    79 TA crash

    Saw this on another website I go to. The guy survived but man oh man is it sad to look at. I think the guy is lucky he had a hard top and not a T-top car.

    Those pics =

    So hard to look at, glad the drivers ok. That would break my heart.

    The news article is wrong on the year, that's not a 83' T/A.

    Doesn't say whether it was an L78/W72 optioned TA or not. If so there are so good parts to strip off that thing. Somebody better get after it

    it has the 79-81 front end. The car is a 79 with the 403 olds engine. Firebird jones in 1979 you can only get the w72 in the 4spd and you can see in the pics that the car is an automatic.

    That's exactly why I mentioned the W72 option and said go strip some parts off that thing (if it had the option) The super T-10 and that 8.5 rear with 3.23/3.42's and disc brakes are handy little items.

    Didn't look at all the pics, just looked at the main pic with the dump truck still on top of it.

    Had that happen to me in a 99 cavalier when I was in highschool. Luckily she hit the trunk instead of the passenger area. The dump truck always win. That was scary as shit. Had to crawl out the driver side window. The trunk was shifted a good 3-4ft over.

    Had a friend in 91 get hit by a train. Car stalled on the tracks at night. Instead of pushing the damn thing off the tracks he kept trying to start it. For some unknown reason he didn't hear the train or the horn. Train one, car obliterated. Somehow he survived.

    Here's the bitch of it all - It was supposed to be his last day in the army, spent the next year in physical therapy.
