Any smart adjuster if allowed real world internet access could easily see this thread. Talk about making use of the PI attorney, Chiros and Orthos and then in the next breath talk about going clubbing would suggest to that cynical adjuster that you may not be as hurt as the treatment suggests. Throw in the line about buying a Lambo, and it suggest someone with $$$ signs in eyes.
Keep the talk here to your truck, that does look to need a new Chassis etc.

haha. The amount they are offering for my damage is no where even remotely close to being able to buy a new lamborghini. They initially offered less than 4k, which is a freaking joke. And for the record, I got banged up pretty good in my legs (bleeding) and lower back so going to a chiropractor actually helps me feel a lot better in those areas. All I know is the accident wasn't my fault but I'd like to get my D90 back into shape regardless of the cost.

Clearly they were clueless.

Out of love with the Porsche? The Gallardo is surprisingly comfortable and could be a decent daily driver.

That's what happens when you buy one with only 2 pedals.

The Lamborghaudi's are a different breed than the older ones. A lot less supercar in their DNA but still a lot of fun. We took a couple Gallardos from Vegas up north to Valley of Fire down to Hoover Dam. The road from Valley of Fire to the Hoover Dam is an example of your tax dollars at work (ARRA project) and a must drive/ride if you are in Vegas and have access to a fun car/ride.

To those wondering whats going on with my D90. I'm having it towed home where I will assemble it myself in my parking lot along with new frame and body panels I've been collecting/buying. It'll be a slow project but at least its comming home finally. I'll have to start a biuld thread of course.

Neil, what ever happened to your truck? Last I heard you were getting a new frame? You need to do a registry, I am interested to see your multiple rigs.

Oh my D90 is in my yard and the frame I already got just collecting dust. Just haven't gotten around to it because I've been so busy. But I've been contemplating how I'm going to lift the body up high enough to roll the chassis out/in. Was thinking about using that hoist crane frame they have at harbor freight.

Are you going to disassemble it yourself and swap the frames out? Seems like you could get a body shop to accelerate that buy having them lift it up for a day and working around it. That shit with the hoist crane alone would be tough tackling that alone. Put up some pics when you do it.

What color is your 97?

Soft top right? Just take it all apart and reassemble on the new chassis. No individual part is more than a single he-man lift.
