On my may to work this morning I was on the recieving end of some idiot's road rage. I'm not really sure how I pissed this guy off, I don't think he won the match.
This is were the accident occured on the shoulder. I was trying to avoid confrontation and he was looking for it.

It could have been worse, but it just makes me mad I just put those new tail light assemblies on the other day. Maybe a cobra rear bumper is in the future.

That sucks, sorry to see that you car is too nice for jackasses to be near.  I would be suffering from extreme mental anguish I would have to sue for compensation for (to establish new part fund).  Things can always be worse, at least you are not injured.

man that sucks. but u know what it really does show ford tough. i got tboned in my old 2000 v6 by a dodge ram pickup doing 45mph and his truck might as well be crushed and the mustang only had cosmetic damage.

Dec 7th, 2006 @ 11:12 PM

Did you slam on your breaks when he was riding your ass? or did traffic stop quick?

Dec 7th, 2006 @ 11:40 PM


yes, mustangs are tough!!  sorry to hear about the damage. I was in a similar situation a year ago.  I was dead stopped on the highway in traffic (in the mustang) and a ford ranger aparently never saw the stopped traffic and rear ended me at 50 mph full bore.  I slammed into the car in front of me.  his truck was totally  screwed and couldnt drive it.  The mustang only "appeared" to have a cracked bumper, a ding in the rear quarter and a scratch on the front bumper.....there was much more under the skin, (in the shop for 2 months) but i was AMAZED at how it held up!!  best part....i worked with the guy! LOL.

as for the GT bumper you have....the insurance company should pay for what is ON the car...meaning the shop will have to find one.  I had mine repaired at the dealer.  only genuine parts for me, but what did i care, i wasnt paying!  They even replaced my MUSTANG inserts in the back.  as long as he is at fault, i recommend doing the same!

That dude has some serious issues.  I would be making some phone calls to the base commander before he kills someone.

Dec 8th, 2006 @ 7:57 AM


man that sucks,  but i think i may have a set of tail lights in the barn somewhere if ya need them. I just gotta find them first

Dec 8th, 2006 @ 8:27 AM


That sucks man


Dec 8th, 2006 @ 9:09 AM

When I got re-ended by a  guy with no insurance, My insurance replaced my entire stock bumper cover and teh Razzi rear I had on there at the time

Dec 8th, 2006 @ 9:28 AM

I went to the ford dealership for 1 main reason only.  If i ever wanted to sell the car, it is going to show an accident on carfax.  I obviously would/have to be honest about everything (which i would be anyway), but a potential buyer would rather hear "100% repaired by a ford dealership using 100% OEM parts, and have all the receipts to back up my claim......rather than "car was fixed by joe schmoes body shop.....know what i mean?  thats the biggest reason i took it there.  now, if i had to pay out of my own pocket, it may have been a different story, but since the other guy took fault....dealership it was!

Dec 8th, 2006 @ 2:15 PM

WOW that stinks man. Did you atleast knock the holy shit outta that dumb ass? Man if someone did that to my car on purpose I would unload a clip in there ass. That could be attempted vehicular manslaughter. Did he get arrested? Oh man would I blow this up. Call the base and find what squadron he works at and Get his ass lit up.    

Dec 8th, 2006 @ 2:33 PM


Did he know you were a policeman ?  I have the stock GT tail lights if ya want em. Just let me know


Dec 8th, 2006 @ 3:00 PM

Damn, Greg that sucks, I was a victim of the road rage as well a couple weeks ago on the 264 going to work, very similar situations.  These F people around here are idots.  Hope everything works out for you man.

Dec 9th, 2006 @ 10:53 AM

Dec 9th, 2006 @ 4:02 PM

Thanks boss, I will check those out.

Dec 10th, 2006 @ 1:14 AM

that really blows man...there are a ton of mustang only wrecking yards out there..dont let them put shitty aftermarket body panels back on... good luck... 5.0resto.com has a huge availability of new oem parts too

Dec 10th, 2006 @ 4:37 PM


I am really sorry to hear what happened! The same thing happened to ours about two years ago. The call to the base commander is an excellent idea, it will get his attention.

 Good luck!


Fuel your mustang love.
