Wow thats one hell of a hit good to see that you walked away from that. What a testament to how well the Bonnevilles are built.
I always liked the way you pushed the envelope for the NA'*
your car will be missed
take your time and rest up every thing will work out in the end.

Ouch. ya really tagged that pole good. Well, consider yourself fortunate to still be amongst the living and heal up. While I haven't trashed a vehicle lately..been about 20 years since my last crash and burn, **** happens. Ya got the right plan going, strip the wreck for anything useable and go look for another Bonneville to play with.

(No recriminations for not having collision coverage. I pretty much do the same on mine. Figuring if I screw up and waste the car, that'* my own fault and I eat the damage. Cars as old as ours aren't really worth spending the extra money to the insurace company.)

BTW, ya might want to throw a box worth of baking soda up into the front fender area and hose it out well. Somewhere up there was a battery that'* prolly dumped it'* acid all over the place. Might as well neutralize it before it wrecks anything that otherwise was salvageable.

Good Luck and Get Well

Suprizingly the battery looks fine and I didn't see it leaking anything. Everything electronic still works too, poppers, trunk, radio. Crazy.
Thanks agian everybody for everything.
