i don't really have my parts yet...

the insurance company hasn't sent anyone out to check out the damage... and they are going to send "investigators" out to see who is really at fault...

it cost like... 250$ to get from the wrecker yard :( my poor baby

If you have any stock parts for it, I'd start swaping asap before the insurance copany gets there.

it sucks man. I've been through this before on a custom car...and I've also had a 2.9l t3/t04e with a haltech e6k, quife 6-speed, bbs rs301 equipped dusty mauve corrado disappear on a flat bed according to my neighbors.

Step one is to get an insurance adjuster out. If they total it, offer to buy it back at salvage value. If you need help with this, contact me...daddy is in the auto salvage biz.

Then gut the car.

Buy another, and stuff everything in.

Don't sweat the investigators, they always send people out for **** like that. Also, get smart on the value for your area. Check your policy and see if they offer "fair market value" or "replacement cost." Get the black book value on the car, and discuss reality of replacement on these cars...because its not consistent with kbb values they will throw at you.

i talked to my insurance agent yesterday, she said that to them, i'm not at fault and she would file a claim against his insurance company.

As far as the cars value is concerned, i still have this:


as well as the entire ebay auction webpage saved on my computer. Think that would help?

Sorry to hear about your accident, Glad you're alright. I don't mean to be rude by asking so soon... but If you consider parting it out can I call dibs on the Roll bar?

well, i went through all the parts i could at thepartsgroup...

added them all up... but the frame is definitely bent. The soft top isnt tight anymore, so im assuming the back end bent up.

All the parts i would need add up to 2390 bucks... without shipping, and without labor. It's totaled.

Ouch, thats such a tough blow man. I was sort of wondering what happened with that. Good luck with the sale, I hope you can get what you are asking for, youve got some good parts on there like the Link, the full Greddy kit, Intercooler kit for the greddy, the roll bar, 1.8 rear with RX7 diff, etc. My Red car could use a paintjob and I really liked how yours turned out, so there may be a clone of yours rolling around cali someday
