he said frame was toast. im taking his word for it being totalled. keep in mind, fixable or not, if damage exceeds value, its totalled. its not worth much, as a car.

That damage is easily fixed but yeah for an old car its totalled. I would not even have full coverage on a older car like that but I guess in this case it may help.

The K frame is what'* smashed, that'* like a $50 part at the junk yard :P

Anyways, being an older Cirrus/Stratus, it'* for sure a total loss. They're really not worth much of anything.
