    Totalled CGT -Maverick's request

    I appologize if i get some of this information wrong and don't mean any offence to anybody involved.

    In my understanding the CGT is owned by a 22(ish) year old millionaire here in vancouver. First collision involved the car doing a 540 deg spin into a curb. Car was sent back to germany with undercarriage damage.

    I thought that was the end of the story but apparently the car showed up at the garage of my college (BCIT) for an alignment. However this time the car was totalled as the airbags were deployed, extensive damage to rear diffusal panel, and the left rear wheel needed replacing. Also a welding rod was found sticking halfway inside the left exaust pipe.

    Not sure if this damage was from the first accident or if it was fixed and returned and had another.

    Re: Totalled CGT -Maverick's request

    A.) those are two different cars
    B.) the second car (seal gray) is owned by a guy in vancouver resident named (not joking) Dick Hardt. He made his money when he was younger (might be as early as 22 as you claim) in the open source software market (wrote the software that brought Perl to Windows); however, that was almost ten years ago. I think he is at least 35 now. I found his weblog in a google search

    My mistake, i was under the impression that they were both Dick's car in 2 separate collisions. Do you know who's car the first one is then? And if you know any details that i missed please share.

    Re: Totalled CGT -Maverick's request

    I didn't mean to call you out or anything, although now that I read what I wrote with that A/B crap I did come off sounding like a bit of a prick :P sorry!

    the cars are two very different colors, I'm surprised you don't notice that by looking at them. the first car is GT silver and the second car is seal gray. I don't know much about the first pictures you've posted, although I've seen them before.

    The picture is from a dealership in Norwalk Calfornia. Was the car sent there?

    Re: Totalled CGT -Maverick's request

    I don't know for certain. I too noticed the McKenna truck looked a little out of place for our local MCL dealership. as syf0n said though, those are 2 different cars (I wasn't paying much attention to that, i was too stunned by seeing this 1/2 mill cars totalled). In which case- Anybody know of a wrecked GT in cali??

    Ferdie- Its called British Columbia Institute of Technology. Basically its a college/university which puts a much higher emphasis on practical applications-however a CGT on campus...I was shocked. Dick Hardt must know somebody here

    Hahahaha! That's almost as bad as our best SA enduro motorbike rider called Gray Dick LOL!!!

    Re: Totalled CGT -Maverick's request

    IIRC there have been several CGTs wrecked in California.

    I went to a technical high school in the Los Angeles area in the early 70s. The school had a relationship/deal with VW at the time who was the importers of Porsches to the US. Guess what my classmates got to work on? Several brand new 911s were alway at the school. Too bad I had chosen the electronics major instead of automotive.
