Personally I'd pass on the camo unless it's going off road. If you want something loud, tye die wraps look better than I thought they would.

Sorry don't know how to post an instagram thing in a thread.

Edit: started looking through there, the guy who did that wrap is in PA and there's another vette with something more your taste on the page.

You say that like it's a shortcoming. I don't even know what an instagram thing is.

The Vette has an interesting "that multi-colored oil film kit kids dip eggs in for Easter" thing going on.

The Thirties called and want their dungarees back. Hey replace that working stiff looking lunk with a svelte little number in a bikini next time and you'll snag First for sure. Peoples Choice at the very least.

You know we've all given you plenty of horrible suggestions and it's time to just do something. haha

Well, it appears you came out of that one relatively intact. As long as there's no passengers (or other drivers/bystanders/deer) to ask about you don't really expect alot of sympathy outta this crowd do ya.

So yah, how far did it end up parked from this one?

Yes, Well A Given

Considering the looks of that poor thing I'd say what's most on your mind isn't sympathy, it's GRATITUDE! You standing there upright at least (with those dam dungarees) sorta kicks eerthing into joke mode now that you're still with us. I read about your hip in the other thread. Can you give us the deets?

Sure...

I was heading to my cars and coffee event about 8 am ish on sunday.

Really no one on the roadway. 55mph zone... came up on a street rod going about 40 ish. It was a passing zone so I signalled and went wide (on coming lane with no traffic of course). I didnt even down shift just ised mostly momentum.

As I was just passing the street rod... it felt like I got violently rear ended (but there was no one else).

Car made a sudden turn right... all I could think was to avoid hitting the street rod... there was no doubt I was gonna crash so I wanted to make sure I didnt take anyone else with me...

I jabbed the gas to try to get out of his way, and between that and his braking... we avoided contact.

UNFORTUNATELY the momentum put me into a hard spin and I went into the guiderail wth the front left of my car, which rotated me and the driver quarter hit.

So now I have momentum in a spin... and the guiderail sprung me back into the roadway... I went across the roadway towards the trees... had both feet planted on top of each other into the brake peddle but couldnt stop in time... covered my head and face with arms and went into the treeline sideways (passenger side first)... came to a stop against a big tree and concrete drainage thingy.

I immediately straightened myself out and made sure I could feel everything. A quick wipe over my head and face for blood. Found a lil blood on my cheek but no biggie. Called my wife from the car... calmly and very under rating the crash.

Got out... handled the scene till cops came. Walked to ambulance and walked from ambulance to er...

Scanned me... xrayed me... co tusions to head and left leg and broke right hip...


As for what happened... idk. Not yet at least. Either somethung broke... a tire blew... idk...
