Who knew Pontiacs were this stout

Was reading to the kids before bedtime last night on the back side of the house and heard what sounded like a large truck rumbling by. It was a strange enough sound I stopped reading and listens for a second but didn't hear much else.

A few minutes later my neighbor rang my doorbell and said she heard and saw this guy wreck. Dude didn't even stop she said. Spun out, smacked the boulder and then floored it leaving out the other end of the driveway.

Left behind a nice momento though lol. Can't believe he ran off on only 3 wheels.

From looking at what was hit he drifted off the side of the road and hit the mailboxes to the north of my driveway then must have spooked him and he over corrected and spun out into my rock.

So if anyone sees a early 2000s Pontiac Grand Prix with no passenger mirror and missing the driver's side rear tire let them know I have it.🤣

One on my Grand Am is bent, dibs if it’s a 15! Glad it was only property damage for you.
The best testament I ever saw to Pontiac toughness was a ride up Mt Saint Helens where there is a Gran prix flattened from the eruption, still wearing its Rallye 2’s.

It's a 16" and it is toast. The tire looks in good shape though if you need one lol

it can't be too hard to find, they had to of left a trail or grooves in the road by dragging a corner of the car.

The rock was knocked over into its side and pushed a foot or so from where it sat before. I flipped it upright with my tractor and pushed it back into place. So maybe 700lbs?
