    Bad day for him and everyone else that get that lane. Looks like the whole housing broke.

    The good part is that the car does hook.

    I wonder what kind or rear end was in that car. If a factory one, breakage like that is normal. If it was some kind of heavy duty replacement, then, it probably shouldn't have happened.

    Looking at the pinion, that was a Ford 9" rear. I would make a trophy out of that, after getting over the costs of replacing the broken parts.

    You would think a Ford 9" would have withstood that punishment. But, they don't always survive no matter how strong they are.
