    Proof of what I've said before. Gotta save that to show.

    I think it must have been opposite day when they chose that name for their car.

    A car like that would be even more deadly for a guy like me who often gets pretty bad gas! There's no room for the cloud to dissipate! :D

    While I am not a fan of the smart car, I do not think too many cars would do too well in that accident.

    Looks like a dump truck would be safe. I'll take two.:D

    You would be correct. Smart cars are tougher than you think. Any car and even some trucks would have been crushed between those 2 large trucks. Look at the front end damage on the rear truck:eek:.


    Edit: BTW, it's a Ford Escape SUV, not a Smart. http://www.snopes.com/photos/accident/smallcar.asp

    Also, check out the rim that is visible. It's a 5 lug, Smarts have 3. The evidence backs it up.

    Wheel: couldn't have just been a "pimpin'" smart car? I've seen some pretty stupid looks w/cars and their wheels lately.

    I'm beginning to be skeptical of EVERYTHING.

    Smashket...morbid;)

    Well if it is pimped and snopes lied (which happens, but look at the evidence), then someone did an awful lot of pimping by re-building the body panels out of metal. I don't see any plastic panels laying around the accident scene. I do see an awful lot of bent metal.

    Watch the hailstorm of plastic! :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ju6t-yyoU8s&feature=player_embedded

    Don't worry. It really is a Ford. That hoax/pic has been floating around the net for a while now. Most likely started by someone trying to justify owning an oversized, overpriced monstrosity.
