No, you must mourn for your car and worry about something you have no control over at the moment.

You can tow it to my shop... we would have to make room... if the yard is open tomorrow and will tow it there.


Or wait until monday and try and figure something out then.

Yes, get the car now. I went through this earlier this year...you own the car, not the insurance company. They take ownership when you agree to the terms of the settlement via signature.

Get that **** out ASAP. When mine was totaled I had to pay "storage" fees plus the towing and a bunch of bs and I was not at fault. When I checked the car out someone tried to remove my radio.

I remember I immediately disconnected my MS, wideband, and some other **** I had around at the scene of the accident.

Yup, get it back and start stripping anything of value before they take it to the auction lot. Even if 3 wheels are good take them, etc. This will make the switch to the next car way cheaper. Remember what Hustler said, Its your car until they pay you whats owed.

yup! get that **** now.

If it has a torsen, find a open diff and swap it out so you will have a torsen for the next miata. You said it has coilovers, even if one is FUBAR take them anyway.

When a friend of mine wrecked his 03 I told him to get it towed to his house immediatly. We swapped my 5-speed out for his 6-speed and my open diff for his T-F diff. I also got sport brakes cause the steelies he had wouldnt fit over the brakes so we swapped those too.
