This is mine in February right after I painted it. it has a 4.6 and a 5 speed manual transmission. Was really a fun car to drive. Going to have to take it for a last ride around the block. Going to miss it.

Homeowner's or renter's insurance won't touch that. You could try to make a liability claim against the property owner (assuming it's not you), but that won't go anywhere unless the the limb was rotten and likely to fall, and the owner knew or should have known it.

Sorry that happened - really sucks. Did you get a quote with comprehensive and collision coverage and decide it wasn't worth it? Florida's a tough market for insurance.

Got a 03 GT 5 speed convertible same color

Goes in storage in winter. I fear trees. Many have gone down and barely missed it. Sorry for your bad luck

I believe that can be fixed but probably would take a pretty sophisticated shop - might need a parts/salvage car to provide the bits needed. Maybe someone can chime in that is a expert and could evaluate more detailed pics….would certainly exceed the cars “value” to fix it could be a tough call

Good luck

Trees cannot be trusted. I used to love them, but after living on huge lot full of trees (I picked it because I loved trees), I learned to nearly hate trees ... at least on my property.
The same tree in the neighbor's yard has fallen on our yard twice in the past year. It's one tree, but it's one of those multi trunk bastards, and the crooks and crotches are rotting out.
