    Yes, cars fold like accordions and it's for a good reason even though it may not look like it. We looked at it yesterday at the body shop ( tower ) and it looks like it went under the Jeep. The frame rails on the Avenger were hardly damaged.

    Jeep Wranglers, especially if they've been modified for any off road play ride high, and generally have heavy bumpers and skid plates. I'm not surprised that the Jeep looked like it was ready to go off-roading! Glad no one was hurt.

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    Nobody's perfect; we all make mistakes.
    Hopefully he'll learn from it.
    Very pleased to note that no-one was hurt; except in the wallet and pride.

    We got a replacement already! Christian pretty well had his mind made up he wanted a a white 300 with a Hemi ( dad wanted an AWD vs RWD to keep him safer and on the road in the winter ) and he would really like a sunroof. We started hunting a bit but nothing was the this is it moment so I called my car dealer buddy and asked him if he had anything coming in. He said not but his hired man has a white 300 that he might sell because he just bought a 300 SRT with the 6.1. He asked him about it and got back to me, it was a fully loaded ( literally everything but the tommy gun ) 2013 300s AWD with a Hemi and 125k and he would sell it because he didn't need two cars. We struck a deal at $7750 and Christian is beyond happy even though the pic doesn't look it
