well leave it to boomer for telling me the car is totalled, after seeing the pics that isnt that bad at all. it definitly sucks but fixable.

10-14-2011, 02:31 AM
Again sorry Ron but your ok and that's what matters the car can and will be fixed

10-14-2011, 02:32 AM
well atleast it went like hell before that!!

:-( glad ur ok

10-14-2011, 03:01 AM
Thanks everybody! As of right now all I will be doing is getting it back on 4 wheels so I can get it the shop to check for frame damage. The car will be fixed but I don't when/how long. The car needs a total rear clip put on it. This more than a winter project! When I do fix it it will be getting a total makeover as far as paint is concerned. Luckily the engine/trans is still good. I will be checking the rearend/suspension in the near future.

:( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

I think a part of me just died.....I'm surprised at how much damage there is on the side where the studs sheared. You must have smacked into that wall pretty hard. Glad your ok tho!

10-14-2011, 03:20 AM
wheel/tire stuffed into wheel opening

10-14-2011, 03:43 AM
It looks like the right rear hit the wall and caused the left quarter to buckle

10-14-2011, 07:20 AM
not sure if it's just me... but it really doesn't look too bad from a structural angle if the rear end isn't bent (but maybe the axle shaft is), but to get it back on the ground and rolling might not be too bad. The rest looks more cosmetic.

then again there could be a lot I'm not seeing in the pics.

(just thinking optimistically)
good thing you walked away
hope you didn't stain the seat though....

10-14-2011, 01:51 PM
Sorry to hear:(

Good news is you're OK, and it does look like it may be fixable. And when it does come back I bet it'll be faster and even more awesome:Superman:

10-14-2011, 03:12 PM
glad your ok it could've been worse. the car is fixable i feel your pain.

10-14-2011, 05:36 PM
Again bud iam really glad your ok. I will say one thing. I feel special I was the first one you told haha.
It will get fixed over time and look even better

10-14-2011, 07:26 PM
Sorrry to hear that Ron. It'll be back and better than before knowing you. You'll have something up your sleeve other than that cane of yours! In all serious glad your alright. Has to make for one hell of a story when you tell it.

A friend of mine stopped by at lunch and looked at and said the frame is bent just behind the rear wheel( I saw it now looking at it) but it isn't that bad at all. Once the frame is fixed a lot of the damage should come out pretty easy.

I will be fixing the brakes/wheel studs and getting it to my friends frame machine soon. I may be able to drive it after the frame gets fixed.

10-15-2011, 07:54 AM
like I said if the rear is straight then at least it's drive-able. (just need to fix the brakes and replace studs)
So you'll look funny running with your ass off center. You've spent enough time around Pizza to say that it's nothing new. :hump2:

10-16-2011, 08:27 PM
sorry that happend

10-17-2011, 04:23 PM
Thanks again everybody!

Fixing the wheel studs this weekend and going to frame shop in the next week or two to get the frame straightened.

Should be up and running again soon minus the bodywork/paint that it needs now.

10-17-2011, 05:15 PM
cosmetics < up and running.

10-19-2011, 02:51 AM
See, like I said from the pics, really doesn't look all that bad. I've fixed worse lol!

10-19-2011, 01:58 PM
See, like I said from the pics, really doesn't look all that bad. I've fixed worse lol!I know if I had a nice car and did that i would have called it "really bad" at first cause my super mint car is now not so super mint lol
