This page is dedicated specifically to the saga of Tom Adams' Diplomats and other M Bodies, and will be updated from time to time as I receive new photos.
|Tom's crushed 1984 Diplomat. Reports concerning the restoration of this car periodically appear in the Forum and Registry sections.|
|Here is a photo of the 360 in Tom's Diplomat.
This photo was taken minutes before the collision that put his car in the
repair shop where the tree fell on it during a storm, as shown above.
This Diplomat continues its comeback bid.
|Some photos of the rear quarter panel removed during the repair work.|
|This and the next seven photos are the latest
updates on the repair progress, submitted October 11, 1999. Included
are Tom's descriptions.
Rear quarter panel on, trunk deck on.
|Rear Quarter panel on, no trunk deck yet, my 86 is in background.|

|Tom sent in six new photos of his M Body
family (including his newest addition - a 1980 Diplomat S-Type 2 Door),
and included the following notes on the images:
Just wanted to shoot you a couple of pic's of the 80, and a couple of others too. Wanted to do it sooner, but work has been killing me in hours lately.
Here is the description (in order of appearance) of each in brief:
#1 and 2 are in front of the hotel the Sunday morning after picking it up from Dan in PA.
#3 is the 84 Delaware car and the 88 GF.
#4 is just getting started pulling the 318 out of the 80, Roy on left Rich on right.
#5 engine is out.
#6 is a shot of the 84 Delaware just 10 minutes after picking up from Bob in PA.
