I think it's BS. If that's the case they should crush those Honda Civic racing on the road. I see them all the time.

This is an old video

It looks like someone has reposted it with a silly story.

they only crush cars with illegal mods. mostly cars with non EPA certified engines. they call them JDM engines. And also cars with stolen parts(vin tagged).

They also crush cars that are delinquent on impound fees.

these are mostly young adults that fall for this type of gossip. old folks look beyond the "slant".

i heard that the f was caught burglarizing Tom Cruises' home and the owner of the f was also wanted for illegal trading of elephant tusks from Zimbabwe. that's really the reason why the car was crushed bahahahahaa

Default It hurts to watch... Poor ISF

Not sure if any of you have seen this yet... or if this has been posted already but my buddy at work sent me this link... i almost shed a tear

"Lexus IS-F being sacrificed for the sins of its owner. Seems someone was caught street racing by California authorities, and they didn't appreciate it. So they relieved the offender of one mighty red IS-F and then didn't send it to an auction or a good home, but straight to hell....."

http://www.autoblog.com/2011/10/22/w...ously-crushed/

Street racing on public roads/freeways. Not a good idea ever.
