I don't see anything that indicates a wreck ( wheels are all in good condition, what body panels there are look in good shape) so I would suspect stripped.

It wouldn't end up in the wrecking yard unless it was totaled out...It's hard to tell from the pics cause you can't see the entire subframe..My guess would be stripped. Sad to see that.

Wrecked, T-boned on front passenger side.

1. Note the difference in hood attitude relative to both front wheel archs.

2. Note the elevated floorboard under the front passenger seat.

3. Note the crumpled front passenger side door sill.

4. Note the divots on the front passenger side rim.

Damaged? Yes. Wrecked? I don't know about that. The small difference in hood slope from right to left and the other small dings don't seem to justfiy taking this car to wrecking yard and stripping it down. Kinda weird, imo.

Well, not wrecked wrecked, but insurance "totaled." It's certainly not stripped, w/leather seats and all sorts of goodies still very much visible.

Good assessment, the car has been T-boned from the passenger side, you can see the entire side has been pushed in slightly and the hood is buckled on that side as well.

It's T-Boned alright. Also, you can see that the rear edge of the rear passenger door bends out a little...

But why's the whole front taken apart when it's T-Boned?? Xenon, grill, bumper are gone...

i bet you that if its considered as 'stripped', those retards will use the parts for there honda civic or accord as a conversion or something.. if you go to any of those car shows... watch out! you may see it there..
i personally hate it they do that... its okay to be creative.. but not to the extent where it will look as if its an IS300 or altezza.. This is just my personal opinion.

also, if they stripped it for cash, they coulda got the seat also..and the rear tail lights? no pictures?
