Post some current pictures!

Looks like a cool project for someone with the machines and tools available.

Oh and especially the time!

With such a hard impact I'm surprised the air bags didn't deploy. Or did they

I have no clue on how the accident happened, but if the car was parked and the ignition was off I don't think the airbags would deploy.

The guy on the floor is absolutely crazy for getting close to that car with only one jack and it being that high. Wow.


Otherwise, seems like a cool project car.

I'm skeptical of the quality of said repairs... and only because I have a feeling that's a car that someone else might end up with some day.

My friend you'll be surprised how many cars are out there with a clean title that have had worse damage than this. The damage on this car wasn't so bad. The only reason it was written off is because the cost of the repairs exceeded the value of the car. If this same damage would have happened on a 2013 BMW 335, I'm sure it would had been covered.

This is very true, I had 7400$ bill for my 4runner to get fixed (insurance paid for it State Farm) two years later sold the car. Guess what, Clean tittle carfax showed no report of it ever being wrecked when infanct it had been flipped and was 900$ from being totaled. Can't solely rely on a carfax. Although mine was in perfect condition and you could not tell it had ever been wrecked..

I never said anything about the driving. If you had a shop in mind from the beginning, I would've never written anything about it. It is difficult to deal with frames if you dont have the tools. anybody with some knowledge can tell when the frame is not str8, even if the car is running. Now that I see you're doing a legit work..props and get it running. One of the best cars ever made...
