so apparently she got vandalized. The current owner called me earlier and asked for a link for the rims/tires and body kit. they (thieves) raised the car onto cinder blocks, stole the rims and i guess during the night one of the blocks gave way, sending the front end into the pavement. front bumper is pretty much fubar, since it was cold the urethane has bent into the permanent shape that resembles a accordian. also messed up the front part of the sideskirts, and chipped most of the rest of the paint on those off from the impact.
he is pretty sure he wants to keep the Eleanor theme, so he will likely get some quotes. i told him NOT to go to the place that did the original work and the few respray/reblends (after i got sideswiped at a bar) unless he wants to have to go there 5 times and let them have the car for the next 3 months of his life. he will likely go somewhere else since its on the insurance companies dime.
makes me really pissed to say the least. keeping my eye out on craigslist and local mustang sites for a set of 4 FR500's with KDW2's on them, gonna hand out an asswhooping to anyone that attempts to get away with this kind of ****. or if i see anyone local stang with FR500's, they will get tracked and questioned (first ill act interested in their car, then ill ask where they got the rims, if they are clueless, they will get pressed for more info!).
