Definitely worth saving, but with it's history, do you dare?

Reason number 212 why you shouldn't have a car shipped by the guy with the cheapest bid, and
reason number 13 why you shouldn't park your car under that 300 year old oak tree.

Too bad the car was damaged but still could be saved. But how many NOS grilles are still around ? It would be intresting to see what the grille would brimg on its own. Ed

Heck, the roof, and in fact all the panels, are very straightenable; the real question is if the car is done with it's bad luck yet

That car could be a poster child for a collector car insurance company, as it is a good example for why one should carry full coverage insurance. With that said, most of my cars don't have full coverage insurance.
With that top damage, I wonder if rain leaked into the interior and trunk being that it was parked outside.

Another 'ran when parked' that's had the crap beat out of it. Pity, it was a nice car... once.[V] Looks like all the damage is fixable. He's going to have to just suck it up and take the loss though, poor fellow. The car's too beat up and isn't running, so therefore not worth much (which is still a fair amount being that it's a Hawk).[B)] Truely a pity, but there it is.:(

Honestly, I see alot of potential in that car. If I was a little closer, and it didn't sell on Ebay (And I had the funding of course); I'd probably try and give it a go.

You are right Dylan, especially in it's Interior! That is one sweet, full DASH! Nice Interior and headliner. It would be tempting to just re-body it, using the NOS and good parts from it. [^]

It shares the same fate as our range rover[}:)] which had a tree fall on it in a tornado 2 years ago, but we still drive it and used a floor jack to bend out the roof. Its all wrinkly now!;)

Maybe we should develop a Hard Luck Award for this person. When it goes wrong it can really go wrong.

Depends on the collector car insurance company.
Some state the car is to be kept in a locked garage.
Betcha there's be some dancin' to do[B)]
(Now, if the tree fell on the garage and the garage crushed the car[}:)])

You got that right "Deepnhock" They would not take mine because my car port is not closed in with a locking door. To bad for this poor guy, the car looked like it would have been a good one to fix.

Well, if they really do "come in threes", then it must be done with the bad luck...

You would be really suprised what packing those dents with Dry Ice would do for it. Dry Ice pulls some really bad dents out.
