    Insurance coverage is questionable? What does that mean?

    If I had to guess, he is trying to claim it on his business insurance.

        Doesn't make sense to me that he wouldn't. Even if he didn't want the car anymore the prudent thing to do would be to fix it and sell it...

        Did someone try to act like they were in Hazard County? Sorry to see that.

        Probably drove it with the pedal to the floor, but without understanding the handling characteristics of a 53 year old car with a modern hemi transplant the joyriders were bound to wreck it. I can see a Hotchkiss upper A-arm in the wreckage, so the suspension isn't stock but these old cars still handle differently and unlike new cars with all of their nanny safety devices, older cars are raw and will bite you if you dont know what you're doing...

          My guess is that the Insurance Company was not notified of the modifications, and is withholding payments on that basis.

            OMG...I would hunt them down like a dog....the Clint Eastwood way. These type of people have no clue what kind of hard work it takes to build a car, f@ck'in idiots.

            That is a huge bag of suck brother. Give it time and before you know it you'll be out there spinning wrenches on it.
            On another note, I'm not a liberal or a hard ass but I think I would have to give that woman the money she needed to move forward..20 bucks or the full 200.00 wouldn't have mattered. Sometimes paying it forward has it's rewards later down the road when you might need some help.
            Best of luck, don't give up because even a busted up 68 Charger is worth saving

                Not to minimize your loss....
                Seeing what happened to that gal down on her luck sure puts things in perspective and will allow you to continue on without being embittered.
                Thanks for sharing this as it helps remind me of what is really important
                Best regards
                Danny

                  another wondering if they caught the douche,
                  that stole it & wrecked it ?

                  certainly, the car is fixable

                  & I understand if you put it on the back burner too...

                  I hope it's not too huge of a burden...
                  best of luck

                      Reading must be a lost art... I see multiple posts on how I should wait then fix it, I should have helped the woman with an extra $20, asking who crashed it etc... That is all GREAT but it's NOT MY CAR!!!! I was only posting so hopefully the OWNER could get his car back...
