Finally picked up my new 03 leftover. I had to go to boston to get it but it was only $14,300 for a red five speed. There are only five 03 five speeds on the east coast now.
The insurance company actually gave me more than I paid for the one that was totalled. I made $2.61 profit.

Congratulations on your new Insight. Glad you kept with the same car. $14,300 for a new 03? That is cheap (works out about £9,250 for those of us in the UK, against our list price of £17,000). :evil:

$2.61 profit on your insurance claim? I just don't know how you sleep at night......... :wink:

$2.61 probably was more than enough to pay for the drive home. :D

I'll post some pics of the wreak if I can figure out how. It did well against a pickup going 65 mph.

You said the pickup was a writeoff?

Hi RickM:

___After all was said and done, you got a great car for a great price … Free! After paying off the wrecked one that is ;)

___If I would have known you could pick up a brand new 03 5-speed for just $14K, I would have done that in a heartbeat!

___Good Luck

My daughter was going about 5mph and the pickup hit her in the passenger front of the car. It cut through the engine and spun into some guardrails. The truck was a total loss also. It was my daughter's fault not seeing the truck it was behind the pillar between the front window and the passenger door.
If she had been a second sooner into the intersection it would be a much different story.
