    We got into an accident. I won't go into details because we are in the middle of battling insurance companies. I will just say it was the other driver who got cited.
    The other guy's car has no driver's side mirror now and tire marks from the headlight to the door handle.

    Husband and I are fine. But I have to say Chase is a little pissed. The truck was virtually flawless until yesterday.
    We go in on Thursday to get the estimate for repairs.

    Thanks, we are still in shock I think.
    But, we didn't let it ruin out getaway. We had so much fun at the museum today. I will have to organize a image shack page for all 200 or so pictures. :P

    I'm glad you are unhurt. I understand your husband's unhappiness. Down here, you just don't mess with a man's truck. You need to make it a big bandaid to put on the "owie". It always made my kids feel better, got any spiderman or snoopy fabric?

    So glad you are both OK. Cars can be replaced but you guys can't be.

    What year and make is his truck? It looks custom. It's cute. Looks like a toy.

    Ooohhh - went back and looked and see it's specs - '53 Ford. Bet that's his "BABY".

    It's a 1953 Ford F-100. It sits on a 1979 Ford Bronco 4x4 chassis.

    No, most of it was done by a man in Pa. I did the interior (put the padding and carpet down). We still have a few things to do on it, like a wiper motor, a heater and a little cosmetic work.

    Well yesterday we turned in the accident report to the DMV. Tomorrow we take the Dodge into for the repair estimate. Hopefully repairs can be done soon.

    Today is the day, my truck goes in for an estimate of repairs. I will try and remain calm, I am just now starting to feel a little more relaxed. But that may change when I get back in the truck to drive into town.

    Well, the estimate is in.........$3000.00 worth of repairs.

    They said a lot of dismantling has to be done in order for the work to get done. The canopy needs to be taken off, as well as the BedRug (if you don't have one of these I suggest you look into one) they are wonderful. The passenger rear door has to be taken off to repair and the nerf bars are being replaced.

    For sure, and I forgot to add they have my truck for two weeks. Depending on how long the parts take to get there.

    Drat, if you were closer we have a car you could borrow. We have a 1999 Ford Crown Vic that is still showroom new, 70,000 miles, powder blue, police engine. Everytime someone runs into car trouble it gets borrowed. But that's OK. Glad we can help. Will they give you a loaner?

    Thank you for the kind offer. But we have 2 other trucks. So we are not without wheels...LOL It just the Dodge is so comfy.

    I had a 1977 Dodge Diplomat station wagon with a police engine it. What a hoot to drive !!! I could fishtail that car out of the parking lot. :shock:
