Michael, I can't believe what I'm reading in this thread. Some may say it's only a car, but damn I can't even imagine how you feel about this after all the love and work you put into your beautiful Coupe. I feel for you man.

Unfortunately, most of us have much more into our cars than we could ever hope to recoup from insurance or a sale. Unless you can get someone to write a policy for an agreed upon value, and can afford to pay the premium, you have to accept the possibility of having to start over. Sucks, but I've been through it a number of times. It's the price we pay to drive these old beauties.

First time it was a 1966 SAAB 96 Monte Carlo 850. I got the book value payoff and after negotiating, they let me keep the car. Thus was born the world's only 1965 SAAB 95 Monte Carlo Station Wagon...

Damn... After seeing the pics, not a surprise, though.

Buying it back is a given, right?
