1966 FORD MUSTANG - Irreparable

 
       
       

I guess it is because of the amount of damage rather than age as it is plated a classic. It appears that the damage is substantial especially being a uni-body car.

^ Makes me hate MPI more and more.  An insurer should be there to cover a risk, not implements its own political agenda.  Stupid socialist province.

I think, in their own twisted way, that is exactly what they think they are trying to do. Believe me more than anyone I am NOT a fan of government run private business. When "Autopac" first opened it's doors the promise was to never try to "make" money and to never open sales locations to "sell" insurance in direct competition with private insurance sellers. Well both those went out the window now didn't they?

One of the “big name” car dealers is on the board for MPI. That’s where the 95-older “rule” came from. Looking out for their own wallet.

In this sense I was using the term pollitics as from the original greek.  I.E. the process of making decisions that affect members of a group.  In this province we have given political power to an insurance company.

Ive also heard it on the flipside, many cars pre 95 didn't have airbags standard, and personal injury payouts are higher on those cars. Also 95 is the implementation point of OBD so emissions improved (theoretically) from that point forth.

If MPI really wanted to be asses, they could just change it to a rolling 15/20 year rule, anything older production would be deemed irreparable.

I'm not against all of this, but against the disregard for classics and sports cars that are not the main issue.

That mustang would net them a ton more cash if left salvageable, as im sure it would sell for 3-5 times as much (if not more) as it will as a "parts only" car.

As with any public debate, if you want something passed...make it about safety. Regardless if it’s a solution in search of a problem...
