I posted some more photos of the aftermath here, after I had a chance to do a thorough check of the car. Not pretty.

I've been trying to prepare for both outcomes, as right now it's just a waiting game while I'm waiting on the claims adjuster. I've called around to a few body shops and have checked OEM prices on body panels, just to try and get an idea of what the repair cost would be vs. the ACV of the car (i.e. trying to do the math and see if they will actually total it out or not). The body panels (not counting the doors because those have tiny dents that are barely visible) total around $7,500 +/-. By my calculations my car would need to have almost $20,000 in damages to be declared totaled. So I'm not sure what to think right now

My husband does not want his Challenger totaled, and it likely won't be (body panels for those cars are surprisingly cheap). Plus he has an aftermarket hood that's been sitting in the garage ready to throw on, anyway. Lucky him...
