I have some bad news...all of you know my dad James Manley...he posts as Blubird...his son (my brother) was driving the T-bird last night and lost control of the car and he hit a tree dead on and spun the car around doing more damage. He is ok but the car is totaled...for those of you who know us and have seen this car, you know it was one of a kind.

I will be getting pics of the car of what it looks like now but here are some pics of it before the wreck.

After

cobra upper/Lower intake
145 speedo

there is no way to repair the car...not only did the impact destroy the front end but it also spun the car around to hit the side and twisted the body...with the driver side door closed, i can still put my hand between the top of the door and the roofline...the driver side lower control arm is broken...and it is just beyond repair...we arre considering selling the car with most of the parts as a whole to someone who wants a parts car with a perfect motor and a built racing transmission with less than 5000 miles on it...

Dangit!!!

Hey Chris, Glad to hear your brother was ok... bet he was shaken up though...

That was definitely one of the finest 91's I've ever seen...

I don't think I would have wanted to come home after that... Bet your dad is just sick about it... especially since it's been in the family for so long.
