sad face. Any chance of you just taking off the fun parts and doing a chassis swap?

No likely. I still have all of the cool parts, but I just don't think I can be bothered right now. I'll probably sell everything and come back to Miatas in a few years.

They didn't total it so there's nothing to "buy back." I'm shocked they wouldn't have totaled it.

It sounds like its bad enough that if he brought it to a shop they would have asked for more money than the ins claim, filled out some forms, and then the ins co would have totaled it.

There wasn't a buy back option because they never took it. I could have had the frame pulled, but I'm just burnt out on the project. I grabbed the parts off of it that I could sell easily, swapped the battery out so that I could send my Ballistic to TNTUBA for his race car, and sent it on his way.

The new owner bashed out the bulkhead and the trunk lid with a BFH, hung a stock exhaust manifold and a Borla exhaust on it, and has been driving it. It's crooked, but he doesn't care. I derive much more enjoyment from him having fun with the car than I have in the last couple years of driving three times a year, and it spending the rest of it's life in my way.

Like I said before, I'll buy another Miata some day. Just not today.
