    May 13th I was rear ended while sitting at a stop light by a car going about 30mph and shoved into the car in front of me.

    I'm looking for links to dealerships that are selling a 93 toyota hilux. The insurance company keeps denying my link I sent them. Along with "not receiving" any other information I sent them.

    I have a beloved 93 toyota hilux which I had repainted, installed a sound system, did the bed liner, and exterior details...... the insurance company is considering it a total loss and trying to give me $1,755.40 (less than what I paid for, not to mention all the work put into it), but from what I can tell, fair market value is somewhere between $3,800 up to $5,000

    Thanks.

    Are you dealing with the insurance company of the driver that hit you? If so, call your insurance company for advice. I recently was hit and my insurance valued my truck just over 5k (fresh paint, etc). same year/truck as you.

    Thanks for the reply Clay. Yes I am dealing with the insurance company of the driver that hit me. I called my insurance and they said that unless I can find a similar model/condition/vehicle that I'm kind of out of options.

    Is location a factor?

    Where are you located?

    I'm in Oregon. They haven't discredited location as a factor yet with my submissions, so I'm going to keep throwing stuff at them until something takes.

    Yeah these are sweet. Unfortunately it has to be from a dealership.

    Maybe you should consider calling around for an attorney. most will give you super basic advice just by talking with them.
