1996 ford bronco vs 2000 BMW 325i

So Sunday was on my way home in the afternoon when a crackhead got behind me.










So there's some damage to the tailgate as well

I got rear ended one time but I had my trailer hitch in. the other car look about just as bad and there wasnt even a scratch on the bronco. the lady told me that she didn't have insurance, so I just drove away.

now you can upgrade to a beefy plate steel bumper that way next time the bmw will look even worse and your bronco will look even better.

Lol first thing that came to my mind, as i was being taken away in the ambulance was I can get that new steel bumper now with a tire swing. Lol
I did get a bruise on the left side of my head from it as well. Also the ds seat is broken from be bouncing in it. Think my head would of been in the windshield if I didn't have my seat belt on. I don't think she ever touched the brakes til the last few seconds.
It was some older lady, think maybe in her late 40's not sure on her exact age. She was alone and that wasn't her car. Her address was the same as the owners car, will see how this all goes.

My terrorist hunting license sticker was also ruined..... Was right next to the fsb sticker.

Seemed to hold up well. Still sucks though. Some guy in a truck rear ended me 5 or 6 years ago during a snow storm. Body shop put a whole new tailgate and bumper on.
