Fender Breaking News. So Many Headlines Possible
There are so many ways to spin this. Troy Goes Wheel Topless To FLA? Troy In Fender Bender In Route to FLA. Troy seen at side of road fighting with his trailer. Troy takes out frustration on his fender. New Woody Boater T shirt gives Troy Super Powers. Anyway, we got this report in from Troy on his slow trip to Florida.
“I have issues”!
We had an incident on Wednesday after leaving the railway. Not a Harrison level incident, but as we were leaving the Hampton Roads Tunnel on Rt 64 on our way into Virginia Beach, Sandi noticed the front fender on our starboard side was flapping in the wind and rubbing on the tire. We pulled over and had to break off the fender. We are now running fenderless in that position.
Thanks again to Troy for helping us all understand that this crap is all part of it all. The good news is the fender didnt fly off on the highway and impale some old couple going 30 in the fast lane. Oh wait. Maybe not.
Woohooo, just a couple weeks now, and I will be basking in old used fryer oil and surrounded by fellow idiots all trying to figure out how to be with actual people again.
Troy’s favorite photo of a fender
Very nice fender!!!
That’s nothing a little duct tape can’t fix.
He broke It off? Embarrassed to pull out those Craftsman tools and save it?
Couldn’t afford a set of Snap On’s to bring with him, I can relate. Oh, he’s going to catch hell on this one. But he can take it. I’ll loan you my mechanic helper if you need assistance.
Your mechanic helper needs to learn where the engine is on a VW Bug, but I don’t suspect that you hired her for her brains.
Looks to me as if she is re-attaching the fender… 😉
I’m not sure were ready to talk to people yet…Is the woody boater app working so we can ease our way in by txting each other first?
Here is a helper Troy. Would you turn down the help if the wrench was a Snap-On. I feel your pain. I had the same thing happen to me one time. Except it was night and it ruined the tire. Safe travels.👍
“Wasn’t a Snap-On.” Damn auto correct.
Got it Matt…………………..thanks
You forgot to use this pic that was over in the restroom at Bro’s Fish Tacos in Virginia Beach.
Oh and yes we are in Florida now!
