No way a deer did all that... The front is a little mashed from hitting the deer, the side is mashed cause they lost controll and hit a tree or pole...

:bs: On the dear thing!
How does a dear run into the side of a car like that and bend the frame downwards?

Yeah, no way a deer hit that thing. It's obvious it got rolled. The only way a deer could have done that is if it freakin' fell from 50 up outta a tree.

and the following quote has a couple innuendos built in as the person typing it had a bit of a guilt crisis.


""""I personally will not be responsible for any problems encountered. Everything I have said in this listing is true to the best of my knowledge.""""


interpretation

uh,, well my buddy's mom really fugged up her car and she's upset cause now the tax return has already been spend at the mall. He begged me to post her car on ebay so he might get some brownie points and would not get kicked out having lived with her for 47 years. I did not wanna lie but ill type in a smaller font so those of you who know about fine print will read between the lines and understand i was presured into this. boo hootin hootin hoo hooo :giggle:

LOL. I saw that yesterday on ebay and I thought - deer......uh huh... :bs: I could maybe see a cow doing that much damage... but even so, wouldn't the damage be in the front? My guess is granny had a bit too much eggnog at the family christmas gathering, passed out at the wheel, and prolly hit a tree. :sleep:

ive seen some bad wreck pics here and even the worst of them were possible to fix.
i have to say that this one was a deadly blow. If that were my car and i posted pics of it here and someone suggested it could be fixed, i wouldnt even know where to start.

Wow! I never saw one that bad. He must have been drunk to survive that wreck.

That's a real shame to see such a great looking car bite the dust. Cars in that condition from that era are a real rare find.

Hey guys,
I actually was watching that car, and I submitted a question to them asking more details about the accident, and the lady sent me the phone number of her brother, who the car belonged to. I called him, and the story is, his 16-year old son had it out on wet roads and a deer jumped out in front of him. He never actually hit the deer; he spun it a couple times and then slammed it sideways into a tree. Apparently if he hadn't caught the tree, the car would have went flying off some very high embankment. I actually wanted the car for all the good sheetmetal it still had (the same parts my '84 LS needs), plus a 35k mile motor, then I'd have sold the rest for scrap metal. I think it was actually an '86 because it had what was left of a third brake light in the back deck. But I needed (and still do) the trunk lid, the passenger door, the passenger rocker panel, and the driver's rear quarter (which actually wasn't bent), and the motor/tranny; and I believed him about the mileage. The car had been his mother's, you know, the proverbial little old lady's car that was barely ever driven, and then the mother passed away. I think he was a little high for a total wreck like that, low mileage or not, and if he hadn't sold it on Ebay, he told me he'd consider parting it. Somebody got it, though. But I had the same first reaction; my literal question was, "how big was the Mack truck that the deer was driving?". I think the deer got off luckiest of them all.
