I would say 7000+ easily... I don't even think it would be reparable... the roof looks pretty bad...

It will be written off with non-repairable on the title... the roof would be costly to repair

Well whats crazy is that other than the roof, nothing seems to be in too out of shape. if its totalled, i'll go ahead and buy it back just for the parts i have for it and in it.. plus ill have a spare motor to build for boost at that point

enough to total it. the ACV can't be more then $12,000 tops.
its hard to even guess. theres alot of things to factor in. does the insurance company use new or used parts, options, mileage, condition, labor rates, ect ect.

id say there is probably damage to the rad support, and most likely damage to the A-pillar and or firewall where it meets the windshield. if there is damage to the pillar it will be branded salvage if it's totaled.

the roof has almost nothing to do with it being branded, cars are branded when there is structural damage. structural points vary from state to state but usually include frame damage, damage to rockers,posts,pillars and firewalls.


can i guess what happened? cause i have 3 guesses.

1. the car was driven off the road and under a tree/fence.
2. cargo/parts came off a vehicle in front of the car.
3. not really sure about this one but a collision with a large animal.

I wouldn'y be able to guess what happened to it, but i bet it scared the @!#$ out of you! Looks like you hit a moose or something. Its going to be totaled. Buy back, build for boost, and sell various things to make money back!

well you guys were close on the guesses, i was drivin home wednesday and i popped over a hill, right as the neighbors horse got loose and it ran right in front of my car (1500 pound horse at that).... It was definitely one of the scariest experiences i have ever had...
that dent on the roof is where the horse head hit and upon impact it ripped off the horses leg

poor horse couldn't even be sent to the glue factory as his legs are probably somewhere across the state line

interesting, id like to see how close it is to the adjusters estimate. im thinking there will be additional damage that we can't see in the pics, so im sticking to total loss.

No joking
Here is a 2000 sunfire I fixed and sold for 3500 and still made money on it --(3 years ago)((front clip, bags, windshield, complete paint job, graphics, added wheels and the ground effects)


and this one was a complete rollover --2002 for 5 grand (2 + years ago)
