the money spent on a "track" model can be better spent on aftermarket goodies to create your own "track" model.

I honestly would not recommend rebuilding your car. You have received damage to the A-pillars and roofline. Not to mention the rear driver's side quarter panel. These parts will have to be cut from a donor car (or bought new from Nissan) and welded and bonded onto your chassis. This is expensive.

I know you have strong sentimental attachment to your car, and I don't blame you, you put a lot of work into it. Regardless, you are better off in the long run starting with a new Z. Because even if you do rebuild this car it will now be under a "salvage" title with a "major collision damage" mark on your CarFax report, making future resale value near worthless.

Before going any further, you need to get a vehicle buy back price from your insurance company and decide what will be the most economical route for you to pursue.

As an FYI to those of you who have heavily (and expensively) modified Zs you may want to ask your insurance agent about carrying additional coverage. By default insurance policies will only reimburse you a "fair market value" for your car. Which assumes a bone stock, zero mod car. It is possible to switch to a policy where you insure your car for a fixed dollar amount. This type of policy is generally more expensive, but can pay off if you ever have to use it.

Once again, sorry about the ride man

Regards,
Ronin Z

I'm at a crossroads right now. Get a new Z for alotta money, swap engines, and maybe do new wheels/tires . . . . . or do a COMPLETE REVAMP of my current ride.

I can't decide!!! Part of me wants to just do the new Z, engine swap, easy etc, etc . . .

Another part of me wants to do everything custom, and get her rising from the ashes again. :(

PS - I didn't realize that I got my mother and her boyfriend in one of the pictures. Lol.
That sucks...Glad you got out of it alright...

After you decide what you are doing and you still have money to burn, pm me and I will gladly take some of the green off of your hands. J/K

WOW! glad to see that you're okay. Those pix were pretty brutal nice to see that the safety features of the car really work. I'm going to have to agree with everyone else on not rebuilding which it seems you're going to do anyways. Can't wait to see the next beast that you're going to create.
