I had a 77 like that once. Just cut across the floor & windshield posts, throw away the dent, then weld whats left of the best parts car up there & you're done. :shhh: I still see that Nova every once in a while.
I thought these cars had a bit more substance/metal. This one looks like the truck floor has quite a bit of rot, but between this thread and the one from the crash at the east coast car show, it give a bit of a pause.
Normally I think they do. That car looks like it has a lot of rot. Looking at the driver's side quarter, it looks like it has a lot of rot along the lower edge, and the rear window looks to have a lot of rot too. Rust substantially weakens steel. I bet it wasn't that hard of a hit that crumpled the trunk.
