(Editor’s note: One of the most popular stories we’ve shared since we launched the ClassicCars.com blog was about Cassie’s 1968 Chevelle Concours. We’ve just received the following note from Cassie:)

This car was totaled in a rear end accident August 4th at 3:00.

The lady took full responsibility, but due to the facts that this was a neighborhood project, we had no receipts to show.

Numbers matching!
Numbers matching!

While the Internet says the car is worth $15k and up, my lawyer and I fought to get from $11k to $13k. Luckily, I managed to buy a car — a Chevrolet Malibu, still a 1968 and, surprisingly enough, with matching numbers (but not a Concours) — from my Dad’s friend at a steep discount and we will be starting anew on another project!

I just want to say thanks to you, you all love my car and know how I feel and I appreciate all the support!

(PS: Cassie suffered whiplash in the crash but said her back and neck pain “are nearly gone now.”)
