If you could post a picture, you can probably get some input on whether or not the car is fixable. If you got hit by a tall truck... chances are that it is not. But there would be plenty of people on the list willing to help you move some of the parts instead of sending it to the junkyard.

If you decide the fix it, your best bet (I am guessing by the damage you described) would be a parts car. Then it would even be a toss-up of whether you should just switch all your stuff to that body, or cut both bodies and try to fix it.

Is there any damage in the trunk floor? How far up the quarter panel does the damage go?

here, go to www.photobucket.com and register, then upload the pics and post them here... I use photobucket and love it...

After that its the regular imiage tags to post them...

do it like this [img]addy of where the pic is[/img] and the pic will be diplayed..

I have used car domain, and a couple of others but I like photobucket the best..
