A total loss. R.I.P Raven

Walked away from this accident with only minor cuts and bruises. I hit and knocked over a telephone pole and knocked off about 25 feet or railing.

Walking away makes it awesome. Did that with a wreck of my own...

That said, might want to see if you can scavenge anything like that intake to get some money back.

There have been several wreck threads lately, everyone has been very fortunate to suffer only minor injuries.. Glad everyone is ok, cars are tin and rubber and can be replaced..

A friendly reminder to all my stang riders. The road may be wet or maybe filled with snow, all it takes is just one turn and this can be you. Please be careful and cautions.

I know it's really scary! And you're right thankfully everyone is okay.

You walked away to live another day (or two). Good to see.

Remember, that new GT you get has a whole lot more punch. Be careful, and enjoy!

Dealing with the insurance now, and they are still deciding if it's a total loss. I'm not too sure if I want the same car again due to the body damage. Once your bone breaks, it will never heal the same

Not only that, but a Carfax will show this car with damage; drops it's resale value. That hurts when you go to sell it. Sucks, especially if the accedent was not your fault.

For this reason, I hope they total it for you.

No kidding especially this one. Your probably looking at best moderate damage on CarFax but probably severe. Hopefully the insurance company will total it. I don't see why they wouldn't it's going to cost them a lot

U should take ur aftermarket parts off and sell them! If its still in your possession . Or keep them for your next ride unless your insurance covers them

Most insurance companies give you a day to go and remove specialty parts assuming you did not add then to your policy; this would then factor into their payout.

Progressive did this when my son's truck was totalled. He kept the stock rims and tires, so we were able to swap them out at the body shop right before it went to the boneyard.

For this reason, consider keeping the stock parts you remove, so you can swap them out, such as rims/tires, etc. Small cosmetic type parts will most likely not be "missed".
