Maybe you're thinking of SteadyED's car?

My car don't have bumpers :P...it could have been as low as EFFalcons...I hope :oops:

And yes, the car was out for collection :)...it left nice scratch marks on the tarmac since the guy pulled it up onto the trailer with hand brake on :?

Yeah...the road is inclined...without the handbrake it did roll slowly down the hill towards a parked car...even without the wheels which we found quiet amazing lol.

Yes the car in the picture was crush after many changes, many months of failing to sell and then 3 months of it being stripped of parts for use on my EL wagon. in 9 months of it being on the market all I got was offers to sell the wheels and nothing else. The motor, front seats, steering wheel, front bar and bonnet scoop and othere little things still live on in the wagon.
