535,836 miles and that's it. Offset frontal crash with a tractor trailer, 30mph. 18 year old airbags deployed as expected.

That'll buff right out.

Looks like it was a nice car, expect lots of offers for the head and seats.

Amazing to see the technology from 20 years ago was able to protect you.

I assume you and anyone else was able to walk away unhurt?

Did this car have its original engine? Does it have a #21 or #22 head?

The car served faithfully and then did it's final job. Just like the engineers planned. [well, maybe with a few less rod issues.....]
What is/was the engine history with this car?

Can we assume all occupants walked away? Everyone else involved fare okay?

I'm pretty sure at least a tie rod is bent.
