Talking Hi, new from Connecticut

Hello,

Bought a 97 a few weeks ago, itís pretty clean, mosty garage kept but has a dent in the frame close to the front drivers side door earning it a rebuild title. Itís still really fun to drive and so far have only gotten around to preforming routine maintenance. I do plan on adding a turbo eventually as well as plenty other modtastic goodness. End goal of this car is to push this car until the frame breaks and then save what I can, put it on a good frame, and then build a decent track car. Until then Iím just going to tinker and learn everything I can.

Welcome to the forum. Pictures of frame damage? I'm curious what you are dealing with.

And pictures of your cats.

I am honestly a bit puzzled. Was that the *only* damage to the car? Are the gaps fore and aft of the door (between the door and the rest of the body) still even along their length?

I'm having a hard time accepting that that crease alone was enough to justify totaling the vehicle.

Default Damage details

No gaps, front bumper, and left fender were replaced, the right door was repainted but I don't know if it was a replacement or not. Anything else I would half to remove the fender. In the current condition, its hard to find a reason for it being left for dead by an insurance company and I assume there is more damage I'm unaware of but ill find later. Heres a side shot.
