Better to RIP the car then you. The car did it's job and helped you to walk away.

Exactly as everyone else has said...it sucks, but a car can be replaced...you can't. Good thing you walked away from this.

Its a relief that im not reading about another death due to a person DUI. At the end of the day, your health is really all that matters. Now that the F is gone save up and get a GTR

Wow that hurts to see but definitely better losing the car and you being ok though. Good to know how safe these cars really are. Hopefully you will get back into another F or whatever else you decide. Don't give up on moding you car to your liking though as this can happen to any of us at anytime unfortunately.

Really glad to hear you're alright, Bill. And MOTH** FU**ER am I upset for you!!!!! That first picture makes me want to cry for you. Hopefully they'll total the car and you can get into another F real quick. Like another poster mentioned, salvage your rims!

Keep us posted on wheter or not the police find the scumbag that did this and what your plans are for a new ride. RIP Bill's F.

I'm sorry about your F...can't imagine how crappy you feel. But the most important thing is that you're ok, you can always get another F, but can't replace a life...Darshana S....

So sorry to see this happen! Glad you are OK, can replace the car.

Take care of yourself and hope they catch the other driver.

Cheer up bro. Be glad you made it out alive. Although this is an unpleasant situation you will/can replace this for a newer model perhaps.

Look at the bright side brotha'...Ur still ok and in a situation where you can get a 2011 ISF with all the changes you wont look back. Sometimes things do happen for a good reason and this may be yours...keep your head up man.

Those pictures are hard to look at, but, the important thing is that your here to post them. Take care and good luck with the inevitable new car search.
