So since we are having a heat wave today I figured I would start pulling the bad parts off the wife's car she wrecked the other day.
It will need a new radiator which is already on order. The AC may not work any more because the condenser of it is bent but not sure if it leaks at this time and due to the time of year not likely to be able to test the system. Grill is totaled and will need to be replaced. I may do as the wife has asked and build a deer killer grill in place of the plastic one it had so if she hits a deer it dies instead of the Geo Tracker. Was not fun pulling the radiator on it with it being 20 degrees out and the coveralls making it hard to get my hands in where I needed to

She got lucky on this one. She hit a couple of fence posts the T type and broke them off. One of them is what messed up the radiator. Grill most likely got broken by the same fence posts but it had a bad crack in it any how. Any more when I have to replace parts like these I have found it is better to build heavy duty stuff because well lets just say the wife etc. seem to like to hit deer etc.

"isnt collision work fun!!!!"

I've done just enough to know that is not what I want to do when I grow up!

Or any kind of body work!

Always thought, instead of defensive driving, the offenders should have to spend a day in a body shop! LOL

I'm not being rough on her I am just saying it like it is. The wife has what I would call tunnel vision and does not watch for things on the sides of her when she drives so that in turn causes problems

One reason I buy a car for her is the ones I know will hold up better to having to bunch off of things. She has had 2 of these Geo Trackers and they seem to hold up well when to comes to hitting things. Her first one I lost control of an 8 ton road roller, engine died so no steering and it roll into the side of the track and pushed it side way but only put a small dent in the passengers side right in front of the door. Almost could not be seen unless you looked hard

Again Larry due to the fact you know little that really goes on you cannot ever understand. I was raised in a very strick German house hold so many thing many people think are common are not due to how I was raised. Hugs well you never got them or many other such PDA type of thing

From what I read in your earlier posts, you have also had to repair cracks in the frame of that thing. Not something my wife would be proud to be seen in, and I wouldn't feel good expecting her to drive it. Sounds like it is a wreck looking for a place to happen. Perhaps you should retire it to a life as a pasture beater.

The cracked frame was up front and was not all that bad. It is a 1997 so it is 20 plus years old. What we own we own for function not form. I would much more prefer to drive the ugliest thing on the road that ran real well then to drive a pretty car that spends 75 % of the time In the shop. Plus with our mile long gravel driveway the road it self can be hard on cars.
