Today was a sad day!!!

Driving home from the gym with my gf when an old man decided to pull out in front of me literally 15 feet from me as I'm going through an intersection. Ended up T boning him. RIP Skylar (my mustang)

Very unfortunate that this happened. Are you alright? You made no mention if you were injured in the crash. I'd assume so, that was a hard hit. Hopefully you can salvage some things off your car. I can see it was quite a nice piece. Get another one and make Skyler 2.0!

Today was a sad day!!!

Yeah I honestly think the seat belts were a major help in the situation, I had bad neck and back pain and was taken to the hospital, only had cervical sprain and lumbar sprain so I got lucky, just a couple days out of work. My gf was in the car with me but she's fine just a bit sore so thank god for that too. And yeah I got full coverage on her so whatever the insurance gets me will go to a new mustang

Buy back the wreck and use it as a donor car or part it out. At least make sure you get your aftermarket stuff out of it.

Glad to hear everyone is ok as well. I mean **** happens we all make mistakes but this is really ****ty. Should have mandatory road tests every 4 years... Might get idiots like this guy off the road. Hopefully he loses his license so he can't wreck anyone else.

Actually looking at this you got lucky with the belts. Aftermarket seat belts bolted into the ground like that can be more dangerous than stock.

Glad you are alright though. Looks like a nasty wreck. Keep us updated on what insurance says.

So sorry to hear about this man! It's always tough but the important part is that you and your girlfriend are okay!

I hope everything works out in your favor and please remember that you can reach out for some help whenever you need it!

Thank you very much for your sympathy, that's the reason why I always shop from you guys. Very down to earth and caring. Another part that sucks about this accident is I literally had just put your guys Saleen staggered tire kit on maybe a month ago but I'm alive. That's what matters the most

Wow that's a hit. Glad to see you are ok. Neck and back injuries can get worse with time so definately keep your eye on them. You went to the hospital so it is documented which is good. Sucks for the car but you can replace that. Still sucks though.

Sorry about your car. The most important thing was that you and your girlfriend weren't injured severely. Any accident you can walk away from is good.

It actually has DIY part length ones. They will be cut out over the winter and Steeda ones straight from Downs Ford are going in at a local shop here.

Its getting Steeda vinyl stripes and a Steeda wing at some point too lol. Although I DO want to find a 99/01 Cobra front for it and a better hood at some point. Steeda does make a hood but its kinda just a copy of the Cobra R.

That sucks so much man but you nailed it, the only thing that matters is that you're alive.

Make sure to shoot me a PM when you pickup the new Mustang, I'll make sure to hook you up.
