My guess would be the computer was damaged badly. Without pictures, I can only guess about general damage.

I would say that a hit hard enough to shift the unibody is going to be a total once you get it to the bodyman

yea well the other concern he has about it getting totaled is the car also has a water title so book value of the car is only like 7500 but it was only like a 20 mph hit just got it in the right spot i guess but yea it did get the uni body tweaked it right were the battery and stuff sits

That little bit of damage is alot in GTO world. Your probally totaled. The good news is the car in peices is worth alot so if you can buy it back from the insurance you can make out fairly well.

Might be a total if the title is already branded like that. Probably piched some wiring and/or damaged the battery.
