    DISASTER !!!!

    Sorry Iíve been quiet for a while.. !

    After the car was all finished, we were on our way to the first show at the beginning of July, all excited ! Got 5 miles from home, and bang, a Lorry on a roundabout pulled out and hit the back of the car !

    It was early in the morning. Luckily some witnesses saw the whole thing, and were more than happy to help out and give reports to the insurance company.

    Its taken about 3 months, but insurance has now paid out (non fault claim), but the car has been declared as a Category D, which Iím gutted about, but it was the only way I could keep the car.

    This is a highly highly modified vehicle, which I have insured under its own policy, with every modification declared, and always have done.

    HUGE thank you to Lee Haswell at A-Plan, and Kindertons, sooooooo glad I paid for the legal cover each year !

    In over 20 years of driving, Iíve had very few claims. I thought due to the nature of the vehicle, and the modifications this was going to be a horrible end to a car I own (ironically, 13 years this year) with a rubbish pay out !

    Have I said thank you to A-Plan yet. An insurance company is only as good in the event of a claim, and this was really hassle free. Brillinat Brilliant Brilliant !

    I can now set to rebuilding the car (Once Stagea Project is finished!)

    Not too looked at the damage too much yet, but the rear wheel is buckled, and pointing the wrong way. Its shifted over the boot lid, bumper and broken both rear lights !
