Default Bonnie down

Well, long story short, was having a guy replace my cracked and shot trans and he smashed it 30 minutes after picking it up. He didn't tell me at all. I found out from a friend that saw it sitting in a trans shop on the west side of Detroit, which is where it had been sitting for a week and a half. It was towed there by the guy who was supposed to work on it and left. I picked it up with no problem, considering the owner of the shop didn't know what to do with it, and this is what was waiting for me.

He rearended a mini van. The frame is bent down approx. 4-5 inches at the bumper and the rad support is totally destroyed. There'* alot more than that. All estimates so far from $6,000 to $10,000. I'm sueing the guy for the amount of the car, which is around $5,000. After the court stuff is done, i'll be parting it out. Already bought a car for now, but the money will be used as a down payment on something newer and more suitable to my needs as I like camping and anything outside, it will probably be an Aztek AWD or small SUV.

The rims will be staying with me, cuz I have a 93 GP they will fit and if I go with the Aztek, the rims will fit on it.

Damn, that thing is TWEAKED by the Driver'* side headlight... Definetly totalled.

Sounds pretty bad deal by the shop. Don't forget to include stuff like a rental car now, etc..
