    Sad to see but a number of them end up to be junked after crashed to provide results and improvement. A lot could be learned from these crashes but at least its necessary. If these cars were used in a demolition derby then tats where its a waste.

    Not sad at all, it's just an Acura ILX. If it was an NSX (which will eventually happen) then that would be sad! really sad!.

    If a number of cars have to be scrapped just so we can be safer, why not. I just hate seeing it happen when it's some flagship or legendary car.
