Au> Well, Allstate has finally made me an offer for my totalled '87 5k ...
Au> while it's more than I expected and/or originally hoped to get
Au> ($5,389.50), it's a bit short of what I figured I could negotiate them
<<deletia of list of parts ect.>>
I may be wrong...but the insurance company will own the
car as soon as they pay you. IF you want to sell/remove
anything from the car you'll have to buy the car back from
them. If the car has already been inspected, I've seen
instances (a friend changed the wheels on his Beemer before
they picked it up) where the insurance company will stop
payment and start the whole process over again because
you have removed something they have "bought".
Of course none of this applies if the car hasn't been declared
totaled, and the insurance company is paying to repair the
damages. But, at over 5g's, it definitly sounds like a
totaled settlement to me.
Too bad you didn't post this last week, a local dealer
offered me a beautiful 87 5KS for $800. (It needed some
front end work and had 250K miles.) You could have been
on the road again with parts and cash to spare.
... No sense being pessimistic. It wouldn't work anyway.
