Just, WOW! Congratulations. Glad you were in a smart. Looks like the main thing you need are new wheels.

Wow, that sounds like a wild ride. The car looks like it did its job - very well. Could have been much worse.

Is it bad that I laughed hard at the part about no wheels being there?

2010 Cabrio rollover in Kentucky

Notice the roof rails were installed.

Good job to the driver and his faithful sidekick.

Those OEM wheels were really expensive, so the insurance company said the car was totaled. We were able to find a replacement within 6 days.
