Actually to me....its no surprise the air bags didn't go off,if you look the front rebar has no,or very little damage,and sustained no "hard impact",even the washer bottle is still attached,also even though the left front suspension is torn off,the upper rail is also pretty much damage free and took no hard hit.
Unless there is a lot of damage underneath we are not seeing,this would be a very nice rebuilder for someone.

I got dibs on the LSA, lol... but the more of these that get wrecked the more insurance will cost

a terminator Cobra is a prime example... a $35,000 car new that to insure would rival that of a $100,000 car, lol... a C5 Zo6 was MUCH cheaper to insure for example... my old turbo SS Cobalt was the same way, when I got rid of it and got the SS Camaro... my insurance did not change, from a $24,000 vehicle... to a $40,000 vehicle... because of insurance claims

Just because you bought a 580 horsepower pavement pounder, does not mean you have the driving ability of Richard Petty. When will some people learn? I suppose never...

Here's a 300 mile flood-car. Looks like it was underwater... Sad...
I guess this would be a good time to introduce myself. Im Jordan and I own that flooded white ZL1. Bought it from the insurance auctions back in December. Hurricane Sandy got the best of her, the car was flooded above the dash! We tore the car apart and replaced almost all the electronics with new parts from our local GM dealer. The car is 100 percent working order and still has the new car smell! Shes got about 350 miles on her right now. Its still got the original drive train and all the original interior. I dont have many pictures of it put together because its still winter here in northern Indiana.
