AU - Ugly as sin, but hold up well.

Friend hit from behind by a drunk while they were stopped at a red light. Given the drunk apparently was doing ~100 and started braking 20m away I think it did well..

Roof is buckled so it's a write off, 2 girls in the car are fine bar soreness...

Gee that's not good. Lucky the LPG bottle didn't go kaboom. I'm sure the Bastard than ran up ya freinds arse has a smashed up a/c condenser and maybe even radiator after that dickhead hit the towbar.

By the way mate are you reffering to the Au as ugly before or after the crash?

scary stuff.... it looks like the falcon stood up pretty good. What would be the estimated speed at impact? probably 70-80??

Glad to hear everyone inside didn't get too banged up. How were the other people?

All you can say is, Built Ford Tough!!

No idea what state the drunk was in.. to be honest when I spoke to her it was the least of my concerns.
