    My Classic car insurance covers stupidity!

    Before I start let me say that the following pictures may make some car enthusiasts sick, so view at your own discretion! About a week ago I was working in my shop and thought I could accomplish my task without moving my GTO outside. I was wrong. Somehow, I managed to scratch the driver's side rear fender down to the metal. With our annual car show coming up today, I ran the car over to my body shop to see if they could touch it up. Imagine my surprise when they said it couldn't be "touched up", they would have to blend from the front fender back to the rear bumper and over the trunk to the other side quarter panel. They gave me a $1500.00 estimate and said they couldn't get to it for a couple weeks.
    I called Hagerty insurance co. and the agent was very helpful. After explaining what I did he said no problem. I had to send them a picture of the damage along with the estimate and they agreed to cover the repairs 100%! I should be getting a check in a few days.
    I went to the car show today and put a bandaid over the scratch!

    That scratch reminds me of when a friend had just picked up his mail and kinda pop the clutch and ended up with something very similar. That is a beautiful machine.
    Did you get hurricane aftermath there? Is carter mountain president Jimmys or his brother Billys? Ha joke... Ive grown tired of all out winter. NOS Pontiac's are sounding more fun than desert arrowheads and I’ll dtill do that.

    No hurricane problems yet! But, the one in the Gulf now may come toward us later in the week. I like to look for "rocks" too.

    Freedom is something that dies unless it's used.


    Time is like a river. You cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of your life.

    A student said to his master, "You teach me fighting, but you talk about peace. How do you reconcile the two?"
    The master replied, "It is better to be a warrior in a garden, than to be a gardener in a war."

    My friend had a van that we went to van shows with and it was all tricked out, he even had a trailer that was made from the same year van that was from the cab back. Well right before a big van convention we detailed everything up and were getting ready to take off when we hear that scraping sound of metal on metal and we go in the yard to see what it was and one of his toddlers comes walking by carrying a yard rake over his shoulder YES 5 tines metal deep scratches down both of his vans. His wife had to grab the kid and I had to grab her husband. Those were his pride and joys and I don't mean the wife and kid.So I know your pain.

    Not a GM fan but got to say the 66-67 Gto was a sharp car. Is that a 389?

    I’ve always liked the goats of every year. The closest I came was the “poor man’s” GTO year 1971 GT. Blue w/white stripe down the side with Endura ‘rubber’ front end. 350 three speed on the floor. The dealer sold three in my town. I bought mine used from a friend in 1982, at that time I knew of a copper-colored one. Have not seen another in almost 40 years.

    Great looking car. A GTO is my dream car. I had a 1977 1/2 Z-28 back in the early 80's that I use to put into car shows. I feel your pain about the scratch, but it sounds like its all going to work out (minus the aggravation) !
