Judy DiDonato - Cam Failure # 154

new 12/16/02

Tim - I cannot believe the timing of the article that hit our local paper yesterday about the filing of the lawsuit. My beautiful '96 SHO (Black) recently died on me.  The timing chain broke and the camshaft slipped destroying all the pistons and valves.  I am very disappointed and sad about losing this great car.  I do have 99,000 miles on it but it drove beautifully. It is not worth putting in a refurbished Jasper engine.  Because it is such a specialized engine, it would cost me $8900.

The car is currently at a US Auto garage with the front of the engine disassembled.  They advised not to consider a junkyard engine because all the connections to this specialized engine are so unique and complicated.

I am going to take a huge loss.  I am being offered $1100 from a guy who will sell its parts.  Without the engine failure, I believe the car was worth $7,200 with 99,000 miles.

My VIN # is 1FALP54NXTA285483.

I would like to be part of this class action lawsuit and collect something for my loss!!!

Please let me know what I need to do.  Thank you - Judy DiDonato
