The ad says "the firefighters thought the doors were welded like the real GL and cut the roof off."    brickwall

He may be telling the truth.  Those C-pillars look bitten off, not cut through with a sawzall or torch.

That passenger door looks perfect.  Did they not even try the handle before assuming the doors were welded?

Maybe they cut the top off to use on LEE 1 after its top was cut off... smilielol

It reminds me of a news discussion on season 2 of the grand tour.

The hosts were joking about the frequency of roofs being cut off cars after minor accidents. In the end, the best reasoning they could come up with was that all men are over grown boys who will take any excuse to play with their toys, and in this case, the boys are firemen, and the toys are the cutting tools. They maybe right.

Such a shame, looks like it would have been a fixable car. I wonder if the driver was incapacitated, it looks like he could have walked out of it.

The real reason that firefighters cut the roof off a crashed car is because they deemed it necessary (judging by the crash impact damage) to keep the occupant's cervical spine in line. In order to do that, they put a neck brace on and slide the back board under the patient. Any door, roof or other items in the way of doing so will be removed.  It's cheaper to replace the car, than what a lifetime in a wheelchair because of paralyzation would cost. Once in the hospital after taking a cat scan/X rays, you can tell if it was necessary or not. But by then, it's a mute point.

If the point was silent, then yes. Otherwise, it's moot.  Twocents

How did you reach that conclusion from just seeing the pictures?

I'm just curious as I was an auto claims adjuster for 10 years and saw countless crashed vehicles and the ones where the jaws of life were needed or where a roof was cut off were much more destroyed than this Charger. Usually the car was upside down or so squashed that they couldn't access the driver or passenger.

Maybe because the C pillars look pinched rather than jagged like when you use a sawzall?

Yes, no doubt they hacked that thing off but I just am not convinced it was due to trying to prevent further injury.  Would love to know the back story on this one!!

Look at the stub of the vent window frame in the foreground (bottom right).  That looks more like hydraulic jaws than a saw or torch/plasma.  

Who keeps a hydraulic jaws setup at home and uses it for parting out junk cars?  

Whatever the reason, the roof removal must have been done by the accident rescuers.

my point is that this wreck doesn't match the cars Ive seen where jaws of life were needed.  The seats don't even look bent, usually they are twisted or bent.

The cars I see where the use the jaws usually look like this...

My reply was to JR, about him saying that "firefighters take any excuse to play with their toys."  I wasn't talking about this car in particular and I didn't reach a conclusion.  I was a professional firefighter longer than you were an auto claims adjuster and I've been there, done that, got the T-shirt and certification so I'm not just talking poopoo.
