I was leaving a camp in the country late last night. It was pitch black and a sharp turn came up, before I had time to adjust I was nosediving into a 4-foot cliff-ditch. Airbags blew, hood destroyed, driver's fender pushed back into the door. Front bumper is messed up. When I open driver's door there's a huge, blood-curling POP. Radiator looks fine, not leaking.

I don't know what to do..

Man that sux. Hopefully your ok

Did you file an insurance claim?

Sounds like the mechanical stuff is allright. Maybe find a good body with a blown motor?

There's really no reason to file insurance claim. No one else was involved, and I only have liability.

I'm really debating on finding an actual GT to swap things over to. Either way, car's getting parked for a while. I shouldn't have been driving it anyway..

Glad to hear you are ok. Things can be replaced. I hope you can get back in your Stang soon.

Wait a bit before making a decision, if you can. It might give you time to come up with a good idea for what will work best for you.

That sux.

Check it for frame damage and if there is none, replace the front end?

Okay guys, tell me what you think.
I'm messaging a guy with a '94 GT. It's flat black, with what looks like a saleen rear bumper and some euro tails. Not exactly my style, but those could be easily swapped out.

In pictures the body/lines looks real straight. The interior doesn't look too pretty.. but the "only thing wrong" is it needs a new water pump.

Selling for $1500, which is really tempting if it all checks out.
Here's the ad:

Probably worth the money, but I'd sure get rid of the bumpers and tails IMO.
Just be sure you go check it out closely before buying.

Same car just went down to $1200. Either he's desperate for money or he's not being honest.

It doesn't look like it has had very good care, which is why I thought you should look it over carefully first.
If you want it, look it over, offer $800 and if he says no, just walk away.
