It originally appeared fine, but the shaft is bent. We're hoping it's rebuildable through AST.

Current state of the rear:



Current state of the front:



I took some measurements because I can. The back quarter panel is pushed in 5 inches, the front is shoved over 13 inches. Good to know.

Geez, man! That's crazy how far the front end shifted.
Sucks to see a fellow Emerald Green Mica car all busted up.

I am on a light rail train in Portland with my son's third grade field trip.







The train has struck a vehicle.

Draw your own conclusions.

Have fun with that one. Last summer I was on a train that hit a woman...she didn't make it. First time I'd ever seen someone die :(

An old couple in front of our dealership got hit by a train. Our salespeople were first on the scene, and one of our sales guys was right there with them til the paramedics came. The old lady on the passenger side didn't make it. The salesperson took a few days off after that.

oi.

Glad yours wasn't severe here. Now quit breaking things.

Be very careful. Freshman year I got in a car accident, speeding ticket, and an MIP all in one week (in 3 unrelated incidents). After that week I believed in that.

Minor in possession. Fun little Oregon law that revokes your driving privileges if you are caught with alcohol...even if you weren't driving. The situation is a long story but it sucked.

Car is dead, therefore thread is dead.
