story:

I was at a graduation party today for my friend, that my band was playing at. I get there, 20 minutes later, I realize I forgot my footswitch for my amp, so I decided to drive back home really quick to pick it up (I only live 15 minutes away). So, I'm parked on a hillside, and to the rear left of my vehicle, is a telephone pole. I start to back up, and slide down the hill into the pole. Wonderful.

I have a 2000 Chevrolet Blazer, with a rear hatch with the spare tire on it. So I struck the pole with the rear spare tire, and it shatters the window, and dents the tailgate like hell.

So what I'm wondering is, if any of you are good with cars, an estimated total to fix it, by way of not turning it in to the insurance company, just going to a car junkyard and buying a new tailgate and window.

tl;dr: at a party, hit a telephone pole, ****ed up my car.

It'll be pricey. The frame may be warped and the bumper is most defintly popped. The tailgate is the least of your probems tbh. Unless of course it just hit the hatch, then all you need is the new hatch.

Actually, I'm pretty sure it is.

If you go to a junkyard and can actually find something to fit your vehicle, I would think that the max amount it would cost you would be about 300 bucks.
