Re: 85 UrQ Whacked by SUV
Last evening on the way home from work, my 85 UrQ got rear-ended by a new SUV
(an Isuzu Rodeo, so not a _really large_ SUV). A bit more than a tap, but not
a really hard hit.
Pulled over, got out and examined the damage. A few minor scratches on the
bumper cover (nothing that wouldn't buff out), taillight lens- slight crack,
reflector below lens: slight crack and pressed in about 1/8". Didn't even
break the paint on the metal.
Then I look at the Rodeo... looked like two different accidents. Front bumper
cover ripped, grill busted, valence bashed in, fender crumpled badly. My guess:
$2500-3000 in repairs.
My mechanic says the same thing happened to him. When I went out to look
at the damage, I could see that something had brushed against the back
bumper, and it was marred a bit. They had to flatbed out the Explorer
(I think, mighta been Bronco?)...
