Some sort of structure failure on the MBB's will force their retirement,NYCTA had a whole fleet of cars retired way before their time due to structure issues.
Remember they were put away wet at Seaview not prepped for long term storage.

Your crystal ball is broken. There are no structural issues with the fleet.

That's correct. I mentioned the wreck to point out that the incident which inadvertently caused those cars to be removed from the south side involved one of them, though you're right to point out that its involvement was not a contributing factor.
