SOME GOOD NEWS...
Now that insurance gave me $7,000...I'm having a friend locate, and install my motor. After that I have a guy waiting to fix my door dent. Then, I'm having the mirror replaced. After that, I plan to buy new tires for the 24's, an E&G grille, and possibly even look at 26's. Once that's all done, save whatever's left :D

Can't wait for her to look like this...

What kind of replies are you looking for. In your other threads we commented on how nice the truck looks, and that we are sorry that your engine blew. This thread is pretty much a combo of those two.

I wasn't trying to make it seem like a "childish display of materialism"

Which gets me thinking, why did you respond if you think its a childish display and that no self-respecting adult should reply? :hmm:

Do you respect yourself?

Stock foglights, and I haven't lowered it any...yet

Still waiting for the stupid insurance to send the damn check! :(

And I'm also trying to get over this cold. Coughing the past few days, my ear pains are almost gone, but now my chest is starting to hurt from coughing so much :(

10-05-05, 10:39 AM
Good News :D

Talked with friends shop, and they agreed to swap in my new motor.

Now it's time to call the insurance company and have them write a check to me & the shop so we can finally get this motor in there :D :D

Giving the shop credit card # today so we can get that motor ordered before the check comes in. Hope this all gets done quickly, I miss driving her :(

Wait ... does this mean that the dealership's flood insurance is going to total the truck? Do you get to keep the 7k check that you received from ur insurance already? ... 06 w/26" and screens everywhere. That's what I would do.

Darn... sorry about the loss. Insurance companies must be hurting bad over there.

Alexs EXT
10-26-05, 07:25 PM
I have no clue how the insurance is gonna sort this out.
All I know is, I want my money :D so i can pay off the truck, and then locate myself a titanium silver E36 M3 considering im more into sports cars and not really into trucks http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/images/icons/icon11.gif

10-26-05, 08:02 PM
wny an E36 and not an E46? don't get me wrong, i love E36's, but it seems you'd have enough money for an E46.

don't forget i want your engine covers if you're allowed to take anything off your truck (assuming it is totaled).

Oops, I meant the E46 http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/images/icons/icon11.gif, I got the chassis code or whatever confused with my fav, the E39 M5 :D

Basically a timeline of my truck...
- Got some 24's
- Girlfriend hit a gate and broke my mirror & dented the door
- Popped 2 tires
- Blew my motor during hurricane Katrina
- Truck got flooded during hurricane Wilma while sitting at dealer
- Insurance claims adjuster en route....again

Are you selling your head rest screens and 24's?

Alexs EXT
10-28-05, 09:54 PM

I don't want to sell the screens, because I left one in one of my other cars that got flooded and I'm not sure if it'll work.

And as for the 24's, I'm gonna put all new tires on them and put all new plastic pieces on the wheels and then sell them :D

Whats wrong with the old tires? They're Kumho's right? I'll buy them off you if you're getting rid of them and they're decent.

Alexs EXT
10-30-05, 01:43 AM
Yep, they're Kumho's, but 1 or 2 have nails but still hold air......another has gash in the sidewall but its not all the way through, so it still holds air but im not sure for how long......and the last, has just a small leak because it wasnt set right on the rim.

I've never mounted them because the guy I got them from cant find his tools to get the lug nuts off his truck, but I'll probably just get new ones anyway...



and I was thinking, should I buy a titanium silver E46 coupe? OR buy a regular-body style escalade since I do kinda miss my truck now :D

Alexs EXT
10-30-05, 10:47 PM
some pics. these make me sad :(

Motor had just been ordered, and almost on its way down, I had my hopes up to get back into driving the truck, and then the storm comes and wipes her away from me...for good.

...and here's a small pic until I scan the newspaper front page, but this is the dealership. Now, there is supposed to be a 10-ft wide sidewalk on the left of the palm trees, then a 5-lane wide road, a big parking lot, and a 2 story dealership here...

10-30-05, 10:50 PM
So I've been thinking...another Escalade? or possibly my dream car, a titanium silver E39 BMW M5. Screw the thoughts about an E46 M3 when for the same price I can't get a year or two older M5 which is what I love anyway! :D
