Bummer, wrecked two 16" Pentas

Post by eric78 » Fri 09 Sep, 2016 3:20 pm

Was driving back from Canberra & part of my route was on a rutted dirt road, I encountered a very deep pothole that took up most of my side of the road, couldn't slow down to avoid it in time, buckled & cracked two wheels on one side.

Are you insured?
Life is a journey, with problems to solve, lessons to learn, but most of all, experiences to enjoy.

'83 W123 300D 325000km (Wife's car Josephine - sold).
'84 W123 300D replaced good OM617 912 with OM617 952 and enjoyed having good acceleration for the first time since first driving a 300D in 2002 - became engine and trans donor for 300CD Turbodiesel conversion. Now parted out.
'86 W124 300D sold (Wife's old car - sold )
'85 W123 300CD, 275 000km (Fatmobile) rebuilt turbodiesel from previous Fatmobile transplanted into 280CE (occasional tourer)
'99 W202 C250 Turbodiesel (my darling Wife's car - Sold)
'98 W202 C250 Turbodiesel (my car - Sold)
'06 Ssanyong Musso Crew Cab 2WD Ute (OM662 diesel and Auto Transmission)

Most insurances I've found won't cover non-factory wheel options anyway. I still have two good ones, I was going to sell them when I rebuilt the Lorinser RSKs I have but I guess I won't be selling them as a set now.
