I still can't understand why the front airbags didn't deploy with such a hard hit.

That's why. When the hit is TOO hard, the air bags do NOT deploy. The front airbags only deploy within a certain speed range. This range depends on the car make and model.
It could also mean that the front bags failed.

I think I saw this car and met the owner.. but he was working on rebuilding it.. ?

Maybe the car wasn't moving. that why the air bag didn't deploy.
to activate the airbag module. the module have to see 2 things. the speed and the impact sensor.

I have seen worse cars at bodyshop being rebuilt... You will see this car back on the road this is a given.
The only problem is that: Will it be done in a cheap way... or the right way...

the airbags DID blow, just, not the steering wheel ones..
musta been a side impact first.
