I think I may be just the guy you are looking for with a question like this :P Same thing happend to me last September. We were out for my girlfriends ( now wife ) 21st birthday and our DD ended up drinking. The only other option we had was a younger friend of hers that only had her permit.... better to let her drive then someond drunk right??? anyways she failed to stop at a red light and was hit by a Chevy Tahoe going about 70 MPH. The hit was pretty much right on the front bumper and threw both fenders and their inner supports over about 2 - 3 inches.
here are a few pics of mine after the accident. Does your car look anything like this?
( everyone walked away without a scratch
I am not going to lie to you, it cost a bunch of money to get it to where it is today, but it was totally worth it. Here are a few pics of what it looks like now
I had a little over $3,000 into the repair which included ( luckily ) finding a parts car of the same color for $1,200. I repainted the hood and bumper, replaced the entire front clip, radiator, A/C condenser, oil and trans lines, windshield, pass. side mirror and pass. side back door. Plan on spending at least that amount if you have a body shop do the work.
My neighbors uncle retired doing body work, and he was able to straighten out the frame no problem. There was no damage at all to the subframe / engine cradle, just the sheet metal inner structure.
I would keep your options open for a while. Do you have anywhere to store the car? I stored my car for five months before I even started to repair it. I actually was going to part it out.
Lets see some pics and get a better idea on the damage.
One more thing.... you might have a hard time finding one of our cars with a blown engine. They don't blow up very often
