It's totaled part it out. That sucks.

I would then take the money and pay it off.

I've made a lot of money selling off my stock parts.

I just got 600 for my seats alone.

Well I didn't want to mention the part where I left my key in the door. I was ironically avoiding driving drunk but I left the key in the door lock.


So yes they used my key. Most of this was my own stupidity. Jokes may now be made whenever you're ready!

Anyway I'm getting the car repaired out of pocket. Looking at $700 to just straighten out and reinforce the frame. Then I'm buying the fender, door, and a pillar cover from a part out.

Then ill repaint it in a few months.

Well that explains how they got by the PATS. Look on the bright side, insurance would not have paid anyway...

Yep I had to also deal with the police thinking I was committing insurance fraud. Is it weird that I'm kind of excited about rebuilding her. I'm too optimistic about it.

I had not thought of that; in an odd twist it is good that you did not have theft insurance--that would have opened up another whole can-of-worms...

Police have video of them losing control of the car around a curve while raining. Hit a tree, got out and ran away. The video footage is shoddy because its really far away and dark out its a home owners outside cameras.

Good move on your part.

Don't feel bad. I did the same thing with my '94 Jeep Wrangler when I was a teenager. I was drunk and this was after I already drove to a friends house to sleep it off. ...and have sex! Lol

I used the key to unlock the door on her side. Which was really her fault because I normally didn't even have the doors on but she was one of those chicks that wanted the top on. Blah!

So I left the key in the passenger side door by morning, it was gone.

Luckily for me my Jeep was a char bucket when they recovered it and it was completely gutted. No steering column. It was barely even a frame, everything was a melted plastic pool under the harbor bridge.

But it sounds like you're looking forward to piecing it back together. That's good. I wish ya the best of luck.

Thanks man I appreciate the story. Well when I was really young my brother had a jeep wrangler. Drove home trashed as trashed could be. Flipped his jeep 5 times, crawled out. Walked home. Told police in the morning he had no idea what happened to it he was sleeping home all night.

$400 of damage to the whole jeep. Tow truck flipped it and he got off no issues.


So I understand why they think I did it, but unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you look at it I didn't do it!

I appreciate and applaud your decision to not drive drunk, our daughter (my step-daughter) was killed by a drunk driver in 1998.



This is going to cost you some money, it could have turned out costing someone else their life...

I'm so sorry to hear that man. It's definitely opened my eyes to drunk driving. Thanks for sharing that man people never worry about drinking and driving until the ramifications

+1 I feel your pain. My first car was a 93 cobra and it was stolen and striped and I had no theft because I didnt have the money for it having just dropped 8500 on the car. You should be able to sell as a donor car for at least 2500 which will pay off your loan. But dont feel too bad, for every end there is a new begining. Finance a cobra this time.

So to update everyone sometime next week my car will be off to a body shop to have the frame work done and new body parts installed. It's been a lot of back and forth with several body shops and Frame guys..but I think I have a good specialist now who came recommended from someone who builds repairs and does body work on Chevys.

Yea I know...chevy guys. Oh well.

Anyway I've been all over Miami looking for a windshield, door, a pillar cover and now I'm stuck.

I can't find a cheap rocker panel. So if anyone sees a good one on eBay or selling one passenger side on any classified please pass me the information.

Thanks everyone
