My Beloved 126 Declared Totaled: Advice?
My 1989 300SE, 153,000 miles, a beautiful car maintained meticulously, was rear-ended by an idiot in a Range Rover while I was stopped in a freeway backup. The impact --probably 30-35 mph -- buckled the left rear quarter and trunk lid, and loosened the bumper and exhaust. State Farm today offered me $2100 for a salvage title or $2400 to scrap the car. Their estimator figured the repair cost at $6200. I want to keep her and fix the damage. Has anyone run across a similar situation? Have I any recourse? This is just making me sick.
