Well I was heading north on a road at 35 mph and a southbound car took a left right in front of me. This is the result. From what I am told, there is a good chance this will be totaled.






And the other guy!

hmmm.. to me it doesn't look like a total loss.. but then again who knows what it looks like from down under, if there is any frame damage and what not.. also it doesn't appear that an air bag deflated..

Both airbags went off but I didn't need them. The car took all of the shock. I didn't get a picture of it but the driver door sticks out about 1/4 inch when closed now. I'm pretty sure the frame is tweaked.

to me its kinda hard to tell from the pix if the air bags went off.. usually theres like way noticable windshield damage when they go off.. but now knowing that, most likely they're gonna total it..

Well if it is totaled, I have GAP coverage. I'll come out pretty well on the deal I think. I don't think I'll be getting another Tib though. My life and priorities have changed recently and I was actually planning on selling it in the spring so that I could get a truck. Maybe in the future I'll buy another one. Who knows....

glad to see ur ok, the car is material and can be replaced. If ur driver door is sticking out like that then yeah ur frame is twisted. Not to mention w/e lines and such got jacked up in ur engine bay. I would be surprised not to see it totalled. take off any of the parts u can and sell them though. Esp the fuel tuner and i hope u got that before u sent it off to a body shop or on a tow truck somewhere cause things seems to have the abilitly to up and walk away....

The car was totaled after all. I was afraid that I wouldn't get enough to pay off the loan.... That was before the agent called me and told me I was getting a check for over $14000 for a stock 03 tib! AAA is a good insurance company. Look into it!
