today i had a close call with a pedestrian that caused me to swerve onto the median strip and take out a "keep left" sign, it has destroyed my front bumper, pushed back a wish bone behind it, bent my radiator (and a/c panel in front of it) busted (suspected) transmission hose, suspected sump damage, and a few cosmetic things, i was just looking for a rough estimate on how much it would cost to fix it.

I'd add pictures but the horror is probably too much for some

Anything from $1000 to $10000...

Add the pics, I'm sure we'll be ok. It's not the first smashed commodore we've seen..

Just let your insurance sort it out, your car will feel brand new when it comes back.

Yeah cheaper to buy a new VZ than fix it.
