Sad news this weekend guys...

Well, guys, I hit a deer with the Malibu... I was on my way home at cruising speed(50mph), and a big deer ran at full speed from the far right... Never seen it until it was too late..



Now just waiting for insurance appraiser to come out and look her over...

Lots of damage done, I fear they'll total my car...

My daily:

2007 Chevy Malibu LS
L61, 4T45, 152k miles
Lots of aero mods, goal of 40mpg highway...

My toy:

2004 Saturn Ion Redline
LSJ, F35, 167k on chassis, ZZP S3 pkg
2.8" pulley
Full intake, header, and exhaust

Freshened engine, with ported head, 82#valve springs, and water/meth coming soon!

Re: Sad news this weekend guys...

Important thing is that you're fine.

If they do total it, maybe you can find yourself a well taken care of gen 7 or gen 8!

Wel, I'm also at a point where I really can't afford to take on a payment, so I might end up with something older/smaller/cheaper... Not that a nice Gen 7 wouldn't be nice... LE5/6T45 FtW!

Wouldn't mind to find one of those "fleet only" 2008 Gen 6 with the 3.5, either...

Re: Sad news this weekend guys...

Sorry to hear that all that work may have to be done to another vehicle, but glad to hear you're okay. Is your freezer full of venison now?

Honestly, I never looked for it... If the gut were damaged, the meat wouldn't be as good... I prefer to shoot my venison, lol

Sorry to hear , but glad you're fine. I'm in the same position monetarily and with 195,000 miles on it, I try to keep mine on the road as well.

Re: Sad news this weekend guys...

I met the appraiser today, and he inspected the car... He was friendly, but that has no bearing on how the insurance company will treat me...

Re: Sad news this weekend guys...

Well, the news come back today, my car was considered a total loss... I guess i get to find out what they're offering me for it... Hopefully, enough to pick up a decent Gen 7, but i doubt it, and have shopped some cheaper cars... Don't want a Gen 5, lol...
