Wow that’s gnarly! Around here police chases and wrong way drivers on the freeway are quite frequent. I wish they would make the penalty more severe for this. Make it 20 years mandatory prison sentence and maybe these won’t happen as much.

Good question. Doesn’t look like it ended well with that sheet in the window.

Chuckling over that nomenclature since it came out. Military Grade Aluminum. Wonder how many folks actually bought into that.

One of my co-workers took his work F-150 through the car wash without removing the radio antenna...it peeled back the fender like the top of a can of sardines..

That aluminum does not dent and bend, it cracks and tears. My concern is for all the other collisions where those cab mounts get stressed. Is cab replacement going to be a factory recommended procedure going forward for collision repairs?blink

The term Coke can coffin is real.
Used to only apply to small cars that would crumple up like a coke can, but now that they are aluminum......

Did that F150 have the optional Ejection cab or some shit? I mean, not sure if thats good or bad.

Where is the bed? Where the hell is the rear diff?

My post is my opinion. If you don't agree with it, I'm OK with it.

Military grade doesn't mean what people thinks it means.

No Signature.

How the hell did that happen on a residential street?

A lot. Unfortunately I know a few who honestly believe that nonsense. My brother in law being one. He argued up and down with my other brother in law about "military grade aluminum". The funny thing is the other brother in law is an engineer who works for the Navy. Navy engineer brother in law tried explaining the bull shit behind Ford's military grade aluminum but dumb ass brother in law simply wouldn't believe him because the Ford salesman "is a good guy and wouldn't lie." laughing

What happened? Head on collision, body mounts just ripped apart and f150 body slide up over the camaro?

|

Truck probably pulled out into the street infront of the Camaro while it was doing Camaro things. Just looking at the axle and how everything is all peeled back, it probably took a shot right there.

Remember the one that caught the utility pole through the magnesium radiator support just inboard of the inner fender rails? Sheared the entire side assembly off.

Had a new 2018 F150 totaled out with 997 miles on the clock last week. Funny thing, the tow bill was 997 dollars.

$997 tow bill? I need to buy me a tow truck.

Just like "these parts are billet aluminum!". Ya, so they started out with aluminum in the shape of a block and machined it into a usable part, whoopty doo.

Or everyone’s favorite “made from 6061 aircraft grade aluminum”laughing

Awesome, so you used a cheap, readily available, and reasonably strong grade of aluminum that makes sense for most application, congratulations. Temper doesn’t matter at all though, right?

It is a big deal when you consider the alternative to aluminium billet .which is cast aluminium.

Possibly ya, like anything it depends on the application.

Or an actual forging in the shape of the part. That would be stronger than a chunk of billet machined into the shape of a part wouldn't it?
