..if it still runs good, what'* the prob?

I'd say, whatever new vehicle you get, fix the hood and lights and keep it for a winter beater. You can't beat an SE Bonneville for a snow car!

Indeed true.

Heavy, spacious, wide tires. Where can you go wrong?

I guess I haven't explained the damage well enough. Or maybe I just overestimated the repair?? I don't know how the heck I'd pull the radiator support out?? I guess I could attach a come along to the back of my truck and back up the Bonne or something...
Or maybe I could have a body shop ONLY pull the support out, and do the rest myself. Body work is definitely not in my bag of tricks!

Hood is four bolts.....the headlamps....couple bolts....you're good to go....

But if you were to post pics of all the damage...i could more then likely give you ways, ideas, and or pointers on how to fix it. I worked in a body shop for a while before I found this site
