Greetings greeting

Many of you may not know that coming from Carlisle. Last year on Saturday. I was heading home on I 78.. When I hit something in the road, here it was a lyft gate from a truck. I swerved to try to miss it. But I didn't and I hit it. It did considerable damage to the left rear. About $5000 birth since then. I was in the hospital for A- fib.. So it's been a long time running here.

II had just completed redoing my whole rear end last year. And now I have to do part of it all over again. I am almost there now! the car is almost finished. It's been long hall. 

I should have it finished by August 1st or second and I  will be driving it To Carlisle so I will see all you guys there. With a new underside, Hopefully it will be better than new.

There is a lot of work to put the rear back together, especially the bearings.. 

Don't let anyone tell you they can grease your car. You can't, it has to be taken apart and greased by hand internally. Which means you have to take the whole spindle and bearings apart. 

 

See you all at Carlisle

I assume your insurance is paying for most of this.

Yes, insurance covered it. Tracked down the truck and company. They had Erie, They're a juster  would give me only  two thousand dollars, I called my insurance man, which is. Corvette Museum  insurance They told me they would cover it and back charge, Erie. Their estimate was $5000. See  Erie's Adjuster work for Erie.. The towing alone was $500 back to my house.
