          NASTY But I don't get the "last trip" part. Definitely fixable!

          A modern car with that much damage would cost more to fix than it's value- thus would be totalled. But a collector car is a different story. Hard to tell from the pictures shown, but if it's a quality build it will be well worth saving. The frame looks straightenable, or at least new rails could be sectioned. The rear tub? Done plenty of times- mostly to repair rust.

          I get the feeling some would think it would be impossible to find parts. Common misconception where Studes are concerned.

          I have a 60 Lark VI 4dr here. The PO spent good money to have floors put in, body done, and new paint at a pro shop. Drove it home from the shop and while waiting to make a left turn into his driveway for the first time he was rear-ended. He was so dejected he drove it into the back yard and left it.

          A few years later he passed away and the house sold. While cleaning the house out his family stuck the car on eBay, as-is. I straightened the LR frame rail and inner fender. Bought a NOS fender for $35, and a parts car from Frank Drumheller for $100 with everything else it needed.

          Too bad the guy gave up on the car after spending all that dough. It wasn't as bad as it looked.

          I think this car is the same situation. Hope the owner doesn't give up on it too quickly.

              The car looks rather interesting now as a boat-tail speedster. [B)] I assume the insurer of the Crown Victoria will pay for the damages, or at least I hope it does.

                I'm so sorry to see that.

                I'm very glad it wasn't mine or Dave's new black 1955. (which I thought it was for a moment)

                I once had my 2 day old paint job keyed after I did all of the bodywork and had it painted. (non-Stude, a Cordoba). I sold the car about a week later for a song.

                    The story goes ........ car was just finished and was at the alignment shop for a complete suspension alignment, a Crown Vicky missed the corner, jumped the curb and plowed into the right quarter sending the car into a park truck and destroying the left quarter.

                    I wouldn't go so far as to say it's totalled just yet.
