It’s always cringeworthy when you hear of someone’s pride and joy getting wrecked. It’s seriously cringeworthy when you make the paper with your own hot rod’s accident. The driver of this particular Ford found out the latter after an accident near Bay of Plenty, New Zealand. The driver was returning home from the annual Winter Blast Rod Run when he struck a center median and wound up parked in the middle of a lane. He waited twenty minutes for a tow truck to remove him from traffic, and the onlookers. Damage looks limited to the front end and a popped bead on the back tire. As long as there isn’t any damage to the oil or transmission pan, this rod should hopefully be back on it’s feet soon.
