    Despite the car having been off the road for a wile due to much needed repair, A lot of it to the roof as it where, this was the last thing I wanted to see uppon getting home from work this morning.

    This is just one of many downed trees in the city due to the remnants, god I am glad I don't live down where it hit at full streingth.

    Suprisingly the car came threw it with out a scratch....that was not alredy there to beginwith anyways....SWEET

    Crazy, I didn't think Ike made it all the way up to you. I hope you are ok and nothing major, other than the tree on your car, happened.

    Did that car even run? It looks like it sat there for a while.

    Funny.... my daughter worked for an arborist and she JUST told me last week that these mapels are nicknamed "car-crushers."

    Nothing more than wind remnants here but still some forceful wind compared to what we are used to.

    Battery was stolen some time ago so no, even then the motor was slated to be replaced because I did not trust the one who rebuilt it under it's previous owner so I didn't care.

    That's the car I had in high school. Boy I'd have liked to crush it with a tree!

    As much as I want to save that car, at this point in it's life I don't think I would have shead a tear. There is a lot of work into it all redy, it was totaled when I got it from a few years of abusive teenager driving habits, but I just don't have the time to pour into it any more and since my garadge roof collapsed I can't keep a parts car around long enough to get everything I need. Had it actually been crushed I might have actually had a sufficient reason to send it to the salvage yard.


    Not much progress has been made in the last couple years huh
