Good afternoon folks. The 09' Camry LE in my sig lives smile Picked it up yesterday after work. For a whopping total of $4,909.33 damage I'm pleased for a family driver car. When spring hits or I get "the itch" I'll drain the Mobil Super Syn 5w20/0w20 out and take the 26k tough guard filter and bare all crzy Pics [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] Oh yeah: where my fat finger is pointing; was a dent there from prior owners. Shop even popped it out grin2 To right of my car in one pic where telephone pole is exactly where I was "rear ended" btw as it's where I always stop to come in to my off street parking area

Nice. 👍 I'm surprised it wasn't totaled by the insurance company. Colgate toothpaste on headlights will get them nice and clear.

Yeah, went from "initial estimate" of $4200.65 to yesterday my paperwork I made shop five me goodies of to the $4909 amount. Guess a POS Toyota Camry that's 11 years old in "salt belt" is worth $$$$ LOL!

A 2019 Hyundai Elantra since I work for a rental place I chose it. And tires were at 4/32 tread so I ordered new Michelins for it and installed them. Nice lil' fuel sipper and got almost 40mpg on highway commute to work and back

Yeah, they dicked off for 1month and 6 days too! The owner is a royal jerk and a "pound his chest" guy. I had to re wax it myself cause there were clumps of it here and there. Did that at CSOB/waste oil fired metal casting friends shop. Even he said "that fat old (censored) guy is so tight he'd make a buffalo nickel blush!"

Adam, Happy to hear the Toyota will live on to see more miles. Wasn't the case with your previous accident in the Focus. Glad to hear you're happy with the repair work, car looks great.

Not to upend you but a guy hit me on I-95 in New London CT when I was driving my echo. They shelled out $2017 to fix a 14 year old car with 402K miles on it so yes Toyotas don't appear to be written off easily. Glad all is right now...!
