Heck, even that looks damaged or at least the mounting points are probably gouged up

Although if anyone is seriously interested, I am in northern Va and can look at it. Doubtful though

I mean the body is mangled to hell.... But almost looks like the chassis could be... straight? Hard to tell without seeing the other side and if the front wheel is at the same angle.

Speaking as someone who put an Elise into a wall, it is possible for the suspension arms to sacrifice themselves for the sake of the chassis. I wouldn't go in expecting that though. The rear wheel has clear toe in that was intended, so I'm guessing it is shot.

There's accident pics in a thread the owner posted here somewhere. Seem to recall it was a wet day, single car accident on a highway.

Just moved to Phoenix, anyone else here?
