I was thinking the same thing, I think that might not have been from a collision as it seems difficult to nearly rip the car in half without much panel damage. I wonder if it was swept away in a flood and got caught against something and the pressure of the flood bent it that way? Anyone know the back story?

Sure looks like it with all that mud and dirt. But I don't think all that foliage would remain there after a flood.

Unhappy

Holden Statesman/Caprice WH 99-03 Luxury Significantly better than average Average Nice.

It all depends on what you hit or what hits you. Sure I feel safe...but then again I have seen some pretty wierd accidents. I have seen a car fly over a median barrier and strike a car in the opposite direction at windscreen height. I have seen cars go under tractor trailers and sheer off roofs. Fall off bridges into water. Tree fall onto car and crush occupants. A low boy trailer with a loader backhoe on it broke free of a dump truck and crushed a car around a tree. (The front bumper was touching the rear bumper)
