I like how they appeared to have wrecked this car. The doors, hood and fender are intact just removed. I can't imagine how the car was supposed to have gotten up there without any damage to the porch.

If you look closely, you can see that the doors are ponton doors.

Ok you guys mave made be feel a bit better, knowing they didn't just destroy an old car.

I've noticed the cars on HH are in generally average to poor condition, dents, engines blow smoke,

hopefully they are still around and haven't been destroyed.


I am curious what they used to make fake snow, in different shows you see it on the cars, hopefully not salt!

Most movies (at least in the old days) used soap flakes (laundry detergent) for fake snow.  I've also seen soap foam used which is easy to identify by the way it blows in the wind.
