Drivers can be replaced with more competent ones.

And if Stig died?

Pretty much all of a car is replaceable (it may not be cost-effective to; but it's all replaceable), unlike a human (atleast most of us), cars were made in factories as near carbon-copies of eachother, if a door on one Accord smashes off its' hinges, another Accord has a door to fit the bill. Rear left brake rotor warped? Another Accord has a rear left brake rotor almost the same to fit the bill.

Everything is replaceable pretty much.

Edit: Forgot to mention it, but Kenny has about the only part. The entirety (not partial) of the body in a unibody is irreplaceable. If you tried to replace it, it'd be like trying to replace the foundation of a house. It really cant be done; once it's there, its there. It can be repaired, but if its gone, its gone.

Any part of a vehicle can be replaced. As mentioned earlier, there comes a point where maintenance costs and repair work outweigh the price of buying something new. In this case, get rid of the maintenance hog and buy a new vehicle. This holds true for semi's also.

I'd put a frame under my F150 if I needed to because of sentimental value, for example.
Upset for you. You should lift the vin up and place a new F150 under it. Cheaper then restoring that old girl. Although what ever happen to your 460 that was going in?
