That same LTD got rear ended pretty hard by a brand new 1990ish Chevy Blazer, or S-10 Blazer more likely. The whole front of it was pretty much gone from what I remember seeing, like the guy ran it into a brick wall. The LTD's rear bumper was pushed down some, it had broken tail lights, it lost some of the individual "F O R D" letters, and the trunk lid was dented, it leaked from then on, and never shut properly again without slamming it, but compare that to the totaled Blazer, that's small potatoes.
