    I got out with only a bruised knuckle. Cruising 60 mph, an 85 year old man in a pick up truck attempted to cross from a 2 way stop ahead of me. I had no time to react. I hit head on behind his drivers side door. Boom, airbag, car spun around into gaurdrail. Took the car out to vacuum the interior on a nice sunny Friday afternoon. Drive safe!

    the car was looked at by my insurance adjuster. It is totaled. I decided to just let it go. I don't have the time or desire to strip it down and sell parts. They are sending me a check and i'll wash my hands of it.
    The whole car is bent. The impact was all in front, yet the roof and rear quarters buckled, too. The impact force went straight through it.

    i'm sure someone will get a nice deal on the engine/blower combo, assuming it's ok.

    First, thank God you walked away from that.
    Second, sorry about the car.
    Third, prepare yourself. Unless you have classic insurance on the car, the insurance company is going to try and offer you a ridiculous low amount for the car. You may want to consider telling them you want to buy back the car, as I am sure the price of the mods is worth much more than what the offer is going to be. You could then sell off the parts and probably make some $$$. I know today you are still in shock and probably don't want to see the car all wrecked but it's something to think about.

    I had classic coverage on the car at an agreed value. This happened about 3 weeks ago. As of yesterday, I received a check from my insurance company for the full agreed amount.
    I was given the option to keep the car. If I were to go that route, the adjuster would determine a salvage value for the car. In turn, I would get a check for the original agreed value less the salvage value. I just had no interest in parting it out. Plus, the last thing I want to see sitting in my garage are those mangled remains.
    I used Philadelphia Insurance Co. and I could not be happier with their handling of this claim. If any of you guys are considering classic insurance, I definitely recommend them.

    What a shame. I'm glad everyone was okay though. Do you plan on getting into another fox or was wiping your hands clean referring to all foxes?
