    GTP Write off??

    Looks like my car may be a write off. There's not a ton of damage but the front end is pushed over. I'm pretty pisses about the whole situation. I don't understand how ppl can drive a car and not look at where they want to go. I put a lot of hard work and effort into the car and kept it in decent shape. Was my pride and joy for 6+ years and to have it taken away in such stupidity hurts. Anyways enough of the rant..... it's not over for me yet.

    Could you not buy it back as a salvage?

    I'm sure he could, but if the front clip is knocked over...

    It is pushed a bit off center no more than a half inch. Gonna try and buy it back and maybe get a base gt and swap motors.

    Are you sure it's moved? I'd buy it back, and take it to another shop after just to make sure the story doesn't change.

    I know the owner where I took it and my friend works there. He is the one who checked.

    Re: GTP Write off??

    Here's the thing about this car, are they going to write it off, or does it have structural damage. If the radiator support is bent, than you will require a structural safety which is about $500 bucks or more and the title will always say salvage. With that in mind, you're car basically will have no value from here on out so throwing money at it for fun is awesome but you'll never be able to sell it again.

    2ndly, how far can you really go with it? I mean its 4000lbs, fwd, etc. you're starting off with a difficult platform.

    IMO, take the money and buy something else that's a better platform to start from...OR...if you have a lot of money into the motor and think it should be saved.. buy something it can be swapped into. Fiero's take those motors, RX7 if you can make it rwd, I dunno what else... just an opinion.

    I don't know why ppl think these cars aren't good platforms. You can easily get 500whp from them and run 10s all day and still be a daily driver. Anyways the car is a write off I just have to see what's next.

    Bah, build what you want. If we all applied that logic, we'd all be driving fox body Mustangs.

    No need to flame. Do some research and you will see.

    I'm sure your smart enough to figure out the rest. I never claimed it was the best platform just stating facts.

    I think Mike was trying to say that if you can get that thing to run 10s with 500hp, he'll eat it piece by piece.
