rear ended!

Thought you all might like to see what happens when an F350 super duty pickup is driven into the back of a 65 GOAT at 40 mph or so while stopped in a line of traffic. I had just finished a complete dash/gauge/everything in front of the front seat restoration and two days before he hit me I had installed and dialed in the original carb and manifold.

Did the idiot say why he couldn't drive his vehicle?
Sorry for your loss, made me sick looking at those pics and I hope you get enough money out of that idiot for two GTOs and then some.

Wow, I feel really sorry for you. I hope you weren't hurt. Hopefully you don't get the run around from his insurance company.

To borrow from Shoeman: That sucks. Hope you walked away. Send pics of your new one. Stay safe.
