    Wow! looks like the guy lost his motorcycle also.
     
  3. I saw it on Channel 5 News this morning.
    An ugly scene.
    I'm glad that everyone involved is unharmed, amazing though.

  4. Wow! Looks like the chassis/drivetrain will still be usable. Glad no one was hurt!

    Wow! Glad nobody got hurt. Sure would be interesting to know how that accident really took place, car must have been really moving along. I'm sure there will be details on the car and bike when I get home tonight.
     
  8. oof. lucky guy, unlucky car!!

    looks like the driver didn't know how to paahk the caah in the yaahd. :D
     
  9. Anyone in the market for a slightly damaged Chrysler Sebring ragtop?? Maybe a project hotrod?

    Everyone involved is very fortunate to be alive and uninjured...cars can be replaced, and houses can be fixed.

    Says he thinks he blacked out and something to do with having a new car. Must have been some pretty heavy duty buyer's remorse. Either that or the new car smell has something extra special in it these days.

    At least he said he was sorry.

    Man what a shame. Of all the cars to run into, what a loss and disappointment for the owner or the roadster. Thankfully no one was hurt.

    That would ruin your day, thought the owner took it a lot better than I would have.

    l bet the insurance claim is gonna give that driver's agent a stroke when they see how much it is to replace that hot rod.

    if it is totalled:rolleyes: buy it back for salvage, at least that way you would have some parts to sell or put on the "new" rod. l hope he finds a real nice rod to replace the crushed one.

    Later:cool:

    I don't understand how these things can happen. It had to be an older/handicapped person or something.

    I'd kind of like to see the insurance bill for this wreck too. The bike is a Harley Softail, not worth what they were 5 years ago, but still not cheap.

    Kids don't generally smash the back of their cars that far into things, but it's definitely a possibility. :D

    You never saw some of the stuff I did when I was a little younger (Here, hold my beer and watch this!!).
    But actually I was kinda being a smart ass, something that's kinda hard to outgrow. Sorry 'bout that.
    Better get some work done.
    Later,

    That happened 5 min from my house. I just drove by there on Friday and saw that rod. The guy always has rods, bikes, Musclecars there, most for sale. Glad nobody got hurt.
