screwed part deux..the insurance company's offer??./ salvagecert.???

well, the insurance company called and told me what they'd offer me for my 
'84 5000 turbo..  they are only giving me $2100 for it...which i am taking a 
loss on, and is totally unfair for the excellent shape the car was in, but - 
that doesnt matter to THEM. they just see it as a 15 year old car w/ 160k on 
the ins. adjuster told me that i could give him reciepts of things i added to 
the car, that were not stock, but he said he would just call an audi dealer 
and ask them if the things i had added to the car would make it worth 
 do you REALLY think a new Audi dealer cares what kind of things i have added 
to my car?

i was under the impression that if there were items that i added to the car, 
that were not stock, and i had furnished reciepts for them, then the ins co. 
would reimburse me for the cost of these items.  i already know they arent 
going to reimburse me for general repairs.

if i had a $1500 custom stereo system in my car, and the stereo system was 
damaged in the wreck, and i furnished the ins. co a reciept for the stereo 
system,- all the adjuster is telling me he would do is call a brand new Audi 
dealer and ask them if the custom stereo system makes my 84 turbo worth 
am i at the mercy of a brand new Audi dealer, as to what they think my '84 
turbo is worth?
this doesnt sound right.

also, the adjuster is telling me that if i want to buyback the car - i have 
to send my good title back to the state of Pa and get a Salvage title.
i have NEVER heard that...  i have 3 cars, right now, that were totalled by 
other insurance companies and i bought them from the individuals who had 
bought them back from their insurance comapnies, when they were totalled.  
And they ALL have good titles - and one of them is a Pa title.  One of the 
"totalled" cars i am now driving (bought it from a Qlistmember) as i needed 
something to replace my '84 turbo in the interim. 

the adjuster is telling me he wont give me any $ for my car until i get a 
salvage cert.  Has anyone else bought back their wrecked car, and not had to 
get a salvage cert????   lets just say my car was "totalled" (which it is) 
but still driveable, and roadworthy (which it isnt)....  if i wanted to buy 
my car back - and still use it, then i would be screwed because i had to turn 
my title in to the state and get a salvage cert????
 the "totalled" '86 5000 turbo that i am driving in the interim (PO's ins co 
"totalled" it because of hit in RR which is definately fixable..) has a good 
title...the PO wasnt required to send his title off to the state to get a 
salvage cert....

what gives????

any help would be appreciated...
