    Hi all,

    Branch or two fell on my 2005 Prius last week and totaled the car. Thought I'd see if anyone here might take it up as a project. Insurance will deduct just over $900 if I keep it so I'm looking for a bit more than that, otherwise it goes to them.

    It's been a great car - bought it from my folks so I'm the 2nd owner. Under 146k miles.

    BAD: roof on drivers side has pretty severe dent; windshield also completely cracked. Hood too will probably need to be replaced. Also, with all cars this age and mileage, there is some age related wear - some rust, scratches, etc.

    GOOD: Brand new, Michelin Premieres as of November. Probably less than 1k miles. I also did a stereo mod - has a Kenwood 900 series in dash, alpine amp in trunk, subwoofer, and focal speakers. Also, just replaced the aux battery with Optima yellow top in September.

    Pics can be found here of the damage. Let me know if you'd like to see anything else. I need the insurance money so let me know ASAP of any (serious) interest. Thanks!

    Sorry the car was in the way. Is the car in NYC or Aspen?

    Don't forget to pull your E-ZPass transponder before you let the car go. ;)

    Thanks for the reminder! Trying to remember all those little things. Car is located near NYC, just across the GWB in north Jersey.

    Going...

    I wish I was closer and could buy the car.
    But no such luck.
    I am interested in some of the parts, though. Stereo, seat covers, visor, etc
    Feel free to call me if you are able to part with some things.
