Anyone watch the recent episodes on PBS called Jack Irish. A down under lawyer type driving a white 60 Hawk, RHD, etc. About 20 minutes into last nights piece, the venerable Hawk kissed a Semi and is no more. Oy!

Yes, it's been discussed fairly recently on Stove Huggers, plus there's an old thread:

The good news is that the 60 Hawk (60V43228) is still alive & very active in our Melbourne Studebaker Club. Owner Phil Smith along with daughter Dianne drove the Hawk from Melbourne to Adelaide, 550 miles, just this last Easter for our Australian National Meet.

Did they fake the crash, like the Challenger in Vanishing Point, or was it reconstructed?
