  • ***Bad DaY***

    This is my definition of a bad day.... Driving to pick up sawdust for a beerkeg stove im working on,,Someone hit me and threw me into a spin,, which spun me into a concrete divider doing 50 mph The pictures say the rest... I came out a little bruised and battered but basically unhurt.. I will miss my truck that so willfully helped build my brick oven as well as many other proects..11 years old with 128,000 miles on it,,,, still had a lot of life left... and it was hit and run,, none of the witness could get a license plate....

    On the bright side, I am going car shopping tomorrow

    I posted this in humor as I am really not hurt that bad and my daughter is happy I will finally be buying a new truck... so I guess the joke's on me...
    Hope the insurance kicks me some decent money

      Sorry to hear aboat your little dilemma. Good to hear that there were no serious injuries, but a bummer nevertheless. Shame because it looked like a nice little truck.

      Best of luck on your new choice.

            Looks like another project just sitting there ready for commencement....a truck rebuild.
            Most looks like 'bolt on panels' with a little re-alignment! It wouldn't be any harder than building an oven for some.
            Anyway, with so few miles on the clock and as I believe the excess of the petrol guzzler vehicles, you should be able to get another good body and just swap the better mechanicals over. All in a weekend's work!


            PS. Good to see that those airbags were deployed and no serious injuries occurred.
            Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

                  I hope you are not hurt too bad. Those Jersey drivers sometimes can be aggressive and troublesome. What Exit? GSP or NJTpk? Hopefully not a local street at 50.
