I just tried to sleep. Couldn't sleep at all. I think I'm gonna have nightmares for a while.

Does ANYONE know where I can get a Z shell? With windows and stuff yeah.

I am hoping to do an engine swap . . . . I am worried my Z is not fixable at this point . . . . ..

I'm so sorry to hear this. I know you really loved that car and had put so much into her. Here's hoping you can acquire a shell and bring her back.

If it rolled, it's totaled. Even if it doesn't look bad, no insurance company is going to take resposibility for letting you drive a car that's been on it's head. I suggest you buy it back as salvage and pull the motor and turbos for use on another car. Then part out the rest.

Wow. Sorry to hear about the accident but I'm glad you're alive. Good luck with the rebuild. We'll be here for you (or at least the wiki will be).

I think the front might have hit first. Airbags didn't deploy. I'm sure that's not normal, time to lawyer up?
First and foremost I'm glad you are okay.

The airbags had no reason to deploy. There was no sudden decelleration.

Why call a lawyer? Didn't you push the car too hard on slippery roads?

I&#39;ve contact several auto-repair shops. They said a rebuild would be expensive but completely possible. The frame is pretty much intact, no problems there. We might have to do suspension, control arms, etc, etc, etc . . . . . and of course a crapload of panels and some small interior repairs. I am sick of traction issues, I think I&#39;m gonna do some hardcore fender rolling and get some 18x11 wheels for the rear with some 305 tires . . . . . >_< We&#39;re also installing a 6-point rollcage, probably coilovers, antisway bars and new engine management is another probability as well.
