Hot Rods Wrecked my coupe today.

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by NoSurf, Oct 30, 2008.

  1. Hey NOSURF,
    Hate to hear the bad news. Mainly glad to hear you came outa it mostly OK though. I Kinda know how it feels - my '36 lit up one night and burned the engine compartment, wiring, hoses, fried the paint on fenders, firewall and cowling and even melted the solder right outa the radiator. But we finally got er fixed again.
    Keep your good attitude - anyway what a story to tell the kids!
    Good Luck man..........................

    That stinks. Wishing your ride a speedy recovery.
  6. Hey, neighbor, glad to hear that you had lunch with Povertyflats and Cuzzindeke today. I hope they were able to cheer you up a little. I like your attitude that you hold about the whole happening. I am sure glad you and the family are okay, and I know you will have the Ford back together again really soon.

    Damn thats painful just looking at it. Sweet car before and you can obvisly rebuild it just as nice. Good luck with your recovery and your cars! I would get some screws and my power drill and some hot glue and make that power pole look like new! haha. Sorry to make a joke at this situation but you seem to have a good attitude about it.

    Oh No !

    Glad your'e doin OK. When I hit a pole, I didn't exactly walk away.

    As for the car, bring it back badder and meaner than before.
  16. Damn! I hate these stories........'specially when it's my friends involved. Glad to hear you're only banged up a bit. Hey, I have a stock 40-41 front axle if you want it. It's not dropped but with the proper administering of heat and force, it could be. Let me know if you want it. Gimmee a call.

    Jesus, I'll bet you're pissed! I know I would be. It seems you have a really good attitude about it all, though. That's good to see.

    Just be thankful that it was a wooden pole, not a "Stobie" pole -,27574,24565196-421,00.html

    Stobies are metal and concrete poles used in one particular state here in Australia - they are less likely to break that wood:)

    Good luck with the rebuild!

    It's been awhile since I heard a story about you leaving the road! Little more damage than you let on over the phone, to you and the coupe. The pole you seem to have described accurately, though!!! From the pics, the airbags don't seem to have deployed...
  30. "This ain't asphalt's DIRT! You gotta pitch it HARD" -doc h.

    Parts I can donate:

    • a stock 42-48 axle and spindles and split bones
    • two 42-48 spindles with drag link arms cut off
    • ribbed dirt track tires (should of had those last night)
    • stock model a front spring
    • a 32 roadster that needs a motor/trans
    • a 33 model 40 that needs a motor/trans
    • roll of solder and flux
    • 3 bloody knucles
    • let me know what else you might need
    Love ya buddy.........
