Rear fascia damage, pretty pissed

So I am putting my car away for the winter, cleaned it up all nice and sad to see it go. The only worse thing about waiting for spring to come back, is now waiting to have to ****in fix this damage.

I had backed the car in, and my old man put the fuel stabilizer in the car ( I store it at a friend of the families, has a HUGE establishment.)

Anyhow, I start the car up to let the fuel cycle but only had one foot in the door and forgot the car was still in reverse ( I pretty much ALWAYS, and I mean ALWAYS leave it in neutral with the parking brake ). Well the parking brake was on, but it didn't do dick all, I picked my foot off of the clutch thinking it was in neutral and the car stalled, flew back for some reason and went reverse a good 2 feet right into a wooden column. You could see the tire treads on the cement pavement, parking brake didn't stop it.

So here is the damage. Not sure if a good bodyman can fix this, or if I will need a whole new rear fascia. I am so pissed off at this, considering it is something that I never do, I am so adamant on putting it in neutral and this is the ONE ****in time I didn't and this happens. Anyone know the price of getting something like this repaired ?

Ouch! Hard to tell in those pix. I see lots of reflections and maybe some washout from the flash?

Anyway it looks like you got both the rear fascia and the rear quarter panel. A good body shop should be able to fix that for about $1K.
