  1. Hi all, I'm back with an update to this thread. Long story short we're selling the TC as is if anyone out there is interested in a project or parting it out themselves. Unfortunately I don't have the car knowledge to part it out myself. It is a 1989 automatic TC with major damage to the front portion of the car from a hit and run accident. It is located in Baltimore, MD. Some pictures are below. Up until the accident it was in great condition with 40k miles. Please let me know if you have any questions or need any more details. Over six months later we're still in arguments with the insurance company over coverage, but at this point we're ready to let it go. If anyone wants to save this TC from the scrap yard let me know!
  2. Thanks for the quick reply! Sorry I missed the important details, I'll edit the main post. It is a 89 automatic. Since the accident was a hit and run the insurance is saying that falls under collision coverage, which we don't have since it is driven so rarely. Trying to get more details about if it could be covered under uninsured motorist, but I'm not hopeful :/ I think we'll probably look into parting it out. Do you know if there are companies that do this, or even a regular mechanic, or is it something we'd do ourselves? I don't think I could identify half the parts, let alone take them out haha.
  3. Hi all, My grandma's 1989 TC (automatic) was involved in a nasty hit and run this weekend and since we only have liability coverage the insurance is covering none of it. The police ended up towing the TC away so we're trying to decide if it's even worth picking up from the tow yard of if we should just say goodbye. Without an appraisal from the insurance we don't know how to tell the extent of the damage and if it's even fixable being such an old car. Can anyone here take a look at the accident pictures and give any advice on if it's worth saving? Anyone have any experience repairing at TC after a major crash? I don't even know where to start. We'd love to get it back on the road, but I'm not sure a project that big is realistic for us. Pictures attached below. The windshield is definitely cracked, but I don't know how to start assessing the rest of the damage. With all that said, if anyone is interested in taking it for repair or parts send us an offer. Up until Friday everything was in great condition with only 40k miles We're in Baltimore, Maryland.
