R.I.P. my stang...

well, the first place we stopped for an estimate... the guy spent a total of maybe 2 minutes looking it over, asks what year it was... and says alright, hands me a paper saying "total loss"... the second place we go, the guy actually itemizes it.... total came to $8800 damage. I think it's as good as official...

Re: R.I.P. my stang...

Re: R.I.P. my stang...

I'm thinking a 99+ GT 'Vert 5 spd... ... triple black would be ideal. Either that or a silver one, again... of course, I wouldn't mind blue.

Re: R.I.P. my stang...

buy it back for salvage price and part out everything that's in decent shape (the rear end and other mods) be sure you site salvaging parts as the reason to your insurance co, or else they may try to drop you

why would you want taillights that say "i am equipped with teh anemic, sohc,
choking for air 4.6L"?


i agree. time for a GT. though id pass on a cobra, you know how it was treated by the previous owner/s, and your insurance is going to suck so bad you wont have much money afterwards to play with.

A) They look better.
B) He doesn't have a 4.6, so if someone is stupid enough to assume a car's year and engine off of only taillights, excluding the cobra badges, the obvious sound of a 5.0 vs a 4.6, etc, they deserve to get raped. By Michael Jackson.
C) They look better.
D) Sequential taillights.
E) They look better.

Re: R.I.P. my stang...

save up for a cobra, not much more, its well worth the extra dollars to get one, even though the 99-01 cobras are not that super fast by anymeans.

Re: R.I.P. my stang...

ooooook... adjustor was just here... he looks at the tires and goes "the v-6 can burn the tires?".... "yeeeees"... lol. The rear tires were 90% used... in all fairness, probably more than that... he wrote down all my mods though... $150 hood scoop.. $75 for the remaining side scoop, $225 for the rear bumper, $250 for the exhaust system... $1500 for the flames. I removed all my interior aluminum, or almost all of it. The car was in "good +" condition all around. 88,969.9 miles on the car.

Re: R.I.P. my stang...

i HIGHLY doubt they will pay 8k for repairs since the car is probably worth about that~ (dont include mods, they most definatly wont pay for your mods... unless you told them about them and had them adjust the insurance on it or at least not it on the car)

Re: R.I.P. my stang...

well, he wrote them all down... he said he didn't know if they'd give me anything for them... but it's not "impossible"... Also, he's checking around at dealerships for "fair market" price, and if they give him prices like they gave me... it'll be a decent amount.
