Old or new?

I'd consider that as a replacement for my S, but I could buy 4 or 5 S2000's (at least) for the cost of a new E-Type.

Not for the faint of heart...
I would have cried if I came home to that!

Hope the damage is limited to the hardtop.

E Type is the classic. The new coupe/roadster is the F Type.

Skip, I think this was just Mother Nature's way of getting back at you for thumbing your nose at her for driving the S2000 through the winter all these years

All joking aside, I really do hope you can get the car back to 100%. I hope the insurance company doesn't decide to do anything drastic.

So far, the insurance company has been very helpful. The difficult part is that I have to find a contractor to remove the carport so that the adjuster (and I) can see what the real damage is. At the moment, it does appear that the damage is confined to the hardtop and the windshield framing. Of course, water is dripping into the interior as the snow and ice melts from the carport. At least no one was hurt.

Hope that is true. Could be a relatively easy fix, and if you are willing to go w/o the hardtop, could put some sizable cash in your pocket.

Good point! I'll wait to see what the final verdict is before proceeding, but as I no longer drive my car in the winter (unless the roads are clear) the hardtop is no longer a necessity.

If the hardtop is fixable, perhaps you could also consider selling it to someone for less. I'd love to see a hardtop saved as much as I like seeing these cars rescued.

With the going rate for used hardtops ranging from $2800 to $4000, you probably could sell it to someone that will get it repaired and use it.

EDIT: Just to illustrate the kind of prices hardtops are commanding, here are two hardtop-for-sale threads

I know I'd miss my hardtop if something was to happen to it, I like being able to change the looks of the car every now and then.
