    :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: took my 79 z to the local tranny shop for some adjustments. booked the car in a week ago. nobody phoned to say it was done. went for supper with my wife, after supper i thought that we had better go check on the car. i thought to myself surely it must be inside because they are closed on weekends,no. it was in the same spot but with one small difference, a full sized garbage container ( dumpster ) had been slammed up against the passenger door leaving a once dent free panel looking like " cottage cheese".
    after talking myself out of rolling the dumpster through there glass front ( wife ), i went home and got my camera. pics taken. car still sitting there, no spare keys to bring it home and park it in the dry garage ( monsoon weather at the moment). so there the car sits until monday. checking again today to make sure it has not been stolen. just spent $2000.00 on wheels and tires and $7000.00 on a new crate motor. hope all is still intact.

    i will eventually be laughing about this, at least that's what my wife says.

    This is why no one works on my car. I will let it sit dead before allowing someone to touch it. These kinds of stories make me ill. :mad: :mad:

    Sorry to hear about it man.

    I wouldn't let them know you saw it to see how they handle the situation. I'd call them on Monday to "see how things are going" and see if they mention it on the phone or not. Then if they don't say anything show up at the shop and go off on them!

    I would go straight to the owner with pic's and say nothing to anyone else but the owner! I work at Ford and if you complain to the owner about anything they ALL kiss your ass. Since you have a BEYOND a good reason I would take the pics to the owner and say nothing to the guy's there. Did not care about ur car when u 1st brought it won't care after u scream either. Just my .02. Real sorry to hear about the car.

    Sorry to hear that...sux big time. I hope you come out of the situation whole.

    I'm like Doug on this. I dont like anyone working on my car but me. I'm even critical of myself sometimes.
