Haha no, I don't think a train was involved. I think it the GC just got nailed from the front passenger side, towards the center of the vehicle. It must have been fairly low speed, as the damage did not get into the engine at all and did not shift the engine. It just bent those frame ears, tweaked the passenger wheel and wrecked everything in front of the engine. I'm fairly certain that the insurance company or repairable lot removed a lot of the wrecked pieces before it was put up for sale, so as to give a clear view of the actual damage.
I could almost make a flip book with all the pictures I took, it would be kind of neat. After my last build I vowed to take too many pictures before not enough- never know when they might be needed and they can't be replicated once it's fixed!
