...the car slid sideways and pitched in a way where the left front tire just stuck in the sand and flipped the back end of the car right over. Luckily everyone was ok. The car sufferred some damage, but can be fixed.

Sunday morning they managed to get the roof back to almost normal for now. I couldn't beleive how straight they were able to get it! They just used a bottle jack and some wood and look...

Don't worry everybody, he's gonna fix it right though. That was only a temporary fix to be able to go cruise around a little bit.
JJ, sorry about the rail. That really sucks, but like we said before- cars can be fixed or replaced and people can't. I am glad you and everyone was okay.

Yep, both his kids were in the back seats. Luckily they were ok and took it pretty well.

So now I need a good fabricator and some new powdercoat. Anyone know of a good place in town? I also need a new trunk/wing built. Glad to see it was built well enough to protect us.
I will definately add B pillars since I will have to re-powdercoat anyway. Thanks all.

sick sand travel.. they do mini's but im sure they are more than capable of taking care of ya.. :D
Josey can definitely handle it, but he is extremely busy right now. Give him a try though.

Give Kevin Bunderson a call, that should be a piece of cake for him.
I take it your new car is not chromolly? Pretty SCAREY cage damage! I rolled my last car
doing a photo shoot with Michael Sommers from Sandsports Magazine, I also had no B pillars, but suffered very little damage to the (chromolly)cage! If it is mild steel, and you have children, you may also consider cross bracing the roof?
Take care dude! Safety First!

They are tough , both of them have been going to Dumont sice they were only a month old. They always rode in Grandpas Tatum Sand Demon buggy. So pretty much they have sand in their blood. They are great!
Those kids are "tough like beef jerky"(qouted from Hella Paul) gives new meaning to takes a lickin and keeps on tickin...
