Stupid deer!!!

Well guys the stang had rough nite. I was cruising over to an autozone in a nearby town because mine didn't have what I was looking for when I came around a blind turn to find a deer in the road. I knew the area well and swerved into a gravel patch on the side of the road. I slid through the gravel and over a small embankment. Lookin at probably $4000 in damages. Gonna call insurance company tomorrow

Driver side door won't open. Both fenders need work and the front bumper is beat up good. Aftercooler heat exchanger needs replaces as well

Oh man that stink you shoulda hit the deer not that it would've been cheaper, but at least you'd get yourself meat.

Hittin the deer may have been a worse idea because I know people who have had a deers antlers come through the windshield and impale them

USAA is one of the best in the biz, I think only Amica scored slightly above in the last consumer reports rating.

USAA is awesome. Especially handling claims and taking care of their customers. You'll be okay.

Unless u bent the frame I don't think it's totaled bro. Let us know. I was in an accident once that didn't look too bad but the frame was bent so they totaled the car.

Well guys it's totalled. And even more good news is USAA isn't going to cover it since I didn't hit the deer. Looks like I will have some aftermarket parts for sale here soon

Have you ever owned a fox? I get raped by chicks and guys at every light. Lmao.they get much more attention than newer stangs especially if it's boosted. I like your car though it is sweet.

Re: Stupid deer!!!

Too bad you can't "hammer" USAA to give you something, not sure what coverage you had but if it was "full", man they owe you something.

Pick this up, 99 Mustang Cobra Rio Red
...then part your car.
