well i thought i got my car back to new agian, only a few scrathces and a painted header panela nd iw as reayd for carlisle.
well the car ownt be there, with 2 month til no wayic an fix this.
all who read this, specially teenager and college students are are "reckless" like me.
a 200hp+ rwd with posi doesnt not go well in hard turn apon accleration.
i figure this out as i spun out today and went sideways into a steel post and wooden barrior.
i wasnto hurt, the barrior did took soem damage and wel my rad support is shifted, i thought i be smooth and make it throught he light and get hoem,w ell afte ri got throught he into section fish tial away and thena 180* spin and sideways into it.
i dunno what to do yet as to eithe rfix or scrap, i love this car, 3 years through hell i think is it way of saying" drive slow you f**knut, as i know wil be withotu a TC for a few months AGIAN!
either this car is stil cursed or im just have plain bad luck, or im justa fuckign idiot, ahh im a fuckign idiot, fucked up my car, my liclsne and also my insurance, guess i wont be gettign a new car anytime soon.
sorry had ot vent upset over this, im such and idot all to get hoem 3 mins sooner! but ende dup being an hour late!

Thats some bad luck sounds like you need to a motor swap into another car. Mustang,ranger,pinto or another t-bird.

I don't think it's bad luck, or the car is cursed...it was driver error. Bad things happen when you don't pay attention whether you're driving a Yugo or a Pantera. Live and learn.

On a lighter note, glad to hear that you're OK!!!

I'm real sorry about your accident Brian. I've done the same thing - Race to get some where for 5 or 10 minutes, instead of taking your time & not risking an accident. It only took me 23 years to figure that out - & on occassion I forget & speed to get somewhere on time.

Good to see you were not hurt & sheet metal can always be repaired - deformed bodies cannot.

I've been real busy tring to get the bodywork done on my car. Give me a call. If there is anything I can do to help get your car ready for Carisle, I will just as soon as I'm finished mine.

KEEP THE FAITH MAN..... YOUR BIRD MUST LIVE..... YOU HAVE TOO MUCH TIME & ENERGY IN HER TO GIVE UP.

maybe i wil take a typign course, but fund wil be scarce.
it seem i have more frame damage then comestic, becuse most of it hit the lower part the rad support it push the front frame raisl towards the left so its abotu an ich os so off, but for frame damage that bad it crinkled, i think oen of my buddies at my old work can get me a deal to get it pulled.
now maybei can do this right, completely right, mayeba r estoration is intended for this, or i pul the motor and a few thigns anake another bird live , and rebuild my christine in my later live, i cant get rid of this car as Tony said, too much tiem energy and i foudn some blood forn when i cut my hand swappign my header last oct/nov. so she has a lot of me a lot of memories, she wotn be at carisle ill drive my agian dialy driver 86 stang, glad i kept it in ym abakc yard, thansk guys i wil get this figureed out mentally and phiscly , sad part was the car has never been this fast before!

Brian-
Here's a cool idea! everybody bring their tools and knowledge, you bring both cars. Out on the show field, we get everyone together and in the process of a weekend we convert (without ruining or destroying) the engine from the TC into the stang. Put on a show for everyone there. and show those Monster Garage Boys what is up!

Then again, it could sound like a cool idea due to about a week with almost no sleep and lots of coffee.
Currently birdless, but will get another someday!
