    Lambo in collision

    Today I got rear ended by a minivan who got pushed into by another s.it box.My rear bumper is demolished. and so is the rear panel, it has a few cracks, lights etc. You have never seen a show like this. all the people and cars just stopped and were taking pictures, the intersection looked like one mega party. It was not my fault so the insurance will be involved but where and how their going to appraise the damage is beyond me. everything was custom,even the rear bumper out of another kit lambo wont fit. has anybody had any experience with kit car collision. thanks... i will post picture later.....

    ED,

    Sorry about your car - :'( -.
    I hope you'll be able to fix it. What am I saying, You Built The Thing, of course you'll be able to fix it. Hope you post pics as you go to give us newbies a chance to see a pro at work.

    It just goes to show that in the mist of dreams is the is the abrupt awakening of reality.

    Later, and good luck. :

    Sorry to hear about your crunch . I hope your are OK. As for the car, you made it 8)!
    The best thing to do is to go to a dealer and get estimate(s) on the repair job, give that to your ins. company and finally look forward to fixing it your self (even better then before) ;D.

    As for the feelings of loss ???, I am sure we are all with you on that. I may not be able to offer much since I'm not even in the same town but, If I can help in any way let me know. it's the least we can do for a fellow car nut.

    Good luck.

    Just like everyone else has said this is a terrible thing to have happen. You bring up a very interesting point about insurance in case this happens.

    I see you started with a 86 Fiero and a V8 Archie kit for the V8. You have a lot of money invested in the project. Did you get insurance to cover the cost of the vehicle or just the 86 Fiero.

    Mine is insured for just the 85 Fiero PL/PD and I have $12,000.00 into the project with out paint.

    Let me know please about insurance and the best place to get a policy for a kit car.
