I have a friend who just wrecked his P10. He damaged his hood, left and right fenders, bumper and right head light, radiator is pushed in and the front bumper support is dented in pretty good as well. His frame is bent in the front and a little under the right fender after we pulled it off. How much do you guys think it would cost to straighten out the frame? Is it worth the time to fix this car or just cut his losses and pull the engine and swap it into something else?

It'll be hard to say exactly how much it would cost. If he brings to 3-4 body shops they'll give him some "ballpark" quote. :rolleyes: Even if he did have it fixed, something may come back to haunt him later. :monster: :paranoid:

I'd say salvage what he can and start over.:*(

have it checked out...

A P10 ? What year? Options? Miles? A P10 can range from a $1000 car to an $8000 car ('91, no options, 150k miles to a '96 G20t with 50k miles)
Use the online Edmunds and Kelly book to get a value on the car, get the quotes and do a cost analysis. It would be senseless to spend MORE on the car than it is worth. It would be also be senseless to write-off an $8000 car because of $2000 worth of damage.
The key to the extent of damage is to measure the body points. There are key spots on the "frame" to measure to determine if a body alignment (VERY expensive) or just body panels (affordable) are needed.
