Unhappy Some pics i clicked while at the Ford dealer

I had taken my Ikon for its second service to the dealer - Cauvery Ford on Saturday. While i waited around for the car, took some time off clicking around the dealership. Came across some badly injured cars, and also uncared for exotics.

Dodge Kingsway









Cudnt get any interior shots owing to reflection.


Mondeo lies in ruins




Badly mangled Fiesta

Surprisingly, the shell still remained intact !

Nice pictures benbsb29. Any idea if the Dodge is for sale?

There are other vintage's on the left and right of the Dodge. Which ones are they?

The MOndeo looks like it just needs a proper body wash and it should be OK. Does not look like it is damaged or anything. Nice car.

@ SB, Even i felt the same when i first saw the Mondeo...
but the rear right wheel looks cracked, out of place, God knows what exactly...!! Must really cost a lot, else, why would someone abandon a fine car like that?

@ moralfibre : I dont think the Dodge is on sale... i tried to get some interior shots too, but ended up with my own reflection on the glass... hehe... so, didnt post that here.

Anyone has any idea how the Fiesta ended up in that shape? Looks like it has taken a beating from ALMOST every angle. Amazingly, looks like the passengers would have escaped with not so major injuries.. but i am not sure.

I think it flipped on some road or came rolling down a mountain or got stuck between two trucks.

No damage to the roof. So it's spun and hit a sharp corner on 3 sides like a pillar.
