Mathieu -
First, glad to hear that the driver came through OK. But the damage really doesn't look that hard to repair, assuming the door frames aren't distorted. By missing the bumper, the energy was absorbed by the fender sheet metal, from what I can see - which would mean that the frame and bumper supports are still pretty much in alignment. What I see from the pictures is a left rear fender, trunklid, and under the trunk sheetmetal. I acquired an '83SD with similar damage, and a very good body shop made it look like new for under 2.5K! With the insurance payout, you could end up with a very nice car - one that you know, have invested in, and probably better than what you can find on the market.
