In the Winter of 2008, this storage building in the countryside just outside Munich, Germany, collapsed under heavy snow.



Part of the site was subsequently cleared, but as the building wasn't really used for anything else than to store several old cars, and no-one wanted the land it was built on, most of it was just left to rot.



No-one was hurt. No-one, unless you take a closer look, that is.



What a pity. Of all the deaths a 9C1 could die (and it IS a 9C1), being caught in a building collapse in Germany seems to be among the most unlikely.

That is sad. Is the car still there?

When my brother moved back from Germany after his divorce, he decided to leave behind a 1970 Root beer brown 4spd GTO with Cragar SS wheels. I loved that car, It was cool watching my brother drive it on the Autobahn at 100+mph as we headed to Switzerland a few times.
Anyways, he had sold it to a friend, and it was hit and totaled by a runaway truck outside of his friends apartment building.
Just another classic destroyed. No

The pictures betray the true size of that building. It must have been big enough to comfortably park 30 cars in it, and the Caprice is buried deep inside the pile. It's been a while since I've been there, but my guess is it is still there. There was so much weight on it, the frame rails were actually flat on the ground.

You'd need a bulldozer to get it out.

What a waste. You can probably imagine how incredibly rare a 1970 GTO is over here. That makes it even worse. Where in Germany did this happen? Heading for Switzerland, you guys could not have been that far away from Stuttgart?

I shouldn't have gone digging for those pictures... I came across a few more unpleasant memories.

There never was an Export-SS for Europe, but German GM Dealers brought over a handful US-spec cars. Here's one of the very, very, very few Impala SS that were delivered to Germany when new. First owner car, had been with him for 12 years from new, rear-ended and totaled by some truck driver who wasn't paying attention. And it's not like you can just go and find another one over here...



This story is even worse. A friend of mine bought this 9C1 on ebay, had a lot of trouble with the seller (who felt like keeping the car AND the money), finally managed to bring the car over after several months, went to pick it up from the harbor terminal, drove about 1.2 miles to the Autobahn, hit the gas - and the hose clamp holding the badly installed cold air intake caught the throttle actuator and locked it at WOT.



How bad ist that, waiting for 6 months, then terminating your new ownership after a mere 1.2 miles and not even getting a cent from your insurance.

He lived in Nied, Frankfurt. The accident happened at the apartment parking lot.
