A few minutes ago, i limped Orpheus over to the lovely folk at Danlar Colision up the road (who don't *seem* to be inclined to screw me over). They agreed to take a look at him and give me a free estimate for repairs, if repairs are even possible. Score points for me for being able to eyeball that my strut was bent, as the nice fellow confirmed. They're going to pull the wheel off and see what else might be wrong. Unfortunately, Danlar's mechanical guy won't be in 'till Monday, and i did want them to check for any concievable problems with driveability, so i won't have the full story for a few days. Wish me luck.
The bad news is that i suspect a bit of the engine might have actually been damaged as well, since when i drove it over there, Orpheus seemed inclined to sputter and try to die while idling. However, i'm fairly confident in my ability to work on that sort of damage myself.
