It's been a while so first hello to all my CL friends
So a few months ago my wife had her night class and had driven my LS to the UofM. I get a call about the time class should be over and it's not good news, she had ran into one of those steel/concrete filled posts in the parking lot misjudging a turn. Let's just say I was pissed but happy that she didn't get hurt and our son wasn't in the car.
Even though she was going slow the accident made the car undriveable. Had to get it towed to a body shop for an estimate. Long story short, it was declared a total loss and we sold it to the insurance company. Even though I loved my LS I decided it was time to let her go; I had it for 7 or 8 years from what I can remember. We scrambled to narrow down what the replacement would be and although I did consider LS430's I couldn't find one in our market for the right price. We ended up with a 2008 Prius package VI (the high-tech factor drew me in). Earlier in the year we had bought a 2002 ES300 which is what I mainly drive now.
I have no plans of taking down LexLS.com and still have a number of tutorials I need to write up. It didn't look as bad as I thought but there was damage to the frame....R.I.P.

OOOO,,sorry to read about this, but the important thing was that no one was hurt. We all tend to get attatched to the old girls and it is hard to let them go. Just make sure you check in with us from time to time.
you and i had similiar situation. i had a 01 ls430. hit a deer last november. damage did not seem that bad, it was in the same place as your damage, repair shop estimated it would need at least $7500 in repair, so the insurance company cut me a check for $18k instead.
I am an insurance agent. your car will most likely be back on the road. it will be sold at an insurance auction and someone will probably straighten out the frame and repair it or part it out.
thank you for keeping your site up. it has been a great asset to me and a lot of other people i am sure
hopefully you let LexLS live on, or hit up someone before deciding to shut it down. i'd be willing to keep it alive!
