Jesus himself couldn't save that one - and he hasn't posted on the forum for some time.

How did it get so bad? Was it in an acid bath for 40 years?

Looks like the window glass is the only thing holding it together structurally... far out.

Probably was a bit straighter until they tightened the ractchet straps down. Still, is that method of securing a car even legal?

Can it still be considered a "car" at this point?

I had a pretty rotten W115 here which was so bad that the car bent in half when i sat in the front seat ,and the bonnet got jammed against the firewall. They are out there....
