    the Mav. anymore...:tsk:

    6:45 AM Effie hit a deer on the way to work...dead deer.
    8:45 AM I had the parts in hand.
    2:15 PM parts installed, car washed.
    4:00 PM picked her up from work in it...:thumbs2:

    from the looks of the last pic, it wasn't her first hit...two birds behind the bumper cover...:yup:

    Wait did you re-badge her escape into a Maverick? That would be AWESOME.

    I hope she's ok (your wife too).
