I am sure you've already gone through the Fallen Flags site. If you want to invest more time, just about every large RR historical society has files of cars that were bad ordered due to structural failure or load shifting causing damage, and these tend to be what I view as the definitive resource for abused gons, if you're seriously interested.

Subject: [STMFC] Used and abused 40' gons
I'm looking for an on line source of pictures of used and abused 40' gons, you know, where the sides are all whopperjawed and they are sway backed. Any load and any road. Any suggestions? Thanks!
