I don't think many of them are, or that they should be, but it is what it is ;-)

Those listings sure do help with keeping at bay the big "T"

There's a 1997 for 167k? I don't see it.

That seriously sucks. I see that some parts of the body may have been tweaked a couple of degrees which will need to be addressed, but I don't see a totaled truck there.

Took me a minute to realise it was originally on a trailer, and now I can't believe there isn't more impact damage! I'm not sure if the insurance is trying to push this through quickly, but one probably shouldn't make a snap decision on a "collector's" vehicle....
I recently was talking to Bert Roberts, "Flagg" here on the source, about his recent D90 accident. I'm sure he would be happy to share his experiences with you for any info on how the insurance handle things.
Logically, he chose to go with a capable shop closer to his home in Maryland so that if he needed to , he could check in on the progress more easily.

Coverage

Yes I have actual cash value, but he had care and custody so his insurance is primary. They have already contacted me so we can see. But they said the shop is my choice.
So I need to make the right choice and they can all do what we pay them to do

Looks like the 90 fared pretty well after seeing the crime scene photo! Could have been a lot worse if the trailer had cut loose right away.

I will buy the A-hoop and ARB if you end up having to fork over a deductible.

Ouch:

The bit that initially really had me worried is the bow in the drivers side fender. But I suspect that is caused by the roll cage not by the chassis being bent.

Regardless, its going to be a tear down and rebuild. With all the trauma that goes along with that.

Solution

She's headed south for the summer to Safarihp in Orlando. Feeling a little better. I will move thread a keep you all posted on insurance process.
I think it's important for us all to understand. My agent said they have to pay for depreciated value because of the accident plus loss of use.
We'll see
