Heres a car I've worked on in the past, my neighbor took these and sent them to me. owner had a little too much to drink and she went of the road, hit a pole and rolled it three times.

for a ~50mph crash she fared pretty well. looks beat up and bruised but no broken bones. :bowdown:








I'm picking the car up today, who needs parts?

no sympathy for any moron who drinks and hits the road. Glad she took herself out and not some one else.

Light poles do seem to make excellent drunk magnets. This one must have been really out of it though. Most pole bashers seem to always hit perfectly centered instead of offset like this one.

One of the heavy drinkers where I work got off at midnight and after getting wasted passed his exit on the highway trying to get home. Going on to the next exit he crossed over the cloverleaf and as he got on the entrance to the highway going back towards his home noticed some flashing yellow lights on the side of the road which he stopped behind. A moment later he noticed a bright light shining on his face and a voice behind it was saying "You can go around me if you want to. I am just writing a traffic ticket here but its OK for you to go around me."

And He Said:

"That OK officer, but I'll just wait until the light changes"

At least thats the story he told us after they let him out of jail.

What a mess. Looks like she got every single panel on the car.
I guess barrel rolling will do that. What year is it, 88? How many miles? Do you "know" the car?

I had straightened the front end out as best as possible last time she had an accident. took out the grille, both headlights, bent the hood and pushed the radiator etc into the fan where the belt cut though the coolant hose and almost killed it then.

Thats the grille from my 300D on it! at least I get it back in one piece.

Looks like the only virgin panel left on it is the ashtray.

Are you talking alcohol related "Prior similars" (as prosecutors say)!!!???

Hard to find sympathy for that....:mad:

John, when the bitter end is near for that 300 I may be interested in getting the jacking point areas cut out at all 4 corners. Assuming that they're rust free of course. Get out the SawzAll and have at it. My 88 260E has rust at all 4 jacking points and I'd like some patch pieces.

I come down 15/340 to visit family in Leesburg several times a year so pickup up is convenient.

The two mattresses on top of the car cracks me up.
My thoughts exactly. I am dying to know the story behind that. Two mattresses tied to the top of a vintage SLC filled with plywood, now sitting in a junkyard. That has to be an interesting tale.
