repair ideas needed

So i had a nice little 90mph run in with my old buddy The CURB last night after someone decided to pull out directly in front of myself and another vehicle that was doing all it could to stay in sight of my taillights. By avoiding any unneeded damage to anyone else, i turned left and ended up a good 75 yards beyond the sidewalk. Needless to say, everything underneath the body is F***ED. I dont know the extent of the damage but the car was sitting on the body on top of the tow truck bed. BUT THERE IS HOPE!!!!!!
I just need some help. If anyone can shoot me some ideas or some good places to look it would be appreciated. I really was trying to get a good chassis blueprint so i can just pull the broken junk off and replace it with what i originally planned to be there. THANKS again!

Well if your frame is really bent then you might be better off getting a new one. And yea, if there are curbs, try to stay below 75.

Well, its a guarantee that one our both of your subframes are toast along with the suspension arms and possibly steering linkages for any wheels that nailed the curb. Its not always the case that the frame is bent. If it is, you probably should just get a new chassis and swap everything over. The alternative is taking it to a frame shop and they will fix it.

Sounds like you need to get a new shell and go from there!

No, but i never did anything stupid where i would crash my car at 90 in any residential area. Aside from street drifting which most should try to keep safe. Theres no reason to go 90 anywhere on public streets.

I love the 'holier than thou' attitude. Everyone screws up, especially when we're younger. Ever been to the night races? We all have. Did you walk around telling people "go home, this is dangerous"? No, I'm guessing you were there racing with them. Get off your high horse, dumbdick.
