Apparently the girl who hit my car was rounding the turn when her starbucks fell out of the cupholder and spilled on the floor of her honda civic hatch. She brilliantly decided to reach down and **** with it instead of driving (excellent decision) and when she looked up there was my car no brakes no evasion just full on smackage. So there it sitswhile im dealing with the insurance to get my claim dealt with. Feel for me fellow miata brethren and be careful where you park your car! (should be back soon with another miata)


Dude sorry about your car man.... my car just got totaled last Wednesday. Hope things work out.

I have a complete extra rear subframe with arms if you do decide to repair it. Also a rear bumper. At least your side skirts and rear spoiler are untouched.

Damn, that sucks about your car... but on a brighter note, those side skirts are awesome. What kind are they?

Ha, I was thinking about getting a GSR myself before i got my miata. After going to the forums and seeing TWO "my car was stolen" threads both within 50 miles of me, i decided ill pass on it.

Honestly, the damage doesn't look that bad. The LCA, UCA and shock are toast, the rear subframe might not be since the hob broke away. It's much easier to bend the LCA then the subframe. I guess it's going to come down to the condition/mileage of your car to if it gets totaled or not.

What i find funny is i bet since she was probably reaching down and was not sitting upright upon impact, she probably made new friends with the dashboard/steering wheel/airbag in her car.

Damn that sucks... pull your parts and get a low mileage miata. The swapping thing isnt as much fun as people say it is Neither would be repairing that rear quarter panel, which really means welding sheet metal onto it.

Unfortunately an 18 year old sub-20k car in any condition is likely going to be totaled if there's non-removable panel damage like that fender.

with out a doubt that's totalled. Get the insurance money, buy the car back, keep what you want and sell the rest as a whole or parts and get another one. A GSR might get stolen and your insurance will be higher than a miata because of how likely that is.

about 3 yrs ago i had nearly the exact same thing happen to me.

my mom woke me up and told me to come outside. when i did get outside i found a flipped over (yes FLIPPED over car in front of my house on my "residential" street) car and a young girl on the curb crying. she supposedly fell asleep and used the left rear tire on my car as a ramp. my damage was similar to yours but not nearly as extensive. They totalled mine. unfortunately i didn't know **** about cars then and didn't buy the salvage title. i lost my *** on that deal.

but my girl was hot.
