You uploaded them to Public, just needed to create an album before uploading them.  Oh well, easiest thing for now is I just added Fowles as the title, and here's a link to the search.

I know the guy that was driving the GT4... he did a bit of work for PHR team and then Algadrie afterwards...

He had been pushing his luck for a while. He's VERY lucky to be alive.

It "was" a ripper of an engine in that car... dunno if it's any good now though...

engine bay seemed to be untouched.

nice set of SS headers on it too.

nothing else worth anything on that car apart from the engine/gearbox.

maybe the wheels.

I assume it was the usual lid-chop to get the occupants out, but wtf happened to the rest of it?!?

MAJOR bingle from stupid speed.

He came in my shop not long before wanting to "borrow" some tools and info... been there with him before, not this time.... Last time he went missing for 9 months.. Greece I think...

Lucky for him he didn't hit anyone else.

hmmm. I need some 355 bits. Can you say who bought it? PM perhaps

The GT4... like I said, the engine was a ripper and, if its ok, which I would think it is, mostly, then it's worth all of that...

the gearbox would probably be ok too... but whichever gear it was in when it crashed might have damaged internal selector linkage/forks etc, as the car's all shortened.. so it'll need stripping and checking very carefully.

It'll take 100 hours to strip the car, strip inspect and rebuild the gearbox, and check prep the engine for use, and dispose of the scrap....

so it depends on how you value your time, but it will still owe a fair amount of $$

The parts 355.. OMFG! the runner only made 10k more! Crazy.. even if same bidder got both, both for $102k + is steep I reckon..

whilst the "parts" car wasn't all in one piece, all the pieces were there, and it wouldn't take much to get it running.

the engine bay in it looked clean as a whistle, which, considering it was only a couple of years old when stolen, isn't a surprise.

i'd expect these cars to be mechanically very good.

DS bought it....but i don't think he'll be selling any parts from it.
