  • Wanted 1930-1931 Tudor Sedan or ?

    I recently purchased a 1930 Tudor and I was rear-end by someone on a cell phone this past Saturday, so I am in the market once again for an older restoration car to tour with,any leads on a car on the east coast would be appreciated.I have not decided yet to sell mine or keep it for parts yet so if anyone is interested in a project car just let me know .Thanks Mike Morton 910-787-3753

      Very sad good luck! I would keep it and restore the chassis. Then wait for a body to show up or build a speedster.

        That picture brought a tear to my eye, hope you are OK, the driver is the "crumple zone" in a Model A most times. I wouldn't give up on that car, most things can be repaired, I would just put it aside and work on it as time permitted (using insurance money if available), Model A's aren't made any more so using it for parts is a crime against humanity.

          Any pictures of the damage? They can be restored most times.

            Damn, I am so sorry to hear that. Make sure that you are in good shape and keep a good attitude. A new car will come your way in due time.

            Make sure to sue the pants off that idiot that hit you.

              I am sorry to see that. If it were me i think you would still see me crying on the side of the road.

              Then when I was done, I would take that cell phone and shove it up that guys carburetor so far that it would be speed dialing for the rest of the day.

                  Wow Mike I hope everyone that was in the car is doing ok. If I remember correctly you recently purchased that car after selling the other one of to fund the wedding. There are plenty of cars around so take your time in finding the right one.

                    I'm not a fan of law suites, but the law is so weak on distracted driving, that in this case I say GO FOR IT.
                    Meanwhile, let Brent restore it at the other guy's insurance expense.

                      I'm afraid this isn't going to be the last of these occurrences.

                      Just today I drove to a neighboring town, about 8 miles. I started counting the cars I met where people were looking down, more than likely texting or something. Two were holding their stupid phones high enough you could definitely see they were on the phone texting or whatever.

                      Of the 20 odd cars I met, 12 were distracted looking down at something more than likely one of those damn phones. .

                      I'd do as Tom suggested, take this car to a professional shop like Brent's and make the other guy's insurance pay for a complete rebuild. That car looked to be a pretty nice one. It needs re-built.

                      Just curious here, was the offending driver some 17-20 year old girl? They seem to be the worst. Although I'm seeing 'old' people like me in their 60's getting just as bad.

                        Unfortunately it all goes by the agreed value that was placed on the car. The other insurance won't pay more than that amount either. This is why I carry very high amounts even if the car is only worth a third of it. It's cheap so why not. If it's a policy without agreed value that is even worse

                          Two distracted driving bills are going nowhere, it was just announced on today's news for Minnesota.
                          Too bad, because distracted driving has killed a lot of people and caused a lot of accidents.
