Glad the family is ok. But man that sucks. It's not like these jeeps are rare or anything though, build it again!

No the neon pulled over and stayed the whole time. I actually pulled up to the accident probably a minute after it occured.

Yeah surprisingly the airbags never deployed.

She went to the store and grabbed a few things so you can see that. And most of it was spare clothing for me and tools.

Wow that is horrific :/ Glad everyone is safe.

Hope your lady didn't take a handful of Torx bits to the face since you said she just picked up some tools.

I actually did not have any sway bars on the jeep. I've always removed them on all of my offroad vehicles.

Glad the family is ok... my jeep took a head on and my stepson and I survived. Did not walkaway, but lived to walk another day. Jeeps are very good at protecting.

Real glad no one was hurt and could walk away.

You should have jerked the 703's out of the neon so he couldn't drive away either.

Happened to my old land lord......in a F350 crew. A Cavalier drove by a girl came screaming down hill, wedged under the truck and tossed it around. Sounds ridiculous but it does happen if its hit just right. Glad your family came out ok, you can always rebuild.

Well I never found another ZJ worthwhile to drive around here in Vegas. All of them here are just plain ran down and have so many problems. So the search continues for a ZJ that's up to par with my old one.

So I picked this up from a friend who never drives it anymore.

86' Honda Accord LXi Hatch 5spd and very fun to drive. I'm the second owner.
