Iím sorry about your car. This just makes me sick to see this happen.  Iím glad you are ok. Iím not sure I would have been able to control myself at the scene.   There are a lot of people that shouldnít be on the road driving

Wow, That's a real bummer. glad your OK. I was in a similar situation twice so I know it can be devastating. It's easy to buy a Charger if you got the funds but not so easy to find/Buy another survivor car. LEON.

Very tough to look at. It seems like we are seeing a classic Charger in an accident once or twice a year now. It'll look better once the doghouse come off.

Wow, that sucks  Cry But most importantly you are okay. It is just a car, but I hope the car can be rebuilt.

What a shame, but at least you are here to talk about it. Had you been hit in the driver's door, the outcome would have been a lot different. I home that you had it insured for a stated value.

And the spin scrubbed off the power of the impact, so when it got ditched, it didn't flip.

Terrible to see.  Cry
Think of it as good luck rather than bad. A few inches closer to your door would have been a lot worse.
I hope you gave your wife and kids a hug when you got home.
All the best with the rebuild if that's what you plan to do.

Well that just sucks!

As I'm looking at the carnage, the passenger side front picture in particular, I'm wondering why the bumper bracket isn't/ wasn't attached to the fender?? You can clearly see the bumper bolt is there but no telltale ripping out on the fender itself?

Previous work done? Bumper or fender replaced? Or just dumb luck that the bracket/ bumper/ fender/ seperated clean?

Glad you are allright  2thumbs

Are you going to get your charger fixed or is it tweaked up too much?

Thanks for the well wishes everyone.

To answer the bolt question, the bolt ripped cleanly out of the fender. Pretty odd.

 I need to see how the other guy's insurance treats me and I'm going through some things right now as a result of the crash so please offer up some prayers for me. It's been a tough week....I'll share more in a bit.

WOW, prayers & best wishes to you & your family. As said before a few more inches & it would have been into the door. My brother hit a telephone pole in his R/T many, many years ago doing 30 mph, dead center of the drivers door. V-ed the door almost to the center of the steering wheel. The doctor said the only thing that saved his life was, he didn't have his seat belt on. Keep us in formed on the progress, & good luck. Tell the family you love them each day, life is to short.

Yikes! That's a real bummer. Tongue Glad you survived relatively unscathed, it could have easily gone the other way by the looks of it. Shocked


That bolt thing has me wondering. I tried to avoid using any Chinese fasteners that came with some reproduction bracket kits but instead used refinished original stuff and new stainless steel fasteners when I could. Just makes me wonder if some of these 50-year-old bolts have gotten weak.

It wasnít the bolt that failed. The bolt ripped right through the sheet metal eyelet located on the leading edge of the fender.
