    MUSKEGON COUNTY, Mich. (WZZM)- For sale in Muskegon County - one slightly damaged street-rod. Take a look at Steve Anderson's 1927 Ford Model-T street rod. A neighbor's tree split right down the middle in Monday's storms and crushed the car beyond repair.
    Steve Anderson with Superior Auto Body said, "I seen that and I turned around and I could not even look at that. In fact I am just now looking at it, it's four hours later and I am just now looking at it close."
    Anderson says he parked the car outside of the garage last night because he was in a hurry. He bought the car in California and just got it ready to cruise in this summer.

    Ironic that the 1926-27 T's only had wood in the top bows and some upholstery tac strips, this one has a lot more now.

    I think since it was the neighbors's
    tree, that it's the neighbor who'd better
    have some good insurance.

  18. It's been mentioned before in many other threads... "Trees don't like old cars"!
  19. that sucks..big time. and like Mart3406 said...neighbor better have some good insurance

    That blows. It's not like it's easy to replace a car from 1927.
  23. As long as the frame isn't bent, it's fixable, although a different body will probably be easier than trying to straighten that out.

    The last one of these I saw crushed, literally got crushed because it was easy to get to by the scrappers.

    neighbors insurance may not cover an "act of god" seen it before when a friend had a neighbors tree fall on his fence, and the neighbors insurance wouldn't pay.

    It's not really up to the neighbor's insurance
    company to decide if they want to pay or not.
    The purpose of any insurance policy is to cover
    the person who pays the premiums - ie - the
    policy holder - for liability. If worse comes to
    worst and the insurance company tries to claim
    an 'act of god' or some other such nonsense
    to get out of paying, then the the solution
    would be to sue the neighbor for the damage
    caused by his tree. A court might have an
    entirely different opinion on the role of god
    in causing the tree to fall on an innocent
    next-door neighbor's car, than an insurance
    company that has an obviously vested interest
    in not paying. With a court judgment for
    damages against the neighbor, whether or
    not his insurance wants to pay up or not
    become moot and a problem not for the
    victim, but solely one for the policy holder,
    who can then fight it out with his own
    insurance company if he wants, to try and
    recover the cost of the court judgment
    against him. Whether he recovers anything
    from his insurance company to cover his
    losses or not, the court order for him to pay
    damages to the victim would still stand
    and be unaffected.
