Re: Sad day R.I.P. dear Scooby.............

you mjust have an aching neck and saw hand after that shunt
Seriously, did similar damage to my old scooby earlier this year, plus both back wheels came off on my car. my car was a Cat C write off, which meant it could be put back on the road if fixed up properly. I bought the car back off the insurance company for 400 and managed to sell the whole thing for 1750. so i manged to claw back most losses

Re: Sad day R.I.P. dear Scooby.............

bugger!!!!


was it your fault though???


those lights need a filter and yellow box system,could have a legal clause on this one bud


also what was it that hit you??? depending on what it was n how hard will help determin as to whether its a write off


one last thing,Sill seems to be unafected,rear quarter should be repairable,some bint hit mine in the same are not as hard granted but it was only a quick repair n she was back on the road,would also suggest a new rear hub n poss half shaft to be added into the mix..

Re: Sad day R.I.P. dear Scooby.............

It will be considered my fault as I was turning right accross the path of an "invisable" silver Focus 09 plate driven prob too bloody fast by an old git on mobility who prob never hit the brakes at all, couldn't see the bugger till it hit me,
my car will defo be written off as the damage has been estimated at over 5800 and she was only worth 4500 ish also the c pillar has twisted and wrinckled you can just about see it in pic 3.

Really sorry to hear that chap.

Was in great condition, you must be gutted. Still, when Andrew had his written off he was not a happy bunny but is now the proud owner of a Spec C. You never know . . .

Re: Sad day R.I.P. dear Scooby.............

shame it will deemed your fault. it does only look like panel damage, i cannot imagine it will be more than a Cat C, maybe even only a Cat D. Once you find out you could see if the insurance company will let you purchase it back from them. With the insurance you get from the car you could get it fixed and walk away with a small amount of cash in your pocket as well.
