That sucks man. Good thing your ok. Half the people around here should not be allowed to drive. This state gives anyone a license. That 94 should make you feel better. No emissions should make you feel better too.

Fawk. Sounds like its time for a shell from the isellmiataparts.com guys (if you are back in Chicago now) maybe? Then a MT get together and swap EVERYTHING party.

Open the hood and snap me a couple of photos of the engine bay on the right side, and a couple of detailed photos of the shock tower area. Also snap a couple photos of the undercarriage and right side suspension. That looks very fixable from the outside.

I don't have the car with me... the shock tower was completely tipped in towards the engine and the frame around the passenger door was shifted back, if that makes sense... my car's kbb value is probobly only 5k or so.... plus im out of state so if the insurance compay wanted to repair it they would also have to cover food, lodging and rental car til my car is fixed... thats big $$$$. :(

Ah, lame. Settle with insurance, buy a clean straight shell, buy your car back, and swap all the parts. Sucks but if you do it right you'll end up with money in pocket.
