Happy Thanksgiving, good to enjoy the company of you all, I guess I want to say I am thankful for many things but one specific thing pertinent to the forum, I am thankful my 500 was only slightly damaged and not severely damaged which could have been the case!
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends. You were in an accident?

Driving in a road construction area on a very windy day, concrete barrier to my left car to my right, Chevrolet Avalance in front of my we are doing around 55-60MPH and approaching a corner, wind had left a large orange/black road construction sign (big steel sheet) in the middle of our lane, he had nowhere to go and ran it over, kicked up and wind slammed it into the drivers side front of the car, scratched bad but no cracks or chips luckily. Around the headlight and foglight the paint is down to the black plastic underneath. Luckily no dents, dings, holes, cracks etc, really shocked how well it held up but much of it had to do with the sign impacting relatively flat and it deflecting down and left, had it went right or up a MUCh greater amount of damage would obviously have occurred.

On my way home this morn from Bestbuy I come up to a dead 6 pointer on the side of the road and down a way a car pulled of the side. Whole right front end all done. I was thinking if I was maybe 5 mins earlier could have happened to me. Whats funny I took the long way home from the store. Maybe a 5 min difference.

Glad your OK and Fiona will just need some cosmetic surgery to be perfect again.

Fiona needs a nice set of HID"s, I mean make up for her eyes.
Fiaona was replaced with Mirabella which oddly enough has almost exactly the same damage in exactly the same place!!! Coming home from visiting some forum members for a week and doing around 75-80MPH a car changed lanes and kicked a rather large rock (small boulder!) up and I swerved as much as I could and almost missed it but it did manage to just clip her and spun around and smacked the wheel. Hopefully soon that as well as some warranty work will be resolved though. :cool:

Mirabella has HID lights and so many more mods by the way. ;)
