Tornado took out my Defender

So we got hit by a tornado in Denton, TX yesterday and my 110 was crushed. It's a sad day

Damn! That's bad luck. Hopefully you get what you need from insurance to replace it.

PLEASE update us on how the insurance claim goes. I've been nervous since day one that my insurance company would give me the lowest blue book value, declare it totaled, and stick me with a loss and a salvaged title.
Hopefully you'll be able to rebuild bigger and better.

Damn that makes me sick. I am glad no one was in or around it! Hopefully another one will be in your future, all the best with this situation.

Truly dreadful. So sorry to see that. Hope you get a good insurance payout and can rebuild back even better than before. Maybe the chassis is still OK?

Listen, a salvage title is like a circumcision. It hurts like a bitch the first time, but then you never have to worry about it again and can focus on just having fun. Disco Disco!

Very sorry to see/ hear this.

As others have said, most important is that you and your family are safe.

Then again, as most here would agree, our Defenders are an extension of our families.

The bright side here is that you get to start a new Defender project.
