I finally have my beloved car back, with a brand new hood that is the right part, not the after-market thing the insurance company originally wanted to use. Hooray! The body shop even washed and vacuumed the car, which it really needed. I am back in the perfect car: not to big, plenty of power, tight turning radius, good visibility, and a just-right suspension (not too tight, not too soft). All is well with my commute again.
