those are some sweet cars.

Even though I know the safety in those cars were a joke (steering wheel puncturing your heart in even a minor headon collision), there's something nostalgic about those cars.

I wonder if a bodyshop would even know how to restore it or if the insurance company would just consider it a loss and pay out.

Act 2 - Toyota sudden unintended acceleration

or a maketing ploy used by Toyota to get some attention ... look, the car is damaged but the driver is 'unhurt'

It was a relatively weak impact... the front end & hood of the Lexus didn't even crumple. Re-bar probably was untouched too.

The car she hit was from a different era where safety was a joke (obviously)... the door/frame/structure completely collapsed with a minor side impact lol, and the seat somehow ripped apart and collapsed too!

Was she late to the Meet ? or was she barred from it and decided to 'crash' the Meet ... Hmmm. No matter, she made it in ;) one way or the other.

She had to be going fast enough to get up and over that curb while carrying momentum - my money is on jammed accel instead of brake.

Either way, asian woman driving, not surprised.

Amen. It's a classic cliche that becomes a true stereotype frankly.

I'd drive alongside a Mister Sulu in a starship than a "Ms./Mrs. Sulu" in any car.

That's some terrible side impact protection there on the classic car, lol. And I mean terrible.

At first I was thinking maybe her airbag light was on (and therefore bags were not operational) but then I saw the pics of the Lexus looking mighty intact. It's funny how people always talk about old cars being built like tanks, when the truth is quite different. It's actually a bit shocking just how much damage that car took on the side, given the condition of the Lexus (where the front end is actually meant to crumple and it didn't even do that).

But yeah this seems like it was certainly the product of "unintended acceleration" lol :lol: Classic car owner should sue Toyota as well :twisted:
