Yes seems likely and he's already missing half a leg But he is still holding the steering wheel so there's a chance to save it yet!!

This scrambler version (CL77?) very much reminds me of it. For the age, I'd say it's a 8/10 and in much, much better condition than I usually see them, just shy of as immaculate as this one.

Journalistic standards were always for sale to the highest bidder. GM had more money than brains OR moral standards. Motor Trend's credibility = 0
