first time getting hit...

Well it happend.. I was just spending a nice Friday night with my lady friend. What do i see when I walk out? A smashed headlight, scraped up bumper and no indication of who did. It was at about 10pm and I see it so I call my parents then the cops to file a report and all that (keep In mind I'm only 16) but the least the person could have done was leave a note or somthing. My beautiful 94 now with half a headlight and smashed up driver side bumper.. Taking a trip out to the junkyard autozone and a paintshop to see what I can get done...god I really wish I knew who did it..

Man that sucks... But it would be a good time to upgrade your stock headlights to clear cobra headlights like i'm doing. right at $50 new from ebay shipped from "carpartswharehouse" and they are really good quallity. The stock header panel behind the headlights if needed is only $40 shipped. Front bumper cover is under $30 but cost like $120 to ship cause of freight charges.

Nice night with your lady friend huh LOL. Look at the bright side at least they didn't crash into your car twisting your chassis or anything major.

That does suck man, its funny because I bet if someone pulled a hit and run on them they would make a bigger fuss about it. As said before at least they didn't harm the frame.

The thing about it is he/she didn't have insurance and you would have to fight it anyway. I am sorry it happened like all of us we put alot of work into our stangs and want to see them stay in one piece.

I'll never forget when I got my door smashed in from a damn chevy suv. I have a 2000 mustang and the collision center did a wonderful job with finding me a new door but the bottom clip of the interior door panel is broke and they don't make interior door panels anymore for the 2000 mustang.

Re: first time getting hit...

people dont care to take responsibility for their actions anymore... just be happy its not a super big issue... and maybe you can get a different bumper or something out of it.
