    I finally got my pics developed and scanned I sent them to steve to post but thought I would give you guys a sneak preview. The body damage isnt the bad, but the frame is twisted like a cork screw. So I have begun my frame up resto will have pics posted soon.....

    Hang in there BB. If you want to sell your soft top to finance the repairs, let me know. [​IMG] Just jokin....

    Hey, you should make a trip down to St. Louis and go wheeling with me. I have some real good trails and camping spots. We would have thousands of acres to wheel on in the Mark Twain National Forest. Get that cool rig fixed up and come on down.

    My truck was stolen then wrapped around a pole about 3 weeks ago. I am rebuilding the truck from the frame up so I will not be selling my soft top. Sorry guys...

    Actually to add insult to Injury I only had liability on the truck. So they wont cover it. When I bought the truck it wasnt worth having full coverage but after all the work I should have changed the insurance...

    Ughh, it kills me to see a truck in that condition. Makes you think about your fellow man, doesn't it?...
    Anyway, good luck to you on your resto. BTW, is that an 87 Trans Am GTA in the driveway? Ahhh, what memories...(my 86 T/A looked just like that)[​IMG]

    Hopefully the steering wheel caught the guy's throat when he hit the post....noticed that that your glass is still ok. Too bad, it would have been nice to see a big face imprint on the driver's side of the windshield. The satisfaction would have been worth the cost of new glass........

    I feel your pain, Jan. 6 1996, a "gentleman" with the IQ of Dirt, turned left in front of me while i was coming through an intersection, to top it off, he was driving his sisters uninsured car, so i had to claim under uninsured prop. damage, $3500 max payoff, they totalled my baby, gave me $3500, and my truck since they valued it at $4350 (after a huge battle) and the frameoff started 6 months later after i found the new frame, it was a bummer, there's no way to make up for other peoples stupidity, on the bright side the grand am was totally totaled, the roof was wrinkled, but the sister did try to steal my tow truck, b***h, anyway just know that you're not alone, i few of us have been in your shoes.

    Man that is a shame, enough to make a guy cry....
    Wish you the best on the rebuild. If you need any help looking for parts and all, just hollar...I don't think I am all that far from you, (in Toledo). Take care...

    That Sucks!!!!!!!!! While I was out of the country about 11 yrs ago my dad hit a backhoe bucket. The dang thing was hanging out in the street and at 6:30 in the morning the AZ sun can be very bright. They said it was his fault but if he would have hit it at night it wouldn't have been. Go figure! It trashed the front and twisted the frame pretty good. It is amazing how much the frame can be pulled back out. I did have one little spot that had to be welded. Well to shorten this story I fixed the front and then my little brother wrecked it. Just fender damage but Crap!!! 11 yrs later and I'm still working on it. It sat for about 5 yrs but man it has taken a while. I'm changing the color of the hole rig. The moral of this lame O story is it sucks and it might take longer than you thing to put back together, but hopefully not 11 yrs.
