Damaged In Transit

“A Bad Accident.  No one was killed and no one was hurt, no one had seat belts on either.  It all happened on a trip from England to Jacksonville, Florida.  These cars were on a ship and they got into a bad storm.  Result, the cars broke away from their chains and bounced together and it was a complete total, all 150 cars.”  LS

They just need a little body work, a fresh coat of paint… Is that an Austin-Healey at the bottom of the frame?

    Ha! That’s unreal. I really enjoy these photos. Do you have a flickr account where you upload them too?

      Glad you enjoy them. The images in the Loyd Sandgren collection are copyright protected and their use is controlled by the photographer’s family with Vintage Jacksonville acting as the family’s representative. They are not in the public domain. Sites such as Flickr make it next to impossible to control where and how the photographs are used.
