Default Don't Drink & Drive (8 pics @ 800x600)

Background info: This 88-89 SSE (in rare factory/wheel colour? I don't see these too often) was placed in front of me campus (Sheridan College) to raise awareness as to the dangers of drinking and driving. I don't know the real story behind this Bonneville, but it sure has seen better days. It had either 141,000 or 241,000km, I couldn't really get a good look. Looks like the jaws of life were involved?

My gf of 3.5 years lost her mother in January to a drunk driver. Nothing really is more effective than losing a loved one.

myth

the car was prolly either rolled over, or the needles were past the center point and the shock of the accident knocked them the rest of the way around.
