Josh I think it really depends on what kind of damage you're talking about and just how bad it is. Maybe some pics would help in making that decision.

We need way more info that than. If it's a bone stock 02 Gt, there's about a million others out there just like it and I wouldn't bother.

Give us more info on the car.

If there's frame damage, who knows what other underlying issues may be present too. The price of those cars have dropped so much in recent years, if it were me, I wouldn't mess with it. Part it out and get something else.

The problem with pictures is that I dont think I could show you anything that would show the frame damage ( if there is any, but there probably is)
I think what im gonna do is just clean it up and drive it until im in a better position financially and get rid of it. Its my daily anyway so it would be hard to keep it flawless

It is pretty much bone stock, but im not really in the position to do any major mods anyway, hopfully next week I can get it to a body shop where they can tell me just how bad it is .
It was hit on the front end and it seems that theres alot that can just be replaced in the front if its wrong, it looks like one of the inner fender panels is damaged but other than that I cant see any bending or crinkling or creases, so fingers crossed

If it's your only car, then I guess selling it is not really an option either, at least not until you get something else. If it's driveable, just deal with it while you save up a couple Gs and then buy something else. Don't waste your money on fixing it.

Frame damage as in like the doors don't line up right? Trunk isn't lined up right? Fender is pushed up a bit?

Oh boy. If you can look at it and see that it's bent, then start saving money for something else. They're a dime a dozen these days. Your best bet would probably be to part that one out when it's financially feasible because you won't get much for it when it bent up frame selling it whole.

I would have to agree, if it is stock they are relatively cheap.
Mileage is going up all the time, but there are some good ones out there.

Thanks guys, I was actually thinking about a fox body, ive always really liked them but I know it can be hard finding one in good shape, after this car I really think I could recongnize what to look for, structurally, and im never ever getting another rebuilt title lol

Find a cheap car in rough shape (engine blown, interior junk ....), but straight frame. Then swap everything from your car onto that car.
If its your only car, that might not be practical.


I wouldn't bother fixing it if the damage is bad.
