Edit: We decided to junk it, so this post is already outdated, but I like the pictures, so I'll leave it posted.
I tore down the front end of The Boss Lady's car last night. No major damage, so we are going to take the insurance buyout and fix it. At least that way we know what problems the car has, instead of jumping into a different cheap car and a whole new set of problems.
Here are a few photos, while we wait for parts.
(it looks like the driver's side is dented up in this picture, but it isn't ...)
