Here's what some idiot did to me a few hours ago. Decided to call it a day. Got one garden completed, was going to bid another job, and this is the result. I was making a left turn, with turn signal, and some guy tried to speed around me for some reason, T-boning me in the drivers door and behind the bed. Shoved me about 15 feet sideways, door in my side. No injuries, just a bit sore, but the truck is whacked. Can't open the door, window shattered to bits, front end making a funny noise. Ugh. So...how was your day?;)

At least you now have a reason to retire your Chevy and get a man's truck. LOL.
Glad you aren't hurt though.
Lemme guess, the new intersection at wal-mart on Gause??


P.S. I have now saved your number for 3am prank calls. LOL

LMAO!

Actually, it was Gause, but on the corner of Rue Rochelle. Yep, other guy's fault. I forgot to tell y'all the best part. The officer had us move our vehicles to a parking lot, while he is talking to the other guy, ANOTHER idiot backs out of his parking spot, hits the front of my truck, and drives away.....with a cop standing 20 feet away. I saw my truck rocking, heard a little tap and squeak, looked over and the guy pulls away...just drives on down the road. I'm yelling "Hey! Hey!!", cop is looking at me funny..I told him what happened, but I didn't see any damage at all so I called him off...he had one leg in the door about to chase this guy down. Man, what a day. lol

Insurance, yup...HIS.

Yes, sorta', the name from Bayou Liberty and incorporated the Liberty bell in my newspaper ads. So it's kind of our Liberty and the Bayou Liberty combined. Grew up on that Bayou....will likely die here too.

That's too bad
Are they going to total it? If so, that would be the best deal because when a truck is wrecked in the cab it could be hard and expensive to fix, and it may never be right.

What year is that? Mine was hit almost exactly like that, exept I had no damage to the bed. Mine is a 98 F-150 and it was about $3000 to fix. They had to cut out and replace the rocker panel, thats the expensive part, and it looks pretty much like that on your truck.

Gee, that's too bad. I got hit last week on the rt. side of my bed. No way near as bad as your's. If they total it, maybe you could change the cab yourself? I did it to my '73 Ford a few years ago. The cab was rusting away and I came across a wrecked truck w/ low miles that had slowly been picked over. I bought it just for the cab and put all my trucks insides in it plus 2 new doors. Lot of work, but worth the effort as I go another 15 yrs out of it! If you get a good buck from the insurance company you might make some money on it, or just part it out. Good luck and flad to hear you're not hurt.

Wow, my dad had a truck exactly like that, 1990 reg cab 2wd. A lady ran a red light at 35mph and t boned him. Ended up totalling both the hyundai that hit him and his truck. However he drove that truck another 1000 miles. They will probably total it out assuming that the other party has insurance. Try to get as much out of his insurance as you can, i want to say my dad got somewhere in the $8000 range 5 years ago and the truck had 150000 miles on it. Good luck and I am glad you were not injured. You got to love those tough old chevys.

Looks to me as if you are indeed fortunate you weren't injured. The outcome could have been much worse, for sure. Glad to hear you are OK. Better luck the rest of the year. Neill
