This is what happens when you are driving along minding your own business and some girl with a suspended liscense waits at a stop sign until you get really close, and then she pulls out right in front of you in a car that has no insurance and is not registered.

These pictures are a couple of years old. Luckily I had uninsured motorists. They paid me and then sued her. The outside looks repairable, but it was underneath where all the problems were. The impact turned the frame into an accordion. I ended up parting it out but I wish now I had kept it for parts on another project.

Yes, my Blazer brother, that is a sad tale. I hate to see such good sheet metal ruined by the uncaring. Hopefully the parts allowed a rusting hulk or two to live a normal life again...

Yes they did. A friend of mine had a 4wd Blazer that was a rust bucket. He bought both doors at first. About a week later he ended up buying the body tub. The rear end is in my brothers truck.

man, that must have sucked! at least you got something out of the deal and some of the parts were used on another project. It could have been worse though, when my blazer was stolen I got NOTHING! I did get the truck back, but with no wheels, no stereo, no seats, and a big dent and scratch on the door.

Man that sucks.

There was a post at either PBB or CK5 where a guy totaled out his short bed. it was a sweet truck too. NOTHING slavagable. I have never seen a truck so balled up. The radiator and the condensor were over the passenger side tire.

Guy was pulling a u-haul and hit the brakes. The trailer jacknifed on wet pavement sent him head on into a Yukon. Then got broadsided by another car. Trailer wrapped around the rear and finished it off. Broke the block and bell housing.
