Hi, I am new to this forum, am happy to find it.... I "had" a 2006 Top Banana Charger Daytona.  March 9, a guy blew a stop sign, t-boned me and totaled it.  (I could have been injured but just bruised and stiff and sore)  We are "BATTLING" with the insurance company.  It had less than 15K miles on it.  They are saying they can't find

Sorry, hit the wrong button b4 I got my post finished....  The other guy's insurance company is comparing my car to Chargers (without the Daytona package) AND cars with 30K+ miles which is NOT A COMPARISON as far as I'm concerned.  My car WAS in EXCELLENT condition.  Any thoughts?

"Fair market value" can be established easily by referring to auction sales and eBay actual delivered prices.

The insurance company finally offered us $24,950. today..... I was so in love with my "top banana"..... I have found a PlumCrazy that is about 100 miles away, with less than 6K miles....
Thanks for the replies....Can you please tell me how to look for a car that has already sold on ebay, so I can see what was paid?  and thanks for the Charger forum website, I will be looking @ that.

Glad you're ok. That car is not a loss, it's not a classic. Very easily replaceable.

Search ebay for closed auctions by choosing 'advanced search options' then 'completed auctions only'.

I'd take that and run....run very fast.

My '08 Hemi Orange Daytona with 8500 miles on it was only worth $19,100 as a trade in back in November of '09.....damn thing stickered at $39.5k rotz

 SilverR/T ; in terms of # of Top Banana "Daytona's"  built in 2006 ,  it is probably just as rare as your SVT Mustang, which you wouldn't want to hear from us..." not a loss, easily replaceable ". shruggy

   Yeah , it's not 40 yrs old, but obviously she's an enthusiast for them, being that she's thinking of replacing it with a plum crazy purple version.

I think you did good at that price.

A dealer had a new #2 off the line plum crazy '07 Daytona on the lot last summer for $24,900. There was a new white 09(I think) Daytona for a little under $30K at another dealer last fall.

It sounds like your insurance company is being generous. I agree with everyone else when they told you to take the money and run. I doubt I could get that much for my fully loaded 2006 SRT8 (which is several thousand more expensive than a Daytona) if it were totaled. The bad thing about the LX Chargers is, once the Challenger came out, the re-sale values on the once hard-to-get Chargers (especially the rarer versions like the Daytona and SRT8) completely plummeted. Lots of people are trading in their Chargers for Challengers, so there are a lot more of them out there on the used car market now.

Good luck with your new Plum Crazy Daytona!

I am a little comfused here!

On a normal newer used car, at least here in Norway, it is (or should be) the price you need to pay to get a identical car FROM A DEALER.

If they have problems to value your car, they should call 5-6  DODGE DEALERS and ask for a price/offer.........then offer you somwhere in the area of average og the numbers they came up with....then negotiations starts, due to extra equippment, low milage, etc  Twocents

Thanks, everybody for all your great thoughts, advice, and ideas..... I looked @ a Challenger, (didn't test drive).  The dealer wants to put me in a "300", and sorry.... it just looks like an "old lady" car..... drove it, didn't like it!!!!!!
My husband wants me to get a Sub-lime Green, but it just doesn't do it for me either. 
I do realize my car wasn't a 40 year old classic, but it was MINE, and I loved it.... Am grateful that I walked away from it, and I know it's replaceable, so am trying to move forward.
I will keep you all posted what happens this week, and news on the "plum crazy"

I've got a Top Banana 06 also and a faster color yellow Rumblebee.  Are you on Rumblebee.org?  I saw the same problem there.  I'd miss my 06 and would probably start by holding out for a yellow Superbee if they couldn't find another Top Banana Daytona.  Negotiations start where you want them to.  Tell them you're addicted to Yellow Mopars.  I ordered my car from the brochure so I got exactly what I wanted.  Why settle for less?

Hey.... "its a 426".... YES.... as a matter of fact, there were 2 yellow hemis in our garage.   I bought the RumbleBee for myself..... then decided it was a bit more of a truck than I bargained for, so just a little "arm-twisting", and it became my husband's.... And yes, he is on Rumblebee.org, his call name is BeeDaddy.
The dealer here in town HAS a Super-bee, but can't get him to go down on the price enough for me to afford it.....What is your call name on RB.org, I'll have BeeDaddy look for ya!!!!

All that yellow in the garage looks pretty.  I've got more yellow than garage space.  My '66 hemi charger is yellow also, but not Solar Yellow.  The Bee looks especially awesome with the '66 on the black and yellow trailer behind it.

If the other guy is at fault in the accident, I'd be holding real hard for an adequate replacement vehicle. 

It's YLOHEMI on .org.  What do you mean more of a truck than you bargained for?  I have no plans to replace the truck or the R/T Daytona anytime soon.  They are still fun.

I didn't take a picture, but my local dealer just put out a yellow Challenger. It's the first one I've seen.

 You might want to check out the Challenger in yellow or purple before you make a purchase.

Insurance update.... Our insurance company (State Farm) instead of sending an adjustor out to look @ my crumpled up Charger decided to have an independent adjustor go look @ it.  This has definitely turned into a giant "cluster". So I guess it is a "wait and see" now.... Guess they didn't think they could be impartial, not sure.  Just know I'm ready for a car OF MY OWN, not a rental!!!
"its a 426", what I meant about the truck being more than I bargained for.... it just seemed pretty big to drive.  I had back surgery on '07, and we've got really nice running boards on it, but for a while it was all I could do to get up in it.  I do love it though!  It is fun to ride in!!!!!!!
