    Body work is done, just needs to be painted. Since they're going to be blending anyway, I may have them take care of a ding on the trunk lid, two tiny ones on the rear door, and a tiny nick on the drivers door molding.

    The first two pics are the new ones. cadillacforums wouldn't accept the image urls for some reason?

    Vigors are good looking cars. Very nice, dude. I hope it gets all spruced back up.

    Re: Thank you neighbor

    Ahh neighbors. When I first moved back into my parents house, "Elizabeth," my all white '75 Superior Sideloader was in the driveway while I cleaned out the garage. The town inspector, cops, and zoning officer all descended on my house that afternoon! I was told how I was "frightening the children", harboring an "abandoned vehicle" (even though it was plated, registered and insured) and parking a commercial vehicle in a residential zone (no commercial or funeral plates on it though).

    My attorney sent them scurrying away (still cost me $500 bucks but worth it) and now when the offending neighbor looks for a halloween prop, I send her elsewhere.

    See, you're lucky. I park my Superior in the driveway (I have a very adequately sized driveway) and have had two people in the past (Or the same person twice) pull into my driveway and smash the entire driver's side rear quarter in.

    ray had told me you had a heavy accent, so why you picked up the phone and you did not have a heavy accent, I was like WTF Ray, he's not that hard to understand. You also seemed a bit pissed or confused (I'm not sure which) when I called because you thought I was someone else.

    While I am used to unknown numbers, I rarely get them on that line. When I do, I have learned to wade in lightly. Then I spent fifteen minutes wondering "Where did he even GET that number?"

    I don't see myself as hard to understand, but sometimes I try really hard to water it down (Still can't pass for Floridian) It's a dense accent and my unusual vocabulary probably makes it a tad difficult at time, but I believe people can usually understand me...I think. When all else fails, speak with your mouth and hands at once.

    By the by Kevin, PM/text/Facebook me your mailing address. I don't really see any reason in charging you for that distribution panel, because I'm certainly not using it anyhow, so I can send it when I get the chance.

    The Irish are still way easier than the Highlanders to understand. Scots are BY FAR the worst butcher of the English language. Well except maybe for the Gullah.

    Learned English from a Scottish woman. Never had a problem understanding them

    A key point is learning the dialect, the way words are used and the slang. Because it can vary so much from one place to another, even if you understood the word, the sentence may have meant nothing to you. I recall having to translate Sting's friend for him on The Face Books.

    Yeah, well when it's not that it has always been vandalism and burglary of a a conveyance caused by shall we say "disagreements" with a select group of locals.

    Still missing hearse-specific trim.

    Re: Thank you neighbor

    Got the car back today, looks fantastic!

    The site wont accept the other 4 image urls, but take a look here:

    http://s1130.photobucket.com/albums/...cabbage/Vigor/


    The first 5 pics are after the repairs. All the lines are PERFECT, ZERO flaws in the paint. I had their paintless dent removal guy take care of a few dings in the rear door and trailing edge of the trunk lid, and his work is PHENOMENAL! There's not a trace they were ever there. Car was washed, waxed, tires shined and interior vacuumed before I got there.

    I've used this shop more than a hand full of times over the past 5 or so years or so, recommend them to everyone, and they've NEVER disappointed......and I'm PICKY. I know there aren't many of us here from Mass, But for whoever's interested, the shop is 1st Class Auto Body on Condor street in East Boston.

    Glad you got your ride fixed. I unfortunately know the wrecked car feeling, but I also know the "Oh boy I just got it back from the shop and they did a great job and I'm so glad to have my car back" feeling You must be a tall dude! Your driver seat looks like it's in the same position as mine

    I've had too many cars wrecked by careless people, most never got fixed. Not because they were badly damaged, but because I happen to like older vehicles better, and even though they were immaculate, they weren't worth enough to the insurance company. I'm glad this one made it.

    I'm 6' even, mostly torso. My head's about 1/4" from the ceiling in the Acura
