I don't know how anyone is expected to be able to work on these cars.

Normally when someone here buys business insurance, you buy it as a package. I don't know of any company offering it with more then $1million in liability.

That was more then a million dollar loss. I don't think I'd even sit in it.

Plus the rate should be around 2% of the replacement value. I couldn't even afford to insure it at $30,000, a year.

Depending on the Insurance Company, he might be lucky to get out of it what he paid for it.

IMO, that is what they are going to offer him, minus the salvage.

Personally, I'd press Ford on the liability on this. The problem is going to be if ANYONE touched that car since it left Ford INCLUDING a Ford dealer.

The term "cause to effect" is going to get thrown around there. I doubt the Ford dealer would have enough liability on that as well.

The owner definitely NEEDS to get a real lawyer on this one. Louis Tulley is not going to cut it.

  We'll be watching that one get "restored" on an episode of Gas Monkey......
