Second one since joining the forum... first one went because the economy took my job with it when it crashed, and now this, compliments of my stepdaughter on her drive to school this morning:





I don't know how exactly this happened, but the rear window of the Kia Rondo that she hit popped out, landed on the hood, and wound up underneath the driver's side wiper, but on top of the passenger one :confused



The good thing is, nobody was hurt. The truck wasn't drivable because the PMD was located behind the bumper, and is now crushed, not to mention the bumper was about a half inch from the front tire. Body guy (my neighbor) says the frame is tweeked, and I can see it a little, but only right in the front where the bumper mounts...

Debating on trying to fix it up, or calling it a loss, stripping the new parts (exhaust, alternator, glow plugs and a few interior items) that I'd just put on and getting another... I found a '95 Chevrolet 6.5 for sale in Lincoln, with alot less miles... HmmMMmm

She hit a Kia Rondo, some little crossover thing.

That's actually the back window of the Kia, it popped right out and landed on my hood, and wound up just like you see it. My wife texted me a picture from her phone (I can't upload from my phone to the pc) from the accident site, and it's just like you see above, under one wiper, on top of the other one

Dang, sorry to hear it man, but in the long run, like you said, it's just a vehicle. At least your daughter was safe!

What exactly happened? the kia slam on their brakes in front of her?

Shit it looks like it ate the Kia.
The Kia is thrashed... The only pic I have is on my phone, and I can't upload off my phone 'cuz I didn't buy the stinkin' software that you need (damn Motorola)

That's what I was told... It was an older gentleman dropping his kid/grandkid off at school, and they laid on the brakes because he was about to pass the turn into the driveway

If you put it back together, you should definitely consider a cummins swap. I know a guy who's doing one right now. Going to be sweet when it's done ;)

I heard about a guy doing one too, I think it was a red truck. I can't remember the guys name though, reminded me of Nebraska. :poke[1]:
