Looks like the video is from a really bad movie.

That's hard to watch. Seems he had a professional film crew on hand to capture his misguided frustration.

But, all of our 911's just got a tiny bit more valuable.

I wouldn't be surprised if that car could start and run.
It might need a new battery after that initial hit in the rock garden, and you wouldn't be able to drive very far with the chassis destroyed....

Looks like it could be a clip from some 1980's movie.

They destroy a lot of cars in movies.

1965-66 Mustangs were a dime a dozen back in the day, and a favorite of stunt car drivers from what I can tell.

70's/80's clothes? Advertisement or a movie? The car was disposable back then......

In New Zealand we tend to drive it home after a minor ding like that.

John Blake had a tragic life. He was severely injured in a car accident December 1986. They had just finished filming of "The Lighthorsemen".
