Corvette hits deer. Corvette-1. Deer-0.

It was early in the morning and was doing about 40. A young deer darted from my left to the right and impacted the car dead center. The dear was projected about 60 feet to the right and was dead when it landed. I pulled over to take a look at the dreaded damage. To my amazement there was very little damage. I got lucky once but I don't think I will be that lucky again.

The license plate was a little out of place so I pushed it back in place and as you can see there is a panel missing in the grill. This panel is meant to be removable. I didn't realize that it was missing until I got home.

Does anyone have a panel they want to part with?

A similar thing happened to a forum member last year. According to that forum member, the individual pieces of the grille are not able to be ordered separately. They said they had to replace the whole thing.

Click where Mobius said it looks familiar up in his post.
I see a "group buy" in our future where we collectively buy a single spare grille and remove panels from it for individuals who need a panel or two for repairs such as this.

Around here, we have to watch for moose. And moose are hard to see at night. Their eyes do not reflect headlights. A moose could easily kill someone in a low car by coming through the windshield.
