Everyone has a different definition of "Friend." I have a lot of acquaintances, family all over the place, but very few Friends.
My old joke is if you receive a call at 3am asking for $1K cash and a shovel and you don't reapond without thinking, "What else do you need?" (Knowing they would do the same for you) the caller is not a feiend.

I was debating how to answer this when it first showed up this morning. I would be slightly annoyed at it getting damaged, but a real friend will make it right. That simple. Could be a defining moment for being a "friend". Some people I will loan stuff to, others not so much.

That is what would piss me off the most. You don't drive a borrowed car like you stole it. You baby that car.

Which is why I don't like loaning stuff out. I also don't like borrowing anything...not even a lawn mower.

I did something similar to my track car last year. I bought the used hood and panels and control arms on CL, and my body guy did the rest for $1800 I believe.

Make him track down the used parts and cash to fix. Or just have him call his insurance..

Before and after

He is fine. I am more pissed because this was a single car accident. He was racing around so 100% avoidable

I can't find my reading glassed anywhere, maybe you can help me out. My vision is a tad blurry but are those drag slicks on the front end???

The more I look at it, I think that thing is gonna be totaled.
Agreed, and why go through his (owners) insurance, it will penalize him even more.

I’d take it to a really good shop with the friend and his credit card. Charge his card up front after the shop did an extremely though estimate. Just hope he has at least a 10k open limit on his card.

Hahaha he wanted to borrow my truck since I daily drive the civic and truck is used for the river. I said no way you will crash it like you did yours. That should have been my sign. I have known this guy for 20 years since freshman year of HS. He was my my best man at my wedding and I was his. Funny story in high school I t-boned his thunderbird (1990’s t bird) in an el pollo loco parking lot. We had both had our DL for less than a month at that point lol. Maybe this is payback for that. I did get it fixed tho through insurance.
He crashed every car he has owned too. Should have been my second sign.

Ramona Expwy is not a road I would want to be racing on. I see bad accidents on it all the time.

in most states Insurance follows the car not the driver. Remember that when you loan out anything with insurance on it as its going to affect your insurance rating not the other driver. If OP doesnt have collision coverage then he can check to see if the other driver can use his insurance for collision as a non owned car under that drivers policy. but if OP has collision coverage he's SOL and drivers policy will not come into play unless for some unknown reason excess insurance is needed but rarely happens on a property damage only claim
