The T-Bird Takes One For The Mazda
Jun 26, 2010 | Views: 649
Filed under: 1961 Ford Thunderbird (White In Night Satin)
We had severe storms come through our area Saturday evening with some very strong winds that caved in our garage door. The Mazda was unscathed, but that's because the '61 Thunderbird next to it was a much longer car and served as a block for the Mazda, stopping the garage door from caving in any further.
But the T-Bird held up very well. The only damage is a slight, barely negligible dent by the taillight. It appears when the garage door hit the bumper, it was stopped from going any further. Other garage doors in the neighborhood, all on houses facing west like ours, were punched in much farther than ours.
And two large trees behind us were uprooted and knocked over.
The cost of replacing the garage door will be less than our deductible, so I'm doing some customizing to the budget. But the T-Bird has good, full coverage, so I don't anticipate that to be much of a problem. It's just a question of whether the dent can be knocked out of the original bumper.
Or since it is the original bumper with the original chrome still good and the dent is barely noticeable, maybe I should just leave it alone.
