Well, got my finger "smashed off", what would you do w/$$,$$$???

At work, the tip of my left index finger got pinched off in machinery...

It is healing well, might need to get some re-hab after this but not sure.
My question to you is what would you all do with the $ (keep it car stuff)
and remember that I'm also V6 oriented and wish to advance the R&D.

Also if you have any suggestions for negotiating the "settlement" I'd
be interested in that as well. Very much so, TIA!

Haven't even bought it yet


I have almost enough parts to build 3-4 V6's in my shop,
from all-steel 3.8's (SC crank) to 4.2 and bigger. I've
done 2-3 strokers (4.2 and 4.3) and I'm thinking of doing
a huge SPI engine.

when I was younger, I had a finger cut off in a bathroom door... yeah, not pleasant. They sewed it back on, and it works just fine.

yikes, sucks about the finger. but good luck with the $

since you asked, personally, i'd pay off my credit debt so i'd be on the level again, then use the rest to secure an apartment or nice place to live. all depends on the settlement

pssst... make aftermarket v6 heads

Wow man, that sucks. I'm guessing it's not fixable. Last summer when I was working w/ the orthopaedic surgeons I'd see this kinda stuff about once a week.

Thx everyone, I'm doing well, just lost a bit of the tip...
I'm thinking about fully building a truly big-inch stroker and
getting it 100% sorted out then selling it.

AFAIK the roots intake is still a go, I helped alot on the
design and planning, Constantin Andreev was doing it and
supposedly I specced out 2 cams for guys who were testers
for the units. I need to get on 3.8 and see what is up w/Him.

PS: I lost skin only on the fingertip, but there was so much missing they
had to remove about .25" of bone to allow the remaining skin to cover it up.
Skin and the fingernail, and there is plenty of phantom nerve pain to remind
me of the missing piece. I will have a new fingerprint when it is fully healed.

I have to say...I'd probably either invest it in a good motor...or buy something, fix it up, and sell it lol.

I think the guy that was going to test that roots blower thing lives in KC. I was at his house this weekend putting my new suspension on and he showed me his 3.8 motor and the blower that they were gonna rig up. Apparently the guy that was designing it went off to college and nobody has really heard from him. If you want me to get ahold of the tester engine and get you two talking, I can try to help out.
