Beautiful early 70s chevelle - black with racing stripes, SS badging.

They're shooting some movie on my way to work, and today they must have done some stunts with a wrecking ball. I should have stopped to take a picture, but the tourists were bad enough with their gawking and I didn't want to be late.

They were already lining up a second one, hopefully not to smash :bawling:

real i think...def a steel body. i wouldn't be surprised if someplace makes bodies just for smashing up, but it wasnt fiberglass or aluminum

no interior, no engine

They can crush all the 73-late 80's Mustangs they want...

They do make aftermarket steel bodies for older musclecars, but I think you could slap a bunch of bondo on a clunker for a lot less $$.
