    Small tornado passed through our neighborhood March 9th, first ever for us...Lots of damage in area, but minor compared to folks in the mainland I'm sure....Blew down a temp electric pole in front yard landing on Ranchero. Only needed to paint hood we made, and get license plate out of storage, oh well, little more work now....

    You get them more often than you think.
    A water spout is a small tornado.

    That hood looks amazing on that ranchero, just to say something positive.

    And a sand devil is a small desert tornado. Man, we are just full of useful knowledge around here.

    Around here they are called dirt devils as there is no sand.
    Some parts of town they are trash devils.

    Wow, it didn't break any glass, very lucky. Good luck getting her fixed up.

    You heartless dolt!
    That twister could have picked him up, bypassed Oz, and dumped him in some hell hole like Virginia!

    I had more damage in my yard after a thunderstorm knocked a 90' oak tree on my shed last spring,...is all I'm saying.

    No, I'm calling a crushed shed, tools, and lawn mower damage. The firewood is a bonus. It's red oak. Burns awesome.

    Yes, you're right, not much damage, especially compared to folks in mainland who go through devestating storms. We have good weather here, this was very uncommon, and small...do want to be sensitive to all the families going through tornado damage today....
    My thoughts were only towards a near completed restomod getting set back a little longer, no biggie. Seems this resto has been having weird problems the entire two years I been into it. Like the car just has issues on everything I touch! Needs to be blessed maybe? LOL
    Will be able to fix fender when we do hood anyway...hopefully I'll be driving it soon.

    Don't listen to Sean. His heart is two sizes too small. I am sympathetic to the damage you absorbed, and I hope all returns to normal soon. Nice looking ride, no doubt, and keep us posted on how the repair work goes.

    Hey Carl, what's up? Been doing pretty good here. I found a 71 that looks like a possible deal! Still may hold out for a 73 though.

    Well, why didn't you say so? By the power vested in me, by the World Christianship Ministries LLC, I bless thee Ranchero. Seriously, I can to that. Not only that, I just did.
