^Uh-Oh.
Well, that's what insurance is for?

I met Doug Sandler at a Beach Cities meet -- one of his episodes in particular goes into some detail about this sort of thing:

Yeah, just not sure if insurance covers stupidity. I knew it was a bad idea as soon as I turned around. I guess I'll call hagerty tomorrow and see what they say. Worst case I'll just fix it, keep it and turn it into a car I'll enjoy more.














I'm a jackass.

Spoke with Hagerty. They've been great so far. I feel like less of an idiot now, but still mad at myself. Got a list of recommended body shops from Hagerty and one of the top names is also highly recommended by some of my other car club buddies. Just need to send off some pics and schedule an appointment at the body shop.

The Mustang's in the body shop now. Am really impressed with Hagerty so far. The whole process has been really simple. Hope to get it back soon. I've just about completely decided not to sell it now. My '67 f100 project is about done and I've already got some items on the wish list for the Mustang if I do keep it. I'm at least going to wait out the winter before I pull the trigger on whether or not it goes back up for sale.

I actually got it out to just drive it on a nice day last week and just didn't have the joy in it I used to have in the Bullitt. The Bullitt was a blast to drive, but I also used it as a daily and had a lot of seat time and a LOT of myself in that car. I miss it. More importantly I miss the man pedal. I've found several replacements online but need to get rid of the 64.5 first. What is the best way to sell a classic? I've tried craigslist, but go no response except your typical scammers. I want to get my car out to serious buyers. It's a nice car and deserves to be enjoyed.

For those of you that have bought/sold classics, what would you recommend as the best way to sell?
Car shows!

Sorry to hear about your "moment" with it. Good to hear insurance is taking care of it. I wouldn't blame you either way for keeping it or selling it. Sounds like a good idea to wait it out through the winter to decide. It's much harder to regret selling it if it's still in the garage.
