PostSubject: Heres the scoop on my accident   Tue Aug 24, 2010 4:34 pm

After getting home after the meet Mary and I were relaxing on the couch trying to find something on TV to watch and of coarse all those channels and nothing on Laughing The dogs started to bark at something......we didn't even get up just go the dogs to quite down. About 9:15 we decided to head to the store, grab some popcorn and a Redbox movie. We walk out to find a Sebring sitting on the front of my car. I made the mistake of not taking pics at that point in time but I have some after the fact pics. Long story short, after about 30 minutes of arguing with the owner the next morning (after using Mid America Motorworks catalog to make a "cash" estimate) about the $714 for a front apron and hood with only 3 hours labor I finally got her insurance information because "I was trying to rip her off and get a new car". She felt that "maybe $200 would fix it. Ive owned one of those". So now I wait for her insurance company to come out and give me an estimate. I will also be heading down to Niello for an estimate Twisted Evil That one ot to be closer to a great $1500 mark Twisted Evil

Heres some pics of the damage:

Of coarse no damage to her car. Maybe a slight mark where her hole car was sitting on my hood handle!! crushing my car Evil or Very Mad

Totalled. Twisted Evil

$1500 for a shop to fix. "Blue book Value" is probably $500.

When my car was BRAND new, I got backed into at the parking lot of my work..... thankfully my alarm went off and my customers stopped this person.... then a good friend of mine had to come tell me my car had been backed into. Lady produces insurance and ID and all that, I take all that down, for her to actually call me back like 30 minutes later and say her "husband had canceled her insurance without knowing..... blah blah" Anyways, thankfully my insurance fixed my car to factory spec (with Niello parts) and went after her for the money with no effort from me, including me getting a rental car for a week. I was lucky in many ways with that one.

The adjuster came out yesturday to take a look at the damages. I haven't heard anything yet but, Tim at the shop (for repairs) told me not to hold my breathe but maybe looking at $1800 ballpark. That would be awesome. Enough to put the beam extension on it and get 2 steering extension (one for both cars) and give me a little more to put toward the rat builder. cheers

Must be accident time, my 07 Chevy 2500HD was parked last Friday and hit by a Garbage truck, the first estimate was $5200, and now I just found out that my wheels have been discontinued so the price will go up from here with 4 wheels instead of One. What a pain, and I use this truck for work, well, use to anyway.

Heard from the adjuster late last week. It took a while to "get a value" of the car. I printed off about half a dozen ratrods for sale that I found on thesamba for referance. They ranged from $4000-9000. Mine is VERY ORIGINAL being a Baja/rat Twisted Evil

He said that the car is repairable and approved the partial estimate that I got of $1307. I talked to the shop to see if they can complete the estimate so I can get a few more $$$. We'll see. havent heard anything yet.


Sounds like a trend has started......THAT SUCKS!!!! I hope nobody else has any problems.

OH YA!!!!! cheers Twisted Evil Very Happy

Just got a check from her insurance company for $1737.60.

That should be more that enough to get done what I wanted to do.
Now time to order parts and maybe just maybe I'll be able to get it done by the next meet. Hopefully by the Apple Hill run. Laughing Very Happy Smile

Thank you so much Tim at Family Automotive (next door).
