Glad to hear he is OK. That could have ended much worse for him. As always, cars are replaceable.

Should have bought a Civic. If I learned anything from The Fast and Furious it was that Civics can drive right under tractor trailers without incident.

I'm glad he's alright. I think about that kinda stuff all the time when I'm driving. I'm sure he's hugging his family tonight.

Dibs on the engine. Also the tranny (if it's a 6 spd) and the diff (if the carrier is intact.)

Vultures.

Here's some more pictures of the damage (our cars hold up pretty well vs. a tractor trailer, even when they don't hold up, like the one that y8s posted, people usually walk out of them ok somehow):

Damn that was a nice nb too, the interior was really to my tastes. Tell the guy he had created a awesome car, but sorry for the bad luck.
