Well the hit and run on my old 89 honda, after being shuffled around about a dozen insurance claim people and two adjusters, the person who hit me his insurance company is finally going to pay off.

i talked to the second adjuster and claiming all my receipts of parts i put into that old car he agreed that it was a collectible car

I will be getting 2200 bucks for that old rust bucket, leaky, fishing car ��

not bad considering i bought it from copart ( a salvage auction company ) 12 years ago for 450 bucks .....
copart is scheduled through the insurance company to pick it up tomorrow guessing that it may be up for auction next month -

Needless to say i am happy :D

Gkad it worked out so well for you.
I have done well with settling motor vehicle property damage claims with insurance companies. One example:
Had a mini-van just go up in flames on a rural highway.
Started a brush fire which was put under control in fairly short order
I could honestly say I did not know the exact milage.
I did say it was over 100k miles which was true and left it at that.
The settlement was more than fair.
What I would tell my clients was to find same car for sale and give the insurance company the highest three they could find as that was the market value.
That works.

I ran out of Canoe!

----and, I don't have any SWRA in my cellar to send out an equally potent pheromone scent of civilized virility tonight.
