    I'm sure a lot of the cars destroyed in these scenes are junkers from scrap yards destined for the crusher, plus there's plenty out there. I wouldn't worry to much.

    This freaking scene from TMNT 2014. A waste of a beautiful black Crown Vic. It may not be a classic car, but it still left me triggered, considering how much of a fan I am of any car on Ford's Panther Platform.

    When I first saw the scene, I immediately loved the car, and was pretty pissed when Michelangelo blew it up. Really made me want to get my hands on him. Why couldn't they blow up some cheesy prop or use cgi?

    Like I said, there's plenty out there, you just gotta look. Besides like I also said, they where probably cars to far gone for restoration, rotted out with no engines just painted pretty for the scene.

    In hollywood they use shells of cars "dolled up" to look pretty for the scene and good running cars that don't get destroyed for the other scenes.

    All those poor Lamborghinis smashed in @FrIzErIs videos. (Part 8 especially)

    But it's all for entertainment value, so it's okay.

    Joy ride 3

    Wrecking of a perfectly beautiful black semi that was destroyed in every other joy ride movie, but this one especially, this one being what I thought the worst one

    I believe all of the Chargers in the recent Fast and Furious movies are mediocre condition shells with custom everything else (the Fast 6 custom Daytona might be an exception, not sure about that one. I know a couple parts were modified compared to the factory Daytonas to look nicer on screen, such as significantly shortening the rear wing).

    Dukes of Hazards killed a lot of Chargers, but that was back when stuff like that wasn't exactly rare or expensive.

    TBH I love the hoonicorn mustang, but I am not okay with the fact that they basically started with a great condition mustang and removed everything but the shell. Not cool.

    want a great muscle car that is forgotten get a amc amx
    if you want a forgotten pony car that has a charger front get a mercury cougar
    if you want a modern classic muscle car get the equus bass 770 if you have a spare quarter of a million dollars us$
    but the fist 2 should cost about $10k to 30K

    Funny thing:
    I was extremely tired when I first saw that picture, failing to notice the man jumping. At first my tired brain thought it was a Beamng screenshot, and i was like "why does it looks so good?"

    I saw footage of ground crews sifting through the burn area of the recent Californian forest fire (you know, the big one.) and I saw a burnt out gen 1 Mustang sitting in the driveway of a house that burnt down. The fires were bad, yeah, but that Mustang made me mad.

    Although I did earlier see a old Bel Air that survived with minor paint burns where it was closest to the house (which was no longer standing after the fire), so that was cool.

    Dude, it's a crown vic. Those things are so common nearly every Police car in the US that isn't in one of the 10 biggest cities has a fleet of exclusively crown vics. Also a ton of new york yellow cabs are crown vics, the government itself uses crown vics, etc. Its a common car. Nothing to worry about if one is destroyed.

    EDIT: I'm also really mad the guy who directed the FnF movies who thought destroying perfectly good classic cars for his shitty movie was justifiable. Fuck that guy.

    EDIT 2: Added a quote to make it more clear who the third section was aimed at.
