A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

I know first hand how being a protected vendor there will squelch any negativity and it sucks....



but I heard a long time ago as this was going down and Carlton did everything and then some to avoid this...

...and it happened anyways.


I'm amazed it's just now coming to light.  "Helping the community" my ass. You would have to be a net positive to be a helper.

I can't think of anything to add ......except make assa-nine idiot comments like...."did you at least roast marshmallows and tell buick stories while you waited for the fire trucks?".......so I'll just keep my mouth shut.
Sure hope this gets worked out at no cost to you, nasty.
I got some interior parts I would donate if it comes to that.
glad your back.  its not the same without you.   :cheers:

Man that sucks - but I wouldn't have let him near my car with the interior in it :x

At least he can't trip over the power cord for the server

This is also how he runs his business Mark, it's also why Eric Fisher and daily drifter don't work for him any more.

I know full well, Charlie. What hasn't been mentioned is that I went up there and lived and worked with him while his shop was still at the turkey farm outside of Baltimore.

Nice place - didn't even have working plumbing.

As I said on TB.com, I let it go, I am sure he will pressure Shane to get me banned. Whatevs.

While Shane is one of his best friends I doubt he'll ban you unless things get worse. Just try to stay out of it and let Clay and Brian try to get this resolved, which I doubt will happen for some reason. :chin:

Thanks for the support guys.  I'm sure you all have seen a burned car before.  Rust gets into places that you'll never get it out of.  I don't think that body will live again.

Sorry bout your car. Hope it all works out. As a shop owner it is always one of those things that is in the back of my mind. I launched a brand new Ranger off my front end rack, had to pay it all out of pocket @4k. It stings, and I'm sure Brian is probably gonna prolong the agony as long as possible. It appears there was nothing you could have done to avoid the accident. You're right about fire and rust, ironically, sorta like water damage.
