The insurance co of the texting kid who hit me is going to total my car. This will probably end up in small claims. Ya'll know me. I don't have the patience for morons.

This is the first accident I've ever been in. Get ready. This is our future with these stupid smartphones and careless people. Its going to be an epidemic.

Sorry man, that's gotta hurt.

Can't give much advice from an Oz perspective.

Around 13 grand low end. But they will not go by that because it does not behoove them to.

Insurance cos are some of the slimiest sleezebags on the planet.

Was it insured as a classic car?

Go through your own insurance company and see if they will pay to repair and then they will usually go after the side for your deductible.

Glad you weren't injured.

I didn't have it insured on my end. Because I'm an excellent driver and didn't think I needed it.

I did get knocked out, lost consciousness, and leg and knee got banged up.

Did the other drive get a ticket for texting while driving?

Make sure you're ok and get checked out medically if needed.

Feel really bad for you turtlevette.. That's just super cruddy. And a really cool car too.. One of my favorites when I was a child.

I hope it all gets right in your favor man. I'm pulling for you BIGTIME.

Being that you have a classic car and they will try giving you peanuts for it, I would see a personal injury attorney asap.

YOU didn't have insurance of any kind? You may end up getting the proverbial shaft! They don't allow us to register a vehicle here without insurance. Although collision coverage is not required. My classics I carry full coverage classic car insurance. IT IS CHEAP.

Looks like the door hinge porttion of the body is pretty out of whack. That will be expensive to repair. Plus whatever is busted on the front suspension.

Not a smart move..... to not have insurance on you vehicle.

Small claims court usually have dollar limits (usually 5K to 10K), and even if you win....getting the $$$ from someone....especially a deadbeat kid..... might be near impossible.

Geesh...that's painful to look at. Enough to make an old car guy cry! You do want to get yourself checked out and start the music with a lawyer to advise you of your rights, both property & medical wise.
