Yep, that up there is one sweet Audi Fox. Better than a bus ticket, right? Here's how Redditor Freesponge explained the whole misadventure.

I was driving through British Columbia when I hit an elk. I was driving a Saab 900 and the impact pushed the motor back into the firewall. Since the repairs would take 3 weeks I would have to get home some other way. The motel owners had a 1979 Audi Fox for sale. It had 152300 km on it and they wanted $500 for it. Much better than a greyhound in my opinion.

Read the whole r/cars thread right here. I think we can all agree that the Audi might have been more expensive than the Greyhound in the short run, but this guy made the right decision in getting the car.

There's a discrepancy in your reporting here, Raph. I want to know if this guy hit an benevolent, protective man who lives in a lodge or the antlered, four-legged, non-capitalized variety. The quotation you have here seems to indicate the latter but if this guy needs to be brought up for charges of vehicular homicide, I think we have a duty to act, even if it is Canada.
