Unfortunately not looking good, didn't see that a tree got into the cab in the first set of pictures.

Re: Wrapped my truck around a tree today...damn it!

Yep, pretty bad. Cab was already very rusty and rough, though. At least I think the big back window and that panel is OK. Radiator got into the fan and all the coolant leaked out, so I'll have to do something about that. But the running gear and frame seem fine. At least it wasn't a bunch of nice sheet metal that got ruined. Glad I put off replacing everything!

To add insult to injury, someone broke into it about three hours after I crashed (Friday evening/night). They stole a fairly nice camera I forgot about in the moment that was in the glovebox they had to pry open, and they also stole tools and anything else they thought was of value out of the toolbox. They were out drinking and stealing from wrecked cars, as they quickly took an axe or something to the toolbox that wasn't even locked. Threw an empty "Bahama Mama" can out while they were there. This was in Dallas, GA on highway 61 in between Taylor's junkyard and Bigun's biscuits. The two worthless degenerates were seen driving a dark red 1990's Ford F150 shortbed with a manual transmission (the guy in the house down the road saw them and made a note of the manual trans/shifting). They probably hit other cars in the area. If anyone has any possible leads whatsoever, please let me know. Stealing from people who already just crashed their car and may also be injured is just not ok.

Oof! That hurts! Perhaps a moment of silence is in order? - having said that, glad you are ok.

Re: Wrapped my truck around a tree today...damn it!

Turns out the radiator for my '68 impala was narrow enough. I took the fan off, strapped the new radiator in, and pried/beat the fender off the tire. Back on the road! The crash damage is pretty severe, but at least I can still drive it for now. I'm going to try to drag my old '65 C10 out with it tomorrow and toss that back together to drive until I fix this one.
