    Hopefully the valves were adjusted. Damn hemis tear themselves apart if they arent

    Leave the exterior like it is. No one will ever attempt to jack it. :lol:

    Might want to put a headlight on the side where both are missing. Maybe a turn signal over there too.

    Does not appear to have enough damage to be another car involved or hitting a pedestrian. Appears to be a rather low speed punch into a pole. A slide on icy road or something similar I'd guess.

    Low speed wreck on st Simon's. Also she only had liability so insurance cant total what they didn't pay out on

    There is nothing to adjust. Those older hemis can have problems with valve springs and seats, but they aren't nearly as bad as the newer models. The lifters go bad in the newer ones and will eat the camshaft if you don't catch it soon enough.

    Nothing like a good truck that you don't have to worry about messing up!
