I’m just waiting on the call I strongly suggest will say that the tree that fell on GUD KITY, my Radiance Pearl ‘06 VDP, totaled the beast. It also hit my Prius to the tune of $3700, but the Prius is fixable.
I’m going to go over to the XK/XK8/XKR lists for a little education before deciding whether to get another sedan or live a little in my old age and get my only ragtop.
Presuming the car is totaled, at least I don’t have to spend money replacing the radiator or having the transmission filter/pan/fluid changed. What truly distresses me is I have maintained the VDP meticulously. 16 years of age, 86K miles. Just getting broken in! It needed front/rear glass, one side window, R-side mirror knocked off, and scratches, dents, creases on roof and six body panels.
Cheers to all.
