    I purchased the SuperBee on 11/06/06 with 3 miles on the odometer. Lots of memories and good times with friends. Then after 10 yrs and 122k miles it come to an end on 10/13/16 while traveling northbound on I-77 south of exit 79 in Rock Hill, SC, at 11:30 pm. I was traveling around 60-70 mph when a deer ran across the highway. My wife Lisa and me were not injured. Yesterday the insurance company informed me it was a total loss .

    Dang man.. Sorry to see that.. I guess it's the age of the car? As bad as it looks, it doesn't look to bad to me.. Also glad you guys weren't hurt.

    I haven't spoken with the insurance company about buy back. They just sent an email stating they will call within three days. It was a nice ride, no issues with it and ran strong. Lots of good performance upgrade parts.

Yesterday the insurance company informed me it was a total loss .Thank you all for your comments. I had been thinking of selling it but its hard when its a joy to drive it, more so at WOT.:D At least one of my last drive was playing with a Porsche 911 Carrera at xxx mph, it sure save me some time of the trip. I'm sure he was surprised that I was able to keep up. As he exit the hwy he gave me the thumb's up. The looks and performance of the Superbee is what made it so hard to sell. I have a sweet 2016 BMW M4 convertible, its fast, handles great but it does have the sound and feel of the Superbee.

    Thank you, I bought the BMW last October, oddly enough on 10/13/15, this accident was on 10/13/16. What are the odds?
