Glad your ok man!! It looks like you hit something HARD. From all the pics I have seen from members, it looks like the Bonneville does a good job protecting its passengers, at least in front collisions. I wonder what the gov crash test ratings were for those cars. Dont be a stranger to the club.

Wow...oh wow... so, were you injured? are you okay?

I think this makes the third totaled Bonnie for 2007 already... and everyone survived. That is terrible and awesome at the same time.

Moving to General for you...

I want everyone to understand what it takes for a Bonneville to be crushed to this point... That was a Violent crash... Imagine if this had happened in the little saturn next to it

After that Violent impact, notice the passenger compartment held up...

Glad you got away and lived to tell

Glad to hear that you're OK. Sad to see another bonneville lost in the line of duty, but it looks like the car did a great job of protecting you. H-bodies are verry solid cars, and like jr'* said, be glad you didnt have the accident in something like that saturn. RIP bonneville.

Sorry to hear of your unfortunate accident. Why would you leave the Bonne though if it saved your life?

Welcome to the elite club of Bonneville Killers! Sounds like you're functional, and that'* what really matters. It'* a pisser to lose your car, but a blessing that you are still here with us.

I estimate my car took it on the schnoz at 30-35 MPH, which is a pretty good hit. Mine looks like a new car compared to the hit yours took. Wow! Salute your car and thank it for saving your life.

BTW, did anyone notice what color this Bonneville is NOT?
