I will contact the Oklahoma Department of Transportation to get an actual location of where the repaving crew was on July 29.
Good grief, man...

I read everything and was like, "could it really be that bad?" Then I looked down at the pix. HOLY CRAP that's horrible...

I wouldn't ever want to have to try to clean all of that.

Yeah...comprehensive coverage would be the only way to go. I can't believe they left the roads like that... I feel they should be responsible for those damages. NOT YOU nor your insurance.

Well, I got some good news today from my insurance carrier.

They sent me their "incident investigation" letter and made a final determination that the damage caused to my car was "100%" not my fault.

Also, it was finally determined that the damage is indeed a "Comprehensive Loss" (they earlier determined that it would be a collision loss).

Because my deductible is relatively low, they will not attempt to recover damages from the State of Oklahoma.

So, I will only pay $300.00 for a complete paint job, polished wheel refurbishing and tar removal from the undercarriage.

You got off easy. I blew up my engine on the very first pass on Friday morning.

Glad it worked out for you. A construction barrel blew in front of my car on the way to Indy this year, cracked my front bumper and almost pulled the front GFX off, so I know how you're feeling.

I hope to get "in progress" pictures after I take the car in to the paint shop, which won't happen until at least mid-September.

The paint shop still has to look over the estimate from the insurance adjuster. I hope to hear from them later this week.

This is great news! I am so glad the car will be repaired. It was so great to see you again and give you a proper welcome to Indy after that grueling trip. We will met again in Texas, this time, I bet your car is spotless and ready for the show.

Keep us posted. I have never ever seen a car with that much tar damage in my life, and hope I never do again. The Camaro took a pounding, yet still got you to your destination(s) and back home. Car is built like a tank!

That's insane. I would have not had any fun at the fest if my car had looked like that. Your a real trooper man. Best of luck getting that repaired.

Glad your getting this covered as a comp claim, not collision. The fact that
your company even debated this is amazing imo. Good luck with the repairs.

I'll be looking to see if there are any shops in the San Diego area that clean vehicles in this manner.

Vance,

The pleasure of meeting you was mine....

I know you were upset at first, but Im glad to see the situation didn't get the best of you, (great Character attribute) and that you enjoyed the Fest...

I didn't have my car there but still had a blast... Yes, the cars are the focal point, but they are a starting point for the people, the friends we have never seen other than a picture on the forum's, or the replys to posts...

The fest lets us put a name to a face, and finally get to see people and interact with them without the limitations of a few electrons...

Again, the pleasure was mine and I look forward to seeing you in Texas..

Take Care Brother...

Robert

I'm too busy at work and haven't had a chance to get it over to the shop.

Hopefully I can get to the shop within the next 2 weeks.
