I wonder if they'd give you $1 less than the magic number that totals it out (and leaves the title alone).


...or if those numbers would jibe. 


  If it's a small monetary hit, it might be worth it to keep the title unbranded.

I don't know Earl, I didn't get the impression they were interested in negotiating. And after this last month I don't know if i could take it. I've fielded so many opinions about the whole thing, this solution is a godsend.

It would be less money out of pocket for them and they wouldn't have to screw with the titlework. They might make it easy on you (if it's even possible).


Then again, if they think your car is a regular Regal, $1 less would be $49 or $99 to you.

Negotiating is all they are interested in. The other scenario that they like is when their "customer" takes the low ball offer and keeps paying them the "insure" the next thing. That is the win -win for them . Bust their balls they need it.

I got the salvage title in the mail and scanned it to the insurance company immediately, as instructed,  only to receive an automated reply the adjuster won't be back in until Monday. So me and the Eagle are going to Hershey tomorrow to unwind. Jay Leno just might be there.

He's doing a show at the American Music Theater near me. They say he scheduled it specifically so he could go to Hershey. I must have just missed him, he was driving around in a Stanley Steamer in the area I was looking for a 58 Chev for a friend. I have pictures on FB from a friend of a friend. I'll try to put them up here.
