I'm sorry to say but i agree with your dad she'* gone. There are plenty of parts that you can take off and sell body panels, motor, sensors, all sorts of stuff.

so sorry about your care and glad that your ok other than the loss of your bonnie. that is one bad hit so very sorry

Eli...That is a bad one. Very glad that you were unhurt and walked away from it. Like sawgunner said...if you're insurance company will let you, you can part it out and recover some $$ from your loss.

Thanks to everyone for your sympathy. It was an awesome car and I'll definitely miss it.
For now, I'm back to driving my old '93 Caravan...

Everything else is going to be nickle and dime stuff. Once its gutted, find a friend with a flat trailer and tow it to a scrap yard. You might get $100 for the body.

Shoot for Craigslist with the good parts. Last resort would be E-bay.

Take the money, find a used lot, and use it as a down payment on another Bonneville. This boat saved your *** once, I'm sure it could save you again.

you can sell a lot of parts off that but the shipping will hurt for bigger pieces like doors, hood, fenders, bumpers but the interior stuff someone will want i saw somewhere that someone was looking for the camel interior don't remeber what they wanted from it but i think you have it just to throw that out there you have a lot of sensors and such under that dash that lately people are needing to fix theirs so don't give up hope yet you can still get your money from the car yet keep your chin up man good things will come

I just found out another sad story.
My friend'* mom has a Bonneville too, and yesterday the same thing happened to her, only she hit a fire hydrant. Her car was totaled, too. Two cars in two days... unbelievable...
