That sucks but I am guessing it was your fault. So why?

Damn........

Now that's a good way to ruin your day. To the trucker, it probably felt like a small nudge if any.

Sorry to see, I don't mind those cars at all. Be glad you're okay, had the bumper bar not been there you could have gone right underneath. Like said, time to start over and better this time.

was this by iron skillet? btw you didnt just scrap the reflection tape, that beam on the bottom is slightly bent, and you hada do atleast 40. I say keep it and rebuild. What'd you have done to the suspension? Looks like stock height to me, or possibly eibach springs/

I had a '93 gt 5psd for like 2-3 years, but I had to sell it when I got my truck. I loved that car, amazingly under-rated and a blast to drive.

Find me another one while you're at it.

I'll bet he's writing you a thanking you letter for making him go for a pee in a cup, and prolly buying you a hallmark card for the fight he had with his safety manager.

Oh well next time you'll pay more attention. You're lucky his D.O.T. bar was so low, most are much higher and you would of slide a lot farther under the truck and could of been hurt real bad.

Save yourself the trouble of the structural damage repair and all the little details and start with a new car. Maybe something with damaged parts you don't need, then just swap over the good parts. If you enjoy the car that much don't give up on it.

Did the air-bags deploy? It doesn't appear so.
