Last evening my 98 Toyota Corolla was parallel parked on the street in front of my apartment and two (2) cars crashed into it. The left rear door and left rear quarter panel were hit directly, and the entire trunk is smushed over to the side. Also, the right rear tire, which was up against the curb, was folded underneath the car. I'm really pissed. My insurance is talking about "totaling" the car. As I understand it, that means that the cost of repair will be more than the value of the car, so they will pay whatever is less. I don't know if this is the appropriate way to gauge it, but in the Sacramento Bee classifieds, 98 corollas are going for 4-5k. I think there might easily be that much damage. It would be a real shame to send her to the crusher. I drove across the country in this car. I drove to Colorado twice and Mexico and Canada. I had the windows shot out of it by some thug, and I was locked out of it in December in the middle of nowhere in Northern Arizona. This car is a good friend and it would be a real shame to loose her. Lets all hope she pulls through.
