He did have hlep. I wish I could say he went too hard into a turn at the track and backed it into the wall. But the truth is a much more dangerous scenario. A lady driving an SUV while on a cellphone.:bang
yeeouch....that has to hurt. Sorry to see the damage but I think your in good hands getting her all fixed up. I have been curious as to how a vette looked with a rearend hit...mine was rearend a long long time ago square in the rear bending/crumbling each of the rear frame extension forks perfectly even crunch on each side. My frame is rust free and solid with no previous pitting etc. but I do got some issues from the accident that nobody in the past bothered to fix. I have been lucky thus far and able to work around the slightly bent frame damage not causing me too many problems yet. I bet you can't wait to get your sweet ride back on the road again.
How are you going to splice in the rear deck? Will you be able to get it from under the deck with diff in the car? post some pictures as you go along.
Zwede sorry to see this. Remonds me of my buddies 71 green vert, 454-365 some guy cut through an intersection and ripped his LR quarter off the car. The guy didn't stop but my buddy craved the guys plate in the ripped panel.
Painted the car and then sold it for $6k to buy a sportster!:crazy: BTW it was 1980 and $6k was a little high but it was an original 4 spd vert with a/c and Hdtp. I should have bought it!:thud:
Good luck getting it back - I'm sure you two will do a great job.
