Thank you...
It is only by the grace of God that I'm still alive...
My illness has almost killed me three times, the first time if I waited another month before seeking medical help. We wouldn't be having this conversation. Now it's working on the fourth attempt...
But the doctors here are very good, I believe they can finally kill the illness, permanently...


Adventure till you drop

I told my nephew about the car and he absolutely loves that he's gonna ride in a 200mph car. He got mad that I said he wasn't going over 80...

Wow man. Your not kidding, she is totaled. Silver lining is that you can upgrade to a newer model. What sucks is that they never give you what the car is worth I'd be hard to replace it with the same caliber of a car.

They won't give you a lot but the buyback will be low. They will give you 4-6k depending on condition, miles, etc. They will also give you a chance to buy it back probably for like 500 bucks and then you can part it out and make some more money. Or find another donor car to rebuild it!

That's a great point. Get a clean one that is limping around for cheap and swap all your parts over. I recently took a Ford Explorer completely apart that I got for free (yes free) and I have made over 4k parting it out. Even the body and frame cut up and taken to scrap got me 200 bucks. And I still have the motor with the gt heads not gt p heads

Yeah I don't plan on getting anything more than 4000. But I believe I will buy it, thinking about using the motor trans and rear end in an ole truck. I've got a 55 ford truck cab, and a 76 2wd short bed frame. Probably gonna piece together a Frankenstein.

Thanks man, im just a little sore. Surprisingly none of my wheels and tires got hurt and they were pretty much brand new! And I just happen to be doing a crown Vic front suspension swap on my old truck. Then I can change my axles on my 9 inch to get the same bolt pattern and put my wheels and tires on it!

Holy crap! It's getting nasty here in western va. Rained like crazy then froze and snow is piling up on top. Doesn't look bad but it's slicker than snot. Looking forward to driving home from work later Click image for larger version

It got past the storm, it's at a local UPS location. I could drive there in 15 minutes, I'm thinking the shipping label was damaged.

I can't barley move this thing. I was able to get to the road but the freaking plows haven't even made a dent so I am literally sitting at a gas station right now. I hate the east coast. I need to get back to my roots and move back to SoCal. F$&# this snow man.

Try loosing traction and fishtailing at 60 miles an hour on I95 because of freezing rain that Thor caused...

I didn't get that far! That sucks. But I made it out to the Main Street, and was stuck, yes stuck in about 1 minute. The ice that is under this snow is unreal. I'm like 20 min from my house...yeah had to have my car towed off the road (50.00 and that's cheap as hell) and now I'm sitting in a super 8 with no extra clothes or anything. Sounds ridiculous but there is absolutely no way I'd make it home tonight. So I threw in the towel. Damn you Thor!

I bet you pee'd a little when you lost that traction! Lol.

Haha, I'm amazed I didn't crap myself. Fishtailing all over the highway is sketchy AF. At one point I was close to a 90 degree angle to the highway.

Ironically... "Indestructible" came on XM37 within a minute after that.
