looks like somebody was going around a corner to fast and got REAL friendly with a pole or a tree.

I hope that driver doesn't breed.

LOL, I did that to a Camaro once. I bet you can still get the supercharger out of it. You might be surprised how much of the drivetrain is actuall Slavageable.

This looks like it was "DEFINITELY A TELEPHONE OR LIGHT POLE IMPACT"!!!

Seems that the motor is pretty much intact...

Plenty of body and frame damage...

Could the engine be salvagable???

Well......if that was JUST going around a corner......dont think so! Probably happened going a bit over the posted speed limit. Hope the driver was OK.

*SIGH* So sad. I tihnk the more HP you see in these cars the more totalled cars there will be. People just can't jump into a car with that much torque and expect to keep it on the road at WOT

Drivers side impact

Usually you see this sort of damage on a tight turn, where too much speed (and too little judegment) end up transforming forward velocity into straight "curves". The fact that this happened on the driver's side means they probably slid across the oncoming lane before hitting just behind the front wheel. There's really not much equipment located there, and they managed to miss the main defenses in the door and of course the stiff structure that supports the front suspension. The fender and firewall looks to have caught the majority of the impact, up until the unibody caved inward, absorbing the rest.

Odds are the motor is OK, as is the rest of the drivetrain (though the driveshaft may have popped out of its forward mount). Rear end, brakes, etc. are fine as well, as is the interior and probably the electronics and gauge cluster.

Perfect donor car for someone looking to build a top quality clone.

I wonder what they want for the car?
