Long story short-
i was rear ended hard and launched into a truck and the
whole front, hood, some engine, fenders and door needs replaced, along with the back end, and other misc. stuff.

OK- WHAT SHOULD I DO?
It's looking bad- should i FIX it, and keep it?
OR try to get it totalled and
attempt to get the amount that i want for it.

I know the book on my car is like 15-18K in all honesty, but EVERYONE knows i can get MUCH more for it!

HELP ME!
What did you all do?
What should i do?
FIX IT??
TOTAL it and start over?
how can i get the most for the total amount?
How can i come out ahead on fixing it? (like getting a stillen front TRD hood etc.

This little 16 yr old needs to pay to have it fixed perfectly, or he needs to pay the REPLACEMENT value of the car.

PLEASE HELP!
thanks!

OK- so if i DO total it-

HOW CAN I PROVE this car is worth more than the book value?

I've been offered 30K right and left for it because of it's condition, miles, etc.

HOW can i make sure i get what i need out of it??

thanks!

I was told by an auto body shop that if you intend on totaling it then you need to get hold of 3 ads (for comparable cars) with the asking price of your 'liking' and present it to your insurance co.

Autotrader.com is "loaded" with such ads...

I still think that you should consult a quality body shop-if they can asure you that it's fixable (no frame damage, yada yada...) then you'll have YOUR Supra on the road in no time.
Finding a quality replacement is going to take a looooooong time and is going to be a bitch.

Good luck!
