My insurance company said they wouldn't pay to repair the damage to the car...the front grill/headlights/bumper/airdam/side fenders and hood were all damaged. Plus the radiator was leaking...not sure about the engine...probably the mounts were disturbed...

The book value on the car was about $5200...my preferred body shop had repair estimates exceeding that amount...So I settled with the insurance company. I got $6000 from them because of all the work I'd put in during the past couple of years.

With the money I bought a 1990 MB 300SL. Great car. I still miss the 300CE, it was a wonderful car...but I'm not sure it would still drive (or feel) the same after the accident.
I have been watching the closing of this car and member 5876cr has left a positive feedback for the seller. He is probably not aware of the accident.

I saw the final price when the auction ended. My wife asked if I wanted to bid on it (I don't think she was being sincere), but I just couldn't feel the same about the car.

From viewing the auction photos, the headlight on the passenger side was noticably discolored and didn't match the other headlight. I figure if someone was inspecting the car, they may have figured this was repairwork and not wear-n-tear.

I didn't post any comments in the question section of the auction about the accident. I figured let the "buyer beware". Plus I didn't want someone accusing me of tampering with an open auction on eBay.

I do hope the car was repaired well and the new owner enjoys the car for year to come. At least it is still on the road.
