Destined for the derby. Such a shame. Steve.

Here is the ebay listing. Basically this guy is an idiot and crushed his MGA due to his own ignorance and/or laziness. Imperial 1, MGA 0.

He couldn't post a picture of the MGA after the accident??? I mean, as much as I don't want to see this beast end up at a demo derby, it sure sounds like it would probably win one based on what it did to the MGA!

Yep....Old numb nuts here started the car up knowing it had no brakes....drove it forward then backs it into the shop and then the throttle jams open...Straight it into the MGA...lmao...So he blames the Imperial for his stupid mistake...There is a picture of the MGA posted on a FB page...

I doubt it will end up in a Demo Derby...As most places outlawed Imperials years ago.

The guy is a big whiner, the damage show to the MGA is no more than a few days in a competent body shop, and the accident happened due to inexperienced people "Driving" a car that had little to no brakes because it had been sitting too long. I read through the guy's responses on that post, and he truely blames the car for the accident, and literally thinks the damage to the MGA is catastrophic. I've never been a reader of Barn Finds website, but I sure see no reason to start...

The owner and commentator on Barn Finds LOVES foreign cars and
is constantly talking sh!t about American iron, unless it is the cookie
cutter Chevys and Fords. Anything unusual gets a quizzical blathering
about it being unusual and therefore expensive to restore, not worth
the restoration costs, etc., always followed up with a question to his
readers .... "What would you do with it ?"

Jeez, I had seen those pics before and didn't realize that those were actually pics of the damage! He said his MG was "crushed," so like any normal person I was thinking the MG was actually severely damaged. Talk about exaggerating. I'd bet this guy would say he accidentally amputated his arm if he got a paper cut.
