So, I guess the bullet acted like a punch to break cleanly through that stucco... ;)

The wide whites sure dress it up, even in that situation.

I'm pretty sure the cause wasn't texting while driving.

Notice how the front wheel went through the wall without damaging the wall. Hate to see the wheel, I guess!

With a plastic bullet?
It looks like a brand new 1951 Land Cruiser, but I could be incorrect.
It jumped a curb, went through a fence and traveled some distance before even striking the house - just too much power in that new OHV V8.

My guess is he wanted to service the rear end but didn't want grease spilled on the garage floor.

probably just wanted to check the suicide doors for himself... I think it is just a shame to see a great car like this, in a wall...

Judging by the address on the wrecker; '3422 W Pico Blvd', that wreck occurred in Los Angeles near Pico/La Brea ca. 60 years ago. Another tipoff was the odd size license plate: the 6" x 12" format didn't become standard till 1956 with Calif being one of the last hold outs.

Strangely, the girl the driver was looking at is nowhere to be seen in these photos... :D

I'm sure it buffed right out.

Yes. It's a 51 LC for sure. As for power...I have to wear a neck brace when I drive mine because of the snappy acceleration...NOT! Great car, though!

I noticed that, too. What happened is the front wheels went up and over the short concrete foundation wall then dropped down on the other side so the roof ended up as a nice tight fit once it slid in. I can't believe the plaster didn't totally collapse above the car because the wall studs would have been destroyed.

My guess is a '51 Champion.

If it's a Land Cruiser it cant be a Champion. For 1951 it would have been a V-8. Notice the rear window in the rear door6
They didnt make 6clys for the Land cruiser in 51 did they?

I thought all 1947 up Stude 4 door sedans with rear 1/4 windows were Y bodies (Land Cruiser, President Classic, Cruiser, 1962+ Lark, etc.).

I was going by no V 8 emblem above the trunk lid handle and no "Land Cruiser" script above the bumper.

The rearview mirror appears to be in good shape this picture shows me the house construction leaves a lot to be desired in the strength deparment. Shows these walls are not BULLET proof

May have saved the Land Cruiser's life! Any guesses as to the make of car in the Garage?
