Default F'ing Deer!

I got my '02 Limited last year with only about 40k miles on it, and it was in decent condition. Then one day a friggin' deer darts out in front of me at night. Yeah, I hit it, and it hit the drivers side fender, rolled up onto the hood, hit the windshield, rolled off and ran away. The damage was minimal, no broken glass and a few dents in the fender, but it did bring to mind a question...Since our beloved PT's are going away, how hard do you think it'll be to get body work done on them? I want mine to stay as close to factory as possible (body wise...the engine is another story), but if they're not making them anymore, it seems to me that it's going to be harder to get replacement pieces.

I hear somewhere that even if a company stop making a car they must still make remplacement parts for 10 years, but I can be wrong

yeah, have to make replacements for so long, but I feel your pain, I got a ground hog the other night. I was down this dark country small town few weeks ago. Me and my two friends went down for fun because supposedly there is a haunted church but it was just a normal church on the way out I was doing about 40 and hit a ground hog, at first I thought it was a cat due to the quick speed, but there was no hair or blood on my car, just left me with a nice bill to pay. Anyways it ran out of these shrubs and since my car is pretty low with the aftermarket body kit I had no chance of the animal going under my car... chipped the lime green and messed up the black



The grille green is cracked, well the clear coat and it is noticeable not flaking off yet. she'll probably get her fixed next weekend.

I've hit an eegret 3 years ago while driving to school. It was trying to fly across in front of me and ended up diving into my driver's side front fender. It was a loud impact and everything went in slow motion as I saw the eegret's eyes close shut when it bounced off!
