Hipo,

I bet you feel great having your car home, safe and sound. What a nightmare having your first car damaged in transport. Ouch. I wonder what they did with that car, and if they sold it as new? I am looking forward to your photos.

..Ford fixed it, and it was down at Olathe Ford (Kansas) for 15K adm. They acknowledged it had been repaired, and told me that they had dropped the price because of that. He then pointed to the unwrecked 20K adm shelby next to it

 

:banghead::banghead::banghead:

 

hey Travis

 

I will be back thru Rolla in late Winter/early Spring, and will drop by to say hi and take a look. Glad it has finally worked out. When you post pictures, you might consider showing off the 66 stang also, it is quite a looker and might start getting jealous :hysterical:

 

take care

John
