I'd like your honest assessment as to a realistic salvage value on my stripped GN. The G80 8.5" rear has been taken along with the entire drivetrain. All pertinent electrical equipment including relays, harness, cruise control equipment are gone. Every stitch of interior save for the dash was taken and the dash was absolutely annihilated. Also note that the inner metal fender supports are folded down on both sides.

I'll let folks weigh in for a while and then I'll come back and tell "the rest of the story" as Paul Harvey would say. Thanks!

100, tops.
In that condition, it's scrap, with a VIN tag, IMO.

Yep, that's my GN. Little doubt that someone locally is using all this stuff with probably most of it going onto one car. That's the only reason I could see someone taking every morsel.

Thanks for the feedback folks!

It was actually recovered about 2 1/2 weeks after it was stolen. The paint has a shabby appearance in the photos because they sprayed motor oil all over the remains. In the top photo you can see pretty good reflections of the clouds in the roof and C-pillar. Also, they exposed dirt that had accumulated around the rear wheel arches when they stole the rear GNX fender flares.

I voted 500.00 b/c the rear quarters look clean and the rear bumper.

Let's see:
Body shell
Frame
Glass

If you ever find the clowns who did this,make sure they find their remains in similar condition.
They probably own a T-top car too. :)

Whoever did that to your car should be shot! That is one reason why I do not have fancy paint schemes or anything else like that on my N/A Regal, through it is not as fancy and vauled as a GN. The paint is not too good on my car and I will leave it that way untill it really needs it so it does not stick out, it is not a good idea to make your car stick out it, it is better to have it blah looking. Sorry about your car.
