Oh boy, would I love to do that. But, don't think it's gonna work. If the insurance Co, calls it a write-off, they'll take the car and sell at auction. I dunno. I would love to hold on to her.
You can buy it back if you want. Take the new car and if the old car is cheap, grab that too! Sorry to hear though. I'm in Scarborough and we didn't get it nearly as bad as you folks closer to downtown.
