OTOH, I used to live near a guy with a yard that looked like that all the time.

A fine example of Buick as the foundation for the rest of the GM cousins.

This was about 10 miles out of a town called Washtucna going westbound for spring break.. after getting off the phone with state patrol, I was advised to carry on if I felt the car was okay. She carried me 4 hours home without issue other than limited visibility and I made it in one piece. She's too important not to, I just don't know when I'll be able to. Im meeting with the insurance company tomorrow after I finish the incident report with the state patrol. We'll see where it goes from there, but from price matching online, it's going to require about 2k without paint. That whole corner is unbelievably mangled and I am not a metal worker nor do I have the tools or the shop. The itemized list I'm looking at includes driver front fender, hood, mustache, grill, grill emblem, bumper bib, inner fender and latch support. Vancouver, WA has two 56 Centuries, I just need to figure out if I'm actually going to get money from this or not. 

 

It was a 70mph collision with a 150lb animal. That's about 0.89MJ of kinetic energy. I do not think the animal suffered considering I splattered it Chris the highway and kart wheeled the catcher's 10 feet off the other side of the highway. I barely felt it and the only thing I could do before hitting it was get out "oh sh-". It was unavoidable, and would have otherwise totaled a modern car. I consider myself lucky it was a side front impact and the deer didn't go through the radiator core. The smell was awful for the first 2 hours back home. The car had red racing stripes down the side. Honestly, i'm surprised the deer's legs were still attached to the body.

So sorry Ben about your troubles and as others have said, glad you were not hurt!

Looks like the Buick can be made whole again, keeping fingers crossed with the Insurance Adjuster. 

It certainly wasn't something you wanted to have happen with all the car has put you through but especially with messing up plans for a much desired Spring Break!

Keep us posted on your thread. Hang in there!

Heart breaking! Glad you are okay! And I hope things work out with the insurance company.  

 

They should show this to other deer before they are allowed to cross the road!

This accident brought about legislation that the semi-trailers needed to have a bar attached to the back on the bottom that would prevent cars from going underneath the trailer.  Some call those bars "Mansfield bars."

There's quite a bit of info if you Google 'Mansfield bar.'
