Matthew almost got my mark viii

Saturday we got 14" of rain from hurricane Matthew. I ended with an average of about a foot of water in my yard. A tree fell and just brushed the Mark VIII. We lost power for a day and a half and the phone is still out.

Any water damage Don?

The house is fine. All of the cars ended up with wet carpet on the floor. So we have been drying them out. I'm planning to extend the side of the existing car port to cover the Lincoln.

Thank you much. Sadly I went to the Mid Atlantic MN12 site just in time to see it is closing. I missed so much in the 4 years it took to fix the Mark VIII. I really liked that site for the way they let Thunderbirds, Cougars, and Mark VIII on thier fastest cars list.

Don,

There's 2 stickies in the Racing Forum here for fast cars list.

Oops, disregard! These are for MN-12s only!
