snowplows, Hellas, front bumpers, and hoods.

Do not mix.

Back country road, Dad's driving my car home from work...idiot in
snowplow(the landscaping guys) comes flying out of a driveway about 20-30
feet in front of the car.

By throwing the truck into reverse very quickly, the guy avoided getting
himself killed, but the front bumper, 1 Hella XL, and the hood didn't make
it; it collided with the nice, solid thick plow.  Possible damage to the
intercooler, headlight mounts, etc.
   Excellent example of people who are in 4wd vehicles, doing stupid
crap(like tear-assing out of driveways into streets) 'cause they think
they're secure with their 4wd...

I need recommendations on shops in Massachusetts within reasonable driving
distance(max 1 hour, I guess) of the Framingham/Waltham/Sudbury/Lincoln
area from listers.  Right now, my father is intent on having the same guy
who worked on his 944 do the work(which was done nicely, but if there is
severe damage, like a bent frame, or mechanical damage, I want an
Audi-savvy person to take a look at it.)

After the last fiasco with my father driving my car(involving my front
driver's side panel and a concrete support column) I think we're gonna have
to place restrictions on his usage :|

On the other hand, my car will have a nice shiny new coat of paint(on the
front at least) for AudiFest '98(which I fully plan on attending.)  When is
it?  Love to hook up with some Audiheads in the area who are also going to
