Ouch, at least you didnt take the pole out, i took a pole out with my 00 grand prix gtp, and i had to pay the city $800 for a new telephoen pole. Alien at least you didnt smack the rear door and it still closes, could have been worse, but it still sucks that it happend. best of luck with the repair.

I feel your pain!! :(

My brother probably felt the same way when he backed into my Bonneville with a van, well, he was probably just more scared than anything.

Ouch! I know you'll get that back up and fixed again. If the plunger doesn't work, you might be able to push it out from the inside well enough so it doesn't look so bad. Whatever you do, do not take a hammer to it. It will leave little marks.

I looking at the picture more closely, I think you should be fairly ok. Your bumper cover and tail light are only scratched, so no replacement necessary at the moment. The dent itself looks like there are no really hard edges or creases, which will make fixing it easier. The only hard part will be where it meeds with the tail light, but it looks like you might be safe enough there. Paint is where you will get hit though. For hte quarter panel, they should paint it up into the trunk and follow the line of the c-pillar over to the door jam. As for the bumper, if you have any other blemishes on the back or other sides, see about doing it all while you are at it. Also ask if you might be able to save some money by disassembling it yourself. You'll have to remove the jackbox, interior carpet, antenna and rear bumpercover, which are easy to do. If it can save you an hour or two in labor cost, that could be close to $100.
