1997 SC2
Wrench Totaled 97 SC2... Parting out.

I've got a '97 SC2 that was recently totaled. The accident was my fault, so the poor car isn't covered. I need to sell it, either as a whole or in parts, asap. I am a working student, and not having a car isn't really an option.

The car ran pretty well before wreck, though it does have an oil leak. I believe the cam cover is warped, and so it leaks. No problems with engine otherwise.
I've had no problems with the transmission.
Idler and tensioner pulleys recently replaced, belt is fine.
Three P195/60R15 tires, less than 10k miles on them. (the fourth was destroyed in wreck, but wheel may still be good)
New wheels.

All of the damage was in the rear (passenger side), everything else is relatively untouched. As far as I know, the major damages are to the back suspension and axle, and obviously the exterior.

Offers, questions, ADVICE? appreciated.

Totalled? Looks like a trailing arm or some simple suspension part broke. That, and a quarter panel and door panel, and that car's back on the road. Probably no more than $500 in parts.

Have you tried just re-seating the tire beads and airing it up again?

With the way that strut is pointed I would say there is some damage to the shock tower area. Not an easy fix at all.

I'm interested in the tires, I need a set for my SC2, possibly the wheels too.

how much you want for that cigarette lighter socket? I'm thinking about rigging a socket in my trunk for when I want to recharge my phone or whatever while I'm out.

it'll also come in handy for buddies who want a smoke break but happen to be near my trunk (of course I'd use the lighter plug responsibly..)

The rubber isolator _MIGHT_ be flexing enough for the strut to swing that far back. Might.

Generic lighter / power sockets are available at any FLAPS or hardware.
