Insurance adjuster just left. He verified it's toast. :(

I don't think I'll ever get another one. The LTD is rusted to far. The 1984 convertible is toos tripped down for me to fix, and it's in dad's name.
I'll stick to trucks for a while. Tired of this flimsy, weak unibody stuff.

The two insurance companies are battling over who has to pay for it. The other person's company's adjuster came by today and said he could cut us a check for the car (not very much at all) and let us keep the car since it costs them more money to tow and discard it themselves. He's blocked until the companies decide who is paying for it.

I've got (actually in dad's name) an '84 convertible that was stripped down and had a race cage and sub frames put in. It was supposed to be a father/son project. If we end up keeping the car, I may resurrect that one as a rat rod using the running gear from this car. Might even cut the roof off and try to make a removable hard top. The rest of the parts would be sold to recoup my losses.

Our insurance company is paying for the losses, and will probably sue the other company. The other company offered $1,100, and we'd have to get rid of the car. Our company is paying about what we have into the car, and they're picking it up tomorrow. So the car will be gone.

Still might play with the '84 convertible if I can find another Lima for cheap. We've got all the T5 swap stuff that never went into the 1987. I'd need better rear gearing though (originally 3.8/auto). I'd want to delete p/s and a/c, and then carb the 4cyl.
