My new neighbor across street is Express Auto Transport.

They use yard for Fleet maintenance, storage of trucks, receiving and distributing Vehicles.

They transport damaged and undamaged vehicles.

Saw this one today.

John D. will need tissues.

Concensus is that it was (is) a Backdraft.

The Chev truck was really drilled in the l/f corner.
Not even sure if the suspension was even still on it.
They came at different times, left same day.
Perhaps they were just staged close to each other for convenience of loading.

Thanks John, how many firms are doing the Cobra, knock off?

Rather than type 'em all out... here's a link  Some manufacturers only offer "turn-key" cars.

Tough hit on the Mustang!
Hopefully it can be fully repaired, especially if it has a personal connection for the owner.

 If it's at that place, the owner has been paid and it's going to be/has been auctioned off. Gonna be a LOT of repair to replace the whole back half.

You know that little check-box on your License that says "Organ Donor"...
That's what that Mustang is now.

The cost to get that Rustang straight & safe again FAR exceeds what it'll ever be worth... even a convertible.

Left this week.
Have no idea where it went, however, maybe the detectives in our group will figure out the meaning of Ortonville on the windshields.

It is a distribution center with transports delivering stuff all over the place.
I do not know anyone over there.
Karl

Just keep teasing you-all with pictures.tiphat

Ortonville, MN may be a collection point for damaged vehicles in that area. I don't find an auction site in that area.
I suspect by the time they get to the yard by you, they have already been sold and are loaded with other vehicles heading in the same general area.

Another one.

IMG_0860.JPGIMG_0865.JPGIMG_0866.JPGIMG_0867.JPG

Painful to see, have to wonder how it happened and the condition of occupants(s)

Sitting across the street from the Treasure Chest in Farmington.

Be careful out there.

WOW !! Appears to have been hammered from behind and driven under a vehicle in front.
Without head rests and shoulder harnesses, that had to be a painful ride.

Looking at this again, still, I wonder if they spun out at high speed and hit a guard rail backwards and flipped over onto the roof ? The trunk lid not being as far forward as the floor seems odd for a rear hit and no evidence of a frontal collision and ride under.

Looks like a 66 that Unique in Mankato was asking 56k  for this fall.  But wrong rims.
