So yesterday I was driving home going roughly 80 mph and a deer decided to commit suicide on me...Wasn't fun...felt kinda weird at first, like surreal...One second I was driving and the next second I see a deer...a loud thud and smoke outta my car lol. It tore up both of the headlights and dented in the front end, complete demolished my hood and I can't open it up to see if the engine suffered any trouble. This was one **** of a week...But between God and the ZX I came out scott free...Just good thing I wasn't driving a Pinto :eek:P

Sorry to hear about the Z. Car v deer is a no-win. I

Would have been more concerned about the pinto if the deer would have rear ended you!!

Deer are no fun. I had the s**t scared out of me one fall about 25 years ago. I was driving a 1978 MGB at the time. I was driving home late (about 11pm). Came around a bend and had a deer jump out in front of me off a hill to the right. Then a second jumped over the roof. If the second one hadn't cleared the car I wouldn't be typing this.

that is really depressing, if i had to offer a bright side, it's that you can probably make back a fair amount of your investment if you part out the car. hope your engine isn't in really bad shape!

life is all ups and downs. this whole year has been a down for me, it sucks but next year is bound to be better. hang in there!

It may be fixable... My car looked like **** right after I crashed it but a new bumper, a new hood and some banging and you won't be able to tell after I get it painted...

LOL thanks guys, yeah...For some odd reason this week has been **** for everyone. I'm hoping to pick up a turbo this time, I was thinking about getting it fixed but it'll cost more than I payed for the car lol. I figure I'll get a new one (praying it's turbo) and then swap parts in if need be then start selling things. So if you guys need any parts! let me know! Just send me an email to [email protected]
