Sorry to hear about the Monte. That’s awful!
Did this happen on the way down or way back?
Hope you keep it. I know Matt can fix anything.

Sad to say, this chapter has quite possibly come to an end.

On the way to Watkins Glen this morning, we hit a patch of ice and spun the car into the guardrail.

We are all ok, barely felt the hit. The car wasn't so lucky. The right rear is slammed inside the trunk, rear bumper is torn, the deck lid crushed, tail lights destroyed.

I'm hoping it's not totaled, but Matthew is pretty sure it will be. I should have an answer by the end of the week,
WTF ? So shock and sorry to hear this Dave. Glad you're not hurt. I know the weather was terrible last Sunday. In fact I mentioned to Ro when we got up that you wouldn't be hitting the Glen in this crap. I'm shocked they even had it. I'm guessing the accident happened on the way judging from the time of your post. Again so sorry I know how much work and TLC you put into it last year.

Yeah, wasn't one of my smartest moves. But it's a life lesson. Clint, we were just past the Clarence rest stop, heading to the Glen.

Sadly, The insurance company only gave me $3k for it. I kept it. Matt and i stripped it down and there is no structure damage. Now I'm waiting on the check to see what I can do.

We located quarter panels, and most of the other parts. I have a few spare parts, so if Matthew says we can fix it, we might just fix it

I was so hoping that you would keep it. With no structural damage damage I would think anything can be fixed. Luckily Matt's one of the best. It was just a shame it happened at all.

Well it’s been a few months of hard work. But the body Is in paint this weekend. With luck, over the next week Matthew will have the fender, doors and deck lid in paint. Then we can get started on the rear bumper and side skirts.

This week I’ll start cleaning and assembling the interior. Also I can run the new electrical wiring for the doors.

The goal is Labor Day weekend, but it’s going to be really close if we make it at all.
