I heard Greg had a little too much fun with the Pre A
And I saw the badass brown split verts hood get dented in from some dude falling on it
 This is right after the owner hit the dent out with his hand, you can see it stretched the metal a little

Yes the Pre-A and I did get a little out of hand Thursday night to start off the weekend.

I call it 'Curb Appeal" now....I suck at life!






As for the vert hood. That's my buddy Tony's car. I feel for him, but at the same time all of those guys (DBK) were crazy for doing a full line up right in front of the stage where people were walking, pushing strollers, jumping for t-shirts, etc. all day.

 The story I heard was pretty exciting.
 icon_lol

 Once I saw it I was amazed that it didnt look that bad.
My friend Mike (vwommack) from NC was in love with that car.

 We went to Charllie Hamills house after thae show. Amazingly awesome place and super cool guy.

It's a long story, but basically I was driving (racing) around the hotel fountain trying to get the car warmed up. I took a corner a bit too fast and when I hit the brakes I also hit the water from the sprinklers and slid right into the curb.

It was way worse than it is now. We did some late night body work in the trailer with ratchet straps and blocks of wood. I'll clean it up a bit more this week and use it as a driver until I go for a full resto.

Great weekend and Greg your new trailer is the shit. Too bad to see the 356 got a little twisted but I'd still roll it all day long thumbs up

Pulled the bumper off today. Already straightened out the brackets, and polished out the trim. Should have the bumpe straight and sprayed by the weekend.

Not as bad as I thought it was going to be.

This was the best Classic and most expensive Classic for me.

I stacked my Pre-A into a curb Thursday night, the tranny broke in it Friday morning, Friday night I managed to pull the exhaust off my Binz and tweak some of the trim on my trailer. Saturday I tweaked the trim on the trailer a bit more. Sunday I managed to pull a complete piece of trim off the trailer, and on Monday I plowed through some trees, scratched the crap out of the trailer and put a BIG ASS dent in the upper corner.

I'd do it all again for the good times and laughs I got in return. I'll make some cheater ramps for getting the super low cars in so I can save my trailer ramps, and I'll pay a bit more attention / slow down when towing.

Nothing I did can't be fixed. The memories though, could never be replaced.

Good times this past weekend. I definately needed it to get back motivated on the project. Big thanks for putting those wheels out for me in your booth and then taking care of the sale from A to Z. Driving the 356 was probably the highlight of my weekend. I think it would make a great downpayment on a house in Az. Perhaps one at 2703 W Kiva.  wink I will even throw Jay in on the trade if you leave the Nor Cal king crabs on it. Good seeing all my homies out there and if any of you are ever in Minneapolis (ya right) hit me up.
