Well it really worked when your avatar had the monocle... now, not so much.

Could be a fund raiser... start an auction, biggest donor gets to name you. I bid a dollar and choose Francis.

Argenteus LIVES.......

But hell if he didn't have to fight for that right.

On Sunday night....a 250-300lb 8-point deer decided to "appear" in front of the 1LE, 4 doors down from my house. Must've been going in between 45-50....airbags deployed before I could even recognize there was something in front of me, let alone what it was....This was not a good feeling.

Currently in the shop being repaired. Chevy built a TOUGH car...kept me completely scratch-free...and Argenteus will LIVE on.

Glad you are ok I had one run in front of me in the Camaro a couple of weeks ago. Luckily I was in a residential area so I was only going 25 mph and had time to stop before I hit it.

If you had kept your hood wrap the deer wouldn't have been attracted to all that shineyness.

I'm surprised it was able to pass Penny.

I guess Argenteus is still down for the count...

Argenteus is alive and well...

A little worse for wear...but it's only in the spots I'm too anal not to notice. I had to revisit the dealer/bodyshop 5 times!! for repairs of repairs. And finally...I ended up aligning the hood myself.

But...the important thing to note is that the black 10-spokes and summer rubber is back on, the Recaro's are comfy, and the LS3's pulling strong!
