What Hurricane?

so yeah, we got ****ed by that hurricane gustav. 100% of ascension parish was without power, i still have no power or water at my house. my work did get power yesterday so i'm able to get on the internet here. alot of the surrounding parishes are equally as ****ed. lots of down trees and power lines. several houses i've seen have trees on em, some houses are a total loss. heard the wind was gusting around 90-100 mph here. so you can imagine what kind of damage was caused. as jarrod had mentioned in another thread my car was damaged. i had 2 trees fall on my shop and another tree fell on my carport where my car was. doesn't look horrible, but it will need new fenders, hood, windshield, and had dents in the roof. i have some pics on my camera but have no way of uploading them till i get power at my house. and i keep liability on the car, and homeowners insurance doesn't cover the car. so kinda sucks cause i was already in the middle of rebuilding the motor and the rear suspension. so just adds to the list of things to do. ****ing sucks. so just lettin ya'll know i'm still alive and kickin down here. hopefully things will get back to normal before too long. you don;t know how much you miss a hot shower when you haven't had one in a week. haha oh and cold showers suck too.

Re: What Hurricane?

i stayed at a friends house, not too far from where i live. was gonna stay at my house but didn't feel like sitting alone in the dark for couple days. so we stayed at his parents house. we were playin football in 30-40 mph winds and rain. lol. would have scrared the **** out of me if i was home when the tress fell. the tree that fell on my carport, if it would have been 6 inches taller it would have taken out part of my trailer. branches are all up on the side and against the window but didn't damage the trailer or window amazingly.

Re: What Hurricane?

Its good your house wasnt damaged. It sucks to hear about the car. Football in 30-40mph winds would be awesome.

Re: What Hurricane?

If your insurance doesn't cover your car, and the area you lived in was declared a disaster area (which I'm sure it was), you may be able to get the government to pay for it.

As long as you aren't Tina Turner, I don't think you have to really worry about being hit by Ike...

Re: What Hurricane?

lil update, got the carport and tree off the car. body lines look bad. looks like possible windshield frame damage, a-pillars are almost touching the doors, fender body lines are way off. pass door has to be pushed down to close. subframes on both sides where the jackstands were are bent and pushed in. both fenders, the cowl hood is now flat, windshield cracked, dents in roof, and cowl panel. dunno if it's worth fixing, thinkin bout parting it out and buying a sn body or another fox rolling.

Re: What Hurricane?

I cant really see the damage. But it doesnt sound like its worth fixing. It sounds like its a little to far gone. Youd probably have better luck with getting a new one, and shoving that motor and trans in it.

Re: What Hurricane?

yeah, if you glance at it it doesn't look too bad, but looking at it closely you can see the bad spots. might try to get it on a frame machine and see what they say. i know these cars a perty flimsy to begin with.

Re: What Hurricane?

The frame machine would probably be your best bet. Every body shop guy i know tells me the same thing after you bend the frame, and we straighten it the car is still never the same. They say it doesnt feel right.
