That rip on the roof looks too clean a cut. But then, strange things happen in accidents.

Almighty Lord! That Skoda has taken a massive impact. Even a bomb could not have caused something like that.

Drive smart. Drive safe.

guys I wasnt saying as per my opinion. I was saying that as a pun. I was sure someone would start a skoda bashing about it's quality hence I said now the skoda build quality image will go after those pics. That's why i also added that it was a freak accident.

I know this is a one off and skodas are built very well.

cheers.

Not all crashes can be survived. Some are real sour and even the safest of the cars can give way. Lets not take an example of just one car to come to a statement.

BTW, this is one place where you get to see junked cars every once in a while. I feel sad as I pass this particular car every day.

I almost saw an accident in making, Remember the AutoPsyche Designed Indica in Silver colour, Well yesterday at 9 :30 PM on the Rajinder Dhabha Road at Safdarjung, The Car junkie runs his car on the High Free Flow note, Misses a Bike and Then screeches the brakes to avoid an Accent coming out..!

The car was full of kids, Din't appear of Legally permissable age, Drinking and then abusing the Accent with Windows rolled down...!

Good thing the Braking was fine, Nahin toh...It would have been a Stunning Mod going down the drain..!

That Skoda must have gone thru quite a lot to be in that shape. Any other car under 10lakhs would have been a lot worse in shape

Saw one black verna guy acting funny on Road No 12 B Hills. I was at a healthy 60 KMPH when I heard this guy honking and flashing. As I was about 20 meters away from a median gap, passes me from left and suddenly slows down for a right turn, following him were two more reckless fellas. This guy ties to take a right turn (or was it U) across an oncoming car, the two cars luckily could brake and I saw them stopped with less than a meter distance from them.

Some fellas are unsutherable (Hinglish).
