    so I was driving on the way to school on the highway and there was this metal box looking thing in the road and I couldn’t switch lanes cuz there was a huge tractor trailer beside me, then the wall on the other side and I couldn’t lock it up cuz 1. I would of gotten rear ended and still gone over this thing or 2. I woulda hit the wall, got rear ended and still hit this thing….

    So I hit it, its small enough to go under my car but large enough to make it feel like the front tires came off the ground…. After that it starts sounding really weird and all cuz I hit it. I get to school and look under and from what I can see it shoved a sway bar up into my tranny *I can only see so much cuz its lowered* and my downpipes from my headers all the way back are scratched up…im going to take a futher look when i got home... what all you think i fucked up??? insurance wont cover this will it? can i do anything??

    Damn man i'm sorry this had to happen to ya i know it must suck, for future reference slam the brakes, having a good reason to slow down, if someone
    did hit you in the rear it would be their fault for not allowing enough room to stop if there were an emergency, that law is prime in all 50 states and their
    insurance if they even did hit you would have to pay for your car repairs.

    Again sorry to hear about this man, i hope everything works out for ya. :drunk:

    how bad is the oil pan damage? hopefully not too bad that you damaged the oil pump pickup tube.

    I was thinking the same thing DTP. You better check that . No oil flow and scratch one motor.

    Might not be worth telling the insurance if the damage is just a little over your deductable.. IF SOMEONE KEYED YOUR CAR then you would come up pretty well and it would be worth the deductable

    yeah well im pretty much for sure that my tranny is like seriously letting out.
    i took my buddy steven for a ride yesterday *hes like my personal mechanic/best friend* and everything something happened he was like thats the tranny lol.
    im thinking about getting a parts car and just swapping stuff then selling the rest of it.

    anyone know where i can get a decent parts car or a wrecked car? not trying to spend but like maybe 1500ish
    has to have a 5 speed in it, has to be a 96-98 GT interior needs to be either ALL Black or black/grey two tone

    why wouldnt your insurance cover an accident? If you hit a mattress on the highway it would cover it...same thing. THats why there is ROAD HAZARD coverage in your comprehensive and collision....no if you just have liability coverage you couldnt.
