Add mine to the wrecked list

Here's what an antelope does to your car at 82. Don't know if they can fix or not. He went under the front end and out the back.

DUDE THAT ANTELOPE TOTALLY F***ED UP YOUR CAR. Did you atleast get pics of the antelope? How big was it? Well now you have in excuse to get an aftermarket hood, front bumper and maybe even some new rims and tires. Actually you can probably even get new springs and lower your car while your at it. Sorry just trying to let you see the brightside.

How about having some BBQ antelope?

He wasn't big at all. Probably a two year old and was about 130 pounds I would guess. Felt pretty frickin solid when I hit too. Damn the back end sure swung back and forth til I got her shut down. Really don't want aftermarket parts. Just want my car back how it was at lunchtime.

Yikes!

Even though it messed it up pretty bad, I still hope the pony beat the antelope in that fight.

Best of luck getting it fixed. Hope to see "good as new" pics soon!

OUCH!!!!!! Sorry. You should be able to get her fixed like new. At 82 that doesn't look too bad. I'm from Pennsylvania and we have a lot of white tail deer and up state some elk. If you hit a white tail at 82 you are going to get allot more damage then that, a big buck can get up to close to 250 lbs. And an elk, forget about it, you probably won't walk away from that. Big animals. Is an antelope the same as a white tail deer only from Montana? In the Home on the Range song I always wondered what they meant by "were the deer and the antelope play". I've traveled all over this country and I never saw an antelope. I guess I sound kind of dumb. If I'm ignored I understand.

An antelope in eastern montana! I find that hard to believe. Just kidding! I have thinned the antelope population out there by a few myself. Once in a '69 Buick Skylark doing 95. That sucks in happened in the Stang. Maybe a grill guard will be in order.

Dude! Ouch for sure. That is a shame...buuuuuuuuuuuttttt.....on the lighter side of things, your license plate does say "Saddle up!" That is one smart Antelope!

I hit a rabbit once doing about 80.....ish (Hey, it was a really big bunny!) and that sucka left chunks (No relation) all over the front, wheel well and side of my Satin Silver, but luckily that is all I had to deal with.

Ok seriously, I hope you can get your baby back on the road soon all fixed up! Good luck.

Hello, dumb guy again. Looked it up, "Pronghorn Antelope". Only antelope in North America. Been around unchanged for over a million years. Can bound 40 to 50 feet at a time. No wonder you wacket it Whtmule. Amazing what you can learn on the AFM forum.

Yeah, I still have the crack on my front bumper from hitting a beaver doing 70..... That really bites, sorry you gotta go through it. At least it wasn't a Moose or something. We have that problem up here and the driver never wins.

I feel for you, man! I hit a deer last year just before Christmas with my F-150. Luckily, I just clipped him. The nerf bars helped deflect the deer away from the truck and doing more damage. Of course, I had the Mother-in-Law, wife and kids in the truck at the time. My 5-year old started to cry because Daddy just wacked Rudolf, so Christmas wasn't coming. I got mine, though. A semi came through just after me. Can anyone say BURGERMEAT?
Yours looks fixable, though. I know it looks bad, but it's amazing what body shops can do. Chin up.

OK, so I've added a few things to it. Check my Profile - too many to list here.

Sorry to hear about your car. At least nobody was hurt (except the antelope).

Antelope are part of the goat family. They are different than deer. I would guess he weighed about 150 pounds or so from how he felt when we pulled him off the road.
