Ouch. ya really tagged that pole good. Well, consider yourself fortunate to still be amongst the living and heal up. While I haven't trashed a vehicle lately..been about 20 years since my last crash and burn, **** happens. Ya got the right plan going, strip the wreck for anything useable and go look for another Bonneville to play with.
(No recriminations for not having collision coverage. I pretty much do the same on mine. Figuring if I screw up and waste the car, that'* my own fault and I eat the damage. Cars as old as ours aren't really worth spending the extra money to the insurace company.)
BTW, ya might want to throw a box worth of baking soda up into the front fender area and hose it out well. Somewhere up there was a battery that'* prolly dumped it'* acid all over the place. Might as well neutralize it before it wrecks anything that otherwise was salvageable.
Good Luck and Get Well
