Re: new to the group
one side of the road was salted, so i could drive carefull,
a man in front of me hit the brakes, i reacted and moved one lane, it
was one sheet of ice,
got in a spin, the shoulder was soft, one wheel dug in deep en there i
no seatbelts, battery box lid was loose, nearly got hit by it, had
hub's in the back, with the drumbrakes on them, they went trough the
soft top and i was unharmed ( i know i was lucky)
the police came, asked me questions like "how fast where you driving" i
told him i was looking at the road, not on the speedo.
i did not dare telling him the cable broke down on me.
the asked what they could do for me,
i asked them, you have got a camera? would you mind to take some
pictures for me?
so he did, and he e-maild them to me.
i drove on mud's maybe that is bad and i should have other tire's
fitted for legal purposes....
that is why i crashed on the shoulder, not to crash in the back of some
the man who hit the brakes, i did not know who he was, he drove away,
not looking if i was alright.
i got my poor 88LW back on the wheels,
and the towtruck man wanted to get me home, and smiled when i told him
i was going to drive home on my own.
mirror, mirror arm, wing got dented, arches broke, and the body part
behind the door is folded around the outrigger.and the softtop is
maybe the engine got some damage aswel,
it was fitted with a 2.5Normal / Asfyxiated, and at the day we left for
billings, a bearing of the drife shaft failed.

fit a restored (did it myself) 2.5 td,
custom build a exaust (even the part on the turbo shell...it's a lhd so
the steering arm is in the way)
