Road Kill

I can't recall having hit anything for the last five years. Then I got a Camaro and the local wildlife numbers are beginning to suffer. Hit a raccoon about a month ago and a fox yesterday morning.

The fox ripped 2 or 3 connectors out of the sacrificial air dam under the front. The fix should be easy as long as the holes in the fascia are undamaged.

I'm not surprised. It's such a good looking car, even the wildlife wants to get a closer look at it. Unfortunately for them, they're getting a little TOO close...

I've had deer and a red Grand Am jump out in front of me. No collisions. I hope your repair is an easy one.

And are summarily eaten in a bloody mess. The Camaro must feed.

Anyone get the option where the front fascia dislocates so that it can eat mustang's whole? I think it was RPO: NOM

Just sheared 8 of the plastic nut/bolt assemblies that hold the lower air dam on. $3.42 for each of the 16 pieces that I need. No suitable substitute at Fastenall, Lowes, Home Depot, etc.

Also ordered touch up paint...got my first ding at 7000 miles.
