    Well that didn't last long...
    I purchased a 1972 Buick Skylark 4 door sedan in November. The car spun out on the wet roads today in Philadelphia.
    Badly damaged drivers side fender, drivers door, and rear quarter panel.
    I want to get it fixed but not sure where to start.
    All repair costs are out of pocket.
    So, I'm looking for a body shop in the Philly area that'll handle the task.

    Also, if anyone knows of the a junk yard around Philly to search for a fender or door I'm not opposed to replacing those part my self.

    Thanks for any help.

    Oh man, sorry to hear that. There were accidents all over today so you definitely weren't alone. Im assuming no one was hurt, so that's all that matters. Crumpled metal can be fixed. Im sure if you posted up a wanted ad you will find the parts. If it helps you, I have a driver's side fender for sale. No bondo. Just needs the typical rust repair on the bottom. Im on LI.

    Thanks for the reply. No injuries. Thanks for asking. My son was driving and hit a parked car. He’s pretty upset though since it was his first car and accident. I’m interested in the fender. I’ll let you know if I can’t find anything closer.
