Ranger Saved Me

I got t-boned by a car in my ranger a couple of days ago. I don't know how many other cars could have taken that hit and left me without a scratch like my ranger did. I even managed to get her started again. That engine really is bulletproof.

That's a pretty good hit. I don't see why you would have trouble starting it though, I don't see damage to the engine area.

I wasn't sure about damage to the fuel system for starting it. All of the fuel lines are in the drivers side frame rail where I got hit. I was t-boned by a 96 caprice going at least 40mph
