Well its not good but with the right parts I think it could be saved. My biggest concern is of course the sub frame all the rest is replaceable with enough time and parts.

The insurance company did end up totaling it, and said there was a twist to the entire body so if I get it back it will just be for parts or maybe an offroad rig.

My wife did get some pictures. I don't know if it's repairable or not, but looks to be beyond my skills.



Just makes me sick........we haven't even got the title in the mail yet!!!
<sigh> I miss that car!

Just found your thread. I was so excited for your project and then so disappointed to see what happened. I hope you find another Eagle.

Either way, I would buy it back.  There are plenty of folks here that can fix it.  The insurance co. will probably only charge $300 or less for it (scrap value).  The engine alone is worth that much!   I have bought back every vehicle that I or someone in my family has wrecked, and have made a BIG profit on selling the parts, or fixing the car myself.  It is worth every penny that you pay to get the car back......Rich

We talked about getting the wagon back for weeks. The biggest problem was the location, I'm sure we would've kept it had it gotten wrecked closer to home. But towing it 200 miles since it was not driveable just didn't seem feasible <sigh>
