HOLY COW - PORSCHE TRAIN WRECK KILLS 3 SPEEDSTERS, AND MORE (Caution: Gruesome Pics).

Wow, I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it. One of the transporters bottomed out on the train tracks. A big freight train came by and smashed the transporter to pieces, sending the Speedsters flying!

I'm downloading pics from my camera right now...

The red and white ones look like the ones in the Oct. Excellence. Let's hope not. Fresh restorations on Pre-production #1,2,3 if I remember.

Wow, that is terrible. Any word on the history of the cars and who the owners are? Were any of them salvagable?
