my baby got hit

yup my baby got hit :/ i was turning left and the guy blew threw a stop sign and slammed in to me...would have hit the cab if i didnt drop it a gear and floor it. my guess is insurance is going to total it...but i will buy her back and do a flat bed with some full widths under her....still a sad day...she was soooo clean.
to make things more interesting....guess what hit me

Is she wrote off? Chassis damage? Im calling the eldery on this collision. Damn that sucks dude. Insurance should clear this up. Running a stop sign is serious matter. Case closed in favour for you buds.

Dude... bummer. All that hard work :( You could always strip your goodies off of it and put it on another ranger/b-series. Sucks either way tho... but at least you're not hurt.

Sorry to hear brother, but when life gives you lemons, at least you're going to make lemonade!

Its going to look sick with full widths and a flat bed. Just please do a good flat bed, not some white trash hack job.

so gut the son of a ***** before it goes.

Although, I have bought a couple cars back from the Insurance Company, and it was 75% of the trade in value of the stock vehicle with no modifications. Maybe your insurance company is different, but i doubt it. That was with State Farm and Progressive

rear end damage is always the easiest. Your truck is a 94, so you are looking at around 1000 bucks to buy the truck back.
