drano here, wife just totaled our 93 rmw, so we picked up a 96 this week still working with insurance on the 93 , word to the wise forget full coverage , go with appraised value . paint job on 93 was more than they offered ( 1500) and If I give em another 350 they'll let us keep her with a rebuild title , not sure what to do , love our wagon

Welcome to the group drano and sorry about your 93.Was the frame damaged and if not how hard to fix it?These wagons are tough cars and very hard to total even though the insurance companys
want to total them with very little damage.

Well value wise its not worth fixing but how much sentimental value does it have?A certain moderator brought a badly rusted 93 RMW back from the dead and into a show quality one
of a kind wagon with all kinds of wonderful mods.Boils down to what it means to you and the
missus.

93 was nicknamed pb&j ( peanut butter and jelly) dark maroon, metalic tan, no mouldings all trim color matched, took years to convince the wife how great wagons are , so I bought it for our 30th wedding anniverary, she is a believer now , drove the wheels off of it , trips to florida with the grandkids, would love to fix for myself but no garage. and already have a work van , pickup, 95 cutlass convertible and my 750 ace , storage is a problem

insurance adjuster , not to sharp .compared our 93 to sedans, just another old car to him.
I was watching a wagon in palm beach on ebay before we found this 96 in Louisville, might want to chk it out , low miles, body on the weaker side but not to bad, better than what we just bougt,
I going to have to work the passenger windows , this site is great for info , would love to catch one of the wagon fests, time and money always a problem.
sorry in advance for lack of computer skills new to this. I would love to post some pics of our toys,

thanks to everyone, adjuster just called and upped his offer to 2200 after my 500 deduct
so I am looking at accepting , payoff is 1500, leave me 350 or so after the buyback, might be able to scratch up some parts and fix pb&j or part her out still not sure
still a damn nice ride ,

located in cloverport, she had her wreck in Etown , I drove roadie home from there,
I bet this car would make a great GS clone already had chrome deleted, smothed out a bit , I just really don't need another vehicle , van, pickup, convertible, 2 wagons, and motorcycle. and I don't have a garage
We live in a 109 year old church on main st, way to many projects, any longroofs wishing to stop by are welcome definatley unusual,
I have the original paperwork for the 93 (wrecked now) she was a head turner, people would ask if she was new
course I could try and sell the cutlass convertible, use the money to really slick her back up Very Happy and slim down the fleet

pretty sure I can get 3 to 5 for the motor, and keep the trans, rearend is the towing pkg option, car had a sticker close to 30,000 in 93
Makes me sick just thinking bout it, love the wife, but she sure has screwed up a lot nice cars over the last 35 yrs,
still thinking bout the GS wagon for me , make a hell of a work truck,
