The " old car " is a '39 Plymouth that Dave rodded himself. It's got big block chevy power and it's a really nice car. Between the damage in the back and the front end damage, it needs about $20K worth of work ( body and complete paint job ).
The dirt track car is an exact copy of the car he raced in the early 80s. The Plymouth got pushed into this car.
The bike you can see is a low mileage, previously restored '82 (?) GPZ 1100. The front end got twisted and the fairing got trashed. The frame may be bent up by the neck.
The bike you can't see was about the same vintage 750 Kawasaki with a big bore kit. This was a very low mileage original bike. It one got "punted" under a late 60s Toyota pick up he's rodding.
This all happened about a year ago and he's still trying to get fair value for the bikes. He finally settled with the insurance company for the damage to the street rod. Now he can finally get work done to that. He'll be lucky to find someone qualified to fix it and have it done by winter.
The drunk had state minimum insurance coverage and nothing to her name.
To say this is a mess for Dave would be an understatement. He's incured a serious monetary loss thru no fault of his own.
