my bro's wrecked S10 (for eric)

yeah so my bro was crusin along in the right lane when some dude older than a dinosaur cut across from a side street and merged into him....he pushed my brother up over the sidewalk and this is what happened:

the old dude's car, an '01 impala




my bro tore up the road haha

hard to see but he took a chunk outta the curb


thats the wheel that did it


ouch, luckily his $450 fiberglass cowl hood that we put on 3 days ago somehow got out of the way and there isn't even a scratch on it





this cut his arm


pushed in the wheel well and bent up the radiator support




and the fan grabbed his $650 Fluidyne Radiator that just got put in...


the money shot


this fender ate about 3 years worth of treadlife off this tire....its flat


poor baby


he was okay, his arm was just bleeding, the old dude got a ticket for careless driving and it is his fault, allstate is just dragging their feet as usual...a claims adjuster won't even be out here till sometime next week and this happened wednesday! so he's riding his bike/walking for the next few days and then once the check comes through we're gonna fix it ourselves, if he gets the money before i have to leave

So what motor does it have? I saw coolant leaking in the first few pics and was worried about the radiator. I'm about to take my flex fan off and put on an electric for that same reason. That sucks. I guarantee that they try to total it out just because of how old the truck is. Good luck and thanks for the pictures. I'll have to put some more of my S10 up to cheer you and him up.

Heres an old picture. I have since cleaned up the wires, put a bigger air cleaner on, and added a brake booster....never had manual brakes on anything before. It felt like there was a brick lodged up the pedal when you tried to use it.



New booster


At the local track with the old rear end.


My best friends old s10...built 383 motor. Doesn't look like much, but this mother was bad until he slung 2 rods and broke the crankshaft and cam in half...a 400 shot on a stock bottom end will do that...

that is niice...the insurance adjuster came out today and decided it is a $2500 repair on an $1800 car (according to the book) so it was technically totalled, but he decided that with all the work done to it, it is worth much more so he's pushing it further to the discrepancy dept where we're gonna figure that out...probably the most helpful adjuster i've ever met and the MOST helpful Allstate has EVER been...so we'll know probably tuesday what we're doing
