No, no. I really shouldn’t. I can put up with Bill and Buzz’s scorn. But then there’s the wife to deal with.
The Ramblin’ Wreck is very much the latter, smashed on the left side with a roof to match. But Georgia Tech’s iconic 1930 Ford Model A may soon ramble again as former drivers and loyal sympathizers pledge its rescue.
It was not a pretty picture when the car broke free of trailer straps Friday on the way to Savannah for a wedding. Huge concerns about the cost and feasibility of repairs arose as estimates ran from $15,000 to $30,000.
Yet donations are flowing, and a unique reconstruction crew is forming.
Just don’t expect any pictures until it’s rebuilt. The Ramblin’ Reck Club, a group of 20 Tech students that cares for the car, won’t have that. They don’t care for the idea of “rabid rivals” —- to use a label found on Tech message boards —- using the photos deviously.
