HSV VS Maloo , 2002 Monaro
So update

Insurance offered me 27k after lots
Of arguing

But I want the car back so the cost of that is unknown yet hopefully I don’t get ripped on that

Not bad price!!
Hopefuly not = again do searches .
Back in 2012 my manual duel fuel S pack VS Ute got written off , insured for $10k , buy back of wreck (with Shannons ) was $5k .
I elected not !!!, and bought a VS Maloo with 85.5 k kms on for $9.8k = ( lucky )!!!!

What's the plan if you buy it back?

Hopefully no mention of that to your insurance Co? If they know they may charge more to buy it back.

Else you mention it in relation to upping the value of the payout. After all, wasn’t circa $25K odd for a standard vehicle? You’d think a modded hsv tribute ute with rebuilt and modded driveline would add much more to the equation…

At the end of the day, it’s maths as insurance companies have a formula for the recovery costs for the wreck.… Basically it’s a stepped x% value based on the end payout :rolleyes:

Unnotified modifications? Tch tch. I would assume OP's insurer is already aware of any mods as that would no doubt be a condition of the liability for cover.

OP’s insurer, maybe… but he’s going through the at fault insurer which would probably be another insurance company…

Can get more interesting, or easier, if the at fault guy has the same insurance company :rolleyes:

1983 vh v8 sle 2000 vs v8 ute 2012 ve11 redline
In 1998 we owned a Toyota Corona Amon. Amon had been a racing car driver and had done a suspension job on that model for them. Brilliant little car. However it had done 240,000 k's and we would have been lucky to get $2000 for it however it was insured for $4,500. After picking the wife up from work we were hit up the backside by a truck while waiting at the lights and pushed into a car in front of us. Unbeknown to me the wife had suffered some backlash while I was unharmed. The truck driver was all apologetic while I was trying hard not to laugh. We got paid out the $4,500 and bought the VH we now own as her work car. Now she won't drive it because it has been modified so that has been a win for me.
