (maybe coilovers)

Or in worse case scenario I have to get a new car in which case your guys comments are greatly appreciated. I would like to stick to Nissan/Infiniti if possible but might move to Toyota if properly motivated.

That's sucks, but it's nice to know everyone's fine. If you have to get a new car, I would get a celi, you'll have it under warranty, and they last quite a while grin

Yeah I know but is it really insurance fraud if you basically have to get a new car.

I guess insurance can be useful in some situations.

Sorry to hear that, just remember dont try to mess around with the insurance in the wrong way. It's there to help you...not to make you happy by getting a lot of things...if that makes sense.
