As the title says, a deer ran out in front of me last friday on my way to work at 6am, somehow it managed to do enough damage to total my car. $6700 worth to be exact, which they said was 95% of the value of the vehicle. Sucks that my 7 year old, paid off vehicle that I payd $19,000 for new is worth basically $7,000. I took immaculate care of it, just put all new wheel bearings and brakes($500 in parts) all the way around over the summer, and literally changed the oil 3 miles before hitting a deer......
It is still driveable, although wrecked as fuck in the front. I plan on moving soon into a place with the lady friend, so I'm really not sure what I want to do, as this complicates thing financially.
Option #1 buy it back and get it 'rigged' for as cheap as possible, this would include a salvage yard hood, grill, and some back yard body work to get the core support pulled back out, a new A/C condenser and radiator, and fluids. My car has a two tone custom paint job, so this salvage yard hood is not going to match. Possible flat black my entire vehicle.
Option #2 find the cheapest POS that gets the most MPG that I can find, and get something else down the road.
Option #3 get a decent mpg car now and drive it until I can't stand it any more.
Option #4 get financed for what I really want, a used 04-04 Subaru WRX STi. Hard to find in the color I want, WRB(world rally blue for non subi snobs) with the sick gold wheels. These run give or take $15,000 with 100k miles on them.
Also, deer hunting, I'm starting.
man that sucks.
might as well get something you like at this point.
no offense, but fuck subaru assholes lol. fuckers think they own a Ferrari. I just had to paint a whole wrx for some anal shit who already had it painted at another shop and is picking out the most ludicrous ridiculous shit. Really sucks to know this guy is looking for shit with binoculars. No pressure haha
i can only hope he likes my work enough to accept it....
