Hopefully it can be saved

Oh man, sorry to hear this! Glad you are OK tho...
I think its a lot of damage, and its not worth fixing, unless you want to put a few G's in it...Just find a clean shell and transfer over...

Glad that you are OK, however that shell is cooked. The RIGHT side C pillar has deformation at the base.

If it can be fixed, I'll fix it... I love that car. Fil, looks like I will need a new rear bumper from you, after I hear from the body shop, I'll call you.

The body guy said that it can be fixed, they work on a lot of race wrecks, much worse than mine... I am keeping my fingers crossed, I would really like to save it. As soon as they give me the verdict, I will let you guys know. Just in case, I already looked at a few ads, but will wait till next week to make a decision.

Understood. It's going to cost a lot of money to fix it right though.

Glad to hear you're ok man... and yeah it may well prove cheaper to fix it since you won't get any $ for this shell, nor will you really recover anything from selling stuff off a car you buy so you pretty much eat the cost of a replacement car (which won't be cheap since you're looking for a clean body) - then you have to spend $ on installing the cage etc etc

Plus as Bruno always said after repairing his E34 after the crash - it's a very special feeling to give a good car a 2nd chance.
