05 salleen focus. need professional opinions a fast as possible

Hello, I am a first time anything on this site so I hope you all can help me out. I have recently been involved in a wreck where a guy hit me from the back at 35 while I was sitting still. Now the dillema that I come to you all about is the insurance company has given me two options; 1. $9,400 and they scrap the vehicle (only rear damage) 2. $9,000 and I keep the vehicle. Now I ask you would there be a market for my 05 blue salleen focus with 115,000 miles on it and over on great condition. Again I'm new to this and really need some good advice on what is the best and most profitable move. Thank you ! I have pictures of the damage as well but can't seem to put them up.

Personally....I would keep it. Its a rare car. How bad is the rear end damage? It has a lot of life left in it. And buy back and then part it out if thats your choice. I couldn't do that to such a nice car. Repair and drive the one of a kind car.

If you go to my profile I should have the images up. I don't know how to put them in this chat. I want to part it out if not sell it as a whole. I would love to rebuild it but I do not have the money nor time that I wish I did to do that.

You would easily make the 400 back if you go ahead and part it out...probably at least 800 from the bumpers

Dont know how interested you are in parting it out or when it would happen. But someone would buy it as a whole for the right price.

You can make a free account at photo bucket and upload the pictures and then copy them to the forum, using the image link.

Keep it if you want to part it out. Otherwise scrap it. $9K is great for a 2005. Heck for $9K I might just sell you my built, turbocharged 2006.

It'd be a shame to let a junkyard get such hard to find parts that you could make money from. It's about positive cash flow in your situation. What insurance company is it?

Okay , I agree I think I will keep it. Now what do I do? Lol where could I post it for sale? I know these might be dumb questions but I'm an idiot about this stuff.

Moved to Focus & General Chat

That things Scrap, sorry to say. Needs a Part Out, but since you don't sound like the mechanic to do it your local Craig's list or equivalent might be in order.

Maybe a Member from here in your area might be interested in doing that (buy it & part it) - better than scrapping nice pieces!
