Here are some shots of Pujo! apres trailer tumble. This is a tough car; we all expected a wadded up ball of metal to be inside the trailer, most certainly not an angry French Bulldog, ready to drive!
After breaking free of the tie downs, Pujo! appears to have impacted his roof against something solid. Trailer wall against ground? Even though the roof is deformed, and the door is pinned shut, the rollcage is not touching any metal it shouldn't.
A quarter window didn't survive, and a valuable piece of exterior trim was damaged.
The ride height is a bit funky in the rear. We'll need to see what's going on here, I'd hate to have the suspension let go during the race. Welding rod is cheap, right?
While Pujo! did not make it to ThunderHill, he did drive home. Sean reported that the car was a bit on the chilly side as he drove through the snow back to the Monkey House. You can see the missing back window (no it's not just clean) and the dangling right side mirror. We'll need to resolve the mirror - those are handy. I think I saw a couple busted off mirror housings on the express lanes entrance...
The trip from Olympia-ish back to the shop was the longest distance the car has traveled in years and it didn't blow up or catch on fire. We're hopeful that the damage sustained bouncing around the trailer like a mixing ball in a can of Krylon hasn't messed things up too much.
