    Shit, what happened?

    Was following a Colorado up my street after work, probably about 3.20pm. He swerved right over to the right then back to the left then stopped dead.
    I stopped obviously thinking ‘wtf is he doing?’ When he sticks it in reverse and just drives straight back into me.

    I had no chance to get out of the way, about 20 metres out of a school zone so ramming it in reverse and nailing it wasn’t really an option.

    His towbar has punched through my bar hit the reo bar and pushed that back into the radiator and air con condenser.

    Was about 400 m from my house.

    Turned out he saw a snake shooting across the road and was trying to run it over.

    Was concerned about school kids getting bitten... so I pointed that he was more likely to run a kid over reversing blindly...

    Apparently he’s trying for a loan to pay for repairs.

    I hold little hope I will see any money.

    I’ve already ordered a new reo, condenser and radiator.
    Started stripping it last night and will go buy a decent spotweld drillbit over the weekend. Once the bent reo is off I can measure the rails and hope like hell they haven’t come in

    Straight forward repair just bad timing, I have a large dentist bill today so my priorities are there at the moment. (I have a somewhat irrational fear of dentists lol)
    The mob I got my rear bar off has two t3 bars in stock so I wanna check them out.
    New bar and paint are the expensive parts but whole repair will come in around $1200 ( unless I have to pull the rails straight)with me doing everything except paint.

    Fun times. This car has been a ‘two steps forward one step back’ car right from the very start.
