Angry another zx3 casualty

well i got in a minor accident in my zx3 the other day, due to some jerkass infront of me slamming on his brakes on a highway covered in fresh rain... i slid right into a guard rail on the drivers side, going about 35mph.

http://img130.echo.cx/my.php?image=2...12253707xt.jpg

i dont have an estimate yet, but the guy at my body shop said its about $5000 in damage. my car is only worth about 7 or 8k, so its practically totalled.

boo :(

OUCH! Man that sucks... looks like your clear corners made it out OK though (joking)!

I assume you're alright, at least you weren't going faster, that seems like a fairly significant amount of banged-up for only 35, damn [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] drivers...

Good luck getting it fixed up, I figure there's frame/suspension damage hiding under there to justify $4300?!
