How Stella got her groove back

Well April 19 I had someone run me off the road. Actually turned in front of me with no turn signal. I avoided the head on collision by locking up the brakes and swerving left into the oncoming lane. But to avoid hitting another car in the other lane, I swerved back to the right and slid off the road. Ran up on a berm of grass. It grounded my chassis out. Blew out the a/c condenser and radiator. Minor body damage to the driver side and scratched the hood.

This was all the damage done.
I'm thinking ok, get the body fixed and repainted. Never did I imagine that this minor accident would turn into a complete makeover front to back. New suspension. Full repaint. Working on pricing for comp cams, 1 piece driveshaft, head work. Lots of upgrades,. Which I will post pics of.


Next set of pics are a few that the guys took for me at the body shop for my 'wall of shame'.

Bare with me while I download the pics from my flash drive and then figure out how to upload them from the laptop(iPhones make things so easy, they make us stupid)

After I came to a stop, I was stuck. I couldn't chase down the prick cause my radiator was blown. Needless to say, I was beyond mad.
This all happened at the end of my street

Since I can't see the pics as I'm uploading them, al I can see is a file name(guess I shoulda renamed each file), they aren't gonna be in order.

And the final touch was the Gtrac decals


The Steeda decal on the front bumper is no longer a decal, it's painted on. As well as the Q350 on the cowl hood, it's painted on too.
