Never trade the thrills of living for the security of existence.
2011 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic CVO – October 21, 2010 to October 19, 2012
It is with great sadness that we announce the demise of an inhabitant of The Car Guys garage, Harley Davidson.
Harley went for a short ride on the morning of Friday, July 13, 2012. Apparently neither the rider nor bike thought about the consequences of venturing out on such an unlucky day. A Perfect Storm of events resulted in both of them being in the ditch.
Harley had many broken and bent bits and it was eventually decided by the Insurance Doctor that Harley was not a candidate for restorative surgery. This was because the cost to repair Harley was likely going to be more than it was worth on the resale market. Harley will, however become an ‘organ’ donor, and it is our hope that many of Harley’s parts will breath new life into bikes that are in need of a transplant.
The Car Guy was more fortunate. He had many broken and bent bits too, but the People Doctors don’t consult a resale blue book before they decide if a patient is worth saving. The Car Guy has passed his 3 month post accident check-ups with flying colours, and he is well on the way to being just like before. Well, not exactly like before because the brain injury has altered his personality a bit, but in a good way.
I get attached to our vehicles. They each seem to have a personality. This is the story of a car called Wendy. It is a story about breast cancer too: 1980 Corvette
