    Default dakota- 1, crx- 0 WHAT A BAD DAY

    Just need to vent.
    Heres the story. Driving to pick up my friend in bearspaw to go check out an AE86, and possibly sell my car. Just about to turn off, doing speed limit, with this big ass Dakota tailgaiting me, signal left, half way through turn BAM! Dakota tried to pass me while i was turned, i get shot into the ditch. So my car is written off. The dakota, just some bumper damage. What a fucking day.
    Goodbye CRX. it was fun while it lasted.

    Thanks for the concern. Neck and back a bit stiff, going to the chiropractor tomorrow. He didnt take off. He was a nice guy about it, but with any accident there are going to be conflicts, now I play the waiting game with no car.

    dude take my advice and sue for whatever you can get out of it...

    in the future you will get dinged with insurance hikes just because you were involved in an accident nevermind who was at fault!! it happened to me

NW goin west, and the light turned yellow, but we were past the "point of no reutrn" so we really couldn't stop, then this school bus rips around the corner, and we fuckin smoked it goin like 70. My buddy (celicast### on this site) car was totally fucked. Who do you guys this is to blame?

    Sorry to hear. This weather we're having tends to brings out the "best" in drivers, even though the shit just melts away

    yah press charges-- and wonder why insurance is high, if it wasen't a hard hit don't sue, by the way it doesen't take much to write off an old crx, one you get to 80% of what the car is worth, it's a write off, so that's like what, $800.00?

    its not old. Its a 90. and 80% isnt 800. I paid 4000 for it 8 months ago, and have invested 2000 into it. Also, i dont think the weather really was a factor in this. The guy was just a blind idiot who cant see turn signals or brake lights

    unfortunatly you will see the joys of Blackbook value. Dont even remotely think you will get anything close to what your car is worth.

    with older cars/modified cars you have to get them appraised and insured as "replacement cost". Cause market value and wholesale/blackbook is 2 totally different things.

    According to black book my car is worth 1500 bucks, but its worth many times that on the market. you wanna see any of the money you put into it back, you gotta insure it. Sucks...

    i suggest you start collecting some auto traders and classifieds that have your same car for sale so you can show them the current value of your car to help with your settlement.

    this actually worked for me. they were trying to give us less than the vehicle was selling for on the market so we collected some info and passed it on and they upped the settlement.
