If your camaro is a 2002 and it was flipped theres not much you can do to ever make that car right again. Its a unibody and even if you did everything you could do and spent more than the cars worth it would never be the same or ride right. My advice sell your brother and buy a new car. Or sell the car to me and I'll turn it into some wild convertable creation. Your only hope is to take it to a full service body shop, spend a bunch of money for them to try and repair it. It might look halfway decent, but it will be about half of what it was in a smooth ride and safety if your lucky.

Rollovers are usually total loss. Like I said before your only chance would be to spend alot of cash to try and get it put back together right or make it into something really crazy and custom. Feel free to contact me if you have pictures or need more help/information.

I'd take it back to the dealer and see if warranty will cover it! Tell them it was just sitting in the driveway and rolled over on it's own free will.

If they buy that one, please tell me where this place is so I can buy a new car there!

Rock on...

Mitmaks--

What HK is saying is since the car is one piece...if a major portion of the car was damaged...it trickles down throughout the whole car.

Sue your brother, seriously. Small claims court might teach him a lesson. You best have some real eyes look at the damage and estimate if the vehicle can be repaired. You might be able to salvage the mechanical bits and sell the car piece meal if it's not salvageable.

Did you not have insurance?

Red face

I had a nice 1987 Camaro for 2002 christmas,but not long after i went and totalled it. Maybe three,or four months. I didn't get no chances to get this car looking better. My fault though. Foolish. I mean after being careful over and over i made one mistake and finished the car off. Nothing was wrong with it. Then i ended up with a 95 Nissan Altima which i have now burned the motor in and am looking for a motor for that just as i am looking for the Camaro body. Lost my job flipping burgers now. What fun i have ha. I don't like the 2002,or later model Camaro. Don't like there style,but i think they still look decent though.
