Default My bonneville is dead

I was driving down a wavy road today and I hit some ice. The car skidded out of control. I tried to regain and hit the brake but nothing went and I slid right into a tree. Airbags went off and everything.
Front bumper was completely ripped off. I saw some of the frame ripped as well. The car came to a stop at a 45degree angle in the air. I haven't gotten an estimate yet but I'm pretty sure its dead

Dang, that stinks.

I don't know exactly what the "white curse" is, though I can guess and I don't like the sound of it. Mine'* white...

White bonnevilles are cursed to get totaled. It seems theres just no riding them out till they mechanically fail.

Sorry to hear about the car. How are you doing? Seems that the cars take quite a bit and usually leave their occupants in good shape.

If anyone needs a small part or two i can see about trying to get it. mainly small interior stuff since there really is nothing still in good condition under the hood or on the exterior.

Sorry to hear it. I was in an accident this past Sunday and I'm waiting to see whether it'* repairable or not. Glad to hear you are fine though.
