    It looks like a decent parts vehicle for that price. Too bad the battery is toast.

    Yes it is:
    Mike Maloney's roadster totalled

    Too bad they didn't cover it, the seats and interior definitely could have been reused. Who knows what the state of the pack is, I'd say dead by now since the accident occurred before sept 2012.

    I hate seeing good batteries getting drained and bricked, going from totally usable to toast over a matter of months and lack of love.

    Strong possibly it still could have charged, the front and rear of the car's intact as well as the charge port. However I'm sure its a liability if they did plug it in, possible shock hazard.

    I know he had the full CF kit in that thing. Inside and out. You can see the tail CF and the front nose CF which if they're not damaged by now will eventually before getting used on something useful.

    KGrHqJhFC09TSWiBQz47NFc60_14.JPG Unbelievable, they slapped together the from left suspension together, a new front left wheel and dropped the broken hood on top of that hard hit Roadster of Mike's and jacked the price up 5k! I really hope someone doesn't believe that thing is rebuildable after that front end collision:
