I am posting this for Kiwi Kia as he can not work out how to do it (thanks for the referral Willem LOL).

I am sure Ray could explain it a bit better but it doesn't look good.
Just where would you have attached the strap??



Cheers Darkie (the Tow vehicle cause a Missan wouldn't be able to do it LOL)

Perhaps you can illuminate what is fake about it? Looks like an unfortunate Kenworth front end to me, but then you can tell.... ?

If it's real where are the chassis rails that the motor would be on?

G'day guys,

What were they towing/pulling with?

Ripping the body work off maybe, but ripping the chassis apart... not so sure!

I can't work it this one out. That water truck must have got the runup from hell to snap a chassis with a straight pull.

Seems to be a distinct lack of chassis rails and coolant too?

I gotta say it certainly does look ridgey didge however. If it is a fake it's well done.

The seppos in the pic look amused with themselves.

V8Diesel,

Don't know if the water truck was there to tow or came along afterwards to wash away oil and fuel etc... I see they have run out the lightweight hose back to the body of the Kenworth.

A possibility as to how so much damage occurred; I have seen some real doggy accident repairs done on trucks in the USA, maybe some 'cut & paste' chassis repairs ?
