    Sorry to see that I lost my first T/A an Arctic White '99, due to some idiot goin straight thru a turnin lane. I really hope there's not alot of frame damage so you can get her back on the road. Stupid drivers, I really wish a person was allowed to punch them in the face....

    Sorry too hear about your car

    I guess the laws are different down there?

    In Canada if you have a lein on a car you must have full coverage the lending institution requires it.

    Maybe its a state thing...you have to have full-coverage on a car with a loan here as well.

    It depends, mine had frame damage to a rear rail or something and they were able to straighten it. How many miles were on it?

    Thats what i LOVE about Texas insurance is dirt cheap,even if you get full coverage,with these cars its a must to have full coverage on these fbodys,but i know everybody cant afford it,but without it we stand to lose too much

    sorry for your situation. i hope you get taken care of.

    simply looking at the pics, they will total it. radiator core support damge is frame damage and the amount of time to simply pull it, will cost a pretty $$$.

    best senario for you would be to have them total it out/hopefully they pay off what you owe and you try to buy the car back to part out.

    good luck, and again, sorry for your loss

    with, as he put it, close to 150k on the car, it's not worth it. there is simply to much damage.

    That sucks man. I would buy it back and sell it for someone else to part out haha. Don't let them short you on what your car was worth if it is totaled. Insurance companies are the worst.

    don't know if this will relate to your situation at all, but 5 years ago my Brother was T-Boned at 60mph by a 16 year old that ran a red light, he (my brother) was driving his souped up '97 240SX, it was obvious it was going to be totaled but the way the insurance company worked it would pay for replacement value of the car not any upgrades/modifications made to the car unless he had reciepts, so while the insurance companies decided what they were doing we bailed the car out of the impund/tow yard and stripped all the salvageable aftermarket parts back off it, it was totaled out and they towed it away to scrap it a week later. He was able to get paid a couple thousand more for the pieces he did have reciepts for and made an additional couple thousand on the parts we were able to strip before it was scrapped. It had aftermarket 17" rims when it got hit, it had 16" stock rims with bald tires when it was scrapped, turbo and custom made exhaust manifold removed and sold, aftermarket radio, stainless ehxaust all removed and resold.

    I am not advocating insurance fraud by any means, but when you have thousands more into your car than the insurance company is going to cover I see this as a legitimate option.

    Sorry to hear that man. I know how it feels to be in an accident when its not your fault. Do you know what they are going to give you for it?

    As a previous poster stated, ask to buy it back. They should give you what the salvage value is for the vehicle. Try to negotiate that value down if you can. Now keep in mind some insurance companies will not or only provide limited coverage for a car that was previously deemed totaled. Also, to help fight to keep your car, do some research and find out how much a replacement would cost and ask the insurance for the money to buy it. If they offer less than the cost of an average car with the same specs, mileage, etc as your car, then you have some leverage to keep it. Good luck with it.
