Are you going to keep the car or buy it back? You might be able to convert to a salvage title and do some experimenting. Is the rad, hood, and bumper the only damage?

The other driver told me after the accident that he was a doctor and he was on an emergency call when the accident happened. Apparently it's ok to risk someone else's life for that.

I didn't think about turning it into a project car. My mechanic said there was some internal damage to the coolant system, and a couple more things I can't remember. With my wife going back to school this fall we needed a good reliable vehicle. We couldn't justify spending the money to repair a car with 178K miles.

I think it turned out well as we got a good deal on the 2008 Cobalt. Chevy has $1500 rebates right now for the 08's. I can't wait to get it and see what kind of mileage I can get out of it.
