    Congratulations Michael. LOL - lipstick... but band-aid and dressing should do. ;-)

    Fine finish and probably the top ranking for something painted teal in any Challenge! in any photocontest period! ever!!!

PT Cruiser? ouch! PT Crusier convertible??? Never seen one which is probably why I can still see! But I can't help but wonder what Henrickson must think on seeing this --- someone who appreciates fine automotive design has to wonder what became of the great designers of the past!!!

    I'm thinking what difference if you shot it down low to emphasize the crashed part of the car. But then again the police car behind might get lost from the frame. Even though I like it the way you have shot this. In my faves. Good luck!

    Jade: I'll up you a PT Cruiser Convertible. It is in every list of the most ugly cars I could find. Officially it is not a car - it has to be sold as a truck because it can't pass the car safety regulations, which makes it all the more ugly to me. However your Aztech is usually in 2nd place :-) Every time I see one of those I wonder if the owner ever bothered to look at it from the back before laying out his cash. Thank's for the comment - glad I hit a nerve. I realize that my reputation with cars is getting worse. I seem to attract bad drivers even when I am on foot:-)

fc. I was amazed at how much damage there was seeing as she did not hit the bus all that hard. The thing folded up like a Transformers toy.I think my old 56 Chev would have put a big the in the back of the bus and then be able to drive home. Thanks for commenting.

Franz: Thank you. And you would probably be glad to drive it ROFLOL I think it will take more than lipstick to fix this one.

raf: Good point. I often think a good defensive driving sign would be "It's not just a lot of money, it's the endless paperwork and the wasted hours that will cost you - even if it's not your fault".

    Oh dear. Yes the state of the wallet will soon be very ugly.

    Wow! Cool finding. It still looks great and if it was allowed for the streets it would really stand out from the crowd in this condition... :-)

    It was probably cleaned that morning. Hope it was hers and not a partners. You can hear the call.
Well caught and the nice policeman to talk to as well.

    Ouch, a Hyandai, a two door coupé model, teal in colour, fake side vents, ...please stop.... front end damage...ouch, that's really ugly!
(I thought of entering a photo of a Pontiac Aztec but you make this one look even uglier than what I thought was a contender for the ugliest vehicle ever made!)
