Sorry to hear, OP - don't know about repair cost except that when replacing or straightening (will never be the same) metal pan underbody that is the car's frame, then it must get expensive. Not to mention suspension, panels, paint, plastic, more paint, labor hours, fudge factors, etc. Can add up and if insruance says it's totaled, there you go.

Man I don't know what I'd buy if not another 5th gen. Maybe a 1st or 2nd gen *if* I could find Barrett-Jackson quality?? We could fly there bid, win, and then have to have it shipped home. But then get 14 hwy mpg like I used to get with my '71 Chevelle 307? I'll take 24 hwy mpg with the 5th gen SS. Also wouldn't have half the comfort and convenience options. Yes, 1st gen would be a true classic, numbers match, original paint, etc., but a lot of people's eyes go just as wide for newer ones. Not saying the older gens are bad, just different and not as good a match for our needs. Anyway, my classic '69 or '70 would be a B-Body, Caprice or Bonneville. Yes, I'm weird, haven't changed much since high school.

So what ever your "style" is, go for it!

It may be totaled but it is repairable. It will live again with a salvage title.

Yah it could be fixed up real nice with some good quality aftermarket parts and be a beast on the road and even better than new, somebody could get a good deal and go to town on it.



Good Luck with your search OP

Well I hate to say it, but if some turd hits me and it looks like that, the insurance better total it, I plan on going 200+ in mine next year or so, and I don't care who rebuilt it, no way I'd do it in a car that had been hit like that.

Add me to the list , for what I'm seeing , it's not a totaled car

In order to total a vehicle now, repair costs have to equal 100% of the vehicles value. 50% is where they state a Declaration of Depreciation. Here are some pictures of the damage:
Mine looked worse than yours last month after contacting a cement divider. New front bumper, new front fender, new door, new rocker, new control arms, tie rod end, a little plastic added to the quarter panel, Paint, and both left wheels replaced at $750 ea. plus the tires and total was $8037. Al GM parts.

I have a hunch the adjuster is the one that totaled it. There may be hidden chassis damage we can't see. What's the value of a 2010 LT these days? $12K in damage could total it?

BTW, I say use the $30K plus and get an SS, you will love it.

Glad to hear to hear that it got totaled actually. As much as it looked repairable I don't Think I would ever like to take back a car that has been in such as strong accident.

I agree, totaled?? Really? I was expecting to see a pile of scrap metal.

If you like the black with silver, maybe look into a 45th. They have silver/gray stripes and a red stripe. Plus you get the red white and blue stitching on the inside.

Sorry for your loss, but it gives you an excuse, you said you had a 2LT RS maybe you can find yourself a nice SS for a good price that would look nice in the driveway.

Me too. If needed I would be willing to put in a little extra to make it happen.

Sorry for your loss OP. At first after viewing the pictures I thought the same that the damage seemed fixable until I read that the OP already heard back from insurance company saying it was totaled. :(
