Esseye, I've actually already contacted them about that car. Concerned about the damage, but I saw photos before it was repaired and read through the work done, and it seems like it should be good to go. Still not convinced on the price, since there would be a hit on the sale side too. That's good to know that BOE is right there. If I go that route I'll reach out to him for his opinion... and probably buy a CAI because why not.
Geico, who is my insurer estimated it at $30k. Their insurer, State Farm quoted $47k. I paid $56k. Both wanted to total it as they didn't want to deal with the rarity, hard to get parts, etc.
I don't think it needed to be totaled and part of me was hoping it wouldn't be. I looked at it pretty closely and it looked all cosmetic. There is possibility of extremely minor frame damage on the front aluminum piece, but it looked like it was just scraped up a bit from the trailer hitch, which came through the hood. No airbags deployed either. Whenever this pops up on wire wheel or somewhere, it's going to be a great starting point for a project, track car, whatever.
As for fault, it was pretty cut and dry. We were each going about 20mph. He slowed and I figured he was turning into a driveway on the right. I began slowing too. He stopped, so I stopped about 30 feet behind him. He then began backing up and didn't hear me laying on the horn. Also, because the gearbox is so notchy, I couldn't get out of first and untie reverse in time. By the time he hit me he was probably going 10-15mph in reverse. There was nothing I could do.
