Hey guys its time I got rid of my C70<p><br>Year-1998<br>Color-Safron<br>Mileage-120xxx<br>Issues - See photos and description below<p>As you can see in the pictures it was in a fender bender someone rear ended us & made us hit the car in front . It appears the car would need a new hood,grill, and a rear bumper adjustment <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> the car still drives fine but since this was a weekend car for me It hasn't been driven a lot since the accident. <p>title is CLEAN I'm the second owner. Please let me know what questions you guys have and I will try to answer them best I can. I'd like to sell this asap so any suggestions on other places to post would also be appreciated. <p>URL=http://www.amirhashemi.com/]<IMG SRC="http://www.amirhashemi.com/images/es2s0e6co7u1gxuwu37x.jpg" BORDER="0">[/URL]<br><A HREF="http://www.amirhashemi.com/" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://www.amirhashemi.com/images/j1g16v5a3h3ra7ir82u.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><br><A HREF="http://www.amirhashemi.com/" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://www.amirhashemi.com/images/gvmz4ug4ycob8ph60i1z.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><br><A HREF="http://www.amirhashemi.com/" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://www.amirhashemi.com/images/gjwyd95ur0t6iv157w2.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><br><BR><BR>

Re: 1998 C70 Safron HPT black leather Automatic (zdsquared)

First that's not the way to post pictures (no workee)<br>so no WE CANNOT "SEE" anything<br>Next, you need to read the first topic in this forum and FOLLOW IT<p>Year <br>Color<br>Mileage<br>Issues<br>etc <br>etc<br>No one has a CLUE as to what you're trying to sell except it's some C70 with damage<br>(Not worth very much BTW)

I think JRL is being real generous with that $2k repair estimate. My volvo's accident was worth $2500 and had far less damage than this car seems to have suffered.<p>to the OP, what did the insurance pay you for it?

Re: (Chilled Man)

Does anyone ever just contact a seller by email?<br>Many people who never usually come here post a sale but don't come back to check, <B>they expect a serious buyer to email them</B><br>I do.....

Just keep in mind, Chilled, that the carfax may be clean now, but I'm betting it won't remain that way. If the seller was hit from behind, then most likely the other insurance company totalled the C70 and cut a check for it. If you rebuild and try to sell, my guess is it will be a salvage title.
