I'll tell you what, I heard there were crazy storms in AZ recently that never happen. Then I saw pics of the tent on autoblog. I immediately flashed back to the Cowboys practice tent. I felt like this might happen...

I feel so terrible for people who had fully original cars. That stuff can never be fully replaced not to mention if they didnt have insurance.

I didn't even think about fully original cars. The parts were literally priceless

It's one of those things no one would have expected. Especially where they are located. It's hard to set blame on who's fault it was... those were some mighty high winds.

But yes, definatley sucks for those who had a car damaged.

Obviously so, they should have seen this coming whenever the winds started to pick up.
