Today my realtor,wife and myself went house hunting again today when we were rear-ended by a Dodge Ram! It was a pretty low speed accident, but when you mix a Ram with a 300e at any speed the result is not good. The impact was pass/rear corner, where it tore the top of the bumper, smashed the taillamp, kinked the trunck lid and buckled the quarter panel at the gas filler. The trunk floor looked kinked as well. My wife was in the back and felt the impact pretty good. She did not scream "my neck, my neck!" until this evening before she went bed. She is a little stiff and is going to check it out tomorrow. We don't want to take any chances. Anyway I told my realtor given her cars age(15 yrs) and mileage(183k) the insurance may total that car. I hope not because she just put a rebuilt tranny and a/c last year! The part that got me was the buckle above and beside the gas filler. That does not sound good! Any words of wisdom?

ps- I got a $500 deposit on the 84' 300d from a bidder on E-bay! He is driving from Michigan Sat. to pick up the car! He better!
