    State Farm guy came to look at my car. He doesn't know anything about damages if you ask me.

    First he didn't even look at the damaged fuel tank. Open the gas door and you can see the whole thing is crushed.

    He said my drivers door needs alignment, no it will need that but right now the front gap is correct, rear lower gap is correct, upper gap is gone because the structure of the car is damaged.

    He's like I don't see frame damage.

    A Vette doesn't have a normal frame, and being bent 1/2 is pretty hard to see with the naked eye.

    Any how long story short, what he did write up is over 6500 in damages and said he's going to submit the car as a total loss.

    Sounds a little frustrating. That said, if the submission is for a total loss, you've passed this step and get to move forward. Now it's going to be all about haggling over the value they give you. Hope that all goes smooth.

    Just caught up on your thread, that really sucks, but thankfully you are not hurt and the car can be replaced. I am guessing the replacement would be somewhere between $15k and $25k??

    Good luck, and I feel for you on dealing with the wankers from the auto insurance companies that are set up for mini-vans and Toyota commuter cars, not your dream car.

    If you ever do insure another classic or hot rod that is NOT your daily driver, give Hagerty a shot. I have too older rigs (a 69 Vet and a 65 Caddy) that I have insured with them and their service is beyond great!! But I am pretty sure that they don't do daily drivers/commute cars.
