A07 tells us more.
Hey guys, I'm the OP. It was 67 mustang fastback and I was driving it home from the workshop late at night. And to all those wondering, no the car didn't survive because the asshole was driving a truck, it's sitting in a garage but I don't even know if I'm going to go look at it for a while now.

I'd normally come up with a clever pun, but fuck drunk drivers. At least you're ok. Objects are replaceable, but we're not.
I don't get why you are so upset about this.. Insurance makes all your problems disappear.. If you don't have insurance, then I would understand your frustration.
As a classic car enthusiast I get exactly what has OP so upset. 6 months of hard work and effort down the drain very fast plus it's not exactly cheap to do a restoration. When your done you expect to be able to take some pride in your vehicle and be able to say I did this. I've got a few projects myself that are going to take years. Insurance won't even pay the whole thing unless you can provide a receipt for everything and prove what you have in it most of the time
I can definitely understand where OP is coming from. I would be pissed if my Mustang got destroyed in an accident. It has a lot of sentimental value, and I'm guessing the OP feels the same about his car. 6 months of hard work on a car would make it more than just a mode of transport IMO.
You should definitely look into getting classic car insurance though. The value of the car can be negotiated, depending on it's status ( fully restored, just alright condition, well-maintained original, etc ), the money you put into it, etc. That would absolutely be worth the money. I look forward to the day I can afford to get one of my own. There are some truly beautiful works of art out there on 4 wheels.
