  • Archie's boo-boo

“Archie Da Triumph”
A sound Tennessee car - no rust, no frame rot. Added in several bags of new money - seals, bushings, gaskets, etc.

Update - April 2016
The stuff below was written 2 years ago, and the car is still in a body shop, though it is a different shop, and reassembly is actually happening, albeit at a slower pace than I'd like. Maybe I'll see it on the road this summer...

The car has been in the body shop for the last 2 years, the result of being rear-ended in August 2012. Frame got slightly tweaked, rear end destroyed, boot floor wrinkled, rear quarters bent, and passenger door kinked. Replaced the rear panels and passenger door, and straightened everything else. Repainting the whole car, though not frame-off. He'll return to me in early May (or there'll be murder in the air...)

It's now mid-May, and I am still waiting. Was hoping for Memorial Day weekend, but a paint disaster at the body shop (not related to Archie) has thrown that schedule out the window, so maybe early June?

Well, now it's September, and following several threats of bodily harm to others, it looks as if we'll get to wet sanding next week. Who knows, maybe I will get to drive the car before winter...

ouch. This happened to my friends spit. People just don't pay attention. I had my car for a day and someone backed into it ( and drove away! bastards). As I just got back from getting my baby inspected and a little cruise, I sure hope you do get to drive it before the snow flies.
