If you know how and have a place to do the bodywork,and the price is right....this would maka a nice purchase. Though,one may need a frame machine . The engine damage is another factor,also.

I bet this things makes crazy money. It will not be a deal when the hammer falls.

I hope the driver sees this thread and will let us know how he is doing and the circumstances involved with the accident.

I hope this wasn't another power steering failure. The Vert should have been in storage this time of year..JMO

Yea, I'd like to hear the story behind this too. Too much car, not enough driver? Steering failure? Who knows...

I thought the link said engine damage. Maybe worse than it looks.
Yeah it did.Agree. With Estimated cost to repair 48K(if correct) maybe the engine blew?

Here is one that I posted in the regional forum. Sadly the driver died. The tire in the picture seems to be from a ZL1. I have heard nothing further regarding the accident / cause. But the conditions here were clear and cold at the time of the accident.

I bet it's this one. A black ZL1. No pic,though.
