Summernats 2013 - Dreams smashed in seconds

Updated with new photo and more info.

You have a dream, of a unique car you can work on and make something special, that others will admire. You spend over five years achieving that dream, then you are involved in a five car traffic incident - and your dream becomes a write-off. I just hope no one was seriously injured. 

Update: I have been told that a car braked in front of the Commodore, he braked in time and missed colliding with the car that braked suddenly. The Territory driver did not. Even worse, the Territory had a ride on mower in a trailer, and that left the trailer and entered the back of the Territory. This entire mass collided with the Commodore, pushing it into the car in front. 

Is there any good news? Yes - two passengers had been in the back of the Commodore, they had exited the car only a few minutes before the collision.
