wow!
Umm... how fast were you going? That's heavy damage for getting on a ramp.

I'm glad you are ok though.

They will definitely cobble it back together, it's far from totaled. I'd say there's 10k in damages.

You better do your research on shops, you have the right to have it fixed at the shop of your choice.

Give the guy a break. Having a stang in an accident is heart braking. My car was also hit, not as bad as yours, but they still had to repaint my whole drivers side.

Go to a insurance certified body shop you will have lifetime warranty. I made them repaint my whole drivers side 3 times until it literally came out better than the factory paint on the other side in terms of tiny imperfections that are on the factory side but nonexistent on the newly painted side. With a competent body shop and a competent eye you can get the car looking back to 100 percent.

That is painful to see. Sorry about the accident. Some repair places are better than others. My advice would be to ask around and see what experience people have had with repair places in your area. If you lived in Indy, I could give you one that is excellent.

Man that sucks. Glad you're okay. A good shop will put that on a frame machine to make sure it's all straight. Once they know that, it's a matter of repairing it.

Hold them to a high standard and be realistic about it.

Good luck. It does look like a repairable vehicle.

Thats pretty mangled but body shop guys can do magic with cars.

Black ice sucks, as you can't see it. I used to get up early in the morning to catch the news and weather report when I worked in Texas. They would give a "heads up" on the black ice conditions for the roads.

Glad you're alright.

That's what I was thinking.. If a guard rail did that much I couldn't imagine if he rolled in a vert. Glad it didn't happen, good luck to you and your car.

Exactly the reason i don't even drive the stang in the rain, if I have to, I take it very easy, driving like a grandma in a Camry lol

Sucks man. At least no one was hurt. Better to have learned this way than in a life threatening accident. Also at least its not totaled got some positives.

Try to get some stuff done to it. When I got into an accident I got my side skirts, mirrors, and rear bumper color matched silver for free. Maybe try working out a deal with the body shop and capitalize a bit on the situation? I also got a gt front End and roush grille instead of the regular v6. While I hate that I got into an accident, it transformed the look the car for the better. So try doing something like that maybe?

The car I spent 5 months of hardcore overtime saving money for 7 days a week. Gets me to the point of anger were I slam this inner city 30 year old idoit aganist the wall becuse he put the icy on the cake.
