Turn it in to your homeowners insurance. I hit my own garage door and they covered a new one. Never know it may be worth a try -- shruggy

The spring is back on the car.No I did not record the crash because I had recorded several other videos and felt I shared enough.IDK if I want to relive the crash watching it on video again and again.I am sick just thinking of it.I can still run the car like it is all though not pretty I will get to it.

This is just an update so you can see what you could be dealing with having no insurance.Fixing my neighbors house is costing upwards of 7K$ with sunroom parts no longer being made so I am looking at custom fabrication and a problematic neighbor so this is going to drag out.

Sorry to see that OP.
2020 was a total crap sandwich for a lot of people, looks like you got your fair share.
Sending positive vibes your way.
Beautiful car BTW
