Saw this Bonne sitting in front of the local high school. Teens out partying and drinking all night long. Below are the results.

That Bonne took the hits well. Imagine that being a Honda Civic, or toyota Corolla. That'* a tough way to learn a lesson.

i was shocked how "good" the rest of the car looked after seeing that front end shot!! totally flat, but yeah, any other little honda would have been torn apart.

Those pre-prom drunk driving displays in HS always ticked me off at how a few idiots make the whole age group look bad.

On the other hand, kids at my school were pretty bad about that. 3 kids from my class managed to kill themselves in wrecks before graduation, and there were only about a hundred in my class.

Our pre-prom display this year was an Olds 88 (I think) with the 3.8. It had been rolled over. I was just about to ask my principal about the car (because the towing company had pulled it out of the junkyard and donated to the school) and they ended up towing it out. All I wanted was the motor.

My school'* drinking/driving display this year... made a post about a long while ago



We concluded that it was probably a jaws-of-life training victim, but still warning about the issue nonetheless.

i wish i had taken pictures of the intrepid i got in when i was working at the yard. drunken idiot for sure. and a definate fatality

the car hit a pole with the driver'* door. the speedo frozen well north of 100. the drivers door was touching the passenger door. you could stand at the front and see both headlights and taillights.

when striping the car down we were able to salvage:

the motor
one taillight
the ABS controller
1 winsheild wiper

every other part of the car was a total loss.
