A good Body Shop?

As my wife was leaving McD's (Free Coffee Monday) a village worker that was in front of her backs up and hits her. The guy admitted to the he backed up and hit her, and i hope they don't total it. i don't think there is that much damage, but the car is 10 yrs old and has over 150,000 miles it. I love this car, it runs great and no problems with it what so ever.

If they total it can't you collect the money then buy the car back as salvage? That way you can keep the car and get that fixed for cheap somewhere.

Yeah you'd be suprised at how much the total comes out to when the corner of your car is hit. It doesn't look that bad but every panel affected must be repaired or replaced.

Depending on the company, even if they total it you might be able to buy the car back. They sell them at a dealer auction anyway. If you want email my uncle, he has a body shop on Pulaski. Send him a few pics and he should be able to give you a rough estimate over the phone. 773-583-6387, his name is yakov. His email is [email protected] Tell him Dmitry sent you.

You know the Germans, if you donīt join the party they come and get you.
