what to do, wrecked 95 gt
Tuesday, April 24, 2012 2:59 AM
There are numerous posts on this forum concerning this car. I purchased it for my son and with the help of J body got it running and made it his regular transportation.
Then he had the accident. Last winter.... "Hey dad, I hit a stop sign because of the ice". Well, the stop sign must have been attached to a telephone pole because the
front right fender is pushed in pretty good right behind the head light, front bumper is trashed, knocked a chunk off the aluminum wheel where the bead seals.
I got the car home, it still runs great. Pulls a little to the side. I was going to go ahead and try to fix it, and even had a bumper and fender in the correct
color located and they were sold before I got to them.

So what do I do with it? I put a tire on it and it drives ok, pulls a little to the right and pops when turning, must have pulled a tie rod or ball joint. Just found out that my son lost the title, 100 to get that back.
Is the quad 4 engine and tranny worth anything? Should I part this thing out or what?

Does anyone have a red bumper and rf fender for sale?
Thanks...Gary

I'm not sure why you want to part out a car that has some body damage that's reparable. If the unibody was mangled, I could understand, but it doesn't sound like it is. If it's only a DD, fix what needs to be fixed and keep driving it. Also- I feel for you having such a high lost title fee. That's ridiculous.

HI James, thanks for the reply,

The car is good except for the body damage and the fact that the clear coat is coming off. Good enough to buy new parts, paint to not match the disintegrating clear coat, ummm...I dont know. I just had a Jeep Grand Cherokee front bumper replaced and painted, I bought the part and it still cost 1800 when it was all over.

If I could find parts the right color, then ok. Right now, I cannot find those parts. I have no interest at all in replacing the body parts with non matching colors.

As far as the title cost goes, this is Illinois. They rape you on everything labeled as tax.

thanks...gary

Well, I went out to the junkyards today and found a red fender but the bumper was trashed.

Can anyone tell me if an SE bumper will fit a GT? I am pretty sure the fender is no big deal.

I want to make sure there isn't an oil cooler or something in the 24 valve that negates the use of a non GT front bumper.

thanks...gary
