As I was driving along Thomas Drive, going about 50, some lady in a 90 Tercel runs a stop sign and attempts to get into the median/turning lane. As I put it in 2nd and let the clutch out, it still wasn't enough--she slammed into me, causing massive damage from the front right headlight to the passenger door. 2 years I spent looking for a del sol, when I saw it in the parking lot, I pulled a U-Turn and talked to the dealership that day, had it a week later. People say, "it's just a car, and I was lucky I wasn't hurt", but I don't even care about myself, I've been in so many accidents and so fucked up, it wouldn't be a big deal. The Samba Green Del Sol was made in 93 and 94 in the Si Model only , rarer than the VTEC model. I will take pictures of it when I can get to it, I'm just so pissed and sad now. 2 years of searching almost everyday, going on websites at least 3 times a week looking for a sol, and this happens. Even if it can be fixed, the title is no longer clean, and it may not run right. The Tanabe Racing Medalion comes in Tuesday, it WILL be put to some use, whether it be on a replica 93-94 Samba Green Del Sol Si or a VTEC Del Sol.

That sucks nick. What did the cops put on the accident report. If they say less than x amount of dollars, it will not turn into a salvage title. Hopefully they can fix it. Sorry to hear that.

if the damage goes over 75% they will "total" the car. That is when it recieves a salvage title. Just hope that your car has a high value :) In any case, if your buying your car to modify it, you kill the street value anyways. Anyone who you would probably end up selling it to would not care it's a salvage, many built cars are from salvage.


Sorry about the stress though man, unfortunate accident :(

Sue that woman for the damages your insurance won't cover (assuming you have collision) If you don't have collision then sue for everything! One thing I do know is that Del Sols can take quite a beating. This past summer mine got into a nice accident that caused $5500 in damage to it. It drives just like it did before. Good Luck, and I am sure she'll be up and running soon.

It's worse than it looks, the whole right suspension is fucked--the axle is broken, tie rods are shot--the wheel is barely even on the car, I could move it around with one hand. More pics are in : https://hondaswap.com/gallery/browse.ph...hp?album_id=300
