Crash

Well this is my first post, so i guess ill introduce myself too. Name is Cory, and i just got a new 2004 zx5. No mods as of yet, havnt had it long enough (not 300 miles on it) planning on a vortech supercharger, intake and rims in the next 2 months.

Anyhoo, it was bout 9, pretty much black and slightly rainy, I was going home on some backroads near some feilds out west of my house. Small laned, not marked, no light, and deep ditches . As i was nearing a corner, about 35 or so, a small dog ran out in front of me. Normaly this would be no problem and i would just brake and swerve, but this time, in the narrow lanes, as i swerved, i slid to the side and my left side ran on the wet grass on the side of the ditch, and continued to slide untill i was in it. 3000$ in damage.... ack.

Ooooh, I feel your pain. I've got an '03 ZX5 and I am still trying to get over a couple of deep dents on the hood I got last summer on a road trip. Your accident certainly puts my little dents into perspective. Good luck with the repairs, and I'm sure she'll look as good as new when finished. Cheers and welcome to the forums.

The hood was pretty screwed up, both front lights, my left rim, left door and some damage to the engine.

The hit wasnt really that bad, the air bags didnt even go off and it was a really soft hit.
