When I started watching this site, I couldn't wait until I had enough posts to become a member. I never imagined that my 25th post would inform you all that my beautiful blue baby, the '84 Jimmy with only 39,000 miles on it, 17 mpg, perfect interior, and shiny paint, has been totalled by the insurance company of the guy who hit me(State Farm). It still drives fine (needs alignment), but they estimated the cosmetic damage at $4,000. The shop I went to said it would be more than that. What should I do? Thanks to everyone for their help and ideas. I am pleased to tell you that after aggressively talking with the insurance company (calling everyday 4-5 times a day for 7 days, and then calling the state insurance commissioner to complain), the situation has been resolved. The Jimmy is going to the shop next week for repairs, an entirely new paint job, and then I'll decide what to do with rest of the money. I'm glad that she'll be on the road again in a few weeks.
