Lookin @ MORE downtime for the Lude...

Long Story short, i was headin into work this past Wednesday. It was raining pretty hard. I passed a Big Rig and when going back into the right lane, i started to hydroplane.... Ran off the road and hit an embankment...
The result:



Ripped the front bumper right off.
The GOOD thing is, the only damage WAS the bumper being ripped off, so.... Lookin at gettin a Mugen front.
AND... since it's winter, the car is being parked anyway.
Gives me time to get the bumper, get it and my new fenders painted and put on the car. AND even tho the current tires have 90% tread, they're cheap ass tires (reason i hydroplaned) so i'm buying 4 NEW, GOOD tires...

So, it's back to the 1989 Chevy Celebrity "Blue Devil" as a daily driver/winter BEAST....
