get an estimate from a body shop...they might total it.

My ex wife's 96 isuzu truck was totaled but was still driveable, just didn't look too hot...she was hit by a taxicab that ran a red ight. The insurance company gave her $2,000 and let her keep the truck!

That's what I'm hoping for. That's also why I'm just cashing out on it.
To be honest, there are a TON of Latino gardeners who'd still love to get their hands on it.

I'd love to get a couple grand, and sell it for another couple. Take that and roll it into a Jeep Wrangler.

But of course, I'm dreaming.

If I got that kind of bankroll for it, I'd probably drop it down on a 5D MkIII.

A photograph is like a joke. If you have to explain it, it just isn't that good.

27 year old trunk? IF you get a grand, Id be shocked. I had a 78 camaro that they wanted to give me $400 for about 8 years ago (so the same approx age)

Everyone who's seen it in person has said its a good looking little truck.
It's worth more than a grand.

Oh, but thats retail. Insurance pays usually closer to the trade in value based on the blue and red books. And it could look brand new. They still see it as a 27 year old truck.

Since it was not your fault I'd fight for the retail price. Always reject the first offer.

I'll snap a couple of photos of it tonight to show you guys.
It's a great little run around town truck. In fact, the estimator today was asking about it. Probably so he could get a feel of its value. But he asked if it was the 22R motor (it is) and he said "Four speed?" to which I told him no. It's a 5 speed. It's an SR5.
He also asked if I get people asking if it's for sale, and I told him "All the time."

But he said that since there was previous damage, he will have to turn in the paperwork and they should get back to me within 20 hours.
Hey, if I'm lucky, maybe it will be $749.00. Just under the amount when I have to report the incident to the DMV. If its over, I'll fight for more.
