man bro i feel your pain. i had the same thing happen to me in my red GT. it was the worst feeling in the world locking up the tires trying to stop and knowing there was nothing you could do but watch yourself plow into someone that pulled out infront of you. my car looked about as bad as yours, and luckily the insurance co wrote a 5000 dollar check to have it fixed. At first i was cited for the accident (because duh im a 17 yr old in a red mustang, wich obviously means its automatically my fault- right?) anyways we went to court over it and took a witness with me and judge dropped me of everything and found me not responsible for the accident. I then had an insurance adjuster come out and look everything over and he could tell it deffinatly was worth alot more than book value, so hopfully you can get your car fixed man. best of luck.

Is the frame bent? Mine was a tad but they were able to fix it.

Sorry to hear that man, that was one good lookin fox too. Glad your okay tho. Those fuggin old people cant drive for a ****.....Last february some old bytch pulled out infront of me, she didnt even try to stop, but my car wasnt as bad as yours, but they totalled it out, it was my winter beater tho. The good thing about mine is that i only paid 300 $ for it and they gave me 1200...
If its fixable, i say fix it....If the frame is gone, i'd transfer parts. Good luck bro, and let us know what your gonna do..

I know how you feel bro, I lost my pride and joy too, only took me a month and 200 bucks to get back into the 5.0 scene, just pick up the pieces and move on

sorry about the wreck. glad you did not get injured. make sure the insurance adjuster is aware of ALL the money/work you put in the car. just be honest about it, don't lie . take the money you get , fix it back better than ever & you will like it even more than before the wreck. good luck.

"ok my life is pretty much over."

It sucks that your car got wrecked dude but trust me....life goes on. Just be happy that it was only your car that got hurt.

Now there is only one thing to do. Get that insurance money and......upgrade

I wrecked my first car too bc a guy pulled out infront of me across 4 lanes of traffic to go to McDonalds. The car was totaled but I had the car appraised so they have to adjust the settlement for your car to what the car is worth now, so Have receipts ready
