I am sorry for this accident at the last moment before you could sell the car whole, and am glad you escaped any serious injury ..

In the event you would care to part out the car, how can I pay you for both the front door wood map pocket coupe trim pieces?

I would like to buy them from you.

Some of you may want to shield your eyes!!

For those of you that think I may have been able to turn the key off in time, it was such a short shot to the corner (400ft), I had only time to reach for the shift lever or the key (key may have locked the steering as well). The shift lever was much easier to throw forward and even by the time I did that it was already too late. The first reaction was to push the brakes, throw the lever and then give it some steering correction while coming up to the 90deg corner (a true 90deg L shaped corner).

My earlier post also made it sound like I just removed the air cleaner, but I did actually loosen, lube and made sure there was nothing obstructing it (obviously I missed something).

I have been running this accident over and over in my head, but any way I look at it I am just glad I made it out alive.

The car is now open for parts or as a whole package.
