Accident at Colorado Meet 1/22/04
Posted 22 January 2005 - 10:20 PM
He walked away and declined the ride to the hospital after paramedics arrived. Injuries seemed to be minor and he was able to pull himself out the busted out back window of his XT shortly after the crash. Luckily nobody was in the passenger seat or they might not have been so lucky. He will be sore for a while in the shoulder.
The car is totalled but won't be a total loss as Rick will part out the goodies. Just glad he made it out, this could have been a lot worse. The dropoff at the accident scene was very steep and he slid off slightly sideways and then the nose went down and the car rolled end over end finally landing on its top.
I have uploaded the photos Joy took in his photo album here:

All I can say is that I'm super glad your okay Turbo, and I'm right down the road whenever you need help parting it out/getting you in another Subaru..etc. With the guys you have around you we can find another car and rebuild it if we have to. I'll send you a PM with my phone number, don't hesitate to use it.

Hope someone does have before pics for ya, I had a Caprice I had just finished restoring and it was totalled before I could get pics of it. It's crappy when all you've got to look at it is a squished hulk.

Your ok, the car has usable parts...
It could have been a lot worse
Maybe the car is now ready to become a modified off-roader?

That's nuts, glad no one was riding shotgun.
Here are some pics of the car in my garage.
Ya know, aside from the roof it doesn't look that bad. I think you should just run it, full on Road Warrior style.
Does it start?
