Welcome to houston. A friend of mine was in the left turn lane, stopped and waiting to turn into a parking lot. A dumb *** female pulled out to use the turn lane to merge into traffic and plowed right into the front of his '99. Same story, the cop gave him a form and left. Let me know when you part out... I'm interested in the radiator and the cat-back.

PM him before anybody even posted Of course it's up to the owner, who he sells to.

Is Texas a no-fault state or something? We got rear-ended in Dallas and that's all the cop did for us too was give us a form. No report, no nothing.

New York is a no-fault state and when my car was wrecked last summer the cop still filed an accident report. Someone was being lazy unless the laws are completely wacked.

Texas is not a no fault state... we just have a **** ton of lazy ******* cops.

PM about exhaust pending.

If you doesn't want to deal with shipping I take local dibs on the radiator

**** man, still feel sorry for you doug. If i still lived down there we would be buying another shell and doing a build, not parting =(.


Sugarland is a pretty small town, i'm surprised some of you have lived/worked there.

Still talking with the insurance company and faxing receipts to them, but a little update. The other car is either stolen or not ensured.... which everything makes sense now as to why she was acting so sketchy. It should be another day or say before I have time to go through the pms and the car part stuff.

Also I was talknig to the insurance company about the whole cop thing and they said in Texas if no one was hurt, then they don't file a report usually and just give you a form.

A sore shoulder from a seatbelt will heal up okay, but if your neck is sore then I'd say you were hurt. After my sister's car got smashed at a stoplight, her neck was sore for about three months. Hope yours isn't as bad. But it's something you might mention to the insurance, and definitely go see a doc if it hurts after a few days.

As for the insurance company, you're not going to have a whole lot of luck getting them to fully reimburse you for the mods to your car if you only paid premiums based on the value of a stock Miata. If you had a stated value policy covering the additional cost of your turbo build then it would be a different situation. If they're really lowballing you, get the edmunds, KBB, NADA values of your car, and prices comparable cars sold for in your area, and you can at least work them up to what a nice stock car would be worth.

I think the probability of having your Miata smashed is inversely proportional to the elapsed time since last maintenance. My car was hit by an aimless old lady not 5 minutes after I had finished up at a club tech session at the local Mazda dealership.

I was in H-town for grad school from '99-'03 and have been to Sugarland several times. In addition to lazy cops, that area has a **** ton of uninsured drivers.

Man, I lived in Sugarland for almost 9 years...I was surprised when you said you live there because it's not very big. I now live in San Antonio but have family in Houston who could maybe pick up some stuff for me if you part it.
Make sure you post up a thread when your getting rid of everything!
Sorry to hear about the accident and I hope your neck has a speedy recovery.

I will also be happy to help you out by meeting halfway as long as the parts fit into a miata.

Ok guys, finally got done with insurance... I am getting $3,000 after buying the car back. It looks like I am selling the car as a whole to a friend. This really is the best thing for me to do, because I need a form of transportation right now and I do not have time to be coming home to Houston all the way from San Antonio to part out the car. It will be to difficult for me to do. Sorry to get yalls hopes up about the parts ....

Well, I hope you get this sorted soon and get some transport.

And next time it looks like you're gonna crash hit the gas and smash those up good!
