<font color='#000000'>#### thats heaps bad... sorry to hear dude..
i know exactly how u feel... I had my old celica 5 days and i had some guy run into the back of me... fortunatly not much damage and no one was hurt... but then a month later i had a guy decide to not look and pull straigh into my lane stuffing up every single panel on the drivers side.... alot more damage this time and i ended up in hospital with a pretty sore neck... (all of this wasnt my fault) so i got my car all fixed and #### through insurance...
anywayz... I alwayz said that there was going to be a third accident.. The car was going to get written off and I was going to die... I got my car fixed and i went for a drive up to the middle of no where (half way between Wallaroo and Kadina) about 3 hours away from home! all because a few friends were camping up there and they wanted me to come and stay the night....
it was 4am, no phone signal and a total dead area.... Anywayz... was going along this totally dead straight road when a rabbit ran out infront of me... I hit it but ended up doing a full 180, hit a cattle fence and post (thankfully there were no cattle anywhere to be seen) and i ended up about 100m into a paddok...
it was pitch black.. my passenger and i both couldnt see a thing and we both had no phone signal.... we waiting about 40 minutes then we seen a car go by so i high beamed em.... thankfully it was the good al mighty coppers! Anywayz... the car was a complete ride off... but hey im still alive today and i look at it this way... now i have a newer and better celica!!!!</font>

<font color='#0000FF'>is it just a bad day for celicas or what. today i was going to send the deposit for a group buy in 6gc.net for a replica trd wing that you cant get NO OTHER F*UCKING PLACE. i was going to get the spoiler for 400 bucks instead of 1200 from trd. and my stupid radiator decides to spill its guts all over the freeway. spilling more than a gallon of antifreeze. So my car is in the shop right now as i type this. and i have to use the money i was going to use to buy my spoiler to fix my radiator. oh but the guy just called me and said my radiator isnt fixable so i have to pay 200 bucks for a new one. and to make things worse i have a job interview to go to and i have to pick up my little bro from school and i dont have my car. AHHHHHHHHHHHHH

<font color='#000000'>"so i think im mostly goin to part my baby out so if you want anything from her the only thing that is messed up is the body"

hey golden god... U said about selling the parts off of your celica... Why? By the sounds of it, its not going to be written off and it sounds fixable... so why sell the parts off?
Think long and hard be4 you make any harsh decisions... I know it probably seems really bad atm but everything alwayz works out for the best.... unless of course u have the luck i have (next to none!
)
Another thing i remembered... I only just got my car resprayed... then the night i got it back i came back out to a friends work carpark and someone had reversed into my car and taken off... luckily there was  very very minor damage... and i got it all fixed for nothing  :grin:

Just remember gg.... Its a celica... they survive many battles... and they keep going on strong even through the toughest of tough times!
THINK ABOUT IT!</font>

Its not your dad's car now is it... its yours... The final decision should be your decision.. unless u go through insurance and it will be their decision..

"hey not to be insensitive but since you are both parting out the cars, what yrs are they and what models."

Sorry zcelica... im pretty sure none of us has said that we will be parting with our celicas... I've talked gg around... Ralph's is only the radiator so thats getting fixed (no parting there) and mine... NO WAY will i be parting with it... its finally looking crazy... just got the paint job done.. mags coming soon etc.. i dont think i'll be parting with it for manya years to come!
My other celica was a ride off... The car looked fine but underneath... Jesus crist was it a mess! I'm lucky the car didnt blow up... put it that way! and anywayz.. i wouldnt be any good to ya.. Im in Australia....</font>

<font color='#8D38C9'>Golden:  Hey buddy, sorry to hear about that mess!  Omg it sounds awful, I can just picture you preparing to get hit, that must have been HELLA scary!   :oops:  Too bad there's not much they can do to fix it, but I shall keep the flame of hope burning!

Silycar:  So I am not the only one with bad luck!  Yay!  lol  I hate it, everytime I get something fixed, something else busts up...  I have yet six months to go without something going wrong.

Ralph:  Dude, that sucks about the radiator, glad you got it fixed but too bad that you lost the deal on the wing.
 btw where have you been?  You arn't online much anymore...</font>

<font color='#8D38C9'>Of course not.  She will always be your baby and nothing will be able to replace her.  I hope you have better luck with the new one.  Though maybe before parting it out, you should hold off in case you get one from the same year that needs a few extra peices?  You'll have em for free
 Good luck and keep us posted.

<font color='#000000'>Totally sorry to hear (read) about what happened!  I've been rear-ended too many times to count!  

But, hey!  I work for an insurance company (and have been involved in situations like yours).  BUY IT BACK!  Even if the insurance company totals it out, you can usually buy it back for a fraction of what they're giving you!  My company totalled out a Bronco I used to have for $1500.  I bought it back for $300!  And then fixed it and sold it for $1000.  It would be worth asking about!

Good luck!</font>

<font color='#8D38C9'>Ralph:  You can always just click on the aim/msn/yim buttons under my posts  :p

Golden:  Jeez, things seem like they arn't looking up for you at all.  That sucks that they just want to do things without you having a say in what goes down.  I hope you can buy the car back like Fordgrl said and fix it up and sell it for more than you bought it for.  Wow, lifeguard... that's hot
 Hope things clear up soon!!!

Fordgrl:  Good idea!  :thumbsup:</font>
