Not going to post the rest of the *graphic* pictures, but how's this for an injured alfa. 200km/h at time of impact. Speed limit was 50km/h

Yes, that Montreal looks gravely injured. Too bad such a crappy looking
car wiped it out—or maybe it was the other way around?

Anyway, two photos of my '84 gtv6 that I totalled way back in '95.

It was a summer thunderstorm that flooded the highway—I hit a big
puddle patch and hydroplaned—was going backwards at 50mph with
some headlights bearing down on me—briefly thought I could save it,
and then spun again and cartwheeled along the retaining wall.
Luckily I wasn't hurt and managed not to hit any other cars—but I'm
still a little bummed about losing the Alfa.

Here's a Berlina that went around and around at the body shop here in Berkeley, and finally got left outside to be vandalized, then removed. It includes the front clip of a Berlina I sold to the PO.

Excerpt from Ian Ellis entry on the AROC UK website forum;

I had the unenviable task of cutting up a Montreal today
The customer already has one car which he'd managed to have a slight altercation with at the front end - he managed to find another rusty shell that had a good front end. After removing the front to be grafted on at a later date, he decided to create a "sculpture"or "installation art" - each side of said Monty to be cut off in its entirety - to be hung butterfly-style above the fireplace in his "17th Normandy pile"!!
I found it rather disconcerting at first, but then this car had already been broken for spares & was never going to be on the road again.... still sad though




The Monty after cutting the side off:
