Default My Bad Day is still going!

Well the car is in the shop estimate to fix body damages is $2500.00 ouch. The real bad news is the car pulls left and shakes real bad after the wreck. It is at the shop to check on that and guess what there are no cradle mounts left on the car and the engine cradle is broken in 2 pieces. The bill so far on that is $800.00 plus. The insurance adjuster was going to total my car out and pay me $1400.00 for it and take my ride! I said like hell I just bought her not less than 30 days ago and she was minty when I got here except for a few things. I showed him the bill of sale and he said he would just give me a check for what I paid and he would let me keep the car. Wow so I am getting the engine stuff fixed and then I will figure out what to do with the wrecked body parts next. I am thinking about buying junk yard parts and fixing her myself over the summer and then just getting her painted. Let me know what you all think? Thanks and better days for my Little Bonnie.

Basically, you got a free ride. Fix it or part it, the choice is yours.

maybe you could swap a series II into it, that'd be cool. I dont know how hard that would be but it would be really cool.
