How did they manage to hit every side and every corner of that car, so sad, what a shame.

It was being shipped on a boat and obviously it wasn't secured well enough and rocked with the boat.

That about makes me sick.  I remember seeing that on Ebay and really wanted to bid on that car but didn't have the cash.  What a shame.

Wow that's crazy.  I guess I never think/thought about how they get "across the pond"... It is a ship, so there must be ways of protecting against a freaking rogue wave that had to have caused all those cars to bounce off each other?  Nuts.

This is the cheap and nasty way of shipping cars "downunder" the majority of people use containers with 2 to 4 cars in them packed properly.
Also guys and gals the term "across the pond" isn't used when us Aussies talk about bringing a car from the US, as 2 oceans, a zig here and a zag there is alot more than going to "pommie land" across the pond. :)

Looks like the deck hands got drunk and decide to play smash up derby with each other. What's that behind the '74, is that a Volvo or a Ferrari?

You are pushing your limits Evan!  (however, i would probably be sorely disappointed if you did anything else than that cause you push limits with everything you do... stinker). ;)
