SCCPC11176HL31086 - Green 2006 Houston - Smashed Rear

I need to get my post count up, so I thought I'd post some of the totaled Elises I see on IAAI. I expect using the photos doesn't matter since it's not for profit, despite their copyright. ACV of 27k. Farmer's insurance. Houston. What color is this?

That doesn't look OEM. Maybe Ithaca verde?

Stop doing this! You are depressing me

The Solar Yellow one you posted earlier might be an LTer's car. The one I am thinking of suffered front and rear damage on a wet freeway (apparently on the way to church!). There was a thread about it recently.

I think you're right. That was about a mile from my apt apparently

Wonder if the owner ever figured out how badly damaged the car was? Might be useful info for him to post on LT, especially if the OP is thinking of bidding (IIRC, he also had a spat with Geico over the payout).

Lots of damage but seems like a good price for a parts car. That front clam could be fixed pretty easily.

Non-original color could mean it's been in a tussle before.
Looks like if that was the case, it wasn't a pro-fix by the lazy overspray on the car.
I'd be quite weary of that one for anything other than parts.

The original owner is Carlos Palma. I think that color is actually plastidipped. I believe he lost control on a feeder road and it got totaled. He ended up getting an Evora. Nice guy. https://www.facebook.com/carlos.palma.9828?fref=ts
