Barn in Ct struck by lightning

The owner was a race car driver at a local track. I bet there were alot of cool antique cars, parts, memorabilia and other miscellaneous items that are now gone.

1995 LX 4.6 Stock for now.

I bet you could re-restore that 36 Ford. Of course w/ no money coming from an insurance co., that might be out of the budget.

Not to sound harsh, but who in their right mind does NOT insure their property??? I don't give a crap if most of the things I have are "irreplaceable", I still want to get the money so I could at least rebuild my house and try to salvage what I could.


These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.

you really hate to hear stuff like that but thats mother nature... everything happens for a reason

fordman... not everyone has the addition money to include insurance on there belongings. I only carry liability on my vehicles and i have no home owners. I believe home owners here in new orleans due to katrina is about 1/4 what i make in a year.
