Someone referred to a person having a hard time selling their 200...the one
with the black paint, and modded wood trim

As a data point for you, I remeber he wound up selling this car for $7000.

Thanks for the positive write up and ideas. I like the idea about asking the
ins co. to provide a guarantee as to the replacement vehicles condition.

As I live about 80 miles from anything, it is going to be hard for them to
find any comps in my immediate area. I think that Missoula area has 4 or 5
91 200's total. It is very rare for me to see one on the road.
