    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.

        Looks kind of like wall art.

            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!

                We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                Ayn Rand:
                "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                  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...

                              I'm sure it buffed right out.
