I never thought I would post one of these threads.
Im glad it wasnt me.
I just built this car for my youngest brother n law.
06 cobalt ran red light yesterday afternoon, both cars totaled.
No clue how insurance is going to deal with this.
This 745 has been in turbobrickers hands for more than a few years, pretty sad.
No injuries in this accident.
BTW, hyrdra was installed after accident, draco is in pieces.

That's a pretty gnarly hit.

Glad the people are alright.

It better have filled out it's organ donor card, I know there are a few 240's that could use that engine.

Well, This car has already made another 240 faster, traded the motors/transmissions about a month ago with my 90 245. So it was rolling NA when it was hit. Can anybody use this thing? $300 is what its worth to me in scrap metal + battery. I just dont feel like pulling out the fuel tank to sell at crusher. Dont even want to touch it. Will Deliver!!!

b230ft/16t is already in my 90 245.

I lied about the other car, turns out it was a 06 pathfinder.
