Default Utter destruction: (More pics page 2, parts score also)

Went to the wrecker today to try to get a new C-pillar interior trim panel (failed miserably, the only one of the 5 Bvilles they had with the right interior color was missing the piece I needed) and found this:

Hit so hard it buckled the dash and broke the stereo, squashed the center console like a pancake. I've never seen a Bonneville B-pillar pushed so far in. It sheared off at the bottom. WS wipers are on, and there'* food all over the cluster. Headlight switch is also pulled out. Driving at night in the rain and eating. Hard to say if he got T-boned or lost control. Judging by the rocker panel being intact, it'* not a pole or a tree, but probably another car.

Brutal. But not a spot of blood on the leather. Believe it or not, I think either right side passenger would have survived. Hurt badly, but not fatal.

My theory is that he/she could be eating the food and was inattentive and ran a red light thus getting t-boned by a car, maybe a SUV.

Right here in Corvallis, John. You know what'* STOOPID?



I was so stunned by the destruction, I didn't even look for the passenger side C-pillar trim!

It'* ok. It was below freezing and it would have broken if it was there and I tried to remove it. We'll go take a look John. Funny thing is it has the white aero-lite wheels, but the WS was painted as a 93. I didn't check the door jamb for confirmation.


Jaws of life would be unnecessary for passenger removal. Both driver'* side doors work great.

John, I'll wait to go back until you guys get here. We'll go shopping and take some tools. PM or call or email what you may need/want.
