WOW is right. I drove one of those Mini's and it is like driving a go-kart...fun but not the kinda car that I would like to get a crash in.

I find the picture hard to believe. I have wrecked and f-150 at 60+ mph and it didn't look anything like that. I hit pretty hard too.

So I suppose this F150 was only doing about 10-12 mph when it was hit? Something smells a lot like sh!t. That truck looks like it was dropped off a building. As you can see, this truck took a pretty solid hit and the cab is totally intact with the doors still lined up.

I have seen on more than one occasion the cockpit of the new F-150 was brutally compromised. So yes I can believe it.

If that Mini-Cooper would go head on with that truck. I choose to be in the truck and survive, as opposed to be chopped in half while that MC becomes a convertible. But that's just me.

It wouldn't surpise me. A couple of years ago, my buddy who is a contractor got his 7000+ lb E-350 PSD Van totalled out by a Dodge Neon.
