diesel Colorado at Riley Chevrolet in Jefferson City, Mo tornado damage...

Looks like someone's diesel Colorado was up on a lift with the motor out of the truck when a tornado leveled the dealership. Here's a screenshot of the local KC news crew coverage of the damage at the Jefferson City dealership.

Much more than the engine missing from that truck, the body was lifted off the frame for some sort of work. Still crazy what happened to the dealership.

Hopefully this means a new truck for the lucky owner. No box on the truck either. I wonder if the truck was rear ended hard and is getting a new frame?

Hopefully it wasn't another blown motor. I'm guessing they lifted the cab off to get access to do the motor work.

Pure speculation.

That would suck. Having to put your truck in the shop for major work, and then have a tornado come through and destroy it.

Maybe the engine was in the truck before the tornado hit!

We has a Chevy dealer here in Shelby Ohio get hit with similar results from a Tornado this spring.

It took out the service department roof and walls but cars still on the lift and tool boxes standing.

Crazy how Tornados do things.

I did note the Tacos took the greatest hit here. Does that mean God hates Taco’s?

Scary stuff...vehicles can be replaced, but people can't. Prayers for everyone involved in this spring's violent storm season start. Another bad twister in OK last night...
