    Why does it say "DODGE" on the back? Did you replace the tailgate on it?

    My rents have an old Colt, but under the hood it's all MITSUBISHI.

    One of many. Besides the 100% mitsus (D50, talon, etc), many more had mitsu engines, but usually ChryCo. trannies. Minivans, acclaim/spirits, etc. etc.

    Haven't seen the wizard, a friend suggested using dry ice? He said to heat up the spot with a hair dryer then use dry ice, to make the metal contract and pop back into place. Sounds kind of funky though.

    Sorry, meant KING not WIZARD, got my D&D characters switched up. Dent Wizard is the service, Ding King is the tool w/suction cups and the affix/twist process. Can't say I've used it myself but have seen it's results on a friends car.

    Ding King... paintless dent removal, if it's truly something which you think can be popped out. I found the quarterpanels are pretty flexible. I leaned on mine and my @ss pushed in the metal and I jumped up and it popped out.

    Course you can always pay more $$ for it to be done by a professional, which is what most Rex's deserve.

    Had a similar situation happen to me, but not as much rotation. I went to pass some cars on a two lane highway. I knew the passing lane was short so I tried to just use my momentum, but right as I get even with the first car an oncomming car comes around the next corner so I hit it and slide in front, but by this time I am doing like 80 (oops). I then know I had to scrub some speed for a sweeping, but sharp turn that I was already entering so I tapped the brakes and my tail was insta-out, I immediately tapped the gas and turned into the slide must have been going like 60-70 and before I knew it I was straightened out and heading for the next turn *whew*. First time I have ever done any kind of drifting move. It was scary but fun as hell at the same time. Scary because the whole time I was sliding there were oncomming cars in the other lane, but I now want to take this baby to a track and see what it is really made of
