I think it's quite awesome, to think, that car fell off a transporter, rolled a few times and still looks reasonably well....makes me feel safe incase I ever roll over.

The situation really sucks!

So ... If this guy has the insurance that offers a 1 year newer car if yours is totaled, and his G8 was a 2009, does that mean they'll get him a 2010 Holden from Australia? Or maybe he'll make a killer deal with the tow company and get a 2014 Chevy SS, or better yet, a 2014 Camaro Z/28!
THAT might actually be the car that gets me out of my GXP! (of course I'll have to wait til AFTER I get to drive the newly installed TT version)
