Totaled 92 Vert - Gauging Part out Interest

Postby br007 » Thu Oct 03, 2019 5:38 am

My 92 Vert got totaled. Insurance company of defendant is going to screw me, of course. I've totaled up my aftermarket parts i've put in this car over an 8 year period and it's about $33,000. Pretty much everything in the car worked.....everything except AC after the motor swap. Are there still people out there needing parts? If I decide to buy it back from the insurance company, will i be able to find enough interest to make some of my money back?> I'm just not seeing a lot of traffic on the board here so wasn't sure if it would be worth my time. I just don't know if i can stomach seeing the car sitting in my driveway for 6 months while i part it out. Interior on the car was nearly perfect and i cant stand to throw it all away. If there's enough interest maybe I'll go through the motions and list it in the "for sale" thread. Right now the Insurance company has possession of the wreckage and I'm trying to decide whether to take the money and move on, sue them in court, or part out. Link below for the car before it was destroyed.

I am in Marietta Georgia. Even if i don't get my hands back on the scrap, I still have a minor parts inventory in the garage that i need to unload....Nissan badge, 240sx sticker, gauge bezel, turn signal stick, spoiler gaskets, 180sx digital climate control unit, couple of cap headers that go over windshield where top comes down, etc. I will list my spare parts inventory on the Marketplace.

Ive replaced nearly every piece of plastic on the interior and both turn signal and washer column sticks. Had the fancy rear view mirror with map lights installed, but it disintegrated in the accident. Custom speedo bezel with gauges in the AC vents, new interior door handles, AC Vents, new center console, new radio bezel, new shifter boot, new ash tray, new quarter window button, working convertible top and button, just put 300zx calipers on front and just tinted windows and just added new stereo with XM....list goes on.

Ugh... Distance would make it a zero-gain deal here. :(

I've actually been looking at a bone-stock vert locally that will probably need all of that and more.

I have some parts in my garage that i will be listing for sale such as the covertible boot, speedo cluster bezel, stickers, badges,etc..... As far as the car goes, I gave it up to the insurance company since I couldn't find any one interested in a single part.
