Yep, anyone expecting to take delivery in Pensacola, Foley/Gulf Shores, Montgomery, Mobile, or possibly NOLA, is likely to be a little worried right now.

If it had to happen, hopefully they're all unsold, dealer stock vehicles.

Like another thread floating around here....

As has been said, I hope these weren't SO deliveries. That would
suck for someone expecting to have their new ride.

Looks like the dump truck came up on the car carrier a little to fast and when changed lane he forgot he was not drive a vette

What a new car with a damage report on the Carfax,
...

I am positive the entire load will be totaled and GM will get a check for all vets from the trucking company's insurance company. GM will make sure the cars are crushed.
