Car Repair

My car is in the shop for body repairs and the original estimate was around $1,400.00. It was a hit and run accident but I can't put anything through my insurance company through July 2008. I totaled my Chrysler Sebring in July 2005.

I called this morning to see if it was ready and George who did the estimate on my car said that Michael who is the General Manager of Valley Motors Center said the total price would only be $663.00.

I spoke to Michael and started crying and I will be picking it up this coming Monday.

did you start crying before or after Michael popped for the $663?

either way, that's great! just had to spend about as much as George's estimate on my Jeep to get some stuff up to inspection standards.
