I was perusing the local (Portlad, OR) Copart auction when I found this... It gave me a pit in my stomach. It looks to have been a restored car, and it doesn't look like the owner could possibly have fared well in the accident. I hope whoever owned it is okay, but it's not likely. I know we're a small community here and someone likely knew him or her.

I gave up motorcycles a couple of years ago because other drivers are just too terrifying with their noses buried in their smartphones, and I've been working towards getting my '57 President on the road. The car in this auction is scary to see. Be careful out there folks.

Don't click the link if you're faint of heart.
