still waiting to hear back from insurance, but this was early last week. hopefully i find out soon what's going to happen..ambulance ran a light, truck infront of us slammed on his brakes, olds alero went into the back of the truck, then i went into the back of the alero, then another car got me from behind (very minimal damage in the rear, or to the other 2 vehicles..no dents or anything.)




i think it's totaled, what do you guys think?

here's a pic a few days earlier... :(



just installed BC S2 cams, figs hood props, SRT intake too. dangit! hope i can get all of that out of there..

judging by the year of the car the amount of damage, your insurance is probably gonna label it as a total loss. if your car is already at a collision center just call your insurance to make arrangements so you can take out your aftermarket parts and put the stock parts back in

Yeah bro that is definitely a total loss. Check my thread from last year.

Here: http://my.is/forums/f138/is300-guardrail-shitty-day-pics-380618/

I ended up rebuilding the car myself by using a front clip from another IS and getting it painted up to match. I only paid a grand in payments, and fixed my car for $2300. So I bought my 2003 5spd LSD IS300 for $3300. Pretty sweet deal. Now I'm trading it straight for a 1994 TT 6spd Targa Supra. Can't wait :)

definitely a total loss, do you know whos at fault?
they havn't said anything, the cops were complete jerks to me. probably because of my age + my car, the female cop said "maybe this will teacher you teenage punks not to lower your vehicles so much" (when im 21..i know barely out of teens...but still!) i got hit from behind, so hopefully not my fault completely..

NOOOOOOOOOO this sucks. Sorry man, and after you just bought the hood props etc. So you bought it back from insurance?
yeah i got it back from the insurance company, it actually worked out well for me lol. new one is a manual, same color, so the heat shield and hood props will be put to good use :) that was the 1st thing i did on this new one when i got home was the heat shield haha.

i'll be making a trip up with that intake soon too! as soon as i can find some time :)

and turbo, front was completely smashed :( hood & bumper..is in a couple pieces.

thanks everyone else for how the car looked! this next one..just gotta do it bigger and better, right? :)
