Flipped...Now what

So two nights ago I was driving down a back country road going to a friends and right after a turn a deer ran out in front of me. I tried to avoid it like a fool. The combination of hard braking and turning put my lude lock one of the tires up and put me into a ditch/embankment which i pretty much board slided with my car until flipping onto a metal post that blasted through my windshield right next to my head.
Not 30 minutes earlier I had just finished changing the oil and detailing it. Not to mention $500 in new tires that had under 300miles.
So my question is, will I be better off trying to find a blown up lude and just swapping the engines or trying to parts mine. Its a 5th 5pd, about 140k but compression checked out great. If you could possibly give a rough estimate for parting a lude and/or buying a blown up one that would be helpful. Or even if there is a market for someone buying wrecked ludes for parts cars.

Re: Flipped...Now what

We almost hit one last night, ****eer was running next to my brothers civic and we slowed down and he just jumped sideways and accrost the road about 1' in front of our car.

Id go with putting your motor in a car, Dont clame your car, just part it out and call someone who takes junk cars for free and tell him to come get it. Shells are cheap and you also could get a 4th gen A NYS trroper told me that you dont have to claim nothing on your insurance thats your choice. So, is it worth payimg more for insurance for like 5 years?

Re: Flipped...Now what

Re: Flipped...Now what

You're better off finding another Lude and part yours out to pay for it if insurance didn't cover it.

Re: Flipped...Now what

its probably better that you dodged the deer anyways. If you hit it, you woulda clipped the legs and the body would fly straight into your windshield. bad for you and the deer.

I'm thinking it was Glenda?
Wouldn't we all like a piece of that.

Of course, we can't forget the old Top End Lude. Most people on here don't remember, especially the first heart in her. I tell ya, that car was an N/A beast from hell. Some fu*ker stole it though.
It was the ultimate sleeper Lude.

Re: Flipped...Now what

4th gens are underrated, you will not be disappointed by the handling characteristics and it is the sexiest lude. :) IMO
