Found this on Craigslist today, I already talked to the guy and fortunately he is alright. On the other hand his car has seen better days

Hopefully I can get a few things from him.

Yes, that looked to be a pretty nice car. Reminds me of 6 or 7 years ago when this was towed into a repair shop a few miles south...

Could require a second buffing to make that one look better.

Here in KY, there are a lot of narrow, twisty roads with a cliff or deep ravine on at least one side. The wrecker guy said they had to hoist it up out of one of those ravines. I think the rear damage was from it hitting a tree when it got to the bottom. Not sure if it was wet or what caused the car to spin off the road, but that first step was a doozie. I didn't see any blood, so I assume the driver was OK.

If I visit you, I'll remember that. No first step. Seriously, I've been through Kentucky many times. Usually along I-64. I guess that isn't representative of the state.

I-64 through Indiana has more turns and hills than the KY portion (I drive it most weekends coming back from IL), but those have standards to meet in terms of grade and curvature and they cut rock out to maintain those standards. On the local KY roads in the hilly and often times poorer parts, the roads follow the natural terrain and are often as narrow as they can get away with. There are a lot of fun curves within 5-15 miles from my house that are marked between 15 mph and 35 mph that are a blast to drive...

Here is a topographical map of our first place in KY (red mark on 3249). Notice how it 3249 curves and how quickly the elevation drops off around those curves. This car was towed to a place about 20-30 miles south of here, so it was likely wrecked somewhere in a 50 mile radius of the tow place.

Mattoon, IL doesn't have many curvy roads, most are flat and arrow straight, but there are a couple of things those are good for too!

Interstates rarely are. There are plenty of curvy country roads near the Appalachians, with some dangerous changes in elevation if your brakes can't handle it. A Fiero with only 19K miles on it, that was wrecked less than 10 years ago, may well have had brake/tire issues, especially if it was rolling on original rubber (can't tell from pics if tires are original or not). It can be very tempting on a curvy road, to drive with a bit more spirit, especially when in a Fiero.

There are plenty of wrecks every year in areas like that, where teenagers try to drive too fast and end up running into trees or off a ravine. I've definitely seen my share of that happen in the Ohio Valley area.
