Well It was my old garage. I condensed from 2 garages in the same building down to one and the one I kept was untounched. But My old garage was wiped out and the S4 that was inside it won't be driving anywhere for a long time.

The story:
The driver of a T-Bird fell a sleep at the wheel and might have been drunk too, slammed on the gas and clipped the garage next to my garage knocking over the guy's pristine bike and other toys. scuffed the BMW in the carport, clipped the PT Cruiser and pused it forward about 3' and then rammed into the side of my old garage and hit the S4 that was parked inside of it. Then both cars(T-Bird and the S4) went through to the next garage and ended up perpindicular to the normal parking in the garages. NOBODY was hurt except for the bump on the driver's head and his insurance company's pocket (USAA).
The path of the car after the driver fell asleep was the same as the angle I took the above photo from.
I had to wait for the firemen to finish shoring up the building before I could find out if anything from my over packed garage landed on the Corrado. But when I did open it I felt VERY lucky.
The Audi looks bad but bad enough to be totaled? The owner and I hope it is. (Wondering if any of these parts will fit on the Corrado before I part it out, brakes maybe)
The PT cruiser? I know nothing about how well these things take an angle hit to the rear. But I imagine thats its rebuildable.
The BMW will need a buff job.
The motorcycle needs minor work all the way around.

Re: My garage had a car ram through it (crez)

I added a few more pics now that they have cleared out the extra building pieces.
Talked with the S4 owner. I told him I'd like to pull the IC off no matter what happens to the car. I think it would be a good charge cooler core for a friend's TDI. If I get him practicing then he'll be ready for my G60 charge cooler. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

No idea about how fast. But the wife had passed him on the other side of the complex and had to do an agressive evasive manuver to avoid getting the subaru hit.
A nieghbor(The one with the delslow) was walking his dogs and says he heard the car accellerating before hitting. I guess about 45-55. The building was built very good and most of the posts were rotted. But the T-bird did climb the PT-Cruiser. Look at the angle of the rip in the rear hatch.
Hassan(A Cfellow Corrado owner) who works in the ER at a near by hospital says the driver had a .01 BA level. there was a beer bottle in the floor boards of the T-Bird.

I have that same toy and always taking shots with it everywhere I go.
Does the IC from that thing fit the 'Rado, if it does I'll pay you nicely for it, he he he he, but ummmmm please keep us updated if that thing does get totaled, it would be lovely to play volture with an S4, that thing is the love of my life.
Again, I'm glad ur 'Rado made it out of this, I beet she feels indestructible now huh?

I like the camera more than others I've borrowed from friends.
The IC doesn't fit but I'm planning on a charge cooler in the next few months. Take a look in G60 Forum for charge cooler pics I've been collecting.
Not indestructable. The Corrado gods have something else in line for my Corrado


Rob the jet ski is built up quite a bit. The guy who owns it has a lot of really kewl built up toys. To bad its not mine.
