    So sorry to ear that, Mike. Is there any way you could rebuild it with some help? I know the NTBA has members in the area that might be able to lend a hand. What do you think?

    No way can I do a body off. And the fixes are beyond me $$$.Stretched it too far already. Had to fix too many things just to fix what I knew needed. Ten years ago I'd go for it and more. Now it just hurts to look at it. Too much money and time to add more .Hit TWO walls hard . I hurt.

    Yesterday Hagerty sent "estimate" to have it repaired. 5000.00. I could fab brackets, weld em and assemble. Can't afford axle or body work. That's why I'm selling it. I thought 6000 asking and add estimated 5000 would appeal to someone. 11000 for a T-bucket. So...waiting till final Hagerty $$ then it's gone.

    Was the stated value you paid for $11,000? I have heard they offer less than stated value. Don’t take less!!

    Guess I need to reword. I think if someone bought it for 6000 and could fix (have it fixed) for Hagerty's estimate of 5000 it would total 11000 for a t-bucket. Sounds like a good price to me. This probably ain't a good place to advertise since just about everyone HAS a T. But...

    So your insurer does not consider it "totaled" correct?

    Bottom line. For sale, $6000 or best offer. No offers by Hagerty's deadline, they get it. I CAN'T AFFORD TO FIX IT.
