Totalled my Honda

(This happened on the 10th, but I'm just now posting because I only just got to visit my car in the lot to take a picture.)
The Honda got totalled. Rear-ended. Was sitting at an intersection, waiting to make a left turn. Two cop cars flew by with sirens going, and about two seconds after, got slammed from behind.
Gonna buy Senor Hondos (the Civic) back off of the insurance company. Wanna put it back on the road, but I'm not sure that chain-snatching it will work at this point... :P Most likely going to have to buy a new Civic when the insurance company feeds out the money, and I'll use this one for parts and sell what I don't need. They won't give much, I'm sure, since it's a raggedy-ass '91 Civic. I paid $900 for it when I was a high school sophomore- there's no way they'd give me more than that. But I definitely need a 'new' '88-91 Civic- I used this one on the newspaper route. No truck or van is going to work on a paper route, since a route is terrible for gas mileage (and front end wear), and Honda is the most reliable thing I've ever owned, so I don't want any other car. Can't kill Hondas- unless you wreck them, that is.





I think it's hilarious that the tailpipe it still in the same position it was pre-accident. That sucker has been held on by two C-Clamps and a lot of duct tape for four months now.

Don't buy that back. Not worth it at all. Find an old CRX for a replacement.

Man, I'd love to have a CRX- that's my dream. But I need a regular Civic for the paper route- couldn't run one in a CRX. Not enough room for all those newspapers. This one was stock.

Just gonna buy it for parts- Gonna get a 'new' one, so I'm gonna take the parts off of this one. And I have a few people that want parts off of it already- my best friend is going to buy the tranny off of me for $100.

Yeah, it sure seems like some bad luck lately. Engines falling on me, getting wrecked- cars got it in for me, I think.

Bahaha, that's sweet. Never been fond of the wagons in terms of looks, but that's sharp.

Sorry to hear about that, OP. It sucks when you lose something like this that is worth more to you than the insurance could ever pay out.
Good luck in finding a replacement.

Much thanks, man.
Anyone know any good sites I might be able to track down a new car with? I know there's Craigslist, but I can't rightly think of any more.

You can use searchtempest.com to search all craigslist ads within a certain distance from you. It's a pretty easy site to use.

Still waiting on the chick's insurance company to get back to me with an offer. Never had it take this long... Rather aggravating. Haftin to drive around in my illegal-as-hell scrap van, because the power steering pump broke on the vehicle I had been using since the accident. (the other van.) Can't use my Taco, since it still doesn't run yet, and I can't drive my sister's car because of a broken inner tie rod. So at this point, I'm kinda screwed.

The insurance company finally got back to me the other day with an offer, They said they would give me $1073 for the car, and I'd have to pay $250 if I wanted to buy it back of of them. So I'm going to buy it back and take the remaining $800 dollars. Still gonna see if I can't chain-snatch the back end into some semblance of order. If not, then I'll just be parting it out. The Honda should be towed to my house some time within the next week, so I'll get back to y'all then, unless I find out more before then. (Anyone local want parts off a 91 Civic DX?)

Hopefully you can make it work because $800 won't get you much of any honda.

I've been talking to a fellow about his '88 Civic. He wants $750 for it. It's got rear damage too, but looks far more fixable. I could definitely chain-snatch it back into order. Here it is:
http://norfolk.craigslist.org/pts/3564879360.html
Still runs and drives like a champ, and I know I can fix it with a bit of chain snatching. Only thing I don't like about it is that it's an automatic. I'm a manual kinda guy.

Got the Honda back today. I was at work, so my mother was there when the wrecker dropped it off. Just got home, decided to take a few pictures and inspect it closer. The back passenger door already didn't open (before the accident) and now the back driver's side door won't open. But the trunk does! O_o
I am still going to try to chain-snatch it back into order. If that doesn't work, then... parting Senor Hondos out.
I'm also trying to figure out why the damn car looks 50 times worse- compare pics I took when it was in the yard to these ones. Now the lights are gone, and half the bumper. What the hell did they do to my Senor Hondos when they had him in the lot??

I would do something like that as a project. For the hell of it. But for functionality, I do need a trunk. I need the trunk to put my single-copy newspapers (the ones that go to Farm Fresh, Starbucks, and Shoney's) and my OTP's (Out-of Town Publication) in when I'm on the paper route so they don't get in the way of all of my RHD's (Regular Home Deliveries.) and take up all the room.

Well, Senor Hondos started right up, even though he's been out of commission for a month exactly. I took a pry bar to the part of the body that was rubbing against the back tire, and took him for a spin around the block. Senor Hondos lives! Got it in the back yard now so that my evil neighbor doesn't see it and decide that she has to call the city on us for something. Because she will.
