I hit a deer on the way home earlier tonight. Everything's still running fine (aside from some issues I was dealing with before hand.)

Oh man I've got some damage... 156303_180354121977774_100000095638105_660216_6430593_nOh man I've got some damage... 156148_180354188644434_100000095638105_660217_3832173_n

There's a pull a part here with two rivis, neither the same color as mine though. But I'll have to dig around there to see if I can find an intact grill and the driverside headlight. Maybe even a hood and fender...

I suppose I could get some aftermarket headlights though... Are there any available for our cars?

That sucks.

So are you gonna be eating some venison? or did it survive?

Unfortunately, it kept on running along after I hit it. Funny thing, I saw a dog not even a mile up the road that ran across and thought to myself. "Good thing that wasn't a deer... Probably would've hit it."

And then BAM. Deer.

I'm just glad I didn't total it... seeing as how it's practically mine. (The folks are giving me the title at the end of the year.). Though I won't be happy until I've restored all the damaged parts.


I may do a few posts once I get started on fixing it to track my progress, after I fix all the under the hood issues I've been having. (Before I hit the deer that is.)

frown Glad you are okay though. Sounds like the car can be fixed too which is a plus. I can't stand deer. Seeing a lot more accidents related to them lately. I think they are starting to spread a little too much and they don't really have natural predators... the hunters need to get out there and continue killing them off. haha

I'm sure enough of them get hit by cars to start thinning out their population. Lol.

I checked with the pull a part and they don't have any Rivieras in anymore... So I'm gonna have to start looking around really hard for them.

sorry Chris but your damage ain't that bad + eBay is still full of parts no problem.

Ebay huh? I tried poking around but I didn't really find anything... upon a secondary search though, I managed to pull up a few of the parts that I need.

You can always try Ed Morad. He's on ebay too. You probably already stumbled into his store.

Actually, I haven't. Thanks for that name, I'm putting some of his things on my watch list right now.
