sad labor day

I had a horrible labor day here in Alabama we've had an insane amount of rain the last few days and I hydroplaned and laid my 98 supercharged GT to rest in a watery grave the entire front of the car was under water and the whole inside was full up to the dash. Sad sad day

Insurance company says they are probly going to total it but they are willing to let me get my aftermarket stuff off and I may try to by it back and put a salvage title on it and pullout all of the interior

Hopefully it didn't injest enough water to hydrolock the motor and/or the supercharger.

Send some of that rain towards Texas, we're in a severe drought. Didn't know you could buy it back, good to know in case something ever happens to my baby. Good to hear everyone ok. Upgrade time

Re: sad labor day

wow that really sucks...the northeast, PA is specific is getting hammered with rain. Hopefully the supercharger and goodies are still good. Let everything dry and hopefully it'll crank without any issues.
