One week ago I was sitting at a set of traffic lights waiting for them to change when a very large truck ran straight up my rear, lucky no injuries so my cruiser went off to repair shop.
Today I got the bad news they wrote it off, this was a death in the family and the club. :(

Geez Chris, that is not good.
Firstly I hope you are ok!
I've been away for a few days and just walked in the door tonight. That is very sad.
Unfortunately today for the so called insured value you only have to damage a bumper and one mud guard and they'll write it off.
Half the problem is because they don't know where to get parts or don't even ask if you are happy to have second hand parts to keep it going.
So sad for you Chris.
Now what!

Geez, bad luck mate, I know how much you loved that car and entering it in car shows, not to mention all the time and money spent getting the car to show standard.........at least you had no injuries, it could of been much worse.

Ray is spot on, insurance companies rarely repair cars over 10 years old, and wit values of PT's in the doldrums, and spare parts very expensive, a PT only have to have minor damage to cause it to be written off.

Regards, Steve and Liz
