Got into an accident, now what?

I recently got into an accident. I'm not sure if its worth fixing or selling it as is. I have had horrible luck with this prelude. I cant part it out because my landlord wont let me leave the car parked in the driveway. I cant sell it because i need a new Fender, Hood, Radiator, headlight bumper and who else knows what. With that being said, should I fix it then sell it or sell it in the condition it is? I will get another prelude one day but this one has got to go. I'm looking into getting a TSX or a EX-L accord coupe.

Insurance?
If so, if its bad enough, they'll total it, and depending on the insur. co., may even write you a check.

Re: Got into an accident, now what?

You could rent a storage unit to store it while you part it out, if that's what you'd rather do.

Re: Got into an accident, now what?

Maybe put on what is necessary like a radiator and drive it, then put the other part's on when you can afford it

Re: Got into an accident, now what?

Get the TSX instead of the Accord and don't even look back. Get another Prelude when your money is right.

WhaddIdonow??? It's called a joke man, I hated that crap. People trading in perfectly good cars because they couldn't figure out it was a sensor or trying to sell the car for more money. Yell at me in PM or something.

OP you could also donate the car to charity and get a great tax return. Speak to your tax guy first.

Re: Got into an accident, now what?

so looks like a TSX is out. everyone is telling me to just get a accord and call it a day. its realiable and such. I cant seem to keep this prelude. i wish there was a way to keep this on the side and have a DD. The only problem is where can i put it? anywho ill keep you guys posted on my new ride and what i will do with this LUDE. here is a pic of when i first got it.

Accords and TSX are good cars. Mom has had 2 TSX's and they have always been good cars.

Re: Got into an accident, now what?

Damn man sorry u had such bad luck with the car. Seeing the pictures the car looked great. Glad to c that ur gonna keep it. Repainting the car is a very expensive move. U dont want a cheap job tho...the paint will crack, chip, fade and other stuff. I know from experience. I would just paint the must do areas until u have the money for a great paint job. Looking at ur car lots of newer vehicles dont look as good! Hope to check ur ride in person one of these days. Hit me up.347-731-7295.

Re: Got into an accident, now what?

so glad you are keeping it!! unless you have a friend with a paint booth you don't get much for $1500 but ripped off. your money is spent on prep, more prep and even more prep as the coats progress...time is $$$.
in the 30's cadilacs had two color paint scheme. say it was black on the outsideand white on the inside. when you opened the door you'd see the inner door matched the seats etc. there wasn't much cloth in those days. mostly medal. you say you wanna change colors? well you could pick an outer color like slate gray and have the outer part done like that. but when you open the hood, trunk, doors it wouldn't look all stink bug with that original shade of gray and the factory shades of gray interior.

i used to have a 2 tone truck. ligh blue with a portion of dark blue. i was gonna paint it all dark blue but for stripes of light blue on the hood/roof/tailgate so that when you open the hood or doors you'd see the same shade of blue as the stripes. my brother needed wheels and i never drove it so i sold it to him before having it painted.
