Ouch.

What happened? Who commuted in to who? Heh.

Sorry about damages. On the plus side, maybe it won't be too difficult to repair. Hard to tell while the hood is still attached.

Close Dimund! I ran into the back of a box truck @ a whopping speed of about 10MPH. It's already repaired, I got a hood and headlight assembly for $175 and installed them promptly. Now the only problem is that I have a red and green car.

Heh. Good that you got it fixed.

Don't feel bad about having a multi-coloured car. In fact, welcome to the Skittle Club!

Thanks for the positive spin on that. I was hoping to paint the new parts to match, but it's supposed to rain here all weekend. Hopefully your outlook will keep me sane.

And if not, just print out the photo of my car and use it to remind yourself how bad it could be.

Don't you know the sleazy used car dealer's trick for this? Yeah, our symmetry-oriented brains want to put one matched pair on the front and the other matched pair on the rear. But think about it - you can't look at both sides of the car at the same time. So if you have two different pairs of wheels/covers, you put one matched pair on each side (so, in your case, say, the sawtooths on the left and the swirlies on the right). That's what they do at those used car lots on the edge of town.

Ok I feel better to know that I'm not alone. But I still cringe every time I look @ the contrast between that aquamarine and fire engine red. Oh well it could certainly be worse.
