    Ouch!

    Good luck on the repairs and I hope the car was insured for Appraised Value because otherwise, the insurance company is going to try to screw him over!

    That's by far the most wrong thing I've yet seen here at Foo. And that's saying a lot.

    Modern touches? Would that be when a modern car slams into the back of an old one?

    I'm surprised nobody commented on the terrible gas mileage that Mach 1 surely got. It's a nice car though. Well, it was anyway.

    That's not the Mach 1. He also has one of those, apparently.

    'Tweren't no Mach 1, that.

    Gas mileage is more important to some people than it is to others. Some people want the car to be as efficient and out-of-mind as possible, while some people want to drive and have fun in a cool car. The two aren't mutually exclusive, of course, but eh.

    Eh, someone mentioned it up higher. I'm not a Ford person myself. Give me a 1950 Chevy P/U and I'm in heaven.

    One small consolation: every body panel on that car should be available from one source or another. Even a complete body shell is available now.

    There are many nice older cars out there that are cherished by their owners, but since they don't have the popularity of the 1st gen Camaros nobody is stamping out replacement parts. One good hit and it's adios old friend.

    I think the first-gen Camaro is one of those cars where the aftermarket parts arena is so thorough, you can build one almost entirely out of a catalog. You might need a frame to build off of, but after that, you can buy everything else new.

    the damage is estmated at 3 grand he might get more if they find any mechanical parts that might have been rattled. most of the body work is gonna get done by a friend so a lot of the money will be redirected to the Mach1

    Shouldn't be too hard to fix, especially if the frame stayed straight. But still,
