ok I did a claim for salvage. The estimator gave this person a $9 1/2K check.
For similar POS below. Granted the car had a very clean exterior and the interior was 'feh. The cars frame was rusty and about broken. It was a hard front end accident. that caused the claim. But, I about flipped when I pulled the NADA on the car. I'm thinking my bird is clean but, If I got in a similar accident my offer would be under 3K. That is total crap. So the jackass that got a 9 1/2K settlement check is probably grinning his @$$ off.

There is an automobile Quarterly that features our cars...1990 edition I think...Wonder if it would do any good to try to covince the adjuster of the value of our cars using this book which had a quite impressive article. KF4sign (Warren)
