It actually looks worse since they towed it,the right wheel and front bumper were still attached, although the wheel was tucked at about a 45 degree angle. The left side is where the main impact was. The other insurance company has accepted 100% liability, and I am waiting for the amount they will pay me.
The other car was gone the next day, but it took a beating also.

That would buff out...

As for new cars family friendly in manual...

You can get a front wheel drive nismo juke in manual..
Some HRV's were available in a front wheel drive manual.
and lots of good Subaru options.

Hope the insurance company hooks you up.

I was referring to the fact that my right side was more restricted than my left side during the crash. My right hip(muscles) are bugging me one week later. Stayed in bed all day yesterday.

My neck has been a problem since I bounced it off the windshield of my dad's VW Squareback in (my very first) a similar accident at 17. A girl in my class since elementary school stalled out making a left turn in front of me. The windshield landed on the hood of dad's car. I wish my back had been allowed/not allowed to move the same way on both sides last week. That was my point.

Not enough compound in the World. I am a car guy, zero interest in climbing up into a car. My wife moved from a Volvo turbo wagon with a manual to a XC90, I just need room for passengers.

I got a call from the limo company's insurance adjuster today, they told me how much they would give me, but wanted to make getting rid of the car my problem. Thank God I have collision coverage! I do not know why they sent someone to look at it, everything(including 2 week old rear tires and 5 month old front tires) was listed as average with a deduction for condition. Hoping to do better with Progressive(hate them), at least they will dispose of the car.

Norwalk-and I think the car should be gone by now. I had no idea that the limo's insurance company was going to do this, and internally questioned its value as a parts car.

Imagine the scene points you would get for needing a chair because of your harness and then rolling up to the next cars and coffee in this.
