The hits literally keep on coming with this installment of our vintage carnage series featuring cool gearhead stuff, wrecks, and funny news clippings saved by our grandfather in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Ever seen a military BARC? You need to. Here goes.
For past editions of this kind of carnage, click below:
Part 1: A fire, a sinkhole, and a car carrier up-ended
in a lake
Part 2: A car falling off the front of a carrier, a car
dragged from a lake, a dump truck hanging from a bridge.
Part 3: ’50s unintended acceleration, brick truck on
its side, and a bonus: paving the banks of the Milford Proving Grounds
Part 4: Head-on into trees, oil-truck fires, a stunt
gone wrong, and a car rolling 12 times.
Part 5: Five-car pileup, train versus car, exploding
Part 6: Wrecks, lumber-truck rollover, driver trapped
in a truck cab.
7: Truck burning, cars flying, truck hanging off a bridge
Disappointed that the older links didn’t work… But still cool nonetheless
Stop pick’en on 1949!
