This car reminded me of a car I saw here recently from a new member. The hammer style wheels are what drew my interest. Is this the same car ?

WOW. How does that even happen? I hope he is ok. The article said that it was not a fatal accident, but I dont see how you come out of that with bumps and bruises.

These cars seem to tear like tuna cans...either at the firewall or the rear floor pan.

That looks like a good reason for the whole subframe and jacking rail kit.

Don’t let Nader see this, otherwise he’ll write about Mustangs in unsafe at any speed 2.

WOW ! hope whoever it was is ok, how does that happen !
Hard to tell but it looks like the front bumper on the accident car is black and maybe missing
molding in front of wheel well.

This is at least the sixth fox I've seen that came apart like that. Kinda scary, to be honest.

I found a video that details some more of the car. The front bumper is primer grey but doesn't show the side of the bumper we can see in the picture he posted on the site. I hope whoever it was is ok. This really doesn't surprise me, when really cutting into these cars you discover how slapped together these things are and how little structure there is in certain areas.

If you sever one of the rockers, then there’s really not much holding the car together at thar point. No roof like on a t-top car and it just tears. Compound that with a rusted floor, or a seat pan with stress tears, and these cars are just weak tin cans.

Really hope the driver of that car is doing ok
