...you can't stand to see it but you just can't pull your eyes away. The two classic vehicles that woman nailed shouldn't go out that way....:gun:

how the hell did this happen? Look back from where the car came from it looks like she skipped over 2 sets of curbs. She must have been going fast...

But it is a Lexus.. :P

Poor classic ruined by yet another moron.. If I were the owner, I would likely have kicked her incompetent ass until she felt the same pain my car did..

Although, if anything can be learned from this, look at the damage done to the Pontiac, and look at the lexus. Im pretty sure the lexus will buff out. Didnt even impact enough to set off the air bags!

Now the pontiac maaaay need some rubbing compound...

Ironic: my mother owns a Lexus, dad has a Toyota, all I need is a black SR-5 "Marty Truck" to go with the DeLorean. :rock_on:

That poor LeMans! Well, I hope no one was hurt at least!

Speaking of the SR-5, My brother is *still* trying to find an inexpensive vehicle for sale, I might suggest he get one of those.. The prices look great on an '85 SR-5..

Just yesterday, I was trying to show my better half how to parallel park the DeLorean. She was all like, "I can't do that. I can't do that." lol poor girl...she hates parallel parking. Can't drive stick, not yet. I taught myself on the D, never driven a standard before that.

It is hard to parallel park in New York city. You have about 6 inches space on each end. Plus your trying to do it with traffic backing up behind you. Last time I was in NYC I had to have a resident do it for me. Took him one try and 10 seconds to do it.

Practice makes you good at it.
