??? It being clean has nothing to do with value. Blue Book value of the car VS % of parts and labor to fix the car determine if its totaled or not. In Kansas, if the cost to repair is 30-35% of the car, it's totaled. My old man works for a salvage yard. New cars get totaled easy due to the low parts supply of new models. If it has 150K, it's totaled.

Glad everyone is okay, the car held up great, and yeah, the weather in KC was horrible yesterday with all the rain and fog.

Good that the cars took the damage here... good luck with finding another one. There are still some clean ones out there.

I wasnt trying to undermine you or anything. I have been involved in salvage vehicles for over 15 years now.


My vote is a 2.3 Hatch, I wonder why........

If I can find a 2.3 ZX5, that is what I would pick up in a heart beat. Just have to find one now.
