I'd start here, get an agreed value policy from Hagerty or Grundy, and let the dream live on.To ALL SS owners that expressed their condolences on the loss of 2014 Heron White classic, thank you for your thoughts and comments. I have not heard back from my insurance on what they are going to provide for reimbursement. Two days after the incident I went online and printed off several examples of SS with similar miles mostly 2014-2015 models. I'm hoping they will be fair though the adjuster did have a good knowledge of the vehicle and its rarity.
Struggling with what I might get to replace it?? The car was so wonderful to have and drive for 7.5 years that I would find it difficult to drive anything else. Any recommendations??
After they make you a $ offer to total it, tell them for that price you insist on keeping the wreck as it is quite rare. Then let the negotiations begin.
And this just popped up... Not the first choice, better than scrapping car.
Hello SS Forum members,
Two weeks ago my 2014 Heron White SS was hit by a teenage driver who ran a 4-way stop sign 1 mile away from my home. The front end damage did not look too extensive though the front fascia, front upper and lower grilles and hood were either destroyed or severely damaged. The car was driveable after the police arrived and completed their investigation and report, I did drive it home where on the next morning inspected the damage while waiting for the insurance adjuster.
After two weeks the insurance has declared the car a total loss and unrepairable. I used to work for General Motors and had contacted a co-worker to determine if the parts needed for my repair where available in the parts warehouses or possibly were in specific dealer inventories. The conclusion is that some of the major parts are NOT available anywhere in the US.
For those SS Forum members who own a 2014-2015 SS I am providing the parts that are not available (new) from GM.
92275622 - Black Front Driver Side Fog Lamp Cover
92264773 - Chrome Front Driver Side Fog Lamp Bezel
92264774 - Chrome Passenger Side Fog Lamp Bezel
92508800 - Hood
92278589 - Hood Insulator
92264782 - Black Front Grille
92276168 - Black Front Lower Grille
92264790 - Chrome Front Grille Opening Bezel
Some of these parts might be found in used parts websites online but insurances will not spend that kind of time and effort to do this, so they declared the vehicle a total loss.
Sad to see it go after 7 and 1/2 years of ownership with only 37,670 miles on it. Wonderful car to drive and enjoy. Hope to all SS owners out there that what happened to me 2 weeks ago will not happen to any of you.
Hello Saber One,So where did you bury the teenager? ⚰
I’m always a bit paranoid of being smacked whenever I drive in my SS.
