Thats right starter wire shorted to the block and lit up the engine area ....so it will probably be totaled....see you guys later [:(]

no pics yet.... the bad thing is theres no body damage just engine...and the kicker is it doesnt look very bad but it killed enough stuff to drive the estimate over 8000.00 to fix

I would def. buy back from the Insurance company and rebuild if they're isn't any noticeable body damage, you can always buy another motor and build it before throwing it back in.....

Damn.
Sorry to hear that. [:(]

Any guesses as to what caused the starter wire to short out in the first place?
I suppose, I better take a look at mine the next time I'm underneath the car.

Not another one. If you decide to buy it back and part it out, i'll take first dibs on your mirrors. Good luck man and let us know what happens. I hate to see another svtf go.

Im so sorry to hear about your car...mine got hit last month in a parking lot while i was in class and it bent almost everything in my left rear suspension and I had to fix it all up myself with no help from my insurance or air tools. I was a month without my car so I can feel your pain of not having it!!. However if you are going to buy it back to part it out...i wouldnt mind the HID's if they are in good unscratched/not many scratches condition. Let me kno!
