California meets low post in a wet Monaco.

Was very wet the other night.
And my wife had a big stop against a low slung post the damage is all the way back to the engine block.
She is OK the car not sure.... time to order a T I think.

That's sad! But the most important thing is, that your wife is OK and the car can be repaired!

Paul, these things happen, unfortunately. Hurts to hear and see that.

Glad to hear that passenger(s) were okay. Modern cars can provide much protections.

Sure looks like you must find a replacement Cal T now !

Sorry to hear of your damaged Cali. Glad your wife is ok but that's one heck of a risky way for her to to upgrade to a T. Possibly a bit of French-Italian collaboration on the bag match interior spec is in order.

Apparently some suitable styles can be found on this site.

Best of luck guys,

But also expensive

Paul, okay...all is well then. Cannot blame her for that, living in Monaco,...but Hermes (?)...she sure knows what is best for her.

Seriously, that would be a splendid space for herself to be enveloped in Hermes, a lady with exquisite taste.

Paul- Smart girl. Bend the one she has and get a new one matching her Hermes. Glad she was ok. Did the airbag deploy?

My compliments to her dispositions.

Paul, indeed so. Except in my case, it may very well be always instead of sometimes...

That's a worry about the airbags not deploying! That's a reliability issue that I think is just unacceptable. Luckily your wife wasn't hurt.

My wife Lina has never cared less about car interiors.....Until I just told her of your future Hermes one....Now she is very interested.

I think she is picturing detachable Birkin bags instead of a glovebox. Please post pics when your car is finished.

Sounds great!

David.

California meets low post in a wet Monaco.

Cars can be replaced, wives with good taste that put up with us, not so easily Paul.

Sorry for the car, but glad your wife is okay.

Very sorry to see that, but I'm glad your wife is alright, Habsy. I would look into the airbag fault. You may find some information that can help others in the future.

Any further info regarding the airbag failure?

Also has anyone driven the Cali T yet?

Airbag they say possibly as it did not hit sensors,!
She is good, car finished, new t on order for May delivery
The t drives like a differt car to the original Cali we had.
Very good car IMO

Gentle sex, Paul? Here's the latest:



Women Make Better Assassins!


The Central Intelligence Agency had an opening for an assassin. The Agency sifted through hundreds of exceptional applications and resumes, did all the background checks, interviews and testing and it came down to three final applicants, two men and a woman. The three then had to undergo one final test. The CIA managers took the first man into a room at the far end of which was a large metal door, handed him a short barrel Colt Python revolver and said: "We need to know that when you are given instructions you will follow them to the letter, implicitly and without hesitation or remorse, no matter what the circumstances. Behind that door, inside the room your wife is sitting in a chair. Kill her.


The man said "You can't be serious. I understand your need to put me to the test but you can't possibly expect me to kill my wife". The handler said, "Then it's clear you're not our guy. Go get your wife, you can both leave."


They went through the same drill with the second candidate. He took the Python and went into the room. All was quiet for only a few minutes; then the second man​ emerged with tears in his eyes, saying: "I tried, I really tried, but I just can't kill my wife."


One of the agents said to the second fellow, "Sorry, but you don't have what it takes, so you're free to take your wife and go home​"​


Finally, it was the woman's turn. She got the same instructions: to enter the room and kill her husband. She hesitated for a moment, then took the Python and entered the room. In rapid succession six shot rang out, then screaming, crashing, and banging on the walls. Then all was quiet. The door opened slowly and the woman candidate stood there, clothing torn, rumpled and bloody, sweat smearing her face. Catching her breath, she finally said:


"The gun was loaded with blanks; I had to kill him with the chair​."​
