I was going... hmmm 35, they turned left in front of me... I was able to skid to about 10-15 MPH before hitting them. 100% their fault, left turn is supposed to yield to oncoming traffic.
So what does this all mean?
My drivers fender has a slight bend to it, no sharp crease though, I actually kicked it back in at the scene (but pulled it back out when I got home so the body shop makes and accurate estimate)
The bumper is a little wrinkled and the black trim on the fender got loosened a bit.
Basically all I need to do is fit on a mudrat front bumper and kick the fender once and its fixed... Maybe I can milk enough insurance money from the other party to get front and rear bumpers from John
Or maybe I will buy andrew a white bumper for his turbowagon and put his black bumper on my car.
Oh ya, the civic REALLY needs a new front bumper, my bumper left a dent like 2 inches deep in it and like a foot wide
So the suby won... the right front fender gets a Civic bogey sticker for this one... Hondas beware!!
Both parties were uninjured

The car is "totaled"
Meaning.... they should pay me off (he he I can fight for a $2000+ value cause of the new parts and mods)
Then I can buy it back for afew hundred bucks and lift it
See related thread... please tell me what my car is worth in your opinion (like what you would pay for it if the crash didnt happen AND you had the money hypothetically)

I am the head adjuster for your insurance company and have just printed your tell-all account. Please expect a check for $2.95, the price of a can of Krylon. Yes, that's right. We're springing for the best for you. Enjoy. (Be careful what you write in a public forum).

I am going to fight for a value around $2000 for the car simply for the fact that the car is at heart a 93K mile GL (93K on engine, and new everything else pretty much... so to recreate a car this nice I would either have to start with a 274K POS ($500) and put on new parts, (costing around $1500) to recreate a car very similar to mine... and thats not including stuff like the rims, CB, seats, shifter, and the 6 years of receipts (in a HUGE envelope)
But still good advice...
