would have thought the airbags would have gone off with an impact like that

It went in sideways, I remember seeing the pics at the time. I don't think Scuds have side airbags.

Ahh you spotted that, buying into a nightmare! Wonder if the insurance knew about that when it was paid out? No oil in engine also, that could be the reason the driver lost control in the first place.

Yes, I knew the supercharged car existed in WA as the shop made a post with photos about it on AE.
If the motor had no oil I withdraw my post about the drivetrain being the only good thing about it :p

It was only installed about 8 months before it was written off so maybe it didn't get worked too hard. Big risk to take though. I guess you could take the kit off and eBay it.

You'd have to be crazy to bid on it if the engine had no oil in it. There could be big damage to crank, bearings, pistons and bores.

Unless you know why it says no oil on the cap, yes you would be crazy  ;)

Hasn't been auctioned yet.
I had a look at it this morning, the right side frame in front of the suspension is bent up about 200 mm and pushed in , a lot worse than the pictures show.
