Even though it is just a 2V, this car is my baby. I've spent a lot of time on it the last couple of years to keep it looking good, then this happens.
I was driving home from work Wednesday night and hadn't gotten far from the office (maybe 2 miles). There was an SUV in front of me that did not slow down to make an evasive lane change. By the time I saw the car he was avoiding and was able to stand on the brakes, I did not have enough room to stop. There were cars on both sides of me, so I would have hit something no matter what I did. For some reason, my lane was the only one that slowed before the impact.
I am meeting with the insurance adjuster tomorrow morning to see what the verdict is. I plan on fixing it no matter what insurance decides.
The more I think about it, the more I think I need to keep it and fix it. Like I said earlier, the fenders are straight (except for the tips), the body is straight, the gaps between the fenders and the hood are still good, and the suspension is untouched.
I think it's just time for a Cervini's 95 Cobra R style hood and 03/04 Cobra bumper cover.
BTW, I am open to different bumper covers. Not fully decided on the 03/04 and I know the 99/01 Cobra would look good as well.
That sux but it is totaly fixable. Can get a new rad support easy enough and the 03/04 bumper and hood are the best looking ones for those era cars IMHO. You will have her back in no time and lookin better then ever plus have some change in your pocket ....... maybe enough for a blower.
I am also sorry to hear this ... But I agree with the others. Buy it back and keep it. Even though it is officially "totalled" as per the DMV, it can still be a great car to own for a long, long time. Especially considering your mods. Just a thought ...
