Car Woes

So, my car is a total. I would cost more to repair it than it's worth, by probably twice.

I'm waiting for the annual salary/bonus stuff in April, so hopefully I'll get some money that way. Otherwise, I have to wait for the next stock trading window, and cash in my stock, at a loss (it's trading at less than it was worth when I got it.)

Fuck.

Yes, I could do a jackleg repair, for a couple hundred bucks, but it wouldn't have any collision coverage after that, and it would be a "salvage" title. Yuck. I don't want to go there.

Arggggggggh!

I think the salvage title stuff only kicks in if you take the settlement from the insurance company. If you refuse the settlement, and say "I'd like to drop the claim", then the insurance company doesn't communicate the "totaled" verdict to the DMV, who then don't do the salvage title thing.

What a pain in the a$$. Been there done that last Dec. and Jan. Fingers crossed that you get your extra bonus.

Um...
My friend plantgirl has, I believe, not sold her old car yet. It's an older Mitsubishi LRV (think *really* mini van) with a recent transmission. You might want to ping her about it.
