I got into a little accident coming home from work halloween evening (as you can see).

Mazda has already told me the frame is damaged enough I'll have to do a chassis swap if I want to continue driving this engine. It was evident when I pulled the panels off that the chassis was indeed splintered but the engine is just dandy so I'm looking to swap it into a 626 or 6 if I can find a good deal on one.

That looks like my LX did when I crashed. Only thing was, it messed up the fender and hood too. I remember one day i was driving it after I crashed and the front bumper fell off and I ran it over and it got stuck underneath the car. I had to pull over to the side of the road and with one of my friends help, I managed to get it out from under the car and stuck it in the back. lol

Another one bites this dust. This is really sad, guys. Every week someone is on here saying how they wrecked their car. Keep this up and there won't be any left on the road! Take it easy out there!

Well it would be an easy fix if the frame was repairable. I've already been told they could cut it and weld it back together will a donor but that price is more than another chassis will cost me.

Looks kind of like a goofy grin to me, like she just ain't quite right in the head. :) Good luck with it all...

I had a similar crash. I was told that they would have to take part of the frame, from the firewall to the bumper (basically eveything underneath the fender) to fix my damage. I found a shop that would pull it out and put in a new radiator frame that I bought for $50. $700 in bodywork afterwards and BAM. It looks decent again.

Yeah that crash does look real similar to the damage I have. I suppose I'll continue to pull parts until I'm down to the radiator support and have a better look at the frame. Two shops have told me they wouldnt be able to do anything besides cut it and re-weld but maybe the 3rd time will be the charm. It sure would be easier than swapping engines wouldnt it?

Dyoel: I have headlights, front bumper, grill, and hood if you choose to fix this one.

Fenders are sale pending.

Look in sig.
