Re: Terrible news, New pipe to no pipe?!
Good to hear he is fine. However, the pipe probably is not. When you get rear ended at 30 MPH and you are stopped, foot on the brakes, your trunk is likely to take up most of your backseat. At least that is what happened to a friend and I who had our clubs in the trunk - which didn't survive and were eventually replaced. Now at 60 MPH your experience exponentially more force and who knows where the trunk would end up - unless you drive a tank.
